a smile and a ribbon;

In the year since I graduated finding full time work is something that has not come easily.
 I am one of the lucky ones who managed to find a part time job and even though it was 
a whole other city away I counted my blessings. I know I am not the only one of my friends
who was in this situation but it really truly got me down - silly I know.
Recently I remembered something my Papabear said to me about positive thinking and so I
decided that the only way things were going to change and get better
was if I kept positive and told myself they were definitely going to happen. So I applied for some
jobs and I thought positive and I got TWO interviews.

There was one I wanted more that the other (but I obviously went along to both)
 and so I kept thinking about just how much I wanted it.
I was told over five hundred people had applied and that I was in the lucky 100 that were
being interviewed and out of those around twenty would be hired with only seven full time positions!
Oh my gosh, what a lot of pressure. 

So I went to the interview and tried my best not
to ramble on and keep my calm and be myself and be honest.
So for the few days after my interview I kept telling myself, this is it, just keep positive.
And on Monday, I got a phone call from my new manager telling me that I'd really impressed them and that they'd like to offer me a job at the new Urban Outfitters opening up in my town. 

So from now on I've made a promise to myself to keep positive, it's not a bad life, it's just a bad day. 
I also decided a new job needs a new hair cut, and so I decided to do something daring 
and got a full fringe too. Eeek! Let me know what you think.

Tomorrow I'm going to the Lake District for the day, and I absolutely cannot wait, it's my favourite place in the world.

Sincerely, Alexa
