It's the last day of August! Yippee! To me, ending August represents the (near) beginning of Fall. You know.. September/October/November group!
I saw this picture, and it reminded me of the end of Summer. Not sure why... just seems appropriate. Summer 2011 turned out to be both eventful and uneventful for me, as well as several of my friends. Who knew so many of us would lose our jobs this summer? Who knew just a couple of weeks after my dear blog friend, Leanne, lost her job - then our readers would then learn of yet another job loss.
Sign O' the Times for sure.
As I was driving home from my friend, Telisa's house, I began to think about my journey. I need to focus on the journey part more. I think I am caught up (again) on the Destination. As I pulled to the stop light, all anxious about the interview the next day, I happened to look across the street and see these huge jets. The jets were on display at the Museum of Aviation (Warner Robins is an Air Force town) - and those jets made me think of going anywhere and everywhere. I started wondering, "Where have they been? What did they see?" Perhaps these very planes helped save thousands of lives. It did AMAZING things.. yet only to rest there - in Warner Robins, Georgia.
Perhaps that's how I need to view the future - maybe during the journey I will do "amazing" things, possibly "save lives" lol... who knows! And maybe I will just end up resting somewhere like middle Georgia.. the future is so unclear.
Destination: Unknown is sooo fitting. I don't think I will ever be settled or satisfied, because I am constantly looking at What's Next. Maybe I should just look at What's Now?
Luckily I have been through two interviews and will have a third interview on Tuesday of next week. So far I have interviewed for the Morning Show TV Producer position with Fox; the Communications Manager with my hometown's CVB; and then just yesterday I received an email for an interview for the Web Producer position for Fox. It's been 4 weeks since I lost my job, and now I have 3 interviews. Solid positions - not a bad deal at all. The good news is - I could see myself doing any of the 3.
Most of these positions are not planning on making decisions until mid to late September. It sort of freaks me out to wait that long, but on the other hand, kind of allows me some time to just BE.
Life is a little chaotic in the sense of the "Great Unknown." It is also equally exciting to be embarking on a new adventure - in the near future. Or September has always kicked me in the A$$ - and I could bomb out on all three. We'll see.
(If you don't know what I am talking about with September.. oh.. just look through my September Archives in any given year.. you will see. ;-) )
Either way - a new job is around the corner, cooler air will be sweeping through soon, and pumpkin spice lattes will be available at a Starbucks near me!
PS - YES - Leanne.. YOU DID win. ;-) Fair and square. hahaha
This song is stuck in my head..
