my life story

Friday, May 02, 2008

Once again it's limbo time. Akimbo in limbo. It's what life is all about, being able to navigate this space. The space in between the action. I'm good at action. Waiting, not so much. You can search back through this blog and find many similar entries such as this. This time reminds me of how I felt before the MAJOR events in my life, getting married, having Davey. THE BIG MOVE TO LA. So close and yet... 10 weeks away. Oh it will be here before I know it. I know that, I know that but it's not here yet is it? It's not here NOW. To live in the now, now, now. It's hard.

Still, I'm in great spirits. I'm energized but the momentum of it. I have so much hope and optimism surrounding it. I feel happy.

It's just that right this very second everything is done and it's too early to do what's left to do. I've started applying for jobs but it's too soon. People looking for secretaries want them now, not in 12 weeks. So I'll have to wait and meet with the people who will need a secretary 12 weeks from now. They don't even know they need me yet. They think their secretary will be sticking around. Little do they know he/she is pregnant and hasn't told them yet or maybe he/she doesn't even know yet. Maybe they are going to finally going to land a feature film and they'll be off like a thrift store prom dress and I'll be in like the best executive assistant in the entire universe.

I was looking through craigslist and I found this:

Ok, so I sent my resume but It's a job through and agency that I've already made an appointment to intreview with. It's too early for this job. They need someone right away for this one but they are telling me that they should have more jobs like this one when I get out there. Well I really, really hope that's true people!

So, I'm taking this time, this moment in limbo to put this out there:

Please dear Universe, dear God. Please let me get a job exactly like that. I'm perfect for it. It's my destiny. Please let me have it. Please, please, please. I'll be good. I promise. Please.
