I was floating somewhere between sleep and consciousness, my mind ready to wake but my body willing it to drift back to sleep. I was almost succeeding at this when I heard the alert tone on my phone, it wasn't a text, it wasn't a ping, it wasn't whatsApp. If it was any of these I would have ignored it. No, it was my email alert, not just any email, the email on my CV. Immediately I jumped off the bed, every vestige of sleep taking flight. Immediately I grabbed my phone and saw at the head of the screen, the mail was the one I'd been waiting for, the one I was beginning to think wouldn't come but refused to lose hope just yet.
Frantically I opened the email, my heart racing like I'd just pumped some coke into my veins, I was ready to scream in excitement when the words SORRY caught my eyes. Yes, that one word said it all and immediately everything within and around me was deflated; the joy, the bubbles, the hope. Yes; Sorry you are not what we're looking for right now, but we would bear you in mind would we ever have need for your services.
I stared at the screen and the first thought I had was it's 7am on a Sunday morning, who sends someone this kind of mail at 7am on a Sunday morning?
Madam, no one does that!
At the start of the day one needs every bit of inspiration and encouragement, a positive mind and a hopeful spirit.
Oh well, in any case I must say Thank You, most people don't bother to take the time to respond, and even when they do, they send some generic rejection letter. You didn't, you took the time to write specifically to me. For this I'm grateful.
Ok, now that that's out of the way... How have you all been? I don't mean to kill your blues with my reggae, and I promised to not share any less than great news with you guys because;
1. Y'all can like to pity somebody and I really don't want that.
2. I've not had any great news to share in a while and that brings me to 1 again, I get tired of hearing "Awww, it will be well, God is in control..."
3. Some people actually derive great pleasure from hearing your bad news, why give them that pleasure?
Yeah, but that said; I'm starting a new job tomorrow (So YAYYY!). I work from from 3-9pm, leaving me to pursue (my) other businesses in the earlier hours of the day. My only reservation is that it's 7 days a week, and I've never worked 7 days a week but it's something I really want to do and I've decided to try it out.
So that's it about me right now. What is going on with you? Please tell me guys, I really really want to know. We haven't really talked of late and I hate not knowing what's happening in your lives.
