View Full Version : A funny thing happened a couple of days ago....

Before I begin, let me bring something into the light: Until a couple of days ago, I was what you call... a professional unemployed. Meaning: I work very hard to find a job, but no one would hire me.

A couple of days ago, I was up in Boca Raton. Specifically, FAU. It was business as usual (see, I'm a volunteer at the campus's TV Station. I supposed to be an actual employee, but that's another story).

It turns out the manager left for Christmas, but a friend of mine was there. So chatted with her, then decided to go check my college e-mail. I had one e-mail saying I was hired by the campus's bookstore, a place I applied for a month or so ago (so when I got no answer, I thought that was a lost cause). That e-mail was sent a couple of days ago. However, due to the birth of my neice, I didn't check it until a couple of days ago, the same day I was supposed to come in. Luckily, I was dressed appropiately and I came in, got the paperwork done, and started working the next day.

Talk about a Christmas gift: My first job, ever.
