Job Hunting

Well, obviously I'm not going to become rich selling on Etsy and eBay any time soon, so now I'm looking for a job.  Oh yeah, my financial aid ran out, too.  Since my last disastrous job as a "cocktail waitress," I'm terrified of getting a real job where I have to dress nice and show up on time.  And I might even have to work in the morning--ugh!  I'm terrible at sales, so I figured that some kind of clerical job would be best for me. 

Searching for jobs is frustrating.  I browse Craigslist and Monster, sending my resume to all kinds of places, but I haven't heard anything yet.  I guess it just takes time...  My boyfriend is supporting me right now, which makes me feel kinda lame since I was raised with the idea that women are supposed to be independent.

Goal-achieving has been bad, bad, bad.  I haven't sold anything in weeks, and I'm starting to think my stuff is really lame.  Worse, I can't buy new materials until I sell stuff because I just don't have the money.  I keep hoping that something of mine will end up on Regretsy for being so ridiculous--I don't care if they laugh at my stuff because it sells!  And it's actually pretty funny...

I'm Lazy

I haven't been sewing that much, haven't been listing things on Etsy or eBay...bad bad!  I've been kinda busy with school, but I've also been lazy!  Procrastinating!  So I made a plan a couple weeks ago for the month of May.  I outlined some goals for the entire month, and then broke them up into mini goals for each week.

May Goals:
-Make $200 on Etsy and eBay
-Create 5 garments
-List 10 items
-Write 1 blog per week
-Update Facebook fan page each week
-Make graph of profits
-Distribute 50 business cards

Things I've Accomplished So Far:

So I'm not doing good so far.  It's finals week at school, so that equals more procrastination related to studying.  Ugh, I get so frustrated with myself sometimes!  I think I don't have very much faith in myself...

New Camera!

Hooray, I finally have a good camera to take my pictures with.  My boyf traded an Xbox he fixed for it.  We tried it out at the Murder City Devils' show on April 29. 

 I love my new shoes!
