Apparently, they only called to say that they,
“like” me, but not enough to actually “hire” me.
Whipee! I have gotten my fair share of phone calls,
that fall into this category.
She wanted to keep my application on file for future
reference-(so they reject me again? oh boy!) Sure is how I answered.
She also wanted to pass my application along,
to other agencies that they work with-
Sure, great, I said-
as I could feel my brain on meltdown,
the feeling of dread…nobody ever is going to hire me?
As much, as i try to remain focused and positive,
I keep getting massive and multiple rejections,
at each and every fork in the world…
At the end of our conversation, she could not wait
to tell me what an “awesome artist” I am.
Very talented. Not everybody is so lucky.
as an art therapist, i really disregarded, the compliment.
I felt literally-and still feel-that that is total bullshit.
I did not verbally say that to her,
instead I explained as an Art therapist, I believe that
Everybody has the power to make art- all it takes is practice.
No, no, no she assured me, “You have a Gift.”
Well yes, I do. I have the gift of never finding a damn job…
I’ve been looking over 18 months.
I am either OVER-qualified OR UNDER-qualify.
I can never get it right.
Getting so frustrated,
just wanna give up this dumb fight.
