Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Why hello there you beautiful people. My Weekly Vlog where I talked about this new blog went live last night and a load of you came over here to take a look. THANK YOU!!! I cannot thank you all enough for watching my videos, commenting and subscribing. It means so much to me that you are interested in little old me haha. I am loving vlogging my day to day life at the moment. So yes thank you for coming over to here to say hello too. I plan to write a load of Disney blogs. Whether it’s reviews, updates or new trip announcements – everything!

While typing this, I am sitting staring at my phone waiting for an important phone call. It’s the phone call I’ve been waiting for now for over two whole weeks. It was 2 weeks ago that I went for an interview, actually 15 days ago and I still haven’t heard the result. I received an email yesterday saying they are going to call today with an update. So it looks like today is going to be spent sitting, waiting and wishing (cue Jack Johnson). I’m nervous to hear but it’s been so long now I just want to know!! If it’s good then perfect, if it’s bad then at least I can move on and carry on with the job hunt.

So many thoughts are going through my head though, why am I not hearing anything? At least that means it’s not an immediate no…but it’s not an immediate yes either. Maybe they are waiting to hear from others or maybe there’s another interview? Maybe the person in charge of this is off or maybe they liked me but not for the original role or original place? So so sooo many questions which will all be put at rest as soon as I receive this one little phone call. By the end of today, I will know the outcome. That’s scary!

Job-hunting is a very long process, it takes time. I applied for a job at a university yesterday. It took literally all day. There were 17 questions each wanting 200-500 word answers. It’s further education so of course it requires more than just chucking a CV their way but still…very time-consuming. Let’s just hope something comes from this and is worth all the effort.

Although I have done so many exciting things, travelling the world with jobs – my CV is a little flaky as I have been here, there and everywhere. I’ve been a bit from job to job but I am now looking for a job where I’ll be in it for life. In the past I’ve always just thought “oh this job will do until my next Disney adventure”. I can’t be like that this time, we’re looking to settle down and I can’t have a job that ‘will do’ I want to enjoy it. I know a job is a job and you’re not ‘meant’ to enjoy it. But what’s the point in waking up in the morning and dreading going to work? Somewhere you will be spending most of your life. I want to wake up and look forward to what the day holds. So finding that perfect job who also accepts you is a tough one. Wish me luck.

  1. awww love I am anxious for you over here….I hope it’s the news you want to hear. You are right…job hunting is the worst. It’s so time consuming and seems to be a neverending repetitive tedious process….although you have done bits of jobs here and there, you have to remember the positions were temporary and you did each one through to the end. They will definitely take that into consideration and not penalize you for it…btw, what is a CV? Is it like a resume? Let us know how the phone call went…Fingers crossed!!!

  2. Claire – I read both of your blog posts. How fun to have this avenue to share your thoughts and heart.

    I know searching for a job is so time consuming and is just emotionally draining. I know the right one will come along for you. Be encouraged a job does not have to be “just a job”. I hope you find one you truly love and look forward to waking up for each day. One that is fulfilling for you. I am sure by now you have received the phone call for the job you have been waiting to hear from. No matter the outcome – know there is a plan for you and the perfect job is out there for you.

    I will look forward to more blogs and your weekly vlogs. Have a wonderful evening Claire. Send happy thoughts and pixie dust your way from Texas.

  3. I feel the same way about a job, Claire. I’m currently at a job that I absolutely LOVE but I will soon have to look for a full-time position in the near future and I want to love it as much as this one. It’s nerve-racking just thinking about having to find it! I hope you find that perfect job!
