Jessie T. Wolf
OMG! I have my first interview tomorrow at noon!!
It's a manager position at a large pet store - not as glamorous as working in the film biz, but honestly I would feel better about working at a place where I can really enjoy being around animal-related stuff and making a bit less, than working at a high-stress studio coordinator job making more money but possibly not being as happy.
I am still keeping my eye out for any special effects makeup jobs that may be out there, since I just bought a ton of new makeup supplies, and I plan on diving back into that as soon as I can. Once my makeup stuff arrives, I will need guinea pigs to practice on, so I can get some decent photos taken and actually put together some kind of portfolio. So, if you want to be bruised, scratched, burned, scarred, or pumped full of bullet holes, come and see me. ;)
In the meantime though, until I can get into something I *really* want to get into, (ie. special effects makeup, or professional dog obedience training) I will take whatever decent pet-industry job that I can at the moment, especially if it's going to pay me $14-$16 an hour.
I hope I can be impressive and strong enough to get a store manager position. O__o OMG.
On a trippy note, these new meds seriously throw me for a loop at times! All this adrenaline's got me all shaky and shit. I feel like a Chihuahua. *shhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaake!*
I called the Dr's office back today, and there were no abnormal results from my chest X-ray, which is nice. I still have an appointment at the hospital on August 5th, for another test. I'm torn between wanting them to find something wrong so that they can tell me how to fix it, and them saying there's nothing physically wrong that they can see and not knowing how to make this cough go away. It is so exhausting at times... it just takes the energy right out of me. -___- Maybe it's just stress... but if that's the case, it amazes me that stress can make a cough last for 9 months.
Job will be good. Once I get a routine back in my life, that will make me feel a WHOLE lot better!! X-D
Current Mood: hopeful
I remember the black eyes

You were my first guinea pig. ;) *hugs*
By the way, I will most likely be in Toronto for a week in December. I need to get the stuff in my storage locker shipped to Vancouver, and while I'm in the area I want to get together with my friends (which means you, too!) before I visit Tim's family in Michigan for Christmas.
Good luck with the interview Jess'!! :D

Thank you!! ^^
I make a lot less money than my friends, even working two jobs to their one, but I have the envy of several of them for one of my jobs working at a "non-traditional" kennel. Its run out of a lady's house on twenty acres, including a good 10 or so that are forest with trails, probably another 5 that are fenced, grassy fields of various sizes, and the kennel itself has absolutely no concrete floors ... its all wood flooring, each has a soft place to lay ranging from large cushions in the smallest rooms to full couches in the more premium rooms, and the four most premium rooms sport dog doors that are almost always unlocked. Absolutely no visitors are allowed for three hours during the afternoon, during which the dogs are napped, and on sunny days they're allowed to nap out in the grassy fields (which each have open-air tents they can snooze in the shade).
I really enjoy working there, I love working around dogs ... I don't have a particularly glorious job, I'm mostly a groundskeeper mowing and picking up poo, but I still love it, and occasionally if I'm a good doggy, I get to take dogs out on hikes in the woods or play fetch in the large fields. :P
Sadly its not a job that pays the bills, which is why I have my other part-time job, but its a job I look forward to going to every day.

You mean paws. :P
The place I work isn't quite that fancy, but its very spacious, comfy, well-kept and un-overcrowded (in a pinch, over a holiday, the most number of dogs kept where I work is 35, usually its 10 or less, and during slow times, my boss fosters rescues).
Its nice to have a job I like going to, that's for sure.
...and if you love what your doing you will never work a day in your life! :)
Cant remember who said that but its so true.
I wish you the best of luck on your interview :) *hugs*
Always aim for your dreams and what makes you happy. That is what counts in the end :3
And Jessie.. USE ME AS YOUR GUINEA PIG PLZ *gives puppy dog eyes* :3
I always wanted to get special effects makeup done one me ^ ^

Thanks, hon. ^^
Sure thing! You can be my guinea pig black wolfy. :]~ I'll let you know when my makeup kits arrive.
*licks your nose*
Another person interested in special effects make up! Oh that's one of my dream jobs. When i get bored i take out my special effects kit and play away! I had a low budge for Halloween, but it worked well here http://wolfenashes.deviantart.com/art/Time-for-Hugs-68781666
i love zombies! but with all this stupid CG shtuff i really hope basic special FX doesn't go out of style. I'm in Kansas, so it's kind of hard to go to a college specializing in it. Though they have a great one in LA ofcourse.
Anyhoot, i hope your interview goes awesomely as well as your future doctor appointment :)

Both interviews went pretty well, actually - it's just now playing the waiting game, and see who will actually call me back for a second interview or hire me. O__o
aww... you live too far away. -_-
I like special effects and makeup stuff. and prop building... and set building... and videography...
Did I mention my major in school is for "New Media" and "studio art"?
Hope you get/got the job!
