So Tuesday and Wednesday were two good days. And here's why.

Tuesday I took this online assessment that was to qualify you to work at home as a customer sales rep. It was very cool and very well done. And they had these fake customer phone calls and you had to try to answer them. You had to prove how tech savvy you were by finding the right links and tabs to answer their question, and you had to choose answers and it was really fun to see their reactions. If you picked the wrong answer, they'd get angry. If you picked the right one, they'd calm down. And I got a really good sense of what it would be like to work from home like that and it was very cool. So while I was dreaming about that....

I got an mail from an advertising agency in Lancaster (Dean Design) requesting an interview!!! I was so excited to hear back from them cause I had given up. So that was a little more exciting than the phone thing, but I was still excited about them, as I am a very impressionable distractable person. So I was thinking, hmmmm, these are two very exciting opportunities. But of course one is much smart and more exciting and more creative than the other. So I think if I shall have to pick between the two of them, I shall know which one to choose.

The next day, in keeping with my stop-looking-for-a-job-but-start-networking plan, I went to my first Mechanicsburg Business Women's Luncheon. And to my surprise, I LOVED it. I met one cool chic named Rachel Strella, and she might have some interesting connections for me to start my new business. And I also met the editor of Harrisburg Mag.

And in the evening I went to a quarter auction - which I've never done before. And it turned out to be a weird sort of Bingo, which I've also never done before. And I spent three whole dollars of quarters (haha, bit of sarcasm there) throwing quarters into a cup and holding up my paddle but of course my number was never called so I didn't win the Avon mani-pedi deluxe kit (that's what I was praying I would win) and I didn't win the pink necklace or the tea basket or the bronzer and brush from Skincare Makeup or the Perfectly Nude Eyeshadow Collection from the same company. That's a lot of quarters (not really). And I didn't have anything to donate or display either, but it was fun and we shall see if I go again. Hmmm....we shall see.

So what is on my mind this morning?.....hmm....I'd love to redo tres chic's website. That's what I'm thinking.
