Low profile

I read somewhere that you shouldn't blog when you don't really have anything interesting to say. Which is why I haven't blogged for a while.

I went for a job interview on Thursday and I have mixed feelings about how it went. The position was for a copy writer/blogger and when asked what I possibly knew about blogging and writing, I mentioned that I was a blogger and that I had done freelance writing before. Somehow they ended up making me feel like I was not pretty enough or smart enough to work for their company. It is strange though, I went in feeling so confident and ready, but left feeling worried and sad. I did my best anyway, but they said they will let me know if I got the job this upcoming week. They even mentioned that they had several other candidates to consider, along with myself.

I am still not doing much writing at the moment, though I have been catching up on my reading. Three of my family members have been home sick with the flu and I am trying desperately to avoid them and getting sick myself. I had the flu a few months back and apparently, I can get it all over again. I thought because I already had it this year I would be done.

All in all I am just keeping a low profile. Not doing much, just hanging around at home, trying not to drive my mother crazy.


  1. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and the job.

    Best of luck on not getting the flu (again). That would not be fun at all.

  2. Not pretty enough? That wasn't nice. Hope you get it anyway and rock at the job.

  3. Jai - Thank you.

    Alex - Thank you. You rock!

  4. Sorry this has happened to you. If you don't get this position a better one is coming your way.

  5. I hate that they made you feel sad and not qualified, Murees. Things like that should not happen. You are a fine,kind, sensitive, person and you are talented. If they don't hire you, they don't deserve you.

  6. Don't beat yourself up Muress..
    ups and downs are always there..
    read a lot.. that definitely helps.

    Try this..
    write down your worries and tear that page away.. works for me like a charm :)

  7. If you are at a loose end, but want to write something, don't forget to try the free writing exercise I mentioned on your previous blogpost!
    Writer In Transit

  8. Yeah, if you don't have something to say, forcing it isn't a good idea :)

    I'm sorry about your interview. But if that's how they treat someone they don't employ, you probably don't want to work there at all! Here's to praying that you get a few more nibbles on the job front soon!

  9. Hi Murees .. you'll be fine - the right job will come along .. trying doing some A-Zs for exercise purpose .. might turn into small books in due course ..

    Keep well away from Mama's feet!

    Good luck - Hilary

  10. We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives.. Some lessons are painful, some are painless.. but, all are priceless..Wish you all the best!

  11. Shelley - Thank you. I believe that too.

    Deanie - Thank you so much! Their loss.

    Jyoti - Thank you. I will definitely have to try that. Sounds like a good exercise.

    Michelle - Thank you, Michelle. I ended up writing things that did not make sense and which was not very good. But at least I wrote.

    Katie - Thank you. You are so right. I don't think I want to work for them anymore.

    Hilary - Thank you. I am trying to leave my mom in peace for now.

    Chirasree - Those are such wise words. Thank you.

  12. Fingers crossed that you get the best job for you!

    Enjoy your reading. :-)

  13. Wow, sounds like a harsh interview. Like Misha, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!
    Take care and I hope you can avoid that flu bug.

  14. Fingers crossed for the job. And good luck not getting sick :-)

  15. Misha - Thank you. You are always so kind.

    Julie - Thank you. I am getting the flu. I am at the stage where my whole body aches.

    Annalisa - Thank you. But I am getting sick (pout).
