Sunday Night

I've been reading over my past blog entries and they haven't been very cheerful. There have been some challenging times, but at the same time I've been learning a lot. Things are getting better. Every day is a new day and all that jazz.

It's Sunday night and I've been getting ready for the week. Actually I have a pretty busy week. I have a job interview tomorrow with the recruitment agency called Zebra People. That will hopefully be promising. I heard about them through a woman I met last year. My project management instructor Julie Dirksen was kind enough to put me in contact with one of her friends that she knew in London. I just ran across the business card that she gave me with some names of recruitment agencies and she had recommended Zebra People.

I am looking forward to that. I've decided to move my focus to finding a job doing what I was doing back at Popular Front and forget about advertising for the time being. All my experience lies within user experience so I guess it would make sense to look for a job in that field. I really enjoyed working at Popular Front, I wonder if I will be able to find a place like it in London.

The interview is at 3 p.m. and then later that night there is a knitting group that I am going to go to over in Notting Hill. I am also looking forward to that. Meeting some nice cool girls and having a pint while we knit. Hopefully it will be cool. My knitting is coming along. That's good.

Tuesday I am going to a day long workshop event hosted by Blue Skies. In addition to the workshops they are doing a creative showcase of 2008. Perhaps I will meet some people there, do a bit of networking. I am interested in seeing what kind of crowd it's going to draw.

Wednesday I am meeting with a business director at Lowe International for a bit of a chat. That meeting is courtesy of William Humphrey. I've mentioned him before, very helpful. I am really looking forward to meeting some professional women in London and hearing about their experiences.

Thursday I meeting for coffee with a woman who works in the publishing industry. This was arranged through Tracy Downing's call FB call for help. One of her friends said they had a contact in London and I am going to meet her. Looking forward to that as well. I am very curious about the publishing industry.

Good things are happening. I am feeling very lucky to have had the help of good friends and colleagues in Minnesota. I am so thankful for the support and kindness that people have shown. I am so determined to get a job!

Here's to a good week and more positive blog posts.
