• I applied for one position, but was offered another…

    I had quit my job and decided to go to graduate school. It was hard because Chief was away for a rotation in Alaska and I was by myself. Ironically, that rotation fell over our first wedding anniversary. Between classes one day, I saw a sign for a hiring event by UPS. They were looking for loader/unloaders. I met the minimum requirements–something like must be able to lift 50 (60?) lbs by yourself and 120 lbs with a partner. Hell yes I could do that. I’m actually very strong. And Stubborn. And other things… I show up to the hiring date wearing a black pair of trousers and a white…

    Interview at Celtic Lady’s Reviews

    On August 20th, I was “interviewed” on The Celtic Lady’s Reviews. I’ve included her questions and my responses below. I struggled with these because there isn’t a “one size fits all” answer to them, but there you have it. I wasn’t very good at multiple choice questions in school, either. What do you find most challenging about the writing process, and how do you deal with it? Negative self-talk coupled with old stories is usually my biggie. I had to confront and manage these stories, or I’d get stuck and wouldn’t make progress. Writing really poked at those tender places, and I wasn’t writing anything personal or even “close to…
