For those of you on Dreamwidth, yes, these are the MOST APPROPRIATE ICONS.

I don't cook much! I don't really enjoy food prep but I have to eat, and I've been trying to eat healthier. As of..... Monday with a hiatus yesterday. THAT COUNTS RIGHT?

Anyway, I made things tonight and they were tasty so you get to see the recipes + photos.

Largish photos! )

So I had a job interview today. It would've been an okay job, but really production heavy and not creative at all.

So I guess it's fair that after I showed him my portfolio (that he was blown away by) he said, and I quote: "...This is really awkward. The guy who was here right before you just came off a production job so he's more of what we need right now. But you present yourself great and the interview was good! You'll have no trouble finding a job."

...Except for that reason you turned me down for, huh.

OH WELL. THERE WILL BE A BRIGHT TOMORROW. And I may hobnob with designers tonight. Depends on how I feel.

Okay, a few people have been asking, re: my meeting today.

A little background for those just tuning in: I got a call on Friday from a creative staffing firm (after I had applied for a job) sounding very excited about my work! And wanting to try to place me right away! So I had an informational today with him. In bullet points!

-He loooooves my work
-He does not normally offer to place junior/entry level positions, so I'm special.
-He made a point to stress that I was one of maybe ten people he calls to interview, out of the 100+ who apply each week.
-He was really impressed with my presentation.


-The place that has an immediate opening doesn't want me as I have no experience.
-However, they didn't slam the door.
-So he is going to try to get me in with at least an informational, if not a lower hourly rate than he normally would push. 10% DISCOUNT ON THE NEWLY GRADUATED. That's. Honestly what it is.

But I'm energized. Even if it doesn't happen immediately, he seemed very intent in making this work. I have a person to network with! I have someone representing me in the field! And he's a nice guy!

Overall I feel accomplished. And damn I looked nice.
