What a massive week... And what a massive week AHEAD!
Full of opportunity and a little disappointment... After my awesome experience as a tv extra on Reef Doctors, I had a job trial for casual Administration work with a Childrens Photography company, which went amazingly - After all, Life is all about the Hustle lol. Although it's not the most exciting job in the world at the moment, it is flexible and a great hourly rate which I would be happy with. After my trial, they asked me to start on Monday... I had one more interview I wanted to attend though, with the Princess Polly online store - The interview went well, and I was so confident that I had the job... they would let me know the next day.
So Friday was my mums wedding day, we made the trip to Hervey Bay the night before and then I impatiently waited to hear from Princess Polly Unfortunately for me, they had told me I had come a very close second to another candidate and didn't get the job... I was pretty disappointed... I had my heart set on that job and felt like I was settling by having to take the other position.
Not even half an hour later, I get a voicemail from a Sydney number on my phone. When I listen to the message, it's the beautiful Manisha from Zoo Weekly mag asking me to call her back about a job for this Thursday! I couldn't believe my luck! I called her back straight away, I didn't care about looking too keen, I was just SO excited!
She explained it was a feature shoot based around Share-house situations and living with roommates, but a girls take on the male type of share-houses... drinking out of the milk carton, dirty dishes, etc. Not trashy lingerie, but bonds-type shoot in a bachelor setting house in Coogee; Hair, Makeup, Styling, Flights included and the days full payment for 9-5.30pm working with another model.... AWESOME!
All I could think was, if I had been offered the job with Princess Polly full-time then there was no way that I would have been able to attend this shoot with Zoo on Thursday - But now that I have the casual job then I get to do BOTH... When I called them to say I could start the job on Monday, my recruitment officer told me they would like to meet with me to offer some full-time positions to me which were coming up in the next couple weeks. I couldn't believe it! I ended up getting exactly what I wanted plus MORE
Seriously, everything does seem to happen for a reason... And when one door closes, God opens a window
The wedding was amazing, and I got to spend a couple special days with my immediate and extended family... I've never seen my mum so happy. I got the best news ever and topped it off with an amazing weekend.
With Success comes Failure left behind... We cannot learn to succeed without failing at one point or another.
God is Amazing... Never Regret, and always have Faith xox
