Pieces of eight

Hi all,
I hope your week is going well.  I had the second part of the interview today and unfortunately didn't get the job.  I suffer badly from nerves and they definitely got the better of me, although I know the job inside out and back to front.  It now means that I am re-evaluating things and what to do with my life as I need to do something about interview nerves, or do something that doesn't need an interview.  I am quite upset at the moment as it's a school that I have done a lot of supply in and they still want me to supply (which I'm not going to do).  All of this means my mojo has disappeared so I am sorry if there isn't an awful lot on here at times.
Sorry for the moan, but now onto other things.  Over at Incy Wincy, we would like you to make a pocket card.  I have used a fab pirate image by Pink Gem and the pocket on the inside should hold gold coins, but I forgot to buy some.  (Silly me).
See you later.

Sorry you didn't get the job Nikki,I think interview nerves get to so many of us, rather like exams.

Great pirate inspired card.

Oh honey, I'm really sorry to hear about the job. Hunting them is so nerve racking - I completely sympathise. But you gotta believe in yourself - you KNOW you can do the job. And turn it around - they would be lucky to have you! There are many reasons why people don't get jobs - you got to the second interview which means you are not rubbish! I hope you can keep your spirits up. At least you got some interview practice in and hopefully it won't feel so daunting next time. I have everything crossed for you.

Big hugs

Hugs to you Nikki! I know how to feel for sure! I'm in a high unemployment area and trying to get anyone to give you even a basic job is hard when you have anxiety and social phobia etc like I have.

Sounds like you are better off though, and I think everything happens for a reason and right positive is out there for you!!!

Love the pirate gal and her dubloons!!!
