I am a member of an online netwroking site. I was spending some time following links from friend to frind today when I noticed something disturbing. There are 3 people that come up very frequently on my links (or in other words they are friends of my friends), and I have never met them. I read their profiles, and found where we have all sorts of things in common. But I don't know these people! I have never seen them, heard of them, etc. I feel like they must live in some sort of alternate universe. What else could possibly explain all of our connections and yet anonymity to each other at the same time?
Earlier this week I hd 2 job interviews, plus a phone interview. Now, NOTHING. Its been 3 days of silence. I have applied to over 50 jobs, primarily in the DC area, in the past week. You would think I would get more than just 3 responses from 50 applications! I blame the internet. All these search engines have made it so easy to apply for jobs that now instead of only 20 people mailing in resumes, typing up cover letters, etc., now there are 200 people all just clicking "apply now." I'm about 5 minutes away from selling off all of my personal belongings and moving to Africa. I hear its much cheaper there, and no one cares if you don't have a job!
Ever been so disappointed in a product you had to Instagram it? I really was looking forward to this cute red and white striped dress from @cozibearboutique. The reviews said it ran small, so I ordered a size up. The top picture is supposedly a dress in the same size. The lower dress is a size smaller. And yet.... This dress is running about 2 sizes small. And for some reason, mostly my serious disappointment because I really did want it to work out, I'm extra annoyed with it. I got it on a great deal from @veryjane. I've bought some great dresses from them, and some huge disappointments. Jane isn't too blame, since they're just a curated aggregate site (they don't make it- they sell other people's stuff at a great deal price). But it's starting to feel like they sell a lot of "boutique" clothing that isn't anything more than cheap clothes purchased from India or China, by someone selling. It out of their garage here. Because the sellers are unproven, the products can be very unreliable and disappointing. It may be time to just give up on Jane after this many let downs. 😥
