If you’re my age or older you may have wondered already how exactly do I give off the allure of a real person and not a cartoon character? Clearly, I don’t mind being ridiculous but in order to eat I need a job so I’ve been trying my best to tone down but still keep my own true self, originality and creativity in tact (which clearly translates in my clothing) and is a very positive trait in job searches to me. Seeing as I’m super lucky to live in a town that loves colours and quirk I try to balance my madness with Real Life Person acceptability. It’s a hard line and I don’t think I succeed very much but here’s to nothing anyway everyday.
Though my awkwardness subsides as soon as the realization of my amazingness dawns on me in an interview room (my vanity is a blessing), at first, especially in my earliest interviews I felt so awkward I could hardly move and just laugh at my ridiculous lack of real life personality and qualifications. I tried to pose as stifled as I’ve often felt here. Strangely, it doesn’t look very different of other outfit photos? Hey, that’s just sad. I’m nodding my head in my own disapproval and patting my back for emotional support. One day I’ll be a person.
