As some of you may know, I have been going through some pretty intensive training for my new job these last 4 weeks. My employment actually depended on passing training successfully so I’ve been really stressed out lately thinking that I might be unemployed again. Well, today I finally got the news that I have passed my training and will be starting my job in the coming week. More than 50% of the people that started with me in training either dropped out or were let go so I’m still shocked that I’ve made it through. I know that I was down on my job a couple of weeks ago because it seemed so difficult to get the hang of everything, but I have started to feel a little more confident in my abilities. I just wish I could get to a point where the sound of the phone ringing at my desk won’t make me want to shit my pants. (Ok, that’s disgusting but I know some of you know what I’m talking about!)
Besides being happy about having landed this job AND passing the training, I am also really excited about reaching some milestones–namely 1,000 likes on my Facebook page. I am also very close to reaching 1,000 Twitter followers and my blog isn’t that far behind. I just want to thank all of you and my favorite way to give back is to give you pretty polishes! I decided to pick up an extra 6 bottles from the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection to give away to one lucky reader.
I know I’ve said it before, but I want to remind everyone to confirm your subscription to my blog via email in order to be eligible for this and all my giveaways. I was so bummed out when I was trying to pick a winner for my Euro Centrale Minis giveaway, and so many people who entered were NOT showing up as subscribers so I had to disregard their entries and move on. The only mandatory entry is to be a blog email subscriber, and all other activities are optional. As always, this giveaway is open worldwide but PLEASE make sure that you know what the customs restrictions are in your country before entering.
I am on an unofficial swatching break right now since I nubbed my nails last week AND my hands are still recovering from the unfortunate chemical damage that I inflicted on myself during my last cleaning binge. I have also been super stressed because of work so I’ve been lagging on swatching, catching up on my favorite blogs and even more shameful: responding to comments on my own blog. Let me just say that even if I haven’t responded YET, I do read every single comment. I love to hear what you all have to say so I feel like such a turd for not responding in a more timely manner.
I currently have a crazy backlog of swatching which includes:
China Glaze Avant Garden Collection
Nubar Sweet Escape Collection
OPI Oz Collection
Venique Goes To Hollywood Collection
Jindie Nails lovelies
Oy vey! When am I going to get all of this done?I think that I am going to have a very interesting weekend. Now that I will have my permanent schedule at work, I think I will be able to schedule things better. I also want to thank all of you who sent me incredibly encouraging emails and private messages on Facebook when I was struggling with work. It meant so much to me and it helped me stay positive despite feeling overwhelmed.
I am very fortunate to have so many things to celebrate right now! Thank you for your continued support.
