Hot chicken sandwiches, the fair weathered friends of food

So when it comes to friendships, I tend to be a masochist, and am usually the one making all the effort some of the time. With these people I usually throw my hands up in ire or try to forget about them. To me these people are like hot chicken sandwiches from chick fil-a taste good at first and clear your sinuses but are kicking your ass with their heat tell you go to bed.

The friends that are there for you and try to main contact these are the reliable foods that you can always depend on such as oatmeal, sandwiches, angry orchard cider, etc. You know they will be there if you ever need to contact them.

The reason for this food related ramble is because I tried to make contact with a hot chicken sandwich only to be an ignored after thought once again. I know as an adult friends of people you try to make friends with come and go, but this is just made harder with self isolation and covid since last March.

Honestly, making friends as an adult is hard enough for a socially awkward introvert as me, throw in covid where more people are depressed and lonely than ever and the odds of taking the risk to chat with someone on this trying time goes down.

Has anyone else been dealing with this sort of trying to make friends or maintain them during covid?

Interview gone bad…

I was in a pretty decent mood today when I woke up since I had an interview to go to today, yeah a glimmer of hope. Well, I was wrong I prepped for the interview looked up questions on glassdoor.com, did research about the company, what I could find anyway. I was confident, calm, and relaxed and planned to wow the interviewer when I got asked a couple questions that made me want to bury my head in the sand. My first one was why I got fired from a position in which the customers decided your fate whether you did a good job or helped them in the first place. Also my interviewer then proceeded to ask why I was not pursuing enough educational positions since I had my masters. This was what I was told after I asked if she had concerns about me, and other than this interview only one employer I have interviewed has said this out of twelve or thirteen.

When will people learn that just because you have said skills to teach does not mean anyone will hire you to do so unless you have some teaching experience or a composition instructor who loves you.  Also, getting into teaching to me is like trying to get into the acting business, the competition is fierce. It is vicious cycle on top of which I am not sure what sort of career I want to pursue at this point in time.

I have been volunteering but when your interviewer tells you that you are not being “aggressive” enough pursuing your “career” goals.  I was so mad I didn’t even inquire to this person about calling back about my application status in the future, my gut feeling is that I am not hired, and if this person had these concerns I should have not been interviewed in the first place. I might apply to this same company again with the hope that I get someone well that gets me.It was like a bad date, it was so bad I cried afterward hours later and had copious amounts of ice cream of ease the pain while not emotionally healthy, didn’t hurt.  As soon as I see a nutritionist I am sure said bad ice cream behavior will have to stop so I can make my goal weight my next summer or fall.  So to all those looking for work have you ever had an interview go from good to bad over a couple questions, and how did you deal or salvage things if they were going down hill?  Also, even those who have jobs I am all for hearing your interview horror stories too.
