Erm well, you should just tell me what to do lol.
But this past Valentine’s Day was a strange strange strange Valentine’s Day. I used to think my worst Valentine’s Day was that very awkward college one with “Prince Player”.
But last week 🤦🏻♀️ I was in for a surprise. The day started out pretty good. I had two interviews the next day so I was preparing for them all day. Towards the end of the day, I log onto social media. Couples have posted cute pics of them with their significant others and it’s really lovely to see. But then I see a picture “Scientist” has posted with another girl!!! Kissing!! Now this would be fine, if he was not just messaging me this past Sunday and every other day about how much he misses me and can’t wait to be with me again 😦 So my gut was right, he has been seeing someone else this whole time.
Wow, I thought “Scientist” really was the one for me. Why…did this happen.
Then, I went to bake (you guys know I love baking and holidays are a good excuse to bake!)
My plan was to make a heart shaped cake. And it worked, but when it came down to it- the cake cracked! I text my friend a pic and say “Oh my god my heart broke on Valentine’s Day”.
*yes friends I still got a sense of humor when things go bad
“It’s ok! It’s just a tiny piece that’s broken Shaz, you can fix it!” my friend responds.
“Okay but what about my actual heart?” I respond back considering she also knew about the situation that happened earlier in the day. *yes I went there!
She bursts out laughing. “Too good Shaz. Too good” she responds.
I laugh too and I am able to fix it just fine and it is a very beautiful heart shaped cake. My family and I eat it and everyone loves it.
The next morning I wake up early for my interviews to make myself coffee, and see my cake. It was neatly covered with saran wrap the night before as I wanted to save the left overs but didn’t want to ruin the heart shape. When I remove the saran wrap I see things running… My eyes widen….ANTS!!!!! ANTS TOOK OVER MY HEART CAKE!!!
I quickly dispose of the cake and Clorox the heck out of the plate it was sitting in. Just my luck really.
As if things really really can’t get worse. I begin my first interview, and I legit have- 15 interviewers!!!!! Not just that…
“We see you have listed Spanish as one of your skills. So we have prepared some questions for you in Spanish” the hiring manager says.
Oh goody. The last time I spoke Spanish was when I graduated with accelerated credits but that was in high school!
But I answer the questions. And somehow, my Spanish comes out fluently and naturally and they said I did good.
But still. It is my 5th month without a job, and let’s see here, the third guy that broke my heart in the past year. I feel I am close to the finish line, but I can’t see it and I’m worried 😔
God help me. I hope all of you had a lovely Valentine’s Day! I promise I will write you your letters once things settle!
