The turning of the tide

I have a complimentary photo shoot on Tue. I re-scheduled from tomorrow because I want to borrow a reflector from a friend of mine and play around with it until I get better at using it. I may even buy one for myself and just sign up to eat sardines and veggies for the rest of the month. Hmnn- that may not be such a bad idea. I find I spend too much money on food monthly anyway. I need to balance my budget and make way for delights other than gastronomic.

But there is good news. I have been getting callbacks- at least in the rough. Someone who saw me MC at the boat party calls me about MCing a sports competition; my resume is finally being picked up by Middle Eastern recruiters; a client promises to send out an email to pass on the word about my photography.

None of these things has been definitive, but I am grateful to even be considered at this point. My confidence was waining when I got so many "Nos" but even worse than hearing "No, you suck" is hearing nothing at all. Multiply those variables times the nearly 200 applications sent out. I even got turned down for entry level marketing jobs and ignored for jobs as a receptionist. So right now, I am just delighted that people are even giving me some consideration.

I knew in my spirit that March would see me earning an income. I even wrote it down on our finance spreadsheet. Yes. I actually make spreadsheets for personal finances. That is how I manage to keep on top of things. Thank heavens the wind is now blowing in my favour.
