An Interview

Wearing a dress out in public- A first

Planning out my outfit a week in advance and laying it out the night before- A definite first

Crying about my new, white, one inch heel shoes hurting me - Well I do it with most shoes other than my sneakers

Not being able to walk in my shoes- ...too many times to count

Feeling so femininely professional- A very, very WE ird feeling....so VERY WE ird

Having my day start out bad- Oh so common

Water bottle spilling all over my very important, and much needed papers, and my laptop, and books- I guess it happens, but damage to this extreme is a first.

Standing around in the bathroom covering everything with napkins- Little girl's mom staring at me, and then little girl coming out from bathroom stall to stare at me.

Tripping every 20 steps because of my shoes- Been there, done that

Having to use the stairs to walk up six flight of stairs in annoying shoes- Oh so annoying- Well maybe the elevator for my parking structure is working and I won't have to walk up 9 flight of stairs.

Having people tell me I look pretty- So unnerving. I might actually start throwing my shoes at them.

Having people tell me over and over again- Breathe, don't talk fast, and don't say unnecessary things- Priceless

There are some things that life throws at you, and then there are some things that life ONLY throws at YOU.

As salaamu alaikum,
Your blog's feed right now has the noreply@blogger problem (it shows that instead of author's name). I have described in here how to fix this:

Assalaam Alaikum,

Wow so much at once habibty. A dress, heels, the lap-top. I always shake in interviews, it's just natural. I cn't imagine walking to one in heels...

But, it sounds like you did very well. I hope that you get a quick and good answer about it.

Love you and praying it turns out the way you want it to.

These are the posts where I long for a picture. :-)

Swore off heals long ago... I look just as beautiful in cute flats.

Let us know how it went.

the girl in stiletto said...

im sure they meant it when they say you look pretty :) if i ever see you and i say the same thing, please dont throw your one-inch heels at me because, i'm good at dodging and i have three-inch stilettos. bwah ha ha. but you see, i'm so nice that i wont throw my stilettos at you :P

my point being, there are times when all you can do is just to embrace the compliments. those compliments dont come too often :)

Dear Girl in Stiletto,
I do not know how to take compliments....care to teach me?

FMB, Yours truly- i think i will be doing a follow up post...oh it will be a fun follow up post..

Faith in Writing said...

Ohhhhh. I hate wearing things I'm not used to either. A tip though: heels are easier to run in! Ha ha. I found that when I used to wear them out at night (with jeans, no dresses here really,only over jeans sometimes). I'm a flat shoes and thongs (flip flop) kinda girl. Hope your interview went ok! And my baby girl spilled coke on my lap top today. I hate that feeling, of having something potentially damaged by water... you can never go back :(
