YET ANOTHER CHAPTER IN MY JOB SEARCH...Ooh... I mentioned a couple of days ago that I submitted my CV to the Chapters bookstore in Kanata.
They called me in for an interview on Thursday!
The downside is that, unlike the interview I had at the South Keys Chapters in August, it's going to be a group interview, kind of like a job interview version of The Dating Game, and I've never done one of those before, so I'll be even more anxious than usual. My brother told me to wear a tie, but I don't know if I have a decent tie, and, I have the nice dress shirt I bought late last winter from Mark's Work Wearhouse, and it's good for interviews, but I'm not sure if it's really a "tie" shirt.
I do hope I get this job, though. Of all the choices available for someone with my limited qualifications, Chapters seems to be the most pleasant place for someone like me to work.
I've been in a scanning mood the past couple of days, so I started another album in my Fotopic gallery: an album of pictures which I took in Paris on Bastille Day weekend in July 1997. They're not the same quality as, say, the pics I took in London in 2000; my trip to England (from where Nick and I took a weekend trip to Paris) in the summer of 1997 was the first time I had really "travelled" anywhere as an adult, and I was just beginning to get my bearings as a photographer. But some of them are okay; a lot of them, I took around twilight, so you get interesting lighting effects like in the picture of the Champs d'Elysee at near dusk above, where everything kind of looks silver and blue.
I could have sworn I wrote about our somewhat mishap-filled Paris adventure elsewhere in this blog, but I don't seem to have done so. I might, at some point in the future, write out a couple of paragraphs about it on the first page of the album.
