A Sign

For the ninth time today I heard, “We’ll just call you, thank you for your time.” Freeing up the tears, I was about to crumple my five remaining resumes… when for no reasons, I looked up. — Photo Credit: Alyssa Smith In response to Sonya’s Three Line Tales Week Four. The TLT rules are simple: […]
