I have slowly been applying to jobs because why not. I have justI graduated, travel plans are ruined and I’m bored at home. In the next few months, I will take it more seriously, but for right now, I’m only apply to one or two a day. And so far they are the standard rejection emails.

Some words might be different, but they are usually all along the same line. Like I mentioned, I am not so pressed to get a job right now, so I’m not taking it personally
Well, this afternoon I got an email from one of the companies I applied to. It wasn’t a straight up rejection, I was told there wasn’t any positions available at the moment. Some not-so-sane part of me decided, why not reply to this email. No harm, no foul. Right?
And this person replying made my day because I never expected it.
And maybe what I did was not the norm. So what though. Its not like anything was bad. And I am not normal. I am weird and quirky, and that is my personality.
I guess I was just excited to hear from a real person not one of those automated emails.
