It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining brightly in the clear cerulean sky and here I was worried about getting crow’s feet because I forgot an important summer staple: sunglasses (I really need to buy these Karen Walker “Butler” sunglasses that I fancy). Odd, our friend, Wenche and I went around town and pretended to be tourists. Lugging our DSLR cameras and in Wenche’s case, her baby as well strapped to her body, we bravely navigated the crowded streets as Bergen during the summer was always full of tourists.
“I think this is a good spot,” I said, pointing at a bench under a tree. The shade was inviting because I had enough dose of the sun for a day. I sat first before the others followed suit.
“I heard that you got a new job,” said Wenche.
“Yes! A job that I always wanted,” I said, my eyes twinkling with glee. “I just got lucky to be honest.”
“Why so?” she said, placing her camera back inside her bag before checking her beautiful baby boy who was still fast asleep.
“I actually applied for another position which was of course computer related,” I replied. “But during the interview I guess they found out that I’m more predisposed to design. So the next day they called and told me that I didn’t get the job as a tech support, but instead as a web designer. They even asked me if it’s okay.”
“What did you say?” she said, sounding intrigued.
“Of course, I said yes! Knowing they’re not actually hiring for one until January next year, but somehow I managed to convince them,” I said with a grin and a certain degree of exuberance. “It’s a lovely company and the office’s location is to die for! It’s like a ten-minute walk from where we live. Plus, I can tell that the people working there are very nice. I have really good vibe on this, I tell you!”
“That sounds really wonderful and congratulations!” said Wenche. “What do you think about this Odd?”
“I’m really happy and proud of him,” he said, kissing me on the cheek.
I made some slight changes in my site’s design. I hope you like it guys
