But everything that could go wrong did go wrong.
They emailed me on the 2nd and 10th, and called me on the 14th and 20th trying to get in touch with me.
I didn’t get to the phone on the 20th, but I checked my voicemail, and was so excited! I just hope they’re not upset with me that their emails got buried in my junk mail or that my phone never gave me a voicemail notification for the first call.
But I’m really nervous about my new nose piercing.
I got it 2.5 weeks ago because at that time, I didn’t think I got the internship. Plus, in the field that I want to work in, Video Game Programming, they don’t really care what you look like. Many of them have amazing tattoos and piercings everywhere.
But this internship might be more corporate….. I’m worried. So against my original plan of not changing my piercing for 3 months, I changed it today to a small dark purple stud. I’m hoping it just gets mistaken for a well placed mole. But if it comes down to it and they say I have to remove it? I dunno what I’ll do. I guess I’d go out and try to find some clear or brown flat retainers, and if they say that isn’t ok, I’ll try tape and makeup. It won’t be pretty, but they can’t assume I’m not hiding an oozing wound, I could be.
I really don’t want to take it out just because someone else doesn’t like it. It’s not distracting. The only thing it does is maybe take the attention off my boobs and pull it toward my face, where it’s supposed to be. Not that people stare at my boobs or anything.
I’m not an un-marked human body. I’ve got scars and decorations on my body. I just hope the way I present myself outweighs this little jewel on my face.
