Rian's Dilemma


I borrowed this Burberry dress from Dawn. I really enjoyed wearing it, but I've already said my goodbyes. This one has to go back to my sister. She let me borrow it, so I could wear it to an event at school yesterday. An important politician came to tell us about dividing budgets and requesting funds. It was really interesting. Because it was quite a big deal that he came to our school a lot of the staff and several of their influential guests were present. This was the perfect time to increase my network. Before yesterday it was practically nonexistent, so I had to do my best to at least exchange a few business cards. I've met some interesting people, but I didn't feel very comfortable. I'm a bookish girl who doesn't feel at ease among a crowd like that. I needed to do my best to be social and I think I've done an OK job, but that didn't mean I had to like it.
Rian received several job requests. Someone has asked him to work for one of the largest media companies in the country. It means he'd have to give up teaching, but also that he won't have time anymore to write his books. The salary is great and it's a wonderful opportunity, but he likes his current situation very much. I'm curious to see what he's going to decide. It would mean summer school with someone else for me, so I hope he'll stay.

  1. The dress looks lovely - sometimes clothes are just what is needed to give us a confidence boost. Are you a school librarian? I used to be one many years ago.

    1. Thank you very much, it's true clothes can influence how you feel so much. I'm working in a city library. Are you still working as a librarian?
