However, I recently realized I'm the same way when I hear that someone got a great new job or promotion, or is doing something awesome with their career. Like when Liza told me she's going to L.A. next week to do a photo shoot with two A-list celebrities, I was on the verge of being suicidal. You're working with celebrities? That's my thing. Well, it used to be. I haven't worked with a celeb in so long, I'd probably be excited to interview Carrot Top. (What the heck is he up to these days?) I'm my sister's biggest cheerleader, but sometimes life just doesn't seem fair.
Oh and remember the girl I told you about in this post? Well whattaya know, she done landed herself a job! A GOOD job. It took me over a year to get a job after graduation! And I recently talked to a girl who lost her job around the same time I did who has scored a bijillion sweet freelance gigs, one right after the other. (One was at a magazine I would KILL to work for.) Sigh. In this sense, I am just like the girls I mentioned above. I constantly find myself thinking, "I want what she's got...and better shoes."
Tell me: Do you find yourself feeling this way about other people? Is it usually about personal or work-related things?
