ZOMG. E. Jean Wrote About Me In Elle Magazine!

Holy shyte!  http://www.elle.com/content/view/full/325607

It would seem I’m almost a month late to the party, but remember that reality show I applied to waaaaay back, I think in April-ish?  The advice columnist one that I totally bombed?  It was for a competition whose prize included an internship with Elle Magazine’s own E. Jean (winner in my books of Awesomest Feisty Redhead EVAAAAAR – runner up is Judge Marilyn Milian of People’s Court).

Well, I wrote a quasi-humorous appeal to E. Jean after my Utter Fail, and it turns out that she wrote back!  Or rather, she published my note in her column, and responded with some awesome advice as well as an offer of a four-month telecommuting internship (one hour a day, six days a week) working for her!  Which is absolute amazingness and insanity!!!!!!!

So, now I’m panicking, hoping that I didn’t absolutely botch things by not finding out about this sooner… The first I read of it was today, and the column was published back on July 24th.  With all the setbacks Matt and I have been besought by lately, I haven’t had as much time to spend online, and the time I have had has been spent looking for work nonstop.

I am absolutely ready and raring to go, if the offer hasn’t yet been rescinded.  I shot an e-mail to E. Jean and am crossing my fingers, toes, eyes (everything crossable) that she isn’t completely offended that I didn’t answer back earlier, which of course I totally would have if I had known!  This is seriously a super-amazing opportunity, andI’m praying that I haven’t blown it (and believe me, when you’re an agnostic atheist, praying only comes in those rare hours of utter despair – i.e., when you really really really want a favor).

So E. Jean, if you get my e-mail or read this, a zillion bajillion thanks for the incredible offer and I would love to accept, assuming you haven’t yet written me off.

  6. I just wanted to say I have never heard about you before until I came across this on AOL and I wanted to also say “I am very proud of you!!!” I was homeless before and ran away from an abusive home, it was terrible what I went through and thank God I survived! I am a CNA now, raised 3 daughters and I think you are absolutely incredible!!! ~D~

  7. God can do great things when you believe, I wish you and Matt the best of luck and and I will keep you in my prayers, good luck and never, ever give up hope

  8. I find you an inspiration. I just found your blog quite by accident. I have never been homeless, thank God, however I must say I did have the stereotype in my head that you describe. Kudos to you and your Family. Your dog is beautiful. Best wishes & I look forward to reading more from you!!

  10. Hi, I read the article about you from my friend’s Elle magazine while waiting for her to get ready. I remember asking my friend if she was done with the magazine so I can take it home so I can finish the article. I’m really, really happy to hear all these positive things coming your way. Good luck and take care!

  11. WOW I am in tears. I read Jean’s letter to you and got chills. What an opportunity!!!
