What a tizzy I was in yesterday!!!!! I learned about the entries for the Provincial Art Bank just two days before the deadline, which was yesterday, the 11th. I thought all I had to do was to fill out a form as I had done before for other exhibits. Nothing to it!!! Boy, was I surprised!! In reading the material for entry I learned that a "CV" was required---what the heck is that? Off I go to "Google" and discovered it meant "Resume". Now I had never done a resume before. I was my own employer and the people who worked with me were those that I knew. Well, my nerves were unstrung for sure. In searching for samples of a CV/Resume, I found most of it didn't apply to me as I wasn't looking for a job, I wanted to sell a piece of Art. After a couple of hours, I decided to get in touch with my son, Dale, who I knew was quite busy because of his duties as Professor at MUN University. Lo and behold I caught him a time when he wasn't too busy and he asked me to do a write up for him and he would send it back as a Resume. It arrived about an hour later and Boy, was I proud. I could'nt believe all the "stuff" was about me when indeed it was. Later when I talked to him about it, I told him I felt like I had a million dollars in my hand as I headed off to post my project. Maybe, just maybe I will get an acceptance because of how wonderful my CV looks..... :) :) Thank God for children...Thanks Dale xx
