Hello all,

     I desperately need your help!  As some of you are aware, due to budget cuts in my county, I lost my job a little over two years ago and have been unemployed ever since.  At this point I have applied for hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds)of jobs, to no avail.  It’s very frustrating to say the least, especially since I am considered “highly qualified” by having my Bachelors, Masters, & Specialist degrees - and have finished all my coursework for my Doctorate degree.  I guess all those years of schooling really paid off, huh? (insert sarcasm)


   I always believe in signs and figure I must not have been able to get another teaching job because there is something bigger and better out there for me – and I think I may have found my dream job!  There are a couple of positions open with Sixthman, the Atlanta-based company that puts on music cruises such as Rombello, Cayamo, The Rock Boat, Simple Man Cruise, etc.  With my love of music, travelling, and meeting new people, I think I would be perfect for one of the two following jobs:  Ninja or Wingman (at the end of this post I will put the descriptions listed to give you an idea of what these jobs are)  


     I have sent in my resume and cover letter and am hoping for the best.  Here’s where you come in…  If any of you out there feel like you know me well enough and would be willing to write me a brief letter of recommendation, I would GREATLY appreciate it!!!  It doesn’t have to be much, perhaps just an explanation of how you know me and why you think I would be an ideal candidate for a job with Sixthman. 

If you are willing to do this, please email it to: with the subject: Erica M. Norman – Letter of Reference


     If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at: or call/text at (912)275-1489.  Again, I appreciate any help you can give me, even if it’s just a positive thought or prayer.  Wish me luck!

Sure!  How's this:

Dear cruise people,

Hire Bad Habit, or else we will pirate your ship and remove your booty.

You gotta be really bangin' on that guitar to make a bolo tie look good.
