Heading to a job interview in about 20 minutes. It's for a job I don't want and I'm not sure I will enjoy doing, and getting it will require 4 hours worth of bus riding every day that I work, but I really really need it so I'm still hoping to get it.

So wish me luck getting the cruddy job I don't want! Because otherwise I'm going to end up stuck moving to Atlanta (and goddess knows I won't be able to stand the South again....).

Well, the job is at a collections agency. They pay $9 an hour, which is actually quite good. It's steady hours, steady pay, and decent incentives if you manage to collect a certain ammount of money from folks. It's easy work, that's for sure. I'll be working late mornings, afternoons, and evenings, so bussing won't be a problem. The only bad part is the 2 hours commute to and from work (that and the fact that I'll be extorting money from broke people. Of course, most broke people I know in the US do it to themselves, so....). Of course, this can be fixed with weekly trips to the Seattle Public Library (and regular time spent re-assessing my own finances). I'll know whether I have the job or not on Friday, probably by noon. If I get it, I start Monday.

Keep sending the good luck! I need this job so bad, so I need all I can get!

It's noon now. I'm probably jumping the gun, but my gut is saying that I didn't get the job. Blah.... I'll update again if they actually call in the next while. Heck, I'll update and whine and attention whore if I don't get it, too. tongue.gif

Didn't get it. Waited up all day hoping for a call....nada. I'm not exactly crushed, though. I wasn't relishing the thought of spending four hours in public trasportation every day that I work.

On the up side, I have another interview today. It's for a job that I think I'll like a lot more, AND it's within a half hour bus ride of me (if I"m lucky and the right bus is running, that is. Otherwise it's 45 minutes to an hour. But still...).

If it's only a half hour bus ride, it won't be that long a walk.

Good luck, hunny wink.gif

I HAVE A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
::streaks::

I start tomorrow at 12:30. I'm going to be a canvasser for WashPIRG. Basically, I'm going to be going door-to-door or hanging out downtown and talking to people about saving the environment, and taking donations for non-profit organizations like the Sierra Club. My new boss wants to train me to be a field manager within a couple of weeks if I do as well as she thinks I'll do during my field training. I'm thrilled! I actually get to get paid to do something I really care about! :: dances:: biggrin.gif

Aaaand, as an added bonus, grass-roots campaign experience will be great for Democratic Party street cred when I run for president in 2020! ph34r.gif

Now you make sure you get plenty of rest. And make sure you set your alarm. And put out your clothes the night before. And make sure you eat breakfast to keep you going. And, enjoy wink.gif

Went to bed early and tried to get plenty of rest. Randy stayed up until waaay too early in the morning (and woke me up three times, once from noise, once from me rolling over and him not being there, and the last time when he finally got into bed and decided to chat at me for a while) despite urgent warnings that if he did so I would "repeat Sherman's March to the Sea using my fists as his army and his head as Georgia" if he did it. (Note to self: Must find non-violent way of revenge....)

Set my alarm clock for the proper time (and made sure it would actually go off). Doesn't matter, though, because I half woke up at about 6 AM and laid in half-sleep limbo until 8:30. Then I decided that it just wasn't worth me lying there to try to get the extra hour's worth of sleep and got up.

Didn't set out my clothes last night. I'm already pretty certain of what I'm going to wear. My instructions were to dress warmly, be comfortable, and look sort-of professional (IE: don't come in looking like a slob). Easy enough to do, right? rolleyes.gif

As for breakfast, I'm going to make myself some oatmeal as soon as I've woken up enough to be hungry. I'd take a sandwich to work to make sure I had something to eat for lunch, but we're out of everything but oatmeal (literally....everything) and I haven't gone grocery shopping yet this week. So I'll probably end up doing take-out or something.

Keep sending luck my way! I'd really like to do well my first week! biggrin.gif

Thanks smile.gif

The interview went well (I think) but it's one of those ones where you just don't know whether you think you've got it or not. I made the mistake of going first thing so I've been waiting since 11am to see what happens. The longer I wait the more I think I've not got it. They said they'd ring later today but I don't know whether that means they'll ring if I've got it or not or only if I've got it sad.gif

Just waiting now sad.gif

Ack. It's the waiting. that gets me too. I went for a job a couple of weeks back, and it was kinda simular in that I didn't clarify with them if they'd call me either way, or only if I got the job. That was before the meet. Needless to say, I don't tihn k I got it.

I'm sure they just went and had a _really_ long lunch.

Brilliant! I shall try that!

In other news, my job is a canvassing job. I go door to door in the area our field manager has assigned me and try to convince people to become members of the Sierra Club. Once you get over the fact that you're knocking on strange people's doors and hitting them up for cash, it becomes very easy. It becomes even easier once you learn to not take "no" answers personally.

Right now I'm caught between loving and hating it: loving it because I adore the people I work with and I really am passionate about saving the environment, but hating it because I'm horribly out of shape and walking 2+ miles a day up and down stairs to people's houses is really hurting. But I'm persistant and I will not give up! I'm getting paid to help save the environment AND loose weight, this really is the best thing for me.

The freaky thing is, the person they set me up to train with my first day is almost exactly like me, to scary degrees. If she weren't 8 years older than me I wouldn't believe my mom when she said I didn't have a twin. We have the exact same laugh, we like the exact same things, we think the same way.....it's crazy. Our current theory is that we were spawned in the same lab.
