On the one hand, unemployment has been really good for my waist line.

On the other, I can't afford to buy new pants.

Sigh.

I knew the fact that I preferred to read fiction online versus playing video games would come back to bite me in the ass some day.

One vet visit and $450 later - I've decided to accept the job.

I received a job offer for a company in Falls Church. It's a very generous job offer, almost $17/hr, generous PTO/Vacation time, insurance, etc., etc. The work, however, just sounds plain boring. Processing case file after case file (8 an hour is the goal).

On the one hand - immediate availability, can come off COBRA from INTECH, more money than I've made in quite some time, steady employment.

On the other - it's in Falls Church (right next to Tyson's Conrner), I'd still be living in NoVA, strange hours to avoid traffic (some people start at 4:30 am!), the job sounds mind-numbing.

I'm still going to TX for the interview in Austin. I'm actually rather excited about the possibility of moving out and living on my own, even (especially?) to another state.

Decisions, decisions.

I was just commenting to Carrie that I only seem to get job offers when I either a) already have a job or b) am looking at a job that would take me far out of the area.

I have interview tomorrow, a submission from a recruiter to a hiring manager at another company, the company I interviewed with two weeks ago, an email from another company waiting for reply, and now, my name has been certified to a selecting official to work at the EEOC.

Jesus Christ. Where were these people two months ago?

One of the Chorale members died in his sleep last night. I didn't know him well, but he always had a kind word when we spoke.




I've gone ahead and forwarded my resume to Brandy about the job in Austin. No clue how that'll work out, especially if I get it, but I'm willing to give it a go. My parents are less sure.

I hate waiting for news on whether I got a job or not. I really need to start taking in some form income once again just so I can pay the bills. I kind of feel like Linguini from Ratatouille - the scene where he whimpers to Remy, "I really need this job. I've lost so many." Expect replace the rat with a ferret and the river Seine with a river of bills and you have me. Commiserating with a ferret over the fact that I just spend $85 on their food that I can't really afford right now.

I really don't want to have to work at Wal-Mart or similar store again. I hate retail.

Naked Time!

I'm currently siting on my bed, naked, watching West Wing Season 2 on one computer, idly reading Buffy fiction (GOD that's a blast from the past) on my laptop, and creating a webpage for my own edification.

I really, seriously, need to be looking for a new job.

I honestly have no idea why I wanted to share that with everyone, but I felt the need so I did.

Also, I finally beat Katamari Damacy. After three years of owning the game, I finally beat it yesterday. Seriously, that game should have been finished in a day, a week at most. Took me three years.

Procrastination for the WIN.
