Job Stuff

Well, it's been a while . . . as usual.

In regards to my last few posts, NaNo is going along great. The real news, however, is that I finally have a job! A friend of mine works at Borders and mentioned they were hiring for holiday help. Now, I haven't had much success looking for retail work in the past, but as anyone who's done any job hunting will tell you: it's not what you know, it's who you know. So, with Ashley's help I was able to get an interview, and I just got a call letting me know I was hired. It's just for the holiday season, but depending on how things go, I may be able to stay on past that. But that depends on a lot of factors, my work performance being just a small part of it, so I'm trying not to plan on it. However, the idea of not having to go back to job searching is a prospect that's hard to get out of my head.

Also, Pat has been working at the Brookfield Zoo for about a month now. Not exactly what he's looking for, obviously, but it's money. So, as of next Tuesday (which will be my first day of training), we're both working again. Both only part-time, minimum wage jobs, but it's better than where we were a couple months ago. Where we'll be a couple months from now . . . who knows?
