In Other News


I got a job.  

I know.  It's a miracle.  And honestly, I just don't know what to do with myself now that I'm not spending six hours a day job hunting.  I just sit here at my computer, staring at all of the links and Web sites that no longer needed to be checked ONE THOUSAND TIMES PER DAY.  And, since I have a completely crazed and obsessive mind that always needs to be focused on "hunting" for something, I've now turned to apartments.  Which I won't be moving into anytime soon.  But, you know, just something to do.  

Since some very sweet inquiring minds have asked what I'll be up to... I've gotten a position as an assistant at a votech high school only 15 minutes from my house.  (Fifteen minutes!  Do you know how CLOSE that is!?  And it doesn't involve $330 in monthly commuting costs!  Or freaky businessmen offering me early morning massages.  I just don't know how I'll handle it.)  Technically the job is only temporary until June - and part-time, from 10-5 - with the hope to become fulltime once they finalize their funding for next year blah blah blah.  I'll be supporting one of the program directors/school assistant principals - working to promote certain school programs, some grantwriting, school newsletters, etc.  

And the biggest shocker of all?  I'm actually excited.  Anyone who knows me - anyone who is acquainted with my impossible job standards - realizes the enormity of this statement.  But I really do think a school environment will be good for me.  I like being surrounded by academia.  Everyone that I've met there so far is super duper nice.  Plus they seem desperate for help so I feel like I'll be well utilized and actually busy and bustling all the time (as opposed to a slovenly minion on the corporate totem pole). 

I'm slated to start the 24th.  So hooray to money and having a life purpose.  

Note:  The school also happens to be across the street from the mall.  Bad things might happen.

Huge Congrats on the new job! I used to work across from a mall, too. Yes, bad things happen. Start looking for another closet (or two) now, lol.

CONGRATULATIONS!! You sassy girl, I knew you'd land on your feet quickly. I'm so happy for you. You're just going to need to program your car to go on autopilot, so that you steer clear of that mall!
