For the first time in about a week, I got some job-related news. It seems that another position has come available at The Evil Empire and the agency wanted to know if I was interested. Due to the overwhelming lack of response (even rejection) lately, I eagerly signed on the dotted line to be thrown back into the shark tank to see if I might get a nibble. I may come out of this with some teethmarks, but maybe I’ll also come out of it sporting a paycheck. Which would, right now, rock my socks off! (For the record, I am actually not even wearing socks right now… but that isn’t because of a paycheck, it’s just because I never put any on today).
I was going to do more than I actually did today around the house but I was sortve expecting a package (because when I looked online it said it was “out for delivery”) so I didn’t want to get to running the vacuum or something and then miss the FedEx guy (who is like “The Wind“… you remember “The Wind” from the episodes of M*A*S*H, right?)
I’m really trying to have a good attitude. I’m just tired. And every day, I am more concerned that maybe I CAN’T really get a job and that if/when I do get one, I’ll have lost my skills. I know it sounds absurd, but it’s how I feel.
I hope something comes along soon. And that it is something good, not just something for which I will “settle”. Time now to sleep.
