Sports: Colts won, Texans lost. I still have the Colts picked for the Super Bowl! It’s September, so it’s time for the Houston Astros to do their annual, “well, we’ve flirted with contending for the pennant all year long, so it’s time to fade before the playoffs.” Sigh.
Job: I actually interviewed for a really cool job — two weeks ago. I was actually waiting to post that so I could post the happy happy joy joy — woo hoo I got a job! announcement. I was fairly confident I had a good shot at the job after I interviewed. The person who interviewed me even negotiated a schedule where I could give two weeks notice at my current part time job and still be trained for the new job. She told me to go home and check out the company’s benefits online, familiarize myself with the company, etc. I was definitely encouraged and excited about this job prospect. Flexible hours, great pay, benefits, and I could wear jeans. What more could I ask for? Well, a decision would be nice.
Two weeks later, she’s still interviewing for the job, but says I’m still a high contender. She also said the job description may change, which is why she’s doing so many interviews. So, though I may be a contender, I may not be if the job description changes. UGH. I’m back in limbo, not knowing what to do. I went through an agency and I guess I could have them put me on other jobs while I wait on this one. All I know is I’d take a decision on their part — either way. I hate limbo.
Finances: I’m too depressed to discuss them. Today, my monitor faded on me (came back on after I slammed my fist up against it — must have a short), and there wouldn’t have been much I could do about replacing it. I did, after all, buy some groceries Monday night, thus depleting all of my extra money (as if I ever have any – ha ha) until some time in October, or until I get a better paying job.
Writing: As always, whenever I get a good head of steam on something creative that I do on the computer — the computer (or something related to it) freaks out. Therefore, I am looking into hooking up the computer to my tv as an alternative in case the monitor goes out again. Meanwhile, I am working on some freelance things and other opportunities I will share with you as the plans become more solid.
Outdoors: Actually went outdoors yesterday. Walked to the park, shared the area with four old ladies and their tiny, barking furballs (I assume they are acutally dogs), got a little sun (good vitamins), listened to some good music and tiny barking furballs. Last night had splitting sinus headache from being outdoors. Not sure which is the better tradeoff… sun vs. splitting headache.
Weather: It’s been sunny, highs in the mid 80’s, lower humidity, not bad for going outside to trade off mild headache for sinus splitting one.
And, that’s the end of my updates for now. If my monitor cooperates, I will keep you updated. 🙂
