it ain’t real forgiving, sitting here picturing someone else living

My interview went well yesterday.  I have a second one next week where I’ll meet the people I would be working with, if they hire me.  If I get this job it will be full-time with benefits, which is awesome…but I’ll have to quit my job working with the kids, which sucks.  There isn’t any contest though because I can’t turn down health benefits at this point, not to mention more money.

I’m feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment.  I have a a splitting headache because I haven’t been sleeping, and I have a lot to accomplish this weekend:

  • Order bees
  • Start building the bee hive
  • Finish everything that’s left for my graduate school application
  • Clean multiple things
  • Get as much knitting done as I can

Here’s a pic of my progress on the Lacy Hug Me Tight.   The ribbed part is the body.  The lacy bit is one sleeve.  I’m at about half the length for the body.  I’m using Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Wheat.  It’s heavier than the pattern calls for, but it’s the best I could find at the craft shop.  And, I didn’t want to wait for mail order yarn to get here.  My gauge seems to be right though.

here we go again

I have another interview on Friday.  I seem like a very good choice for the job, but I’ve thought that before…

Not even going to bother writing about the details unless they offer it to me.

Also, I think it’s dumb that you need academic references when you apply for a graduate degree six years after undergrad.  I don’t know if any of my professors remember me.  In any case, I’m a very different person now than when I was in college.  I don’t really see how it’s relevant.  Especially since the forms from the department want to know about my sense of humor, or things like my “ability to calm others” and “ability to tolerate ambiguity.”   Really, Edinoro?

I’m getting seriously discouraged.  I’ve been applying for jobs for six months and no joy.  What is going on here?  Seriously, I’m a good employee.   Hire me, for chrissake.  And I better not have to do multiple interviews someplace again, totaling five hours, and then not get the job.  I am not a circus performer, people.   I am not jumping through your hoops.

Anyway, since I have an overabundance of free time I’ve started knitting.  At least you get a useful end product that way.  And, it’s kind of soothing even though I keep getting little pieces of fuzz everywhere, including up my nose.

I need a job.  For reals.

hire me, please

I have a second interview on Thursday for a lab job.  I had the first one on Wednesday and spent three hours there.  Three different people interviewed me.  I don’t really know what else they could possibly want to know.  I’m hoping that it’s sort of the we’re-offering-you-the-job type of meeting.

I really need this job.  It would solve all of my financial problems at the moment, and I would have health insurance.

Keep your fingers crossed.
