Okey dokey… I am now officially employed. There is the caveat that I don’t have a criminal history, of course. I don’t, so that shouldn’t be a problem. So why is there always a vague, underlying panic that something will turn up? I haven’t even had a ticket in something like ten years! (knockonwoodknockonwood)

I guess that’s probably a natural reaction. Either way I have a job. I will admit to you that it is not the job I particularly wanted, but it is a job, and in today’s economy, I couldn’t ask for more. Besides, it’s something different that I haven’t done in the past and it’s a department that people seem to like, so what the Hell, right? I had expected one of my friends to still be working there. He just went back. HOWEVER, I talked to him this afternoon and he actually is now working at a company I was trying to get into. Go figure.

Either way you look at it, I’m relieved. Sure it’s a big pay cut, but it’s a job. We’ll have to see how it all goes.

Am I just trying to convince myself?

Interview Jitters

Is it completely weird that I am freaked out about my interview tomorrow? You wouldn’t think that I would be. It’s not like I’ve never interviewed before. AND this is essentially a company that I used to work for. So why do I feel like it is life and death with this one?
It’s Sunday night and I’m watching American Dad and drinking a beer. I’d say which one, but they aren’t going to sponsor me so why bother? LOL Danny is outside wandering around and looking at his plants. 

Overall, it’s been a trying week of sorts. We had to suddenly move my Grandma into assisted living on Wednesday do to the fact that my aunt and uncle are dicks. I might tell you everything that happened, because I’m still bitter about it. I’ve been down there pretty much all week. I did agree to buy my Grandma’s car, so that’s cool. I feel safe driving again. It’s a Buick, so I am totally a sixty-five year old man. Things one does for a luxury automobile.
Anyway, we moved her this week and today I allowed my Mom to buy me a suit for the interview. I know it’s pathetic that I don’t own a suit, but I feel owning one is sort of dirty. I don’t know why, and I can’t afford the therapy to figure out why. Maybe it’s too Republican for me. I know that Democrats wear them too, but there is just something so… right wing about suits. Stupid, I know, but there you go.

I hope I haven’t jinxed myself by talking about the interview tomorrow. I’m worried that I’m going to sweat like a pig. Well, not like a pig because they don’t sweat, but you know what I’m trying to say. Without a doubt, I totally will, though. I’m going to have to take some paper towels with me. Hopefully I’m going to be able to take my jacket off when I do the hours worth of listening before my interview. We’ll see.

As for now, I’ll just try to get some sleep tonight, get up tomorrow and use the lint roller on the suit coat before I leave the house. I’ll make sure I have a pack of gum, or maybe I’ll stop and get some mints. Beyond that I’m just going to have trust my winning smile and delightful personality to make it through.

And a wad of paper towels.

This is week three of unemployment. I received my first severance check last week. It’s Sunday night and I should be depressed about having to go to work tomorrow. Instead, I’m depressed about not having a job and having no where to go tomorrow.

I haven’t even had a bite yet, even after submitting tons of resumes. So, where to go now. I am going to take a good hard look at my resume and see if I can revise it. I’ll be sure to post it on here for your enjoyment. =o)

On the plus side, I am going to be able to buy my grandma’s car. It’s a 2001 (loaded) Buick Century. She’s hardly driven it, and not at all the past year or so, although it has been used to get her to the doctors. Grandma’s another topic I will be talking about at a later date.

Anywho… I don’t know what else to say. Just that I am down today.

Have a good week, everyone!
