It’s been a while. I’m sorry.
As of my last post, the position that looked promising with Tara turned out to be a dead end. It looked like I was going to get the job. Here’s what went down: the hiring person emailed me on Monday at 4 p.m. She said she’d like to talk to me about the position, and I took this to mean a pre-interview. The next morning at 10:30 a.m., the woman called me and told me she had already offered the job to someone else and that they had accepted. But she told Tara she would still talk to me, so here she was. Man. Professionalism just oozes out of people here.
I teamed up with a staffing agency called Express and there are currently two positions on the table that I could be offered. One of them is called a Product Launch Specialist and it’s with a pharmaceuticals company. It’s a big girl job and I’d be delighted to have it. The other is a Data Entry Specialist that I had to endure 5 different tests for. It’s temporary, starting at only 4 months, but I’d still take it. I’m certainly qualified. I had an appointment with Express on April 19 and haven’t heard anything from them; however, they called Molly earlier this week for a reference call, so that’s promising.
Aside from still looking for work, I’ve been in an awful mood lately. Justin and I keep fighting over stupid things and taking forever to make up for them. Money seems to be getting tighter which puts more stress on the job situation. However, from fighting comes making up. And from making up comes Cool Mint Oreos. So, all is well.
I discovered Skype last week. I am very late to the party on that one, since Skype is as old as Justin and me. I was always under the impression that Skype was expensive, under the false pretense that you had to use a data/phone plan with it. This is not the case if all you do is video chat, which my mother and I are now pros at.
It was great fun. We’ve Skyped several times over the last week and it really helps to soothe the ills of not being able to see each other as often as we’d like.
I watched a few documentaries this morning, “America the Beautiful” and “America the Beautiful 2” about body image. I recommend the first one very much. The second one was good, but I didn’t like it as much as the first one. I also recommend “Let’s Talk About Sex.” That documentary is about how young people are subjected (or not, rather) to sex at a proper age and how it’s contributing to the STD and pregnancy epidemics. One more I really liked was “Mansome” which is about society’s perception of male grooming and appearance. Very provocative. All of these are on Netflix.
If you’re a big Netflixer like myself, don’t bother with Hemlock Grove. I waited with bells on for that show, and once I made myself finish it, I wasn’t very impressed.
I bought my mom’s Mother’s Day gift yesterday. I was absolutely stoked that they still had this item (I’ll explain after MD. I don’t want her to randomly see this post and know what she’s getting!). She’s going to love it.
I believe this is where my ramblings come to an end. Happy Friday, and I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
