1 Very Long but Fun Interview
I really, really, really want a corn dog. Or a Chicago style hot dog. Might do chili dogs for dinner tomorrow. With some oven roasted potatoes, onions, and tomatoes.
Other than that, I’m exhausted, in pain, and relatively miserable other than getting to cuddle with Bianco for a bit earlier this evening.
We had caprese salad for dinner. It was good. I put just enough balsamic vinegar glaze that mine was delicious. Bianco liked it as well, though he’s not one for salads. More for me!
I had my interview today with the retail position. It went well, but there’s no guarantee of decent income. It’s maybe 20 hours a week at just over minimum wage. Which is frustrating given my decade plus of experience in retail and over a year previously at this particular employer. But… they were also the ones who laid me off full time and rehired me part time so I no longer qualified for benefits. So it feels like a major backslide.
I’m just… not in a good place mentally right now. Or fiscally. I don’t know what I’m going to do.
I’ve tried temp agencies, but no bites yet. I put in most of my apps only a week ago, though, so that could be my fault?
I’m going to go crochet some more before bed; maybe chat with Jæ a bit.
Just keep swimming, I guess. I know the job market it tumultuous at best right now, so I can’t let my employment define my idea of personal success.
Take your meds, folks.
