…and instead of getting Christmas vacation, I am working an earlier shift here at the call center. Then I work again tomorrow. No vacation for the bill payers. Instead, I am here ‘ruining’ half a dozen Christmases so far. Because, you know, it’s my fault since I was supposed to check up on every single Christmas order to make sure they would make it out in time for Christmas. *Sigh* And given the phone calls I’ve taken so far, the number of people I disappoint is going to spike.
I have one job possibility still on the horizon. The Burnsville Prince of Peace Lutheran Church is still looking for a Media Arts Specialist. I sent my resume to them quite a while ago, but I’ve had trouble making it to the interview. The first one we scheduled was during one of the larger snow storms this year, so we rescheduled. When I emailed HR about the second interview, they decided to postpone it until the first of the year. I’m not going to lie, I was a little upset. However, it sounded like they were looking to make it full-time. I’ll gladly wait for that.
I started working on a novel for my senior project at school. After I graduated, I decided to take a break from it and focus on job hunting and other things. In the last few weeks, I’ve been feeling a little hopeless in my job hunting. That’s when I decided to pick it up again. If I’m going to be stuck here, I might as well do something I love on the side. It was actually a good idea. i can now approach this book with a fresh, less-stressed out frame of mind. I like that.
I’m trying to keep the hope alive. I’ll try not to let this job eat at me. In the time I’ve tried to finish up this post, I have disappointed a couple more people. *repeats* I will make it through this day…
