It has been a fairly quiet week. The library is getting back to school year rhythm. Though there were a lot more kids yesterday during the day than expected, and a whole ton after school let out. One of our biggest Friday after-school snack days. The boss is back at Sprawl, for a bit, and I’m chugging away at the Glen Cook paperbacks.

I did have an interview this week, which I’ll hear back from soon. Super excited about the opportunity. Even got a haircut.

New, short haircut.

Was happy to get back to gaming this week, and get my curiosity back. Also, playing a lot of Kingdom Hearts this week because I got the Remix for my birthday. It’s still fun after all these years. On the reading front, I’m slowly working my way through Towers of Midnight, for another week. It’s a LONG one.

I got a call this week, from a staffing company who found my resume on Monster. And they asked me if I was interested in a full time data entry and analysis job for the county. Caught off guard, I wasn’t sure, but it could be good, so why not take a look. An Excel test was required to qualify, so she sent me an email with a link, and even less detail about the job. But an address, which I Googled, to find out what I might be looking at. The address brought up the county disability office and county special olympics office. Both could be good and useful places to work. I took the test on a mock up, pop-up of excel 2010, got three wrong, and waited. Today I got the call that they want to interview me… tomorrow. Excited, curious, nervous. And waiting on an email with further details. This could fulfill my goal of “meaningful job.” Both those offices help people. And it’s a real job, 40 hours a week, real wages, state benefits(unconfirmed). So, wish me luck and confidence.

I’m really not focused enough for anything else right now. Thanksgiving next week. Holidays fast approaching. No plans made. But fun to be had by all.

Life is good.

Working Full Time… Sorta September 15, 2011

So, last Friday I was asked to go in for an interview on Monday to help sort out the records at the school I keep talking about. They hired me on the spot and asked me to work for four weeks at slightly better pay than B&N. So, I said sure. They asked for 20 hours a week for at least the first two weeks, and then maybe 15 after that. Thus far, I have filled all the records requests that had backed up for both the old high school records and the current grade school records. I created a handful of new files out of old files and sent out records requests for them, and I have made two alphabetized stacks of files from a box labeled “Random.” And believe you me, it lived up to its name. Hurray for productivity and learning to use a fax machine.Next two projects: getting a state and federal background check and organizing 8 sets of alphabetized files into one continuous set of files. I think I’m also supposed to make copies of last year’s records for the files, but I’m not sure if the office manager is going to do that before I’m there tomorrow.

But this also means I’m working 32-40 hours a week now (depending on B&N), and generally 6 out of 7 days a week. So,I’m exhausted. I know most people do this all the time, but I’m not used to it anymore. Also, it is significantly delaying my web design course project, as I don’t have afternoons to work on it.  I do still have Monster sending me job listings, but I have the search on hold for the moment, too, until I see how this pans out.

Health-wise, still on a stable plateau. My hands/wrists got eaten by something at the school yesterday, but that’s just mild itchy annoyance. I need to get more glucosamine, but I find working full time cuts into errand time quite a bit. Maybe this weekend.
