Bringing You Up To Speed

Since the last time I blogged (seems like forever, really), I have moved out from living with “Joan Crawford“, and now reside with a gay couple (and their cat, let’s not forget the damn cat)!  They are 23 year-old guys, and not all that bad in relation to previous roommates.

Jeremy – The outgoing roommate, former marine, country boy, owns a ghost hunting company

Chris – AKA Sunshine, very quiet, acts like a child, walks around holding his game boy ALL the time

Winslett – The damn cat.  They couldn’t have picked a gayer name if they tried!

Mike – (36) Army dude who moved in with us temporarily, but has now turned into indefinitely. Unemployed, and vehicle doesn’t run. He dated Chris years ago, but only went out a couple of times because Chris played his game boy all through dinner!

Nick – (19) Mike’s boyfriend, who lives in Columbia.  Only had a part-time job. No vehicle

And So The Search Continues…

We are now 5 months into the job search, and I’ve been in panic mode for the last 3 of them!  Now, I’m in the freak out stage, where my dad is telling me he can’t keep supporting me, and I still haven’t had any nibbles!  My bank account overdrew, he was supposed to put money in, yet it never made its way in.  Last week, I was dealing with the whole moving fiasco, and as soon as I was back online, I must have sent out 20 resumes and cover letters, and not one phone call!  I’m just so irritated and ready to throw in the towel, with nowhere to turn.  The ony thing is I don’t have anywhere to go.  Michigan isn’t an option, they’ve got higher unemployment rates than Tennesee, and as for living with my mother, NO THANKS!  With the whole country having issues, I feel stuck.  And what kills me is my little brother, 20, who is going to school and working full time, is making more money than I’ve ever made!  He had to drop out of college because of his “depression” and has screwed up way more than me, yet things are going well for him!  I just don’t get it, why am I still going around this mountain??????  I haven’t had an interview in over a week, and I’m assumming I didn’t get that one since I never heard back.  The one the week before that, they said they’d certainly let me know EITHER WAY, and NOTHING!!!!!!  If anyone hears of anybody hiring, where it wouldn’t require me to be on my feet all day, let me know, I have a Bachelor’s Degree and can do anything administrative, and have fantastic customer service skills!

I’m ‘Bout to Lose It!!!

My sanity and patience are in jeopardy! Today marks 4, count them, 1, 2, 3, 4 months since I was let go from my last job (the one that counted). I have been on numerous interviews, been snubbed, been told I was showing too much cleavage, and now, I’ve been told, more than once, that whether I get the job or not, I would receive a response from the prospective employer, and NOPE, don’t hear a lick! One job I interviewed for 2 weeks ago, and haven’t heard back, he said I’d hear back by last week, and then I had an interview last Friday, and they said they’d have a decision by Wednesday, so I gave it until Thursday to hear something, and still NOTHING!!! It just irritates me when people say they will do something, and not, plus I hate being left hanging! I did talk to a psychic (don’t worry, I didn’t waste any money on it, but I still think she is somewhat legit by what she knew about me), and she told me I’d have a job by the end of the month, but it’s getting a little iffy. I’m just hoping and praying something comes up soon!

I never thought I’d go off like this guy, but I think I’m about there!!!!

Today I had an interview at a staffing agency here in Nashille, TN. Some background on me….I moved here from southern Illinois in 2005. Today during the interview the woman while she was looking over my paperwork I spent 2 hours doing she asked “So what brings you back to Nashville?”. “Back?” I asked.

Now this woman reminds you of a witchy old librarian or an old English teacher. “Do you know what BACK means?” I told her I didn’t move BACK to Nashville (the paperwork she was reading had the dates I worked in IL). She pushed her glasses to the tip of her nose and she eyed me over the rims “Honey, what town do you think you are in?”. I was so insulted. I showed her my history on the paperwork. She then apologized. Man, I was so happy to get out of there. What a dumbass.

Just My Luck!!

What is the matter with this picture???? It’s OK, be honest, I’m sure you wouldn’t be telling me anything I haven’t already heard

I know the weight is an issue, but, unfortunately, it’s not something you can wave a magic wand at, and tomorrow, it’ll be gone…I’m aware of that issue, but other than that, I have a college education, smart as a whip, and a wonderfully outgoing personality! Why can’t I find a job???? I’m stumped! Today, I went in for an interview at the Learning Lab in Brentwood, and she sat down, and told me she met with a woman this morning, and told her after 2 minutes that the interview was over, because she was showing too much cleavage, and that she felt the same about me!!!!! I happen to be well endowed in that area, and this is what I was wearing, there was no possibility of them making an appearance, but she said it’s a family business and she was going to stick to her guns!!! What a crock! The only thing I can be thankful for was that now I know I don’t belong there, but was the bluntness really that necessary??? I just can’t get over it, and I’m one who is very conservative, I don’t let things hang out like I belong on some street corner, but that’s how she made me feel when she said that!!!! Apparently, I need a turtleneck, in JULY!!!!

Just watching the “wooded rapist” on the news, and they had said he worked at the WB Technologies, I actually went in there for an interview, the man seemed real nice (one of the owners, not Burdick), but I must say I am thankful I never came into contact with someone capable of violating, traumatizing and damaging (emotionally and physically) women, and to think he’d gotten away with it for 14 years!!!!! Just amazes me how people can get employment, and still no one knew a thing!!! I actually hadn’t heard about the “wooded rapist” until he was caught, but still it’s good it’s not an issue any longer!!! Way to go law enforcement!!! Usually, I’m not a fan of you (tickets, got a lead foot apparently) but you made us proud on this one!!!!!

Thank You!!!!

There’s an article I read about how obese women have the hardest time finding jobs…he says everything everyone should hear!!!
