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!

How To Irritate Your Roommate 111

Well, if you’ve missed my previous posts about my horrible roommate, or former roommate, at this point, you can read them here, here, and here!  We are moving on to:

111 – Move out, and don’t clean up after yourself!!

Hannah has now moved out, turns out Rachel pretty much has, as well.  Hannah, however, moved all her stuff out, temporarily made the front of our apartment look like it was the junk left over from a rummage sale, but failed to leave her room in the condition she received it in!  I went into her room, OBVIOUSLY no vacuum had seen that floor, probably, since we’d moved in!  There was some trash left, and I don’t want to get in trouble for it!  She then told me I could keep whatever she left as far as food, which, then also leaves me to clean out the fridge, of which is ONLY a mess because she spilled kool-aid all over it!  She only left me a jar of pickles, a couple cans of sprite and other crap i won’t touch.  Then, as I was going through the downstairs closet, she left her Christmas tree holder, and other crap I don’t want to and shouldn’t have to take care of!!!!  I’m not a happy camper!

In Other News:

My apartment now looks like someone robbed it, but left the good couch, a chair (both of which are Rachel’s, she hasn’t called me back to let me know when she’s coming to get those), and a TV on top of a coffee table.  REALLY pitiful!  And I don’t have one fork in the house, I have 140 spoons, but NO FORKS!!!!  I had a blond moment and apparently bought 2 boxes of spoons, thinking it was a combination of forks, spoons and knives.  Ramen noodles aren’t easy to heat with spoons, unless you crunch them up very finely, still a pain!!!  I haven’t figured out a place to live yet, so I’m stressing out about that, and the job thing!  I tried calling for unemployment, but they love to hang up on you, the recording says there may be high call volume, when I’m calling right as they open, and then says they can’t take my call!!!  I called 5 times today!!!  I’m just a little stressed at the moment!!!

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!!!!

Why I Love Karaoke

We have FUN!!!!! Even I don’t get judged for my HORRIBLE singing, and what’s more fun than watching a bunch of drunks make even bigger fools of themselves??

Case in point:

This is my friend, Katie, singing, and I was trying to figure out why it is we can’t hear her sing, and it’s because the god-awful singing in the background is me!!!! Oh, and I did giggle periodically through it! The men in the background, they are, what they call themselves, the Whoresmen! They came up with their own moves to Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats”!!!!

Later, I’ll post the other video of Katie singing Suds in the Bucket! She said her husband had never heard her sing, so now he has!

I decided not to sing that night, only because it didn’t start out the greatest, we had one of these lovely contraptions attached to my vehicle, along with a ticket saying it’ll cost me $50!!! We literally had left the car for less than 10 minutes, and it was already taken hostage!!

My poor scarlett (I named my car, call me silly, but she was too pretty not to be named, and, no she’s not red, I wanted a red version of her, but the white works too, she needed a proper southern name though, and it doesn’t get more southern than scarlett LOL)!!!! The jerk who put it on was still there, and he said he’d knock my ticket down to $20, I advised him we went in to get some cash and came back out, he said three people had come and went in and came back out to pay in the time since we walked in (Bologna!), so I paid him (I hope he needed that $20 more than my unemployed butt did!), and went back in.

Words of Advice: If parking @ Cafe Coco, downtown Nashville, you will pay, whether be the normal amount, or more!!!!

And let me tell you, that parking attendant was VERY busy that night, so I wasn’t the only one!

The Grim Job Market!!!!

Man, I wish I had a job, it’s been about 5 weeks since losing 2 jobs in a week and I was smart enough to have money saved up, however, if I don’t find something soon, we may need to look to other options (selling kidneys, standing on street corners, etc) won’t be pretty!!!!  My friend and I were going to go take a test to work for the state today (she’s in the same boat), but my friend, Katie, ran off with my keys accidentally last night, so I’m stuck, and Sarah HATES driving around downtown, and I am not driving her car!  So, tomorrow, I have an interview for a job in Cool Springs (not a dream job by any means, but a source of what could be good income) and so we’ll see, I keep applying, but it’s getting incredibly frustrating!  Oh well, I guess it’s kind of in God’s hands now, so we shall hope, AND PRAY!!!!!!
