It’s been a week and there is still no word from either company that I interviewed with. I was in the first group of second interviews for Company B. I think they were scheduling interviews through yesterday. I suppose I should not worry yet. I have no idea how many other people Company A was considering, so I have no idea whether or not to worry there. Company A could not tell me exactly when they want to start, just ‘Soon.’ Company B’s training class doesn’t start until May 11, so maybe they’ll start calling people next week. I’ll try not to worry. I’m going to keep reminding myself how good those interviews felt. Please keep sending your positive thoughts my way, my friends.

Big sigh of relief that my week of interviews is over. I don’t interview well. It’s like test anxiety or something. I am a great employee though, and I fervently hope that both companies I had second interviews with this week liked me.

I feel my second interview with ‘Company B’ went well today. In a perfect world I would hear back from both companies on the same day and they would both tell me they want me. That would be a huge boost for me. Plus, it’s nice to have options. I think I know which direction I’m leaning. Think positive thoughts for me, please.

It’s been a good day. My second interview went well, I feel. And yesterday another company asked me to come in for a first interview today. That went well. I have a second interview for tomorrow. Wish me luck! Having options is good!

I got a second interview! Wish me luck!

I had an interview today, set up through my temp agency. I think it went pretty well. They had me do a lot of assessments. The agency says I should know whether or not I get a second interview within the week. Wish me luck.

I would tell you the name of the company but at this stage of the game I think that would be premature. I think I can tell you that it’s a rather large, well-known, and respected printing company which is setting up a new customer service call center. They are in need of people like me, and I hope they see I am the person for the job.

PS Don’t forget to pray for my Mom.  🙂

So earlier this week, my ceiling sprang a leak when the apartment upstairs had an unfortunate incident with a water heater. Today my brand new cell phone (my only phone) went for a swim. Water is definitely a problem for me this week, so I think it might be a good idea for me to start building an ark.

I really have to tell you these stories. They’re epic and you can read them after the jump.

So, I’ve been having a rough time of it lately, being unemployed and all. Old Man Bobby discovered that we have a Sprinkles in the Valley and decided that’s what we would do Date Night Tuesday. Yeah, he occasionally has these moments of sweetness and brilliance.

My apartment had different ideas. It’s no my apartment’s fault really. The apartment upstairs started it. Their water heater broke and flooded the place. Trust me, the trickle down effect isn’t fun. A few hours after their fiasco, I started hearing an unpleasant drip, drip, drip, and suddenly I had my own fiasco. A little heads up from the apartment complex would have been nice, but that might be a whole other post. The bottom line of this post is that Sprinkles has eluded me. Black and White, Dark Chocolate, and Chai Latte…one day you will be mine.
