EMPLOYED!

So, yeah...I got a job.

Woot.

Monday begins my journey in to the world of the Temp Worker.

Pros: 1) It's work 2) It's money in the bank 3) It's temporary. Very positive "pro" if I hate it, right?

Cons: 1) Pay isn't so great 2) The commute is a bit long 3) I'll be doing mundane clerical work, and not something fun and/or exciting 4) it's a short assignment so it's not one of those "if they like you, they will hire you" deals.

I'm not so nervous about the job itself, but rather either being seriously late on my first day or not being able to find the place (it's in Golden Valley and I've never been there and I have to take a bus and I don't know what stop to get off of and I'm sure no one will help me not even the bus driver even though that's his job and so that's why I'm a paraniod mess right nowACK!). I wasn't interviewed or anything, either. The temp agency called me yesterday to see if I wanted it. Seeing as I have $97 left in my bank account, I said "HELL YES!"

So, yeah. Wish me luck.

Congrats on the new job. Mind if I ask what happened to the old job?

BW-
I left the old job with promises of a new, better job that didn't pull through. I put all my eggs in one basket when I should have thought things through more.

But with that said, the old job wasn't doing it for me, with it's just-barely-over minimum wage and it's lousy hours. So it wasn't that big of a deal to leave.

Good luck, HB - Golden valley is just west and north of Mpls - not far.

Hope your back and leg are feeling better - sorry for not commenting more but I have been keeping up with your blog.

It will be good to get paid.
