theladysnarkydame: (special snowflake!)
 No word yet from any of my job prospects . . . For that last one, at least, that's not unexpected (THEY'RE not in a hurry, after all), but I expected better from some of them.  It's frustrating.

I've sent out a few more applications, buffed up my resume a little more -- there's not that much on it, really.  I've only had four actual jobs in my life, and only two in the last eight years (I stay where I'm comfortable!  Which is good in some ways, but doesn't put a lot of experience on a resume) and my degree is in English -- it's about as useful in a job hunt as. . . some not very useful thing.  If I had a car I'd have more options, but I'm pretty much stuck looking in the downtown area or along the bus lines (and by that I mean the main bus lines -- the ones out to the suburbs would be pretty complicated to manage, schedule wise.  Though I suppose it's something I may have to consider).   Luckily, there are A LOT of restaurants downtown and along the bus lines!  

I don't actually want to go back to working at a restaurant, but I've always kept the possibility open -- it can be good money, and there are always restaurants hiring somewhere, but the hours and the stress and the irritations are daunting, especially after spending years at a job where I don't have to wear an apron, and where I can sit down every once in a while.

Oh well, right?  

In the meantime, I've been playing lots of video games, and trying to get better at knitting.  It'd be pretty relaxing if I didn't have bills to pay . . .
theladysnarkydame: (Good Luck!)
 So, for reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I'm looking for a new job.  Which.  Ahahaha.  Ha.  (I really liked my job.  I haven't had to job hunt in more than five years, and I'm pretty out of practice?  Also, resumes are ????)  My savings are non existant (I was not expecting to have to find a new job . . .) but they did pay out my remaining vacation time, so I can pay rent for June.  The OTHER bills . . . . well, lets just say I better find a new job really soon.  Really.  Soon.

The Boy is the best Boy, and he'll help out as much as he can.  But I can't mooch of him for too long -- it wouldn't be fair, and also not feasible. Luckily, Top Ramen packets were on sale at the grocery store!

In the meantime, between application sending and want ads searching, I'm posting some stuff on craigslist, and I'll be bringing a few bags of old books to Half-Price Books tomorrow (they won't bring much, but hey, grocery money!)  

Shipping seems like a hassle, so I'm just posting my stuff locally for now -- if no one bites on craigslist I'll look into putting the manga, at least, up on eBay, since that seems like a better place for it, really. 

In the meantime, would any of you fine folk be in the market for an ereader?  I could ship these pretty painlessly, at least within the states.

I've got a NOOK Tablet (one of the older ones, but it's in great shape) with 5 different cases, a screen protector, and its charger that I've posted for 40 dollars.  And I put up my NOOK Simple Touch as well -- no charger for this one, but they're not hard to get hold of -- for $20.  If you want one?  Let me know.  We can arrange shipping, depending on what that turns out to run.

Also, if anyone would be interested in some second hand manga, I can tell you what I'm trying to sell -- it's a mixed bag, with a few complete series, and a lot of incomplete sets and first volumes.

Anyway, I hope everything is going well for you!  And wish me luck, would you?  I could use some.
