Since word has gotten out about the place closing, my work has been super busy. I made over $100 more last night than I made the same night last week. It’s bittersweet. It’s great that people are coming in and we’re making money, but where were all these people when we needed them, before the decision was made to close down?
So I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to find a new job. Bills don’t wait for new employment.
After the craziness of work last night, I actually had a job interview at one of the local pizza places. Hopefully I cleaned up well enough in that ten minutes between places to make a good impression. Although on a side note, you probably shouldn’t start an interview out with “I swear I normally look more attractive than this” when the interviewers are both women. At least I got some chuckles, but I got some weird looks as well. Could go either way (the opening, not the women.)
So here’s hoping for a new job within the next week!
I’ve also gotten back to wedding plans for the first time since finding out I was losing my job. It made it hard to be excited about the wedding when I had no idea if I was going to be able to buy groceries next month, but this first interview has given me a little burst of much-needed hope.
I’m taking today to work on my resume and fill out some applications online, so here’s hoping for some more good things coming up. Wish me luck!
