If you have come to see a twenty-something nobody spiral into a Deep Dark Depression, you have come to the right place. The last job I wrote about, the closest job I've gotten to in fourteen months of looking, went to "an old family friend." I can't decide if her admitting that makes me feel better because, hey, at least I didn't just plain suck (probably), or worse because... ugh. Really? Ugh. But at least I now know I "seem like a very capable and warm-hearted woman"!

I'll show you "warm-hearted." Show you it right in the face.

So, I am now right back to where I was on 13 June 2009. Nowhere. Except now I have discovered Bertolli Skillet Meals for Two, which are only $6.50 and take ten minutes to cook, so now I have more time and money on my hands. And sodium.

Oh, and I have a new basket for my bike.

That's right, the basket has a handle because it clips off for maximum glory.
So... I think I'm stumped. There's only so much craigslist one person can stand!

Did you try the temp agency? =O

Damn, I'm sorry. But also, on top of the agency, have you looked into some charity work? I'm sure there are some worthwhile organizations nearby which would love some part-time help, it may not take much time, and it does look good on a resume. At Gettysburg I did some tutoring at a local afterschool program for elementary-aged kids, and that would be something appropriate for you. On top of that, it could also be rewarding.

Yes, I applied at the temp agency. Waiting on them.

Yes, I looked into charity work. Haven't found anything exciting yet, but it's still on the table.

I just stumbled on here from 20sb and I'm happy that I did.

I'm so sorry to hear that the job didn't come through though. Hopefully, things will start to look up soon. Good luck!

Thanks, kat! Today I will make use of my bike basket and it will be a wonderful day.
