I got a job. Huzzah!
It's not the ideal job but it will pay the bills for the time being. And maybe, someday, I will be able to go back to Borders (Want to know what you can get me for my birthday? How about a Border's gift card. It has been 6 very long, sad months since I have bought a book and my heart is aching a little from it. I will also accept a tank of gas.) I don't work on Mondays or the weekends (Hello! Permanent 3 day weekend status!) so I will still have time to work on writing and crafts and other such things that I hope will eventually bring me buckets of money. Or at least enough money to pay the rent. Which, with Flo constantly raising the rent, would actually need to come in buckets.
I'll be working for a chiropractor who does things like adjusting the spinal chords of newborns who came through the birth canal wrong. You know what this means...really great stories for me to share with you. It's like we all win in this.
Here are a few things I have learned in my 5 1/2 months of unemployment:
1.) People are very generous and kind
2.) The library is a fascinating place to hang out
3.) The Daylight Hours are something I love and will miss greatly
4.) I can live on far less money than I originally thought. I don't know what I spent my money on when I was actually getting a paycheck (my guess is air and pixie dust) but apparently I can live without it.
5.) Matt Lauer is mind-numbingly annoying
There are a few other things but those are the nub and the gist. I'm off to buy a Wonder Woman lunch box now.
