I wish you good luck with finding a different job!
Filled out a bunch of new job applications today in my continued attempts to find something even CLOSE to my field.
Having to sit through orientation at my new job today prompted my renewed vigor to continue job hunting. Nothing quite like sitting through the sexual harassment session, which had about 10 minutes of one of the new male cage cashiers (I work in a casino) wondering why his female coworkers say that certain comments don’t bother them anymore and why they don’t report it. He couldn’t wrap his head around the idea that women are just used to it, that complaining will never help, because for every 1 regular customer that gets ‘talked to’ there is 10 new customers that will behave the same way.
If at any time Assassin’s Creed is telling me to avoid detection, you can bet I’ll be replaying that section 10-15 times.
Actually got up on time and ready to go for my first day at my new job. Apparently getting up at 6:30am is easy when you go to bed at 10:30…
My crowning achievement of the day was managing to paint my nails during the cutscenes of AC: Brotherhood, because I couldn’t decide which I wanted to do. And they look amazing, despite playing while they dried.
I think I’ve decided to start taking some chances with my future.
I’m applying for a full-time job at the summer camp I fell in love with when I was 16.
I’m applying for a job to spend 3 months at a time in Alaska monitoring fish take by vessels.
I going to start trying to not let things hold me back. I spend a lot of time letting things define my choices that maybe shouldn’t. If I want a job in my field, I am going to need to grab life by the horns and apply for the jobs that interest me, no matter where I am. And figure out everything else as I go along.
My grandma’s doing fine from her surgery, but they’re keeping her on the ventilator over night and possibly longer. I mean, the woman’s 80 and just had open heart surgery so it’s perfectly understandable that she needs it longer than they predicted. But they say she’s going to be fine which is fantastic. Hopefully I’ll get to see her tomorrow, as that was half of the point of me coming down here, but if I don’t it’ll be fine.
