Well, that was inevitable...

I have a LiveJournal.  I bought a permanent account in the first wave of those sales well over a decade ago.  It was so long ago, I was still in California and hadn't yet gotten my Bachelors Degree.

Yes, it is still there.  But it's empty.  And that is how it will stay until and unless it stops being run by the Russian government.  See, I don't trust the FSB not to try to use the content against me.

The content  has been migrated over to Dreamwidth, though.

Anyone have good wishes for me to get a new job? (yes, that again)  I will take any you can spare.

As for the rest, well, back to editing novels that need the patchup treatment.

Sending out good thoughts

I am thankful for my friends, and for the experience I have gained in the last few years.

Square One

I am temping again, and making very little money-wise.

I want to be back in engineering and keep applying to various positions that come available.

The More Things Change...

Well, I ended up moving for the job.

And last Monday, I was told that I was being laid off due to lack of work.  The company lost the contract that I had moved to help them with.  So I qualify for unemployment.

So... I am sitting in WDM Public Library trying to write through the unemployment after a morning of job searching, sewing, and laundry.

And after finishing Barbara Bradley Hagerty's book "Life Reimagined" which, while there is a tinge of Christianity - expected since that is her faith - is still a good book to use as a bit of advice on how to deal with middle age, which is what I am coming up on.

I will call agencies tomorrow morning to see if there is anything clerical for me.

We will see.

Well... here goes nothing...

I have at least a temporary assignment.

I might have a permanent job, but that involves me moving.

Still nothing.

Saint Jude, please help me!

And Still, it continues...

I had an interview on June 29.  I heard on July 3 from a friend that they had checked at least her as a reference on July 2nd.  I have heard nothing since then, but I seem to remember the hiring manager was going on vacation for at least a week.  It has now been 2 weeks since I interviewed.  I was told mid-July was when I would know.

The "2 hiring managers" from my previous post were merged into 1 and I interviewed at the location yesterday, where the hiring manager was going to be hiring 2 people out of the last 4.  I think it went well, and I asked questions from the list of "followup" questions I'd found.  I was told at least 2 weeks to know for certain from them.

I want a job.  I want either of the 3 positions I interviewed for and I want to be able to start damn soon.

Make it happen!
