So this week has really went well for me in the job department. I go in spurts. I'll hear nothing for a while, then bamf, everything at once. I don't mind the wait...hurry up...and wait stuff, but I would like it if something real falls out of the mix.

I am on p3? of the job process for a 911 operator/dispatcher. This is the one that I've spent the most time with and am fairly hopeful about. The fact that they keep speeding me along in the process doesn't hurt at all for my hopeful factor. Good times, this government stuff. I get to go in for a psych eval! This job, unless they change their tune, even if I got it, I wouldn't start till end of July at the earliest, so I'm booking through with other stuff in the meantime.

I had a prelim interview at a temp place for a network admin job. I hope to hear back from them next week. It too is a government job, actually. :) I am somewhat thinking that if I get the above job, depending on hours, I could still work this one at the same time. It might be brutal for a while, but I could really use the money. But it is a 'temp' job and not necessarily full time, so. Either way, keeping this going until I know about the above. I also found out something weird, apparently a lot of companies out here will only work you for 910 hours as a temp, then cycle you out till 910 hours falls off and then rehire (if they intend to do so). For those playing at home, 910 hours works out to be almost 23 weeks (at 40 hours a week), or six months. :P Weird system.

I also got asked to set up a phone interview to talk about my qualifications for a Systems Analyst. (helpdesk *cough*) That would send me back to Indiana if I had to do a real interview, but again...options are good. And staying in Indiana has some benefits...

But I really do want to come out here, if I can manage it. I love the area. Even if I ended up back in Indiana, I will come back for vacation or something. I should have done this sooner!

*prod Tina* :) She's been very kind about me temporarily living here. I don't know how I managed to get on her good side, but I am grateful she's my friend. =) I will repay her back somehow or another! She's put up with me gibbering in glee about stuff I'm sure she takes for granted (parks, pretty city stuff, lakes/oceans), she's taken me to a MLB (Mariner's) baseball game (which I enjoyed, oddly enough. Much more fun at the stadium than TV), she helps me find my way home when I go randomly out and then get myself someplace and I don't know how to get back, she appreciates my cooking, she lets me see her family, and in general has been a bestest host. She puts up with me as we discuss things like doctors and how to raise children, and where does the change jar go?!, and all sorts of opinionated topics. I'm sure she didn't sign up for that when she thought I'd show up! But she hasn't kicked me out yet!

Odd site note: some of the vistas out here are nice. I really liked wandering in Seattle the brief times I've done it, even if I don't like being lost much. :) Some of the bus rides are beautiful. Bellvue is a really nice place, for example. Not only do I get to see some nice city stuff, but I see residential, parks, shopping areas (there's a neat shopping street in Renton that I want to prod at, and I've been told there's a bigger awesome version with more stuff in Seattle like a farmer's market, etc)...I think I like a well run bus transit system as much as I like airport stuff for similar reasons.

Anyways, this is all a different sort of stress, but I much prefer this stress to the other. By other I mean running out of money, feeling like I'm taking other people with me, and in general watching my life fall apart. Motion of any sort feels very good. Especially when it is positive motion.

Right now I'm listening to music and crap I'm finding on YouTube while I fill out the paperwork for the 911 that they sent me. Yay forms. Tina is out with her grandchildren and her friend (don't know if daughter et. al. came along) to see the movie Up. I may go see a later showing of it when it's not peopled by screaming children. The movie looks cute. =0

Congrats on the job stuff, sir! I look forward to hearing whether or not you get it.

Re: Up - I heard today that it was awesome and cute, and if I can rationalize the $10ish bucks to go see it, I wanna check it out :)

not hard to figure out. when you love someone, you don't care about the opinionated stuff or the fact that our opinions often differ wildly. I have no intention of throwing you out, I just wish I could find a way to get you home and back for a few days between interviews/calls. I think having Lisa with you for even a couple of days would make things look less bleak and feel less stressed.

On the same token sweets, I'm surprised you haven't ran screaming to someone else's, or anyone else's, place to stay rather than live with me :)

I wanna go!

Although there are lots of kids I could take with me, I'd much rather go see Up without all the screaming kids, too. It looks like Happy Times and I could use me some Happy Times.
