Up until now I have been kind of tiptoeing around the fact that I am trying to find a new job. The one I have now is soul-crushing and toxic and oh my god! it bores me to tears. I've worked there as long as I have because I pass my insecurity off as laziness and apathy. I tell myself that it's easier to work where I do than it is to job search and change everything. But really? I never finished college. And job hunting without a degree makes you feel like a leper. Even though I honestly have my shit together, work wise. You should totally hire me.

Anyway. There's this job that I first interviewed for back in March. I never heard back. But then a few weeks ago, they called me to tell me that they had hired someone else for that position but that now they had another opening for a similar position. I interviewed for that one and I thought it went well. He said he would be traveling a lot over the next few days but that he would be making his decision by the next week. So when that week came and went, I assumed that again, I hadn't gotten the job. Then a few days later, I received an email from him asking me when I could start, if I were hired. And then another week went by. Nothing. And then yesterday he sent me another email to ask when I would be available for a phone conversation. He never called me, but later in the day he did send me an application form so they could call my references. And again, I am waiting to hear back. Or not.

(Dude really needs to hire me because he is in obvious, desperate need of an assistant.)

All of this is really just an especially long winded excuse for why I haven't been blogging lately. It's distracting the fuck out of me.


  1. I was just talking to someone else this morning who confirms what I think, you don't call references until you're ready to hire someone. USUALLY that is.

  2. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. This guy sounds totally unorganized. I agree with Eric, if he's gotten to the point of calling references, then he thinks you're the one.

    It's the same as when I guy takes you home to meet Mom. We don't normally go through the trouble of awkward social interactions unless it involves something important. Like sports, sex, or alcohol. So he must be serious.

  3. I don't know why but I just envisioned you working for Paul Westerberg. Man without ties.
    Anyway, if you end up cavorting with rock stars that would be a plus but I hope you get this.
    FIngers crossed


Here's where you put your two cents.
