a brighter side.
Well, I’ve so far lost a total of 15 pounds since I started hitting the gym in May. I’ve got about 5 more pounds to go, but I’m satisfied with how things are going. My arms and legs are more toned, I’m getting a bit better at running, and I look slimmer, to be sure. So maybe I’m doing it because of cosplay prospects/possible alien invasion, but looking better and being in better health is always great too.
I’m not more energetic due to apparent hypersomnia/narcolepsy but I’ll take what I can get
I got a third call for an interview, this time at a temp agency. This one I’ll go to because it’s a short walk away from a train stop, but like with all temp agencies, I’m kind of wary. Still, whatever, at least I can hustle. Only problem is that my good pants don’t fit because of the weight I lost, so I had to fix them.
As usual, still studying about two hours a day for the LSAT, four and a half hours if I take a timed prep test. This time next week or week after, however, I’m going to have to up it to three to four hours (five to six with prep test), taking weekends off for either light review or sleeping (or a life). That said, since tomorrow and Saturday will probably prove to be too busy for me, I’m going to set aside Sunday to a. start rough drafting my personal statement(s) for law school; and b. draft contracts for my freelancing PR consulting.
Oh, gotta remember, next week or week after I need to send off my transcripts to LSAC, both high school and college (damn high school and my college classes in senior year). Also, need to send the recommendation letters that’ve been written for me. I’ve had them for about a year or half a year and I haven’t bothered yet. Bad me. I hope that doesn’t count against me, they were difficult to procure.
Then, tomorrow I need to get up at the crack of dawn to go to the gym, then meet with my dad, then go to interview, then possibly pick up my brother (?), then study (and take prep test timed). If I have time in between my dad and the interview, also need to go reschedule my doctor appointment
and beg for insulin samples. Saturday, need to get up for the gym, then either go on a date with Cosmo or go to a friend’s birthday party and restrain myself from strangling John. Sunday, writing. Monday, go get tax return copy since my apartment swallowed mine whole, go to gym, fill out FAFSA, study + prep test.
Oh, and in a fit of crazy, my dad suddenly found an apartment uptown Santurce that’s bigger and cheaper. I don’t understand him at all. But whatever, I’m sure we’re going to see it tomorrow since that’s what he said on the phone.
I want to sleep the weekend off.
So I called them, the trusteeship. Not only did I mispronounce the person’s last name, I felt like a stalker because she got my message and told me that they were still in the process of reviewing candidates.
Goddammit. She was the one which said they’d call me Friday or Monday ._.
THEY HAVEN’T CALLED ME.
So I called them. No answer. Left a message.
I’m calling again tomorrow.
Is it wrong for me to be like this? I don’t mean to be a stalker, but I can’t see how I wouldn’t pass a precualification for an internship of all things.
It’s just so frustrating to be turned away again. I guess I shouldn’t get my hopes up either, but it’s not so much that as it is me believing that I am good enough. =|
I was right. I didn’t get the job because of some bullshit with Juvempleo. So, evaluating my stuff alone without that crap, I don’t qualify. They congratulated me for my qualifications though.
What doesn’t qualify then? My GPA? My degree? My giant paperweight with four years of work?
so the interview
Well, after primping myself for an hour (flat ironing the hair, makeup, the works), I set off for the place by bus (since there’s usually no parking in the area). I was a bit early, by about fifteen minutes, but found my way in, and was greeted at the door.
The woman who I’d spoken to on the phone greeted me, and she, alongside the firm’s president, interviewed me. They asked me about my educational background, about my work experiences, about my internship, my skills. We made bits of small talk.
I think it went okay. I don’t know, however, if I’m going to get anything. Apparently, there was some confusion, and they thought I was going there under some government program called Juvempleo, which I just heard about for the first time today. And I made it explicitly clear that I was looking for a position, not really an internship.
So I’m prepping myself mentally. They said they would give me a call tomorrow whether the news was good or bad, but I’ve prepared myself. I want the job, more than anything, but I don’t want to get my hopes up so high.
So I called the place twice this morning, leaving a
desperatecryandpleaforhelpinmy message to call me back. At around 1pm they finally did, after spending some time running with Rafiq and Cosmo and freaking out at them too.
Now it’s time TO FREAK OUT ABOUT THE INTERVIEW OH GOD WHAT WILL THEY ASK WHAT CAN I SAY
im really nervous.
THESE WERE THE GUYS THAT CALLED ME AND I DIDN’T HAVE MY PHONE I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’LL DO IF THEY DON’T PICK UP MONDAY OR IF THEY CHANGED THEIR MINDS
the universe sure knows how to balance its shit
Really awesome thing: Macbook Pro.
Sorta bad things: Not having phone and getting a call for an interview; missing calls from current job; and finding out I actually owe my old gym money and that I’ll have to sell the Xbox to get started on paying it off.
I guess things just balance themselves out. =/
Too tired to edit or write. I’ll see what I can do tomorrow.
Good night Tumblr.
ps - I got called up for an interview. It’s with a bank looking for customer service reps for phone calls. It sounds nearly perfect (fixed schedule, mostly no saturdays, no sundays, paid holidays)…but it’s part time. I’m going anyway, in the off-chance it’s a 30-hour part time, or it’s a $10-$12 part time (uh huh). You never know.
Meanwhile, I will be directing myself to the employment center of my university come Tuesday.
