I had another interview today. Somewhere else. Somewhere totally fucking awesome. Somewhere I have been wanting to work for a very long time. Somewhere where the pay is shit, the hours are long, and the abuse is high, but I want to work there anyway. The interview was very last minute. I got a call at noon and went in at 4. They are interviewing for two positions, so I met with the two people I might be working for, but if I get any job at all, I could end up with either as my boss. I liked both, though I liked the second one more, just because she seemed more laid back and conversational. The first guy was nice and seemed like he'd be a great boss, too, but this is all a personality thing, and I feel like I nailed that part with the second one more than the first.

Dammit I want this job.

The good: I had an interview today. I think it went well. It's not for something exactly in the field I want to be in, but it's at least in a place where there is mobility to a field I want to be in. And it is temp-to-perm, so hopefully I would soon have BENEFITS! INSURANCE! GAH!

The bad: If I do get a new job, I'm going to have to spend a buttload of money on a new wardrobe. My current office has an extremely lax dress code, and I need a ton of new clothes for a real job.

The ugly: Ugh. My stupid bitch sister's stupid bitch wedding is 15 days sooner than I thought it was. I have no idea how I counted so wrong. Ugh. I HOPE I will fit the dress in only 41 days, and considering I've gotten my waist to the right size in only 23, I think I can get my chest there in nearly double that, but ugh. I really wanted it to still be 56 days away. 

In more good, Parks & Recreation is coming back! HUZZAH! And NBC gave it the cushy post-Office spot! IT WILL LIVE TO SEE ANOTHER SEASON!!!!!!!

Also good: Boardwalk Empire. My god I love this show. I'm even starting to be interested in the politics and such. And I think we're about to find out who Jimmy's father is! (I have my suspicions, but I want to know for sure.)

Random: I was looking at my driver's license today, and it just emphasized how long my hair is right now. My driver's license pic is from a year ago, and my hair is just brushing my shoulders. It is currently halfway down my back. I need a cut, but I'll probably wait until after the wedding. That way there's lots of hair to work with for an up-do.

So, my sister is getting married in 79 days. That's the day after Christmas for those who don't want to do the math. In NYC. Ugh. I hate that bitch.

Anyway, I have this gorgeous dress (my profile pic on Facebook) that was custom made for a friend's wedding. It was ridiculously expensive, but I didn't have to pay for it. And I love this dress. Problem is, it was made when I was at my skinniest post-Celiac diagnosis weight. I tried it on a couple of days ago and it doesn't fit anymore. I'm guessing that to be safe, I need to lose 20 lbs. So I am doing the 30 day shred. I have time to fit it in twice if I do it everyday. I'm on day 3 and I am in so much pain. I know it will get better as I continue to do it, but still. Kill me now. I can barely walk. Those goddamn, motherfucking lunges are what did it. My calves would like to just detach and leave, thank you very much.

So that's what I'm up to right now. Still waiting to hear about second interview for awesome job. The guy was out of town this week as well, so I was told I would hear by the end of this week, so hopefully today. They do still want to see me, so that's good. And I'm going to visit USC next week. And then there's still my Halloween costume to get. So much stuff to do.

  • Had a kickass interview, and I'm supposed to have a second next week, though they haven't scheduled it yet...
  • Went to a kickass U of M MBA info session where I fell even more in love with the idea of going
  • Won a kickass bar trivia with my friends for a grand prize of $75 gift certificate, which just covered our tab
  • Fantasized about what sort of kickass things I could do with an extra $800 a month (if I get the job)
I guess that's it. But it's been a pretty good week, though work has been extra boring. Fingers crossed about the job, because I think I need a change of scenary.

U of M

 So, I got my official score report for the GMAT after only 6 days, so it's plenty of time for me to apply first round for U of M. Of course, applications are due tomorrow, so that plenty of time doesn't really apply to me. Hmm. But my essays are 50% ish written and off to my mother to try to flesh out. So nice to have a mother to do that for me. :)

In other news, I have an interview on Tuesday. After months of nothing happening, this is my second interview this month. Didn't get the last one, but still. An interview is better than nothing. If I do happen to get the job, it's a year and a half commitment (at much better pay than my current salary), so if I get into either U of M or USC, I will probably defer. If I get the job, I won't necessarily need to go to school to do what I want to do, but after working there for a while I may decide that I want to put myself into a ridiculous amount of debt anyway. Maybe. 

But that's getting way ahead of myself. Chances are I will not get the job. I just have to hold out hope that I get into school, which seems like a better chance to me.

Maybe I'm just setting myself up for major disappointment, but I think I'm going to get an offer for the LA internship in a couple of days. I think.
