Ready for some fun

Last Saturday I went to see a movie called Angel-A with a friend and we were both kind of puzzled by it. We did have fun going though. Tomorrow we are going to a concert downtown to see a few bands play. One band is called Dengue Fever and another one is a favorite of mine called Ozomatli. We are prepared to dance and are going to wear dancing shoes.

Today I am seeing an old friend I have known for 13 years. We are going to eat at a salad bar. She had wanted to see a movie; but I told her that I didn't want to see "Knocked Up".

I went to a job interview with a grocery store chain that delivers groceries on Wednesday. I was applying for shopper which means that I would be one of the people who pull items off the shelf to fill the order. I was so excited about it that I didn't sleep much Tuesday night. But then when I went the guy said that the stores that these postions work out of are very far for me. He offered a positon as a courtesy clerk at a store that wouldn't have been far from where I will be living soon. I decided not to take it because I really wasn't sure I would be good at it. What if I wasn't fast enough and it was plain stressfull? It pays minimum wage too. ($7.50 per hour) The other stinky part about it is that although the union isn't really working for courtesy clerks you would still be paying a nice chunk for union dues. I felt really down about this interview on Thursday because I felt hopeless about finding work that I feel confident doing. I keep searching like a rabid dog for job listings online and come up with nothing I have the qualifications for. Maybe I need to finish my B.A. after all. I need help from a career counselor to explore my options.
