It Comes and Goes in Waves

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

No, not the awesome sauce song by Greg Laswell. I go through points where I have no job leads... then like 2 or 3 call me at the same time and then I'm fluster - *obscene language* for a few weeks with what to do and it turns out that I get none of them anyway.

Today I signed tax papers for a position in a mall. Then they said they'd call me in sometime next week (I guess they are running a background check) to start. I get back home and I get a phone call for a Beverage packaging job in another city. They wanted to set up an interview and honestly... now that I have a job as holiday help, I feel the mall job will want me to start on the same day as my interview... I don't even know my schedule yet. I told them I could work any hours 1. to make myself more accessible, and 2. when I applied... I honestly had nothing going on. Things wait to happen until I commit myself to something more boring.

I know most of you are wondering... "why not just say that you can't work Monday if asked?" One reason is that I know as Christmas help I can be fired if I can't work. I need the money to be able to move in the first place! And I have nothing else to do so I'm just sitting here worrying about what's gonna happen. If I get offered the job I'll have to leave the job I just got offered, and probably right after training. The job I'm interviewing at thought I still lived in my college city because somehow my website still had the city listed (even though I hid location details) so when I said I'd need two weeks notice upon offer to start he seemed rather hesitant (what's with these people? They're too impatient!!!!!)

So a time in my life that's supposed to be care free and well has found a way to make me feel miserable. :-( I just feel I'm gonna get screwed over again and out of both positions given my luck. I don't even feel right rescheduling the interview because that can also look bad.

    *hugs* With work, just know that the Lord goes before you in all that you do. So apply, commit, think things through, but when something falls through, or looks promising, know that you are cared for and loved and looked out for and if you stay in his plan it will always work out for the best. Be encouraged brother!

    Awe, Hal, I'm sorry! When it rains, it pours! I don't have any fantastic advise to give you (although I wish I did!), but I will keep you in my prayers that everything turns out well for you! It is SO hard (that I completely understand... my family of 4 lived off of my husband's unemployment check for 2.5 stinkin' years!!), but God's plan always seems to work out in the end! Every time that we thought a door was being closed on my hubby, it turned out to actually be a path towards a better opportunity, and I sincerely hope the same is true for you!!
