Thursday it is

So, we moved. As I said...somewhere...it's about eight miles south and $200 cheaper, as well as at least twice the size. My room is smaller, though. And the computer is still in pieces. And no DSL until August 5.

I'm at work now.

Speaking of that...I got a job offer. I need to call them, actually. @_@ I think I mentioned the job that doesn't pay much but would mean being the Head of Children's Services? Yeah, it's that one. I'd need to commute about 45-60 minutes (depending on traffic), but the place doesn't open until 10:00 so I think I'll be okay. It's not like I have to get up before 8:00. ^_^;

I need to call, actually, but I'm working. Hmm. I think I'll email the director and say that I'll call at 5:00 if I don't hear back via email by then. She may go home around then, but let's hope I catch her. If not, I'll leave a message and talk to her tomorrow during my lunch break, as I work again. ^_^;

I want to go home and unpack. Sigh. Only a couple more hours, though!

So I just moved, right? And then got a job offer in a place about 55 miles away, yes?

On a whim I checked the employment page.

The city I just moved to just posted for a full-time youth position.


I sent an email to the first place saying I thought I'd accept the position already (with some questions). The first place is a bit of commute. The second place is FOUR MILES AWAY. The first place has better health insurance. The second place pays more. The first place has a better title (Head of Children's Services vs. Librarian II) and will provide better experience and is, y'know, guaranteed to give me the damn job in the first place. The second place won't close the apps until August 12 so I wouldn't even get know until nearly the end of the month, and I may not get it at all because they had a position earlier this year I applied for (same level) and they didn't even interview me.

Which actually probably solves it right there. They didn't interview me last time at all, and all that's changed is I have SOME subbing experience. Well, that and I think the other one was adult services and this is youth, which MIGHT make a difference.

Still, I wish I'd seen this earlier (they posted it Jul 22) so I could have applied.
