Another week without a job

I had an interview at a video store last week and I haven't gotten a phone call back. My sister says that they have hired two people. They were only going to hire a couple of people anyway so it doesn't look like I got the job. I don't have any experience in a video store and they had a lot of applications so they probably took people with experience. That sucks though. I thought my sister had sent out my application so that I can get my nurse aide certification here last week but she didn't so I had to pay for it to be sent off myself. I would have paid last week if she had said something. It's going to take at least a week until I can get the paper back with a temporary license so I can work. There is a nursing home right down from where my sister lives so I will be able to get a job there the same day I walk up in there with that piece of paper. They need nurse aides like crazy and I'm sure I'll be able to get third shift. That's good, because I don't want to work first or second shift. First shift, definately not. I would be willing to work second if I had to. Third shift nurse aides in a nursing home don't do shit. Just check the bed wetters throught the night and get up a few people in the morning.

I got another phone. Well, my mom gave me her cell phone. She hadn't been paying on it so I decided to take it over. It's with altel and each month only buys you 30 days of service. I think it's still a better deal than that tracfone. That thing's a piece of shit. I've dumped 40 bucks into it with nothing to show for it. Had I known what crap it was, I would have done this last month. I would have come out a damn sight cheaper. My mom wants a house phone. I'm going to give her my tracfone too so that she can have that for when she's away from the house (which isn't all that often).

I am so broke that its not even funny. I won't have any cash until I get a job. My aunt sent me some money to do a few things. I had to give my sister 50 bucks for her water bill out of what she sent. I wasn't too happy about it because now I can't pay on one of my accounts for my web store. I have one time for them to not be able to make that charge and it will be this month. I need to go to my bank here anyhow to see what the fuck is going on. I forgot my password. I'm guessing that's what's wrong. I had changed it when I checked the account online a couple of weeks ago and I can't figure out what the password could be. I will have to go down to the bank and ask them to reset it or see if something else is going on. I know I had like 2 bucks left in the account but they don't have any fees and what not for a checking account. You just can't have a zero balance or the account will automatically close itself out by midnight. I think that's a bunch of shit but oh well. I will have to take care of that check I wrote to catch a plane down here too. That's probably going to be around 800 bucks to get rid of it. Nothing to be done about that though. I was seriously unwilling to leave without my damn cat.

I'm going to be starting school here in June. Classes start June 5th. I have already been approved for financial aide so that's good. I'm going to have to use some of that money to straighten out some shit in Georgia before it's too late and I'd end up having to skip a quarter before I could do anything else. It is my hope to be able to get a computer with some of the money too. It might not be a new one, but anything useable should be fine. My sister says that the guy she knows that refurbishes computers would let me make partial payments instead of the whole 250 at once. That's good. If I have it all, I may just pay the entire thing though. I will need some extra shit too. I think I want to get a 250 gig hd and external enclosure. I will need to get at least two external enclosures. One for the new hd I plan to get and another to transfer information from those two drives that don't have enclosures. They are just 20 and a 40 gig drives so it won't be too bad. I hope this guy will have a dvd burner available. It hink they only cost like 30 bucks though so it won't be that big of a deal. If I was thinking, I would have at least brought the cd burner from my old computer. I could have squeezed it in my luggage somehow. A refurbished computer will definately be better than nothing. At least until I can make one myself.

Anyhow, that's all for now I suppose. Chris, if you happen to read this, send me a text message so I'll have your cell phone number. I know you gave it to me but I can't find that shit to save my life. I might post to your blog again. Not that you look at it all that often probably *sigh* >.>

The same bunch of nothing

I've been here in Kansas for what, almost a month now and I have STILL not found work. I've been putting in applications and shit but nothing's biting. I can't work as a nurse aide until I get my certification switched over. Well, it's not really being switched over. I have to take the fucking certification test here. If I don't pass it, I will have to take a nurse aide class here. I went to some video store here to have an interview. I don't even have the types of clothes they want you to wear. I came in wearing casual clothes and what not but I have like a couple of casual wear things that look decent. My entire wardrobe is jeans and t-shirts. I don't know if I'll get a job there or not. I don't really care where I work at. I just need some money. The sooner I get a job, the sooner I can get myself another computer.

That's all for now I guess. Chris needs to fucking text somebody. I haven't heard from her in a while. College can't be that hard and time-consuming for you and I should know... I use to be in college and I was going from 6a.m. to 10p.m. and had a part-time job in-between classes. IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE WORKING SO SEND ME A MESSAGE DAMNIT.
