Transitioning still

Sorry, it's been a while since I posted.

I'm still in the process of looking for a different job. I really would like to be able to get to school at a decent time, and still have a good deal of time with my wife. I also want to write. So pray the I find the right job.

Along with working on my book over the summer, I plan on working on some short stories to be submitted to magazines so that I can get my name out there (maybe make some extra cash for tuition or something).

I've been running a Serenity based RPG on sunday nights, but that's going to be put on hold once D&D fourth edition gets released. I don't know if we'll rotate games, but I'm definitely looking forward to playing again, rather than running a game. I want to create an awesome character :)

My ears are ringing

It's because I'm stressed! Chaos has reigned all day at work, so far, and I'm ready to walk out. Too much inconsistency, and it seems as though the people who want something done about it aren't willing to put in the effort. Here's the problem with that, when I make suggestions, I'm ignored by the higher ups. But because I'm at the bottom of the totem pole, it seems as though I am the final scapegoat. When I've tried to fix problems, nobody pays attention or follows my advice, and things get worse, when I stand aside and just let things happen, I get in trouble for not contributing to the solution.

So all ya'll can figure out your own problems, and if you have a problem with that, fire me! As soon as I find another job, I'm outta here.

The job...

I didn't get it. The woman who would have been my boss didn't feel right asking me to leave my current job without a full two weeks' notice. She said she's going to keep my application on file, and if the person she hired doesn't work out, she might hire me. A longshot, right? So, back to looking for a job that will let me write more.

I interviewed for that job yesterday, and I think it went really well. I was supposed to hear back by two this afternoon, and it's almost five now. I want to know either way NOW!! I'm not impatient or anything :P Anyway, as soon as I get an answer, I'll post something. This would be the perfect job for me because it would give me time for school, writing, and a lot more time with Emily this summer when she's not working.

What's this now?

Wednesday, roughly 8 pm: Reviewed resume and sent it to a coffee shop that posted a job opening that day.

Thursday, roughly 10 am: Received a response to my resume with an application.

Friday (today) 8:24 am: Faxed completed application to coffee shop.
12:30 pm: Received confirmation of time and location of interview.....Monday at 6 pm.

I could be working at a coffee shop in a couple of weeks.... THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!

The hours would work around school, and I would get up at the same time as my wife, and I would have most of the afternoon to work on my writing! Let's see how the interview goes, though.
