This is going to be another short one, I’m afraid. We haven’t made a lot of progress in the chapters and there’s not much going on to tell you about.
Chapter progress has slowed down- and I only have one completed chapter after the posting in about eight hours- because my free time has been going to finding a new job. I’ve worked at my current one for almost five years now- thought I did take a break from it for about a year to try something else- and I think it’s time I moved on.
I won’t start ranting about the job itself or my coworkers- because if I did I’d be typing this until my next shift starts- but I will say that there are a lot less stressful opportunities around and most of them offer the same pay- or more- for less hours a week.
Extra time for writing? Possibly a bigger paycheck? Less stress?
I’m not really seeing any negatives, especially if I get to gain experience in a new field. I’ll continue doing customer service- though I would prefer production or administrative much more- if I have to, but I can at least switch it up a bit and explore other aspects of it.
No interviews so far but as my most recent applications were submitted over the weekend I figure I’ll call on Monday – which is now, technically- during more regular business hours to check up on them. With any luck, I’ll be somewhere new before the end of the month.
Or, you know, I’ll win the lottery and won’t have to worry about it. I’ll let you know if that happens.
Other than that, the only thing I can really mention is that I now wear glasses. It’s been interesting but apparently they suit me because some friends I spent time with on Thursday didn’t even mention them.
I’m only slightly bitter. Is this how people feel when you don’t notice a new haircut?
Well, that’s just about all I had. If there’s something in particular you’d be interested in hearing about in these updates let me know and if my current stream schedule is inconvenient for you guys let me know that too. I do have some flexibility- not much, but I’ll do what I can- so we’re not stuck at 0400 on Fridays and Saturdays [UTS].
Until I next have your attention,
