I have a temp job that fulfills almost all the requirements I was looking for last week - consistent schedule, paid breaks, near where I live, reasonable pay, and a place to sit, if I want to. It's warehouse work, and I'm pretty good at it.

But more importantly, I got an interview for that job I really fucking wanted. The one over here, the one I thought I was unqualified for. I requested to be the first interview of the day, and they have about 10 other people they're considering for the job.

I don't own a jacket. I don't own a white shirt - though I think I may make one tonight after work. I'm really nervous, but I feel good about the possibility of working a job that I both like and think is important.


Also, the album is unfortunately not coming out on the 15th. Job hunting has been an all-consuming affair. Sometime this month, though.

EDIT: Interview went well! They're doing a second set of interviews next week, should be hearing back this weekend about whether they want me to come in again.

I always give the same advice to people about to interview. Be passionate about what you've done and what you plan to do. No hiring manager has ever left an interview saying "that candidate just seemed too passionate." -within reason of course. No orgasms at the table.

Good luck pal! Looking forward to the album too.

Best of luck!

That's fantastic news! I love the sentiment of "I don't have a white shirt, so I guess I'll make one later."

depends on the job, this may be bad advice, but it would be a solid conversation piece if you wear one of your shirts under a jacket. or something along those lines
