Just Saying...


Posted: 16 Jan 2012 09:33 PM PST

I'm temping this week at a gaming company in the lower mainland. I didn't think it was actually possible to do less than my last job.  Seriously.

The pay is good, and hours suck and to sit there and stare at my computer screen and email people IF the phone decides to ring, is mind numbingly dull. However, the people, they're great!

It's only a week.

In other news.....
I dropped one of the employment agencies I was signed on with. I've been trying to make contact with the woman who is managing me as their client, since Jan 3rd!!

No return calls or emails. I sent off an unhappy email that I did not think they were working in my best interest etc. Her reply..... That she felt with my job skills, that I could prove to be unemployable and would probably have a difficult time finding suitable employment.

W.T.F!? Wow.

I forwarded this email to her boss, with more words expressing my disappointment with this particular agent.  I've received what seemed to be a sincere letter of apology and their plan of action to handle this agent. I still dropped them. There is nothing that can reverse that kind of sour taste.

But great. It's mid Jan and I'm still unemployed.  I can only lower my wage bracket so much before needing a roommate as opposed to getting ahead by having one.

I'm seriously surprised at the qualifications employers are asking for, for a dollar or two over minimum wage. Insanity I tell ya! Crazy.

Discouraged, is an understatement at this point. The what if's are becoming a reality. What if I don't find a job? What if I have to move? What if, what if, what if?

This would explain why with a week left (count 4 days left) on the Accutane, my face looks worse than we started this whole process.  Needless to say, I'm making an appointment with my Derm.  Maybe do another month at my own cost. :( An expense I really can't afford, but I don't want all this to be for nothing.

Let's see...what else?
The roommate and I are getting along for the moment. We're treading lightly, but at least we're talking to each other, no longer grunting defensive tones at each other.

I've been reading your blogs lately, though haven't commented on much.

What have you all been up too?
