For those of you who saw mention of my phone interview on the Bookface, I had it yesterday. I hate to jinx it by saying this, but it went swimmingly well. My interviewer had actually called me last week, trying to fill a lower level but critically required position filled. She decided, after talking to me for a bit and getting greater detail on my past work, that I was overqualified for the lower position and wanted to keep me in the running for this one. When you make an interviewer laugh and elicit responses to answers like "excellent, "perfect," and "awesome," I think you did well. So I have no doubt I'll get a second interview. Unfortunately, that won't be until the third week of July. :( I may have a part time gig doing litigation assistance for a local company, but Until I hear back from them, who knows...
A couple of days ago, I took my resume to an oil and gas transport company looking for admin help. I gave it to the nice lady who looked at it for about 15 seconds and asked "Do you have a CDL (Commercial Driver's License)? Would you be interested in that side of the business at all?" I answered with a simple "No," but what I really wanted to say was "Do I look like I've ever driven a truck? Does the resume that you have in your hand show any indication of that? Do your drivers usually come to you from Law firms? Then why are you asking? Seriously?" People... I swear sometimes...

I also got a friend request on the Bookface from someone who is planning my 20th anniversary high school reunion. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to go. Besides new logistical concerns (being 300 miles away and all), what it really comes down to is this: all the people I knew in high school that I wanted to keep in touch with, I saw about once every week to two weeks until about a month ago. While I can think of three people I wouldn't mind seeing, otherwise I couldn't give less of a damn about my high school graduating class. Not too sure how well it's going to go off anyway. It's in a month and they still don't have a venue nailed down.
This entire thing has been a big strain on both of us, Welsh Girl and I. I don't think we've been all that nice to one another lately. Here's to hoping that changes soon enough. The Despoina may also be beginning to wonder why we're spending so long with Mammy and Pop-Pop and not going back "home." We tell her but I think it's only now beginning to sink in that things are really different.
The local community colleges have SHIT for online classes! I actually thought about trying to get some online classes from ACC from here, but I can't justify having to drive 300 miles to take exams!
For now, I think, that is all.
