OH HAI STEPHANIE

Remember that job you applied for 6 months ago and we never contacted you to tell you anything about the application or process?

Weeeeeeell, you’re on the list for a PT assistant job. Do you want to be interviewed?

(Well maybe if I didn’t flee the state for another job opportunity because you left me fucking HANGING)

A loser in all circles.

First Show

Down; Many more to go!!

It wasn’t bad. I had fun. Things got a little out of control, but that’s perfect. I can’t wait to do it again!

I was super nervous all day; still working on vocals and getting anxious. Buuuut I would have regretted it more if I didn’t do it. I did it! We did it all together! I wonder if anyone has pictures?

Everyone was super cool and supportive. Hopefully this means more shows in the future; living in Omaha right now and having this outlet is something I am so grateful for. Hurray!

Gentle let down; a big difference

After a gentle prodding email regarding the status of my application:

We haven’t made a final selection. At this time we are interviewing the 3 candidates that scored the highest.

However, I want to let you know there will be another position opening up soon.

Not so bad. At least it was a cushioned fall. I appreciate her tact.

But still. No new prospects on the horizon. That was the last active app. Let’s see how long it takes me to subject myself to all that rejection. I might wait til next year.

Or. Fuck it. Imma join the Peace Corps.

Shout out to Al Jazeera straight up showing a video of their reporters getting tear gassed during a live interview of the Ferguson police chief denying that they are tear gassing journalists.

Dear Stephanie: YOU SUCK. YOULL NEVER WORK IN THIS TOWN AGAIN

Your placement scores for Librarian I are as follows:

Rank: 9 out of 11

Score: 59.62%

I’m sorry, what? Run that by me again? Did a LIBRARIAN score these tests or did a fucking HR “find-a-word” machine?!

I’ve never scored below an 80% on anything in my life EVER. I finished grad school with a 3.85 GPA! Now for some city to tell me I’m third to DEAD LAST?! I want to see this test. I want to see their answer key. I busted my ass on those essays for three fucking weeks; using source citations, work I completed for my MLS, and references to dozens of library publications.

This is outrageous. Even more outrageous than when I got a 93% on an HR test and that still didn’t get me on “the list”.

Just goes to show you, no matter how hard you try, you will never know what’s going on behind the scenes. Nothing can give you an edge over the unknown.

FUCK. IT.

NO RESPECT

My Boss (looking at my coworker): OH GOOD MORNING (COWORKER), HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND, HOW ARE THINGS GOING?!

My Boss (notices me sitting next to her): Oh. Hello. (walks away)

Taking a shot at this little number this week.
Feel like like I “fell for it”. This book has huge pink lettering and a catchy title, but so far, is only as amazing as it is ridiculous. I’ll never find the right feminist canon for my life!
