|03:24 pm - I feel like I ought to laugh a bit....|
A YEAR AGO: *iz applies to temp agency*
*hears nothing from them, even when calling in regularly*
TODAY: *receives unemployment check*
*realizes only $11 left in entire claim + extensions*
STILL TODAY: *receives call from temp agency about a job!*
(OMG maybe I'll actually have work and not have to freak out!)
*realizes, during quick phone interview, that skills are not a perfect match and job is not for iz*
*sends updated resume to agency anyway*
*stares at computer, unable to focus on writing after this reminder that there are no jobs out there for iz anywhere*
Current Mood: depressed
Which temp agency? Did Aquent ever call you? (I put you down as a talent rec) On Monday I can ask my agent who runs the writing side of things and try and get them in touch.

The first one I signed up with, in hopes of accounting/admin gigs: AppleOne.
I got an email from Aquent saying they were going to call. They haven't yet. *g* (Thank you thank you, btw. I'm starting to think that the best option right now is to just walk up and down Colorado and ask all the businesses if they're hiring.)
Wish there was more I could do... but sending more hugs anyway.
That's a fantastic hug icon! I feel better already. :)

Don't give up! (Which your last sentence suggested you might be in danger of doing.)
I can't give up--I'd end up living in my car! :) But thank you.

Oh, dear. I am so sorry. That really does suck.
I can offer virtual hugs and virtual chocolate...

Ugh. I'm so sorry. You're in my ongoing prayers.
