There is some justice in this world.  Let's leave it at that. :)

This morning started out not-so-great.  Last night I decided that, since mirei and vintagefury are coming over tomorrow night, I should spend the night at home to sort of get used to staying at home again.  BIG MISTAKE.  I woke up late.  Late enough for my father to be tempting my dog to jump on my bed.  My mother and I had a small bitchfest in the bathroom about me sleeping in late (for Christ's sake, it was 6:50 AM).  I broke my only pair of sunglasses (they were cheap, but still) and started off late.  Surprisingly, things cheered up after that.  It only took me 20 minutes to drive to work (usually takes half an hour at that time of the morning).  I found parking relatively close to campus, and the day has been going along at a decent pace.  A little bit of running around, but mostly holding down the fort, as it were.

My coworker invited me out to lunch.  I suppose I should be nice and accept.  I'm not very keen on her.  She tends to complain a lot and doesn't really understand how the office works, which can be irritating when I have to leave what I am doing (oftentimes a task that isn't unimportant) to help her with something that should have been done two weeks ago and is due TODAY.

Umm, wow.  I just got offered a job at our campus bookstore.  Two minutes ago.  I HAVE A JOB!  Yay.  I'll add a second post soon.  I need lunch.

Alright, so here is the update on the job situation.

Until I get a better job offer, I will be working in our campus bookstore, a small part of Barnes & Noble.  Decent money, a good job, and it certainly takes a weight off of my shoulders for when I return.  I'm going to be there for a few months at least, because I realize that they want to hire someone that will be there longer than a month or two, which I am completely comfortable with.  It's a job.  I start work tomorrow morning at 9,work until like 1 or 2, then work on Sunday afternoon.  Then I don't work until the day I come back from vacation.  So that Campus Safety position... I'm not too worried about the lag.  Besides, in the case of the FSS job I applied for, the Assistant Dean sent me an email saying she would get back to me within a month to tell me if I was part of a select group to be interviewed.  She also said my degree at the school would not be forgotten.

All I care is that I have a job when I get back.  And it makes me very happy.  I did want a little time off, but I would rather work than not have a job.  Ever must I be a busy bee!  My supervisor gave me a blanket too.  A fleece blanket.  Exact same one as my ex gave me last year.  But hey, it's a nice blanket.  You can never have too many.  They have some odd ty-dye ones too, but I would much rather have this one.  Yay!

Hope all is well on your end.
