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.
