My lips are sealed

. . . for just a few things.  I have been told MANY times that I don’t have a filter and that is pretty accurate.  I blather on and on and on about pretty much everything.  But not right now.  There are just some things I can’t talk about, and to be honest, I don’t really want to.

 

What I can tell you:

I didn’t get the job, making the whole asking for advice thing last week a moot point.  I wasn’t going to take it anyway.  I know some may disagree, but someone made a good point.  “Was I going to be reliable and on time every day?”  And I couldn’t answer yes to that.  I pride myself in being EARLY for everything [despite the transportation issues I was still 45 minutes early for the interview.]  I do not think it would work especially if there is traffic/snow/ice and other things I can’t control to get the to the 4 different ways to get to that job for 3 hours/day.  Also, I had NO WAY of getting the money for the first few weeks of transportation to the job until I got  my first paycheck.   I’m glad I went on the interview to be refreshed on the kinds of questions that are asked and so on and so forth.  I know everyone who gave me advice meant well, but I am not a person who likes to have it take 3 hours to go a half hour distance by car.  I did that when I commuted from Boston to Norwood via commuter rail and that was a miserable year.

 

I’m broadening my job search.  I have no problem moving somewhere if the job is right and I can get assistance with relocation.  At this point I have to do that.  I mean if I can move off to Glasgow for a year, I can certainly move to another state that has teacher or other jobs I can do that pay decently {if there are any}.

 

If Ruth and Harry aren’t together by the end of Spooks, I will be seriously bummed out.  I wish they would bring back Keeley Hawes’ character for the final season.  That would rock.

 

I actually didn’t think “Closing Time” was bad.  I really didn’t like “The Lodger” so I went into this episode with low expectations.  I still wish it was DT and I think he would have smashed some of the scenes out of the ballpark [please let’s not go there about the Red Sox, ‘k?]  but MS did ok.  Now, if he only had eyebrows.  Boots sells eyebrow dye- GET SOME!

 

I’ve watched seasons 1-6 of NCIS. [Yes, I have no life].  Finally my sister and I agree on a guy we wouldn’t kick out of bed, Mark Harmon.  But I’ve thought he was hot since St. Elsewhere. [don’t go there either, I know I’m old. ]

 

I think I’ve run out of things to say if I’ve moved on to my tv viewing thoughts.  🙂

    I had two interviews with the same company over the last couple of weeks. I was convinced they were going to offer me the job which, regardless of the fact that I have no health insurance nor any income or savings to live off of, I really didn’t feel was a great fit. I spent many hours agonizing over whether I could actually refuse a job offer or if I should just suck it up and take it…only to end up not getting the offer. It was a weird feeling I still don’t think I’m over. I think unless the other option is living on the street, you should feel secure refusing a job if it really won’t work for you. (In my case there were great health benefits but the pay was so low that I basically would have been working to pay for my commute to my job.) Only you know what is best for you and you shouldn’t have to apologize for that.

    I’m so sorry that along with your job search you have so many other things going on that are affecting you negatively. The only thing keeping me sane right now is that my family isn’t making me crazy and are being really supportive…and I know that’s huge.

    Sending you positive vibes and love.

      It is just a big ball of suck all around. I just wish something would change positively!
