I think this is one of the first times that I left a job interview without any idea of how it went. It seemed fine. I did some research on the organization beforehand and my list of questions was at the ready. The conversation went smoothly. I made no major faux pas that I am aware of.
When I left I was given a nice handshake and a smile. But they didn't say when they would making a decision or you will hear from so and so. I have no idea if I will hear from them again or not. It sounds like an interesting position, different than what I am used to, but that is a good thing I think.
But, on the up side after leaving there I noticed a voicemail and it was an impromptu phone interview. So, I had two interviews in one week. I have not had that since I lost my job. So I am taking that as a good sign that things are starting to turn around in the industry. Which is a good sign for everyone because advertising departments are almost always the last to be hired back after a recession.
I sent out three more resumes this week. So if I hear back from even one I will be happy. Again this is the most I sent out at one time in quite while. The positions were just not there, but they are popping up more and more now.
I still have that issue with my toe. It doesn't seem to be healing at all. But it is not getting any worse either. I have been able to sleep without shoes most of this week. I even slept without socks the other night. Although, I will admit I should have had shoes on last night. My feet were quite cold when I woke up this morning. All and all I slept pretty well which is nice.
It is going to be cold on Sunday night with ice. But I just don't have the extra money for a hotel room so I will go back to the shelter I guess. I need to be very careful how I spend my money with so much less coming in.
I need to get to the food bank later this week for some cereal and maybe some fruit or granola bars. The bars help fill me up when I can't afford to buy a good sized meal. I also need some peanut butter for the protein. I don't exactly like peanut butter all that much, especially without some jam, but even with the fat it is healthy for me.
But I do know this is getting closer to being over. My biggest hurdle is almost behind me. It is just a matter of waiting for some paperwork at this point. That makes it easier to get through. I just need to keep saving as much money as I can so when I find a more reliable source of income I can find a cheap room to rent. I don't want to sign a long term lease, but that is really the least of my worries at this point.
