A Day

This morning I had an interview at the Houseware store, and I think it went quite well. Turns out it was just a prelim with the floor managers, a secondary interview with the store manager during the week of August 7th. I have an interview at the local coffee shop Monday though, and I'm kind of hoping I do well with that.

I've been thinking about the pros and cons of each job, it's quite a quagmire. The coffee shop would be busy, bustling, hectic, and fun. (For me those are all positive adjectives. Well, hectic is neutral.) Higher chance of burnout, I'd say, but it would be a ton of fun. The houseware place, on the other hand, would be more laid back, a bit slower paced (though still busy at times), and probably boring.

So should I take the more fun job that may burn me out, or the more boring one that's a safer bet? Well, my favorite jobs in the past have been the hectic ones--advisement, open houses as a tour guide, etc. I get a charge out of interacting with people. Was I drained when I got home? Most definately. But I couldn't wait to go back the next day. Other jobs that were more boring (and will not be named) were torture to be at, and I had a hard time hauling my butt there in the first place. So, I'm leaning toward the coffee shop. But we'll see.

Other stuff today--got my Cali driver license in the mail, and mere nine days after I went there. My picture is awful. It's the kind you never show anyone, ever. The camera made my face all red, and the camera operator made me take off my glasses! I think this is the first time I've seen myself without glasses, to be honest. A mirror doesn't work because by the time I get close enough to be in focus all I can see is my nose. :P And the license itself is ugly, too, all yellow, the exact color that looks horrible on me. -_^ And they couldn't even bother to print up my info in a nice font, it looks all dot matrix. It seems a little sturdier than a NY license, though, while not being a "credit card" license in rigidity.

I've been watching a ton of the West Wing lately, and have been a very happy, wordy girl because of it. Isn't Sorkin's writing wonderful? He only wrote the first four seasons, I think, and I'm at the beginning of season three. ^_^

I could have sworn there was something else I wanted to write about... huh. When I think of it, if I think of it, I'll be sure to add it in an edit. Until then, I hope everyone has a great weekend!
