snapdragon76: this is made of win and awesome (Default)
Just a brief update for those who might not have seen on my Facebook.

There was (is) a job opening for a librarian at a high school in Knoxville that I applied for last Friday. I haven't heard anything yet, so I'm trying not to be too worried since it's been only a week since I sent in my application (all online, of course). I'm hoping things will be in my favor, since I think I'd like it. I dunno if I'd be going in as a co-librarian with the current one, or as the only one. The posting wasn't that clear. It may be a bit premature, but I've even started looking for housing in the South Knoxville area where the school is located.

Now, I'm not gonna count my chickens before they've hatched or anything, just trying to be a bit proactive. I'm not gonna do much of anything aside from do some looking until I know for sure what'd going to happen. I wish I knew what was going on, however. This state of limbo frustrates me so much.

But, I'm trying to maintain a positive attitude overall. I'm still looking at other areas, but the pickings are mighty thin, especially around here. While there are lots of teaching positions open, librarians are few and far between. Mostly because most schools only have one, maybe two. And my school loan payments are due starting in July. I need to get a deferment if possible.

I did get a part-time job online recently. I signed a NDA, so I can't go into much detail, but I basically spend four hours (with a few breaks in between) using a proprietary client and rate social media advertisements using a set of guidelines established by the company. It can be somewhat tedious, but it'll be good for some extra money, so that'll help. Plus, there's a lot of movies coming out this summer that I want to see, so having some extra cash on hand would be handy. Once I get my permanent job, I'll have to quit, since I won't have the time to do it for extra income, but for now, it'll do.

Spring is here, kinda. The weather has started to warm up and the flowering trees have started to bloom all over. Lots of cherry trees, pear trees and tulip magnolia trees in the area. Mom and I went to the library and took some pictures since it has some nice trees there and we plan on going to a park this weekend to see what else has started blooming. I did see some daffodils here and there and I hope to be able to take pics of them at some point.

So that's what's been going on so far in a nutshell. Things are a bit slow. Mom is doing more things with the card group she goes to on Mondays. Stuff like karaoke nights and dominoes. I'm glad she's getting out and doing some more things with people.
