I've been so frustrated lately.
Ever since David got back, I haven't got to see him that much. I did get to see him on Friday and Saturday after I had class. On Sunday, I didn't get to see him. He had drill. He ended up feeling bad, because he drank too much water. On Monday, I didn't get to see him at all. Him and his roommates have to find a new place to live. There weren't planning on living together, but now they all three are staying in town. Now, they have less than a week to find a new apartment or house, because their lease is about to be up. I hope for at least a day, I can see him a full day. Pretty soon, things are going to be hectic. Well, not really hectic, we are just going to have less free time. Sometime in August, he starts classes back again. Around the same time, I start my practicum, and hopefully will have a job by then.
I also got called for TWO more interviews, since the last time I posted about jobs. The interview that I had today didn't turn out well. They wanted somebody that was bilingual, and that could speak Spanish fluently. I had a feeling that, that was going to be one of the requirements. I studied Spanish for four years. I just don't know it well enough to converse with someone, whose first language or only language is Spanish. If I had known Spanish, I'm pretty sure I would have gotten the job. She was really hoping it would work out. The same goes for me. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. The woman who interviewed is from my hometown, and we share the same alma mater. She informed me about another position that they had open. That position would start immediately, and you could basically pick your hours. She is going to pass my information onto the director of that department.
Another interview that I have is postponed for next week.
A third place called me for an interview. This would be a really good position to get. It pays really, really well. Plus, it is another job in my field. I also know someone, who works there. If I get it, I should be able to use it as my internship next year.
As I was writing this blog post, a fourth place called me for an interview.
WOW! Four interviews in a week's time period! Hopefully, I'll get more interviews next week or get one of two positions (that I wanted) that I interviewed for this week.
I'm also thinking about how I am going to balance everything, when I get a job.
How am I going to...
-work 40 hours (most likely will be MTWRF)
-go to school 12 hours a week (not all, but most: Friday 4pm-9pm, Saturday 9am-4pm)
-do a practicum for 12-15 hours a week (MTWR 6pm-9pm)
-do homework and study for class
-workout (30-60 minutes SMTWRFS)
-keep a clean apartment
Just thinking about trying to balance everything, is going to suck! It stresses me out. I'm just hoping that I get that one job that I'm wanting, so I can use it as an internship. That way, I won't have to find a separate place to do one next year.
Another thing that stresses me out, is if I get a job, if they will let me take off that week in October that I'm going to be in Washington DC. I'm also wondering the same thing about my practicum. The teacher that I have during the time is going to work with me, so it will be okay I miss. Either way, I'm going to go, no matter what. I just don't like to think about the "what ifs."
Things would be so much easier if I already had my master's degree. There are about 10 times more jobs out there that require master's degrees. Just about all the Social Services/Human Services/Psychology/Social Work/Counseling jobs require a master's degree, and I'm almost at the halfway point come December.
Almost 7 months down,until I graduate
16 months to go,
