SO. I finished my last paper on Sunday. It felt GOOD getting it over with. Nothing to do now but wait for grades! And, you know, get ready for the holidays. Feeling a bit Grinch-y, but I’m sure I’ll perk up once I’ve finished getting everyone presents. (I thought I’d feel less Grinch-y when I decorated the house, but apparently not. Maybe I just am a Grinch.)
The day after I finished with school work I heaved a great, big, happy sigh, laid back and… then thought “Now what?” Not having a specific something that I’m supposed to be reading or writing or researching or whatever else makes me antsy. And sad. I don’t know why, but it makes me sad. So I guess I have to give myself homework. So far I’ve been catching up on TV shows I’ve missed (Supernatural, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Psych…) and not-too-seriously been looking for part-time jobs. Only “not-too-seriously” in the sense that so far the only remotely interesting things I’ve found are openings for a bunch of jobs I’m either not qualified for yet or that I’m over-qualified for. For example, no one gets a Bachelor’s in IT to be a receptionist at a salon and no one with a Bachelor’s in IT could be the Head Librarian overseeing all of the Children’s and Young Adult departments of all of the branches in a city. This morning a friend from undergrad was kind enough to let me know that his current job will be available when he gets a full time job elsewhere, so that’s something! *fingers crossed* I like that kid. (: Would’ve been happy to hear from him anyway.
In the meantime, I’ll spread the goofing off: watch a lizard kill bugs on a cellphone. That thing is adorable.
P.S.: Job not got. Turned out the position was being changed, merged with another one, making it very ASP and programming intensive… SO not my type of thing. I would have loved to be in the Information Architecture side of the project, but they were already outsourcing that to another company. /: Oh well. The interview was nice anyway. Nice people.
