Give me a Break

Well the good news is it's still January and it's only been 3 weeks since my last blog entry. So I guess I haven't given up this blog thing yet. It's just hard, writing, not getting paid, wondering who out there is even reading it, except some guy in... is it Ohio? Anyway, I'm back for now. I feel a temper tantrum coming on, you know, a dump on readers, oh no, not good.

Today I have an interview at an independent pharmacy, the owner sounds nice, but it's 45 minutes away. That could turn nasty really quickly. But for now, my hair is blown dry, I'm up for the interview, maybe lunch in a new town. They compound lots of meds there which could be interesting I suppose, although can pharmacy ever be that interesting? I haven't worked in 3 months since Walblues let me go after that horrendous internship. I just got a preceptor evaluation from Godzilla and no surprise there, she slammed me. I put a call into the board to add my two cents to the record, you know, my evaluation of her. Saw an episode on The Office where they did that, so figured I'd give it a shot.

Well off to my real life of looking for a job and writing and reading and piano. Life is short, make the most of it. Find your passion and if you can't get paid for it, work it girl!!!

Needle in a haystack

OK, so nothing, absolutely nothing happening on the pharmacy job front. I guess I'm waiting for someone to call me and say,"Hi Marsha, we have this adorable little pharmacy 10 miles from your house, and get this, it has an actual soda fountain, and oh, the owner just loves jazz music so the sound track is mostly Ella and Louis, and of course, yes there is a 45 minute lunch break. Can you start right away?"

But right now, I'm mostly concerned about my sore hip, is it sciatica or cancer, as in osteosarcoma, and until my doctor's appointment in six days, I'm mostly fretting. Can a hypochondriac ever really be happy? And then there's my concert for an entire school coming up in two weeks, so basically I'm a wreck.

I'm seeing a pattern here. I know the best thing for me would be to first get a job, get some money coming in, and seriously I am looking a few hours a week and so far absolutely nothing. It really does seem that only chains are hiring. The chains have taken over, ruined the profession as we all know. But today I will continue looking.
