My Life

Interviews, Grades, Sleeping, Colds

I know, it’s been a long time since I really updated. But I’ve been busy and haven’t really been in the mood.

This last week has been full of stress, and I can’t wait tell next week at this time, because my Drew Bear will be here to comfort me. Thank god, I can’t wait!

Lets see… First couple things.
I’ve been applying to jobs like mad. I found out that I didn’t get the job I really really wanted in Santa Ana, so that’s really sad. Though I’ve applied for a job at the AIDS Service Foundation in OC. They’re a completely M$ shop, infact the Director of IT used to be a higher up at M$. So that’s scary. I’m really confused about why they want to talk to me. Because as I stated in my resume, cover letter, and a follow up e-mail that I’m very much so linux/unix and care not for M$. I’ve been very blunt so far about my not liking M$ products, so I’m really really confused about why they want to talk to me. So far the communication has been that he wanted me to interview before May 21st. I told him I couldn’t be there, but would be able to be in the area within 3 weeks of an accepted job offer. I’m anxiously waiting for his reply.

Secondly, a guy e-mailed me and offered an overnight tech support job for a company in the UK. For software they develop. He said that he doesn’t anticipate many support calls, so he’d train me in SQL programming as well. What that means exactly, I’m not sure. I e-mailed him back and said sounds good. Then he asked what my pay range was. This is where things get dicy. I’m not exactly sure what to say… So I just went for National Average of $45,000. Which was last years average. Again, I’m anxiously waiting to hear back.

Grades came out today, I’m officially graduated. Though I’m VERY annoyed by a few of my grades.
First is HDFS, which I’ve bitched about before. I did get the grade I knew I’d get, but not the grade I SHOULD have gotten.
Second is my Yucatan class, I got a fucking C-… WHAT THE HELL? I e-mailed her and said that I wished to discuss it. I’m REALLY fucking pissed about that. How the HELL could I have gotten a C-?
Everything else, I got what I was expecting. So that’s good.

I haven’t been sleeping very well lately. I don’t know why, but I just can’t get to sleep, when I do sleep it hasn’t been good sleep and I’ve been waking up about 5 or 6 every morning. It’s really annoying. And I’m getting very run down by it all.

I also have a cold. 🙁

Other then that my life has been the same as usual. Working away and doing not much else.

I really can’t wait for Andrew to get here! 😀

Laters all.
