head hunting

so, the warehouse job still mostly sucks. i did learn to drive a forklift, but i am never given an opportunity to actually use that skill. last week, i only got half my hours in due to a lack of work to process, when i was expecting overtime. at least i got a few hours in at martin marietta on saturday, so that will help.

i have an interview wednesday evening for an office manager position at walsh construction. i love that the salesmen (people i never met in person) are recommending me for jobs that cross their paths. everyone at martin marietta is really going to great lenghts to help me find a better job. teri (my old boss) is so supportive and encouraging. they all think quite a lot of me. i, of course, don't think i'm well-qualified for this office manager position. i know that i could do it (eventually); i just don't know why anyone should give me the chance to prove that.

if i don't get this job, i think i'll be getting an interview for the martin marietta district office sometime soon. they promoted the hell out of that department at the end of the year, so they definitely have a place for me.

what does it matter? i should be in hawaii. i'm not. i don't know why i'm not. i don't know if i ever will be again. i don't know why that is either. since i'm not there, i obviously can't go to school there. so, i should return to school here. will i? i don't know.


not much else is new. been dating (disastrously). been reading quite a lot. (check out sarah vowell.)

i miss the ocean.

i miss the decisiveness of last spring, of knowing what i want.

i was happy once. hawaii changed me. i wish i felt like it would be the same again this time around, but i don't.

that one seemed a little too out there for me as a first-read, but i'm very much enjoying the partly cloudy patriot, so i think i'd like assassination vacation as well.

I love Partly Cloudy Patriot. Assassination Vacation is also really good. I think you'd like it.

"I shall choose my friends among men, but neither slaves nor masters. And I shall choose only such as please me, and them I shall love and respect, but neither command nor obey. And we shall join our hands when we wish, or walk alone when we so desire. For in the temple of his spirit, each man is alone. Let each man keep his temple untouched and undefiled. Then let him join hands with others if he wishes, but only beyond his holy threshold."
