Holy Crap!

When it rains, it pours.

I heard from an architectural placing agency today, and am going in for an interview tomorrow, but right after I set that up, she called about a potential immediate job at a firm owned by a GSD professor. I still have the interview tomorrow, and possibly the weekend to mull this job over. It's a contractural job, hourly pay - to end in June, but it might look as good on my resume as my stint at SOM, which only lasted a month...

Then, while I was on the phone with someone else, I got a phone call from another architecture firm about an interview for next week!

Just when I had started losing all hope, and seriously thinking about hauling myself over to Starbucks (except that would require not being a sad lump on my couch, which was one thing stopping me from that fate)...someone saved me - and at least helped me realize that I have a good ten weeks or so to find a job in my field, at least.

(Not to get all weird about this, but I've been lighting prayer candles for my grandma for over a year, but in the past month or so, I had stopped because I felt dejected and sad and just...not in the mood. Two nights ago, I decided to say a little prayer to my grandma and lit a candle - and apologized for neglecting her and our little ritual. I also told her about my job troubles and...I know this...sounds ridiculous, so I'll stop - but seriously. It's a little freaky, and also makes me feel a little bit like someone is looking out for me.)

Congrats on the flood of potential job oppurtunities! I think the candles are beautiful in every respect.

You'll be getting an amazing card once you get a job.
