Wow! Really?!

So this has been a really trying week for me. My school group has been working my nerves. Last night, we were on a conference call for three hours until 1am, working our our project. I hate that they all wait until the last minute and then try to get things done. We are all adults in this group and yet and still, I have to be the one to delegate the assignments, send reminders and edit each and every assignment. I know that if I'm not the one to put the assignments together, then there is a strong possibility that I won't pass the class.

We had a staff meeting at work and my boss asked me in the middle of the meeting how my job search was coming. How do you think? If I had a job lady, I wouldn't be here at this very moment.

I had a job interview today and a phone interview. The in-person interview, the guy told me, "look, I'm going to be honest, I'm not offering you this job." To say I was a bit caught off guard would be an understatement. The phone interview went slightly better, he didn't tell me straight away that I didn't have the job, he said that they'd be in touch. The position sounds really demanding but at this point, I need not be choosy.

I don't have any real big plans for this weekend. I'd like to get my homework done this weekend so that I don't have to worry about it next week and I need to do some cleaning. I'd like to see a movie or two, I just need to make myself get back into the habit of going out alone again.

This really was a Wow Really!? post. Sorry :(

Dang he was harsh but I guess it's better than wondering if...

It is for that very reason that I could not finish the program I was in.(That and it was just all wrong for me) I HATE group projects. The fact that the contribution of another can influence my grade just stresses my OUT!! You are good, because that's just to much extra work. ((Hugs))

Group projects make me nauseous. But I still make my students do them because you're crazy if you think you can make films/the news in a vacuum. At some point you'll have to rely on someone to do something. Why did dude have you come in if you're not getting the job? Wack. The position for you is coming!! I hope you got some fun in!

Jameil-Group projects irk me to my core. Here it is another day that an assignment due with me waiting around for my group members to send me their portions for editing.

Thanks for the pep talk! I am awaiting that dream job!

Nina-I hear I'm part Pisces & Aquarius! The guy said that I needed more SAP experience. There are so many companies that want experienced SAP users that I just wonder where it is that I'm supposed to get this training if no one will hire me without it?!!

Girl...that is exactly why i hate group work.

What was the point of that dude interviewing you then? who does that?

I hope the second interview proves fruitful. No matter how demanding, you'll be surprised at your ability to produce.
