Jobs and Finances

I still haven't started working yet. Surprised? I'm not.

Upstate called today and apparently the HR department has many stupid rules. Once a job is posted, no one can "officially" be offered the position until it has been posted for 10 days. Thankfully, this includes weekends. The Administrator said that on Monday, she will call me and *possibly* offer me the position. She laughed.... At least she knows how lame this rule is! We discussed salary, benefits, and our next step after *hypothetically* getting this job. The next hospital class is on April 5- If all goes well I will be starting that morning.

I would like to find a serving job that is 2-3 nights a week for a while. Just something for extra cash. I will probably end up at the Outback Steakhouse on Rt.31 in Liverpool, The Bluewater Grill on Rt.48 in Baldwinsville (why does it not have a website???), or some local joint. Now that I know more about the hospital job, a serving job will be easier to get.

I am really frustrated with finances lately. Without working, I have completely depleted my checking, savings, and credit cards. Go me. I applied for a Bank of America debt consolidation loan, but I was denied. Excuse me.... but how can they deny a consolidation loan when you NEED to consolidate? That makes NO sense to me, especially since BOA is a company that I owe money to. I think I found a way to borrow some money for a while so I can pay off my debt and not accrue intrest. We shall see.....

For those of you who would like to donate to the JILL IS POOR FUND, please email me at jillrachel@gmail.com I take paypal and money orders and of course, CASH!!! I'm *almost* kidding about this....

Hi there! I just wanted to make sure you're aware that your blog is in the queue for the Fiber Arts Bloggers ring, because you don't have any code up. I just sent you the code again--please let me know if you don't get it? I'd love to get you back in the ring. :)

Things will work out, don't worry about that! This is just one of those crappy times that eventually pass.
