I hate job-hunting. I am really afraid that I'll wind up having to take a job at Wendy's or the Piggly Wiggly. That may make me sound elitest, and really I need a job right now, but I am trying to be a little discriminating in the jobs I apply for. It just doesn't seem that there are all that many copyediting jobs within driving distance. I would even settle for a receptionist job. I'm just trying to find one that isn't an hour's drive away. It wouldn't be too bad most days, but I'm a little afraid of driving in a winter storm with all these crazy Wisconsin drivers around (because they ARE INSANE).

I've never really had to LOOK for a job before (except the hotel job)...I should try to find a job-finding service around here, but I'm afraid I won't be able to pay for their services. (Note to self: Of course, you could just CALL and ASK. Duh.) Yeah...maybe I should do that.

But the boat job came about because they asked Nina if she knew anyone looking for work, and she gave them my number, and the proofreading job came because Keels got an email from them and she told me about it. I HATE going on job interviews, because I'm always nervous and stuttery and worrying that I'll spit when I talk or I'll have underwear on the outside of my clothes or my nose will start bleeding or something. I know everyone hates interviews, that's not the point, this is about ME, can we focus please?

My brain just died. I have to go.
