I Count You Twice


Thanksgiving


It is so nice and cool that there is no need for the air conditioner this weekend! Chick-a-boom, chick-a-boom... Don't you just love it?! 


They were not kidding about the rain in Corpus Christi on Friday and Saturday. It was pouring. I have to say that I was very disappointed in the interview, mainly: (1) because of the low salary and (2) because I would be just another "at will" employee, which means that they can fire you any time without warning. Also, towards the end, I had questions to ask, but the interviewer seemed anxious to end the interview, which to me means that she had not scheduled enough time for the interview, she did not expect me to ask questions, or she was not that much into me. Ouch! Maybe she is just a bad interviewer?



The trip makes me wonder what I need to do in order to relocate. For one thing, to rent an apartment, you have to make at least three times the rental quote., plus you have to have enough money for deposits and/or first and last month's rent. Also, you have to be working at your job for at least six months. Plus, there is the problem of moving your stuff from one location to the other. What would Martha Stewart do? LOL

I don't know about Texas, but here California is an "at will" state. We can get fired at any time for any reason.

Rents out here are outrageous and I can't afford to even rent my own studio.

Have you gone back to work yet at you current job ?

It really is a troubled time that you are having. I can only pray that things will work out in the end. even if it means that you have to stay near where you are now and perhaps look for a better job but hang on to the one you have until booted out or otherwise. It is all a testing time
Love Sybil xx

AZ is an at will state too, it was even in my offer letter, plainly stated. I am sorry you are going through this, however, a change is what you need to regain your sanity! Good luck!

wow. that fire at will is crazy. Here in Canada there has to be valid reasons....and a lot of rules around letting someone go. Employees have rights.
But about a job...He hasn't forgotten you....you just haven't gone through that right door yet. It will happen.

Something good will happen soon in work. I have stepped out of my comfort zoen and am looking for teaching jobs now.
