I took a nap earlier and really didn’t expect much from today, as there’s like a foot of snow outside and all of the school’s around here are canceled. It took me a minute to fully wake up but I managed to get myself to my therapy appointment. I met with a new counselor as my old one didn’t take my insurance, and this was our first session. I had to fill out a bunch of paperwork which was lame, and beforehand I was so nervous about finding the building that the pen kept slipping down my palm since my hands were so sweaty. But after I sat down and talked to her about who I was and who I want to become, I found that we’re most likely going to be a good match and I think we’re going to get along just fine. I’m excited to start my therapy process back up again. At the end of my senior year in high school, I had so many good coping skills that made me a better me. But I think going to school and not having sessions while in Kentucky was my downfall and it made my progress backtrack. I have another session next Wednesday!
Anyway, back to the nap. I woke up around 6 or 7 I think, and I saw that I had a missed call and a voicemail from about a half hour ago. The past few weeks I’ve been applying for jobs in surrounding towns and I finally received a call back!!
I applied to Panera to be a delivery driver since I love my car and driving around so much. I scheduled an interview date and I am going to it, but one of their requirements is that your car has minimal damage and no bumper stickers. My car, promptly named Winry, definitely has wear and tear on her.
She’s got two pretty small dents near the front tires, basically in the same spot but on opposite sides, so I call them her dimples. When I bought her she had those dents, as well as little depressions from being in a hail storm or something like that. It’s all across her hood, so I call them her freckles. I also caused some scratch marks on a couple spots, totally accidental – and there was that one time after I took the SAT some bitch hit me with her expensive Nissan and got white pain all along the side. And lastly, the back of my car is littered with bumper stickers. That’s how you know it’s me, besides the fact that she’s a shiny blue Suzuki hatchback. All of them are attached to memories and have meanings, so I don’t really know if I’d be willing to take them off. And I know you’re probably thinking, why the hell would you turn down a job just because of bumper stickers? Worry not, my internet reader.
Maybe fifteen minutes after scheduling the interview I get another call from one of the towns I also applied it. And it’s a Target employer asking about my application! I applied to be a retail and accessories associate and she wanted to do an interview with me as well! So not only do I have an interview on Saturday, but one on Monday!! I’m much more interested in this job and I’m actually really hoping that I get this one. I could answer people’s questions about clothes and probably put them away and organize them and shit, and that sounds like something I could be really good at doing.
So that’s what’s been going on today! I woke up thinking today would be pretty uneventful but it turns out that I did multiple adult things! Fingers crossed for me and the interviews, I’m nervous as hell but I’m so excited to work and pay my dues and become an actual human being. What have you done today?
