Still no job but i'll keep trying.


For starters, I turned 24 last month and I have never had a job.  Yeah, the last one I know, but you have to know that I live with with my grandparents ( my fathers trailer is to small for me and my sister to live with him) and uncles (grandparents oldest sons). My grandparents are in their 80s and uncle M is blind in his left eye and disabled. The only one in the house that works is uncle D. Even though my aunts live close by, they hardly ever visit. I haven't looked for a job till now because if I do get one, whose going to look after them while i'm gone?          

  Last year my grandma got a total knee replacement and now she can walk and do more then she could before the surgery.

Now to the reason i'm writing this. Last week a member of my family told me that the after school program she works for was in need of people. The way she said it, I thought it was for watching kids after school. She urged me to apply saying that since i'm good with kids ( I babysat a child thats known as 'the demon child' for 8 months) and i'd be great for the job; so i did. What she didn't tell me was that not only were they looking for people still going to school but it was a tutoring job. I found all this out when i went in for a interview yesterday.

I did my best to keep call but it was embarrassing saying no when she asked me if i had any employment history other than babysitting.

Part of me is thinking that she did this to humiliate me (her family and my sister are not on speaking terms). And I'm trying to tell myself that that thought is ridiculous but..... how could she not tell me it was for a tutoring job? I asked her what it was for but she just told me it was for watching kids after school.

Anyway i'm going to apply for a job at General Dollar.

Never mind

Off to sleep now

Been up for 24 hours straight...

I feel that if i post updates here on Lj, it will motivate me to write more. So...

  • I signed up for Reel Torchwood. My movie choice was Night at the Museum. I think i'm doing ok with it.

  • The first chapter of a Star Trek First Contact/Merlin fusion fic is done (working on the second) but I want it to be at least halfway done before i start posting anything.   2 yrs.  I have been trying to write this fic for 2 effing years.

  • Almost done with the first draft of a timeline i'm making for a Vikings fic I want to write. I say first draft because I know that I'm going to change somethings in it. I just need to see if and how the plot will move from one event to another.

  • I'm also attempting to make a 4th Doctors Scarf.  

My progress so far


Answer for question 4468.

If you could take a two-week vacation right now without having to worry about the details of making it work (money, vacation time, etc all taken care of), where would you go? Who would you bring with you, if anyone, and who would you want to make sure you went without?
I would go to Paris first. Spend a few days there then go to Wales, then London, then Italy.

I write...

I have written 700+ (its going to be 1000+ when finished) word fanfic for the Flash fandom.  I'm so happy. When its finished (soon) I will post it.
Its July 26, 2015 and I'm still not over Athelstans death!

Holy Cheese! I haven't posted things in like a year! I promise i will try to post regularly.
