freaking out over finances in the wee early hours a month ago I applied for a full time job at a prestigious university in the area. Can we guess where this is?
I have been trying to become a Buckeye since I started working at CPS, so for 6 years I have been applying for jobs and nothing ever happens and I thought this would follow suit.
The reason for the freak out, this new job isn't working out. The pay isn't great, the hours kind of bite and all of that I can deal with but the physical exhaustion is simply to much. I work a day and I am off my feet for 3, last weekend was the worst so far and husband actually told me to quit. I had to have him bring me my real tennis shoes not the work ones and I could barely walk myself out to his car, when I got there I was a blubbering mess because I was in so much pain.
Classes have finally started to pick up and I was feeling less guilty about leaving my job, thing were looking up.
Then husband had a "talk" with me.
The talk went something like this:
Husband:We are getting by but barely
Me: feeling guilty
Husband:You need to find steadier work
Me: feeling more guilty
Husband: until then you need you ask your mom for more money
Me: dying a little more inside
I get a text from bestie and she informed me that I made the short list. The short list for the job that on a whim I applied for, the full time job that on a whim I applied for.
I. was/am. nervous.ecstatic.praying. every. other. second. to.get. this. job. I think the periods after every word really get the point across.
This opportunity would be amazing for me not only for helping us financially but I would be in at a university that has a medical center that if I stayed there I could transfer to after I graduated from school. AND not to mention I could continue my education for FREE.
its full time and I would have to completely change my school schedule and be a quarter more behind than I already am.
I talked it over with husband and he always tells me in the end it is up to me and I think I know what I am going to do.
If I get called in for an interview and get offered the job, I am going to take it. It took me 6 years to get in to OSU and I am not going to pass up the opportunity.
I looked in to it and all the classes I am taking right now are offered in the evening and on weekends, so I am covered there, the only issue will arise when I start the actual surgical tech program but that could be another 2 years before that happens.
This comes at such a hopeful time because husband has a second interview with a company in a couple of weeks.
Please ladies, throw a prayer or some good jewjew our way.
