Employed again!

So I am now officially employed again. I was chosen for a temp hire at the University about two and half weeks ago. HR finally got around to approving it today, so I could start working. I worked half a day in my new office and then I'll finish out the rest of the week. Mostly I'm doing data entry type things. Nothing too exciting, but the pay is good and working for the University is always nice.

I have to start paying back my student loans next month, so this came at exactly the right time.

Unemployed in the land of winter

I haven only been home for a couple days, but since I don't have much to fill up my time it feels like it has been forever. I have been scouring the internet looking for jobs. So far I have been turned down from two of them and I have been trying to continue to apply to at least one job a day if not more. Hopefully I'll get something soon.

In the meantime I am dog sitting for a previous boss of mine. She pays me a little bit and I get to raid the stash of salmon they have at their house. Its all good.

Right now though I am going nuts with nothing to do. I seriously need to have a job to keep my sanity.

Back in the 'Banks

For those of you wondering where I am, I made it back into Fairbanks on Sunday. I had a wonderful time in Wisconsin and I hope to go back to visit eventually.

Now its on to real life. I've been searching for a new job, and the prospects here aren't that great. But something will turn up I'm sure. Until then, I have voted and I am waiting to go to an election party. I am very excited about the results!!
