Unemployment Line

So it finally happened - I moved back to the big bad Bay Area. Can you believe it???

I’m here to save some money by living rent free (thanks mom) and go back to school to see if this time I can actually finish…which is still to be determined. I start classes on Thursday and am less than excited. I was never built to be a typical student and now with four years in NYC, I’m definitely not suited to be a DVC student for two semesters - but it’s ONLY two semesters and then I am hopefully off to SF State - unless they determine me to be undesirable…which is just ridiculous cause I’m fabulous.

I have no real plan - I’m debating between getting into television production or music or radio or event management.…I’m very torn. So at the moment I guess I’m open to everything - there’s only one problem - I NEED A JOB!!! Preferably something related to my interests above…but I suppose beggars can’t be choosers.

So if anyone has any leads, friends who need help on projects, etc. let me know - I am so available it’s becoming painful.

kati vol's friend is looking for a babysitter in SF.

...kristen's dad might have some temp desk jobs open at UCB. that's if you're really desperate.

I'm gonna pass on babysitting opportunities - but that's all i'd really turn down. temp jobs at UCB is definitely something to consider...but i don't know if I'm that desperate yet, but i might be by next week! - didn't Nuala do that for awhile?

Craigslist is great for jobs but you have to check it obsessively and have good rÃsumà writing skills to stand out amongst the deluge of applicants.

thanks - i've been on craigslist like non stop everyday since i've been back looking for something that suits me - now i just have to start applying for everything that's posted regardless of whether or not I'm gonna like it :)

ady, I will let you know if any temp jobs open up in my dad's dept. he works in a much better place than he did when nuala was there, so it wouldn't be too awful and the pay is decent.

i'll also let you know if i hear of anything good, obviously.

welcome back!
