The Awkward Life of Violet Cooper. This is where I post the art I'm collecting, and I may even actually post a journal entry, I rarely share my feelings like that to strangers though...But I'll keep it public just in case I lose the e-mail to this account too.

The quest for jobs. (RL problems)
SO today I finally got off my lazy ass and started searching for jobs. I didn't actually go outside, because I found out (after embarrassing myself by asking a Whole Foods employee if they had any job openings and if so can I have a job application, to which they looked at each other and told me that they don't have any job applications and I need to do it online D; ) that a lot of places have job applications online. So anyways, since today I was feeling lazy and I didn't want to talk to actual human beings, I searched for online applications. I started writing down places I would like to work at, such as certain book stores, comic book stores, record stores, thrift shops, etc. I found some job openings, unfortunately only one I could apply for at Whole Foods, but I'd rather be a cashier, than the job they have available, because it's too much responsibilities, I want to start at the bottom and work my way up, not start out with a job that has a lot of responsibilities to where I may f*ck up and then embarrass myself. So I just want to be a cashier for now, until I get great at the job, and work myself up the "ladder".

I found a PERFECT job at Half Price books, but sadly it's a full time job, and I want just a part time job, for now anyways. I have soooo many things coming up in the next few weeks, even months, really. I just found out I've been accepted to volunteer for Wizard World, and I'm also volunteering for this library event that's being sponsored by the Spurs (San Antonio basketball team) in a few days. San Japan is coming up in a few weeks, also.

Anyways, so I started looking at comic book stores, and I found a cool comic book store that's only about 6 miles away from me, so I looked at their website for job applications and they didn't have any. So I e-mailed them asking if there were any job openings, because I didn't see any applications on their website. I didn't say it exactly like that, but whatever. I got a reply within 10 minutes, the guy said "There might be." and then was like come in Tuesday with your resume and we can talk from there.

OBVIOUSLY, that means "there is a job, but I don't know if you're the best person for the job." so there's hope. :3 I don't even have a resume, again, I'm a lazy bastard, I still have made a resume, but I'm going to make one by tonight. I should definitely figure out what I'm going to wear. I read an article where people want you to dress nice, but not too nice, but not too casual either. And definitely not too fashionable for some reason, I guess they'd be intimidated? or they would think you're prestigious dick? maybe? But it IS a comic book store, so I'm scared they'd want me to wear jeans and a t-shirt (maybe one of my comic book t-shirts), but I'm not going to just to be on the safe side. I'll just have to figure that out by Tuesday...

Wish me luck? sweatdrop
