Today I am a Happy Moira (TM). I am *officially* finished with the semester. Okay, yeah I still have that lit paper to turn in, but it's finished and I refuse to look at it for one more second. Tomorrow, strangely, I have an interview with the folks at the Writing Center. Apparently someone told them I could write! Psshaah!
Actually though, I'm thrilled. I had just gone to the financial aid office to find out what I had to do to get a workstudy job. It's strange, I've been in college for what, a quarter of my life, and I've never had a workstudy job. I find out that I'm eligible but that I have to find my own job. I come home with a list of people who are looking for people and a firm determination to make some phone calls. Instead, I find a letter from the writing center about a possible job. Kickass!
It would be really nice to have a job that actually uses my mad skillz instead of a job where I stare at a computer screen waiting for my coworker to wander away so I can check my email... again and again and again. I mean, I want to eventually have a writing related career so this would be a nice start! Cross your fingers for me, eh?
But, hey, if the writing center doesn't work out, anyone else want to hire me? I'm a fabulous cook, I tell silly stories, I will even dance when suitably provoked. I make way cool hemp necklaces and knitted scarves, and um, I could sell your stuff on ebay using my savvy marketing skills (which is really just sheer luck.. but whatever!) And if you ever need someone to make a prank phone call, I am -so- your girl. Oh wait...
Anyway, I am off to either A) watch City of Angels, B) clean my bedroom, C) have a staring contest with my cat, or D) stare longingly at my neighbor's hot pink turret in the sky.
Don't mention my name in the Writing Center... Please!Posted by: Evan at December 13, 2004 09:37 PM
Hey Moira, you'd be a great addition to the Writing Center staff. I work on 5th in the Office of Career Development, and the folks that work on 5th are a load of laughs. Good luck with that.
And what about a knitting party? ;-)Posted by: Karissa at December 14, 2004 07:43 PM
Someone told them I could write too! Ah! How dare they? Haha. Hopefully we both get hired- we'll show those Writing Center people how its done!Posted by: Vanessa at December 15, 2004 09:52 PM
