Oh Happy Day!

I've been jobless for almost a year now, and I've been tiptoeing around so much.  I only have 48$ to my name, meaning that I can't do a damn thing.  I freak out whenever I cough or my ear aches, thinking that this could lead to me needing to head over to a walk in clinic.  Fridays I get down on myself because Grendal and I can't chip in for a nice meal with out buddies.  Its even hard for me to buy cat essentials and my monthly, womanly items.  To make things worse, I'm living with Grendal and his parents.  Out of the four of us in the house, only one of us has a job.  To add more pain to it all Grendal's elder sister, and her family of 4, lives next door and mooches off the family.  Both families are going through hard times and it irks Grendal and myself that she shamelessly does this, but we have no control.

I'm hoping that is about to change.

Applications are the bane of my existence right now but since I need an income I kept putting in more.  I found out that Teavana was opening a shop in a nearby mall and thought 'why the hell not.'  So, Saturday morning I submitted my online application and figured I wouldn't hear from them.  Three days later(ie yesterday) I do my daily email check and the first thing I see is an email titled 'Interview Invitation.'  And it was from Teavana.  I freak out, flail at Grendal to look at the computer, and then proceed to do a little happy dance.  This is the first application out of all that I put in that had a response.  I know its only an interview but its a HUGE first step.  I worked at Starbucks for a little over a year and loved it.  Part of me is hoping that whole bit propels me forward and helps land me a job.  I mean, I don't care what position it is, I just need this job.  Plus, I'm hoping to get some nice tea discounts out of this. :D

So, my interview is tomorrow.  I've already put out an offering and asked that things are favorable for me in this endeavor.  I'll do the same tonight and probably do something right before my interview tomorrow.  Here's to hoping that my luck is turning around!
