I’m still in the hurry up and wait phase of estate management and pursuit of a gig. My second-phase interview was rescheduled for Monday instead of yesterday. These interviews in my employment world are largely ceremonial. Once they approve me, they’ll need to formally request me and send me to get an ID. Since this is a government gig through a temp agency and a subcontractor, it takes time to onboard. Last time, it took a month from first contact to working. Thankfully I had a gig during that time to hold me over then. My first contact regarding this gig was November 6th; Monday would be 4 weeks since then. In the meantime, I am studying like a mad woman to make myself available for other types of gigs.
I’ve also used this time to do some administrative work for my own office and bedroom. Handling tasks that take time but little brainpower. I’ve kept my brainpower for my heart and reading novels. This was a wise choice.
My friends have been really wonderful. Lots of phone calls and time in person. People are wrapping me up in love and it’s great. Even so, it feels like November has been the longest month. So much has changed. So much has happened. Hopefully working again will make time feel a bit more normal soon.
I have my first Rover gig tonight and I am excited. Especially since I did not originally realize that I get paid per animal. I’m earning double what I thought this weekend. The dogs are high energy, and that is fine with me. I get a chance to stay away from my roommates and play with animals while earning money. Wins all around. Hopefully this client and I get along enough to make this an ongoing gig.
