Yesterday, in a flurry of activity caused by boredom, I applied for E.V.E.R.Y. S.I.N.G.L.E. job on craigslist that I could see myself working at without mortal despair for at least 6 months.
And within an hour, I got a call back from one of the most random jobs I'd applied for: working at a bridal shop.
Which is a job, I have to say, that I would rock.
Next week, I also have an interview for teaching at a standardized test prep place. I'm not sure if ever before have two such antithetical interviews been in such proximity - one interview completely academic, the other, completely frivs.
As both are part time jobs, in an ideal world, I would get both of them. And be able to spend time every week both lecturing to students from Power Point slides and suggesting perfect wedding dresses and veils for stressed out brides.
And the best thing? No matter what, in a year, I'll be done with both jobs.
