Entry #13: Hwarf

(to quote a sound coined by Chris D)

The heat is oppressive today.  I’m trying to decide if it’s worth trying to carry a small A/C unit the 15 blocks tomorrow.  I just wilted this evening and crashed for a few hours with my face on a towel.  Not to mention that it’s loud to keep my windows open since the train in one block away.  And dogs.  And honking.

I don’t remember if I mentioned this (and I’m too lazy to go back and read to find out), but my next call-back for the tutoring job was scheduled during two of my three classes, even though I gave them my schedule first. Considering all of the job postings I get from the department’s listserv, I’m not sure I need this tutoring job.  I just think it’s a little unfair to ask my schedule and then plan training during the worst 4-hour period of my entire week.

Today we had a luncheon for incoming history students. I also made the rounds and dropped off applications at 6 or so Starbucks near school.  I actually have an interview for a supervisor position at one, so that might put me into a livable earning bracket. I’m not sure I can do minimum wage. I have been trying Starbucks because they offer benefits to part-timers.
I am also applying for clerical/administrative positions at the school itself. I just found out today that starting in the spring, any student working for the university in any capacity is eligible for insurance. So I might not need to work for Starbucks at all.
