Fingers crossed!  
I sent off a resume to a nearby hotel this morning, as they advertised that they're looking for a night auditor. They called me back half an hour ago to schedule an interview for tomorrow.

My fingers are crossed that I'll get the job. My mother's also applied for it and has an interview, but I think I have a bit of an advantage over her. She may be older than me (and thus appear to be more reliable, even if the opposite is the truth), but I worked overnights by myself in my last job, whereas she's only worked maybe one overnight shift to cover for somebody (thus she wasn't given any of the typical overnighter work to do because she hadn't been trained on it). I also have more experience making hotel reservations than she does, after my two and a half years working at Wyndham's call centre.

I think I'd enjoy that job. I have no doubt that it wouldn't just be sitting around and playing online for half the night, and that actual work would be involved, but I also don't doubt that there'd be some slack hours where I could read or write instead. I've dealt with the morons who think that I should kick somebody out so that they can get a room. I've dealt with prank calls, I've dealt with perverts. I haven't dealt with drunks being right in my face, but I'm sure I can manage.

Also, casaclyzm works nearby, so she might be able to come and hang out with me over her lunch or something, which might be cool.

But I just have to wait and see. Fingers crossed, and wish me luck!

I know someone else who was out of a job for a while but just recently managed to get one -- so consider that a good omen!

And, at any rate, best of luck!

(Hopefully you don't mind me saying that much, ahaha... ^^;;;)
