It's been a draining week.
As annoyed as many probably were at my non-stop fundraising and E-panhandling, it took a bit out of me, to the point I feel completely drained, emotionally. Asking for help feels inherently submissive to begin with, but asking for donations is just extra sad.
I did get a few donations. My sincerest thanks to those who donated. I really am broke and I need gas and food to get my through until I get hired and receive my 1st paycheck. I had an interview w/ Sam Adams here in Cincinnati a week and a half ago. I thought it went well, but it could be at least another week until I hear back from them. Last week, I drove all the way up to Columbus to take a skills test for a customer service position in a call center for a utilities company. I should find out this week if I get invited back for an interview. Tomorrow, I have an interview with Sugar Creek Packing Co. in Fairfield, on the northern end of Greater Cincinnati. I figure I have a good shot at that job(QA) and then I have the call center job to fall back on if Sugar Creek doesn't hire me. Of course, it's possible that nobody hires me.
The QA job would probably start the next week, which means I may get paid in as few as 3 weeks, but the call center job, if hired, doesn't even begin until Sept. 14th, so I won't even see a paycheck until October in that scenario... plus, I'll have to drive 100 miles and stay with family during each week until I have enough money to move.
I'll be happy if I get hired, but unfortunately, I may need a little bit more money to get by, even if I get hired.
Any donations appreciated, but I understand if you can't or won't. I also found out that I am legally considered homeless. I'm staying with a friend, but that is only meant to be temporary. I guess it's just a label, but it really is a reality check that I have no place of my own. Hopefully, I have good news this week.
