Job Hunting

My job hunt may be wrapping up, which is a relief. Though I will miss everything about not working except the lack of pay. I really am well suited to staying home all day, and hope that I have the chance to do it again in the future. I'm currently working with a temp agency, which immediately found me 2 1/2 weeks worth of work running a register at a campus bookstore. Today they called and said they may have a temp-to-hire position for me. The pay is perfect, but the company requires an interview and background check first, so we'll see.

More importantly however is that DS is job hunting. His is a much longer process which will likely last around 6 months, and the job wouldn't start until Fall semester of 2010. It's nerve wracking, but what can I do about it? We were very worried that budget cuts would result in no job openings this year, but so far he has a list of 15 schools he can apply to. Since I don't have any real interest in the university itself, apart from hoping that DS likes it, I spend my time researching the towns where these schools reside. My favorites so far all have rivers in them, and a lot of trees. Like this:

Of course, it's not all that likely we'll have a lot of choice in the matter. I will be happy if even one school wants to hire him, and I fervently hope that school doesn't end up being in Mississippi or something. Because honestly, I would die. I was not made for heat. *shudder*

Meanwhile, I don't start training at my temp job until Wednesday, so I'm still pretending to be on vacation. It's glorious.
