WOW! AN INTERVIEW... Oh shit

Well, last Wednesday I got a call for an interview. Sweet you may say and that's what I thought too. When I got there I was so freaked out but I thought I was nailing it. I was speaking really proper French and things were totally flowing. It wasn't until he handed me a mini essay questionnaire that I started freaking out. I could have totally studied for it... But I didn't know that this would be in the interview. Sigh... I managed to fill out each section but when I left the room I paused and thought about what I wrote. Yeah... I wrote something that was a really big NO NO in the catholic school board. I said that in the near future they were probably going to change the definition of marriage. FRICK! I feel like such a retard. Why the hell would I fricking write that?! Well I hope I still get the job even though I'm a complete idiot. I HATE INTERVIEWS!!!!

Hope is dwindling

Sigh... I'm pretty sure that I did not get the job. What pisses me off this that they don't even have the decency to call me to tell me that the position has been filled. FRICK! I hate job hunting.
Plan #2 will be trying to get a job with the military as a French instructor. Apparently they need instructors all the time. If I do that, I might still be able to go back to University to finish my translation diploma. Or something like that!

Does anyone have a job for me?

Well... I guess it's time for me to go study. (for nothing, it's not like I have a job)

I got a call, but where's the interview?

Well I got a call from the French school that I want to work for, but where the hell are they now? The principal called to see what my schedule was like. That was almost 2 weeks ago. Should I call them? I was thinking about pulling the whole "my phone was broken. Were you trying to get a hold of me?" or I can say, "I was just calling to touch base and to see what's going on with the whole interview thing" Is that too much to do? I don't know... I hate working!

I have 1 month and 30 days before I graduate. Crazy! I cant wait

Why oh why

I really want to get out of school. I'm not really sure how much more I can handle. There are just too many retarded people in university who think that there are easy job everywhere and that they'll get a teaching position right away. Sigh.... I think this is called getting old.

I went down to the immersion school to drop off my CV and shit... Well... I found out there are are a lot of applicants for the job that I want! Damn it! Why does this shit always happen to me. Mr. Wonderful is starting to rub off on me. GRRRRR!

I have to make pumpkin pie this weekend. Go Canadian Thanks Giving GO!!! I told the bride that I will make her one, Mr. Wonderful's family will get 2, I might make his grandma one, my family will get 2 and my grandma will get 1. Sigh... That's a lot of pumpkin pies! I'll probably make about 10 so that I can give them away. I know things always happen and someone wants a pie or I've pissed someone off and I've gotta give them a pie. If you want a pie, make sure to tell me and I'll make you an extra one!

I DON'T WANT IT!!

Well well well... Wasn't I just the smartest person around? I went to go visit the school that I may teach mandarin in. Lets just say I don't want to embarrass myself. Apparently they want to interview me in Mandarin. I said I knew how the language worked and how to speak basic mandarin but they still want me interviewed in Mandarin. HAHA, I'll save myself the embarrassment of not understanding anything they say. "The Sister" you'll still tell me to do it, and I probably will

Rumor has it that a teacher had to go on "leave" from a local French immersion school. Hmm... Je parle Francais, mais est ce que c'est a la niveau qu'ils veulent? Je ne sais pas. I guess I can do the whole French thing. Just MAYBE. Mr. Wonderful, The Bride and Indian Chicca all think I should apply for it. Wouldn't that be worse if I couldn't do the interview in French? It is my Minor at University.

Sigh.... I have to work for Edmonton Catholic Schools tomorrow teaching grade 7 flute players how to play the flute. They don't even know which end to blow into. It's a great gig, but sometimes they're pretty stupid. Well I was in that boat once and I guess I turned out okay.... I guess....

Application Hell

I'm applying to all the school boards all over my area and it's FRIGGING annoying!! I think they should just have a big data base where I put all my info and all the school choose which graduate they want. I've written the same application form about 5 times already and I have another 5 to do. Why do they do this to me???

This last semester has been so hard for me so far. I feel like I've been here for 3 months already but it's only been 2 weeks. WHEN WILL IT END?! The Bride to be told me that this semester is the hardest one cause you really don't feel like doing it anymore. Thanks The Bride. It does help that Indian Chicca and The Bride are all in the same boat as me! Sorry The Bride I wont be there to hang out with you next term cause I 'm outta there, but it was your fault that you decided to get another degree! :P

So far I may have a job lined up for January but I don't know if I should take it. What do you think? It's Teaching Music and Chinese in a High School. That's GREAT except for the fact I speak Cantonese and I'd be teaching Mandarin. They're similar... kinda

School

94 days, 23 hours and 44 minutes left of my capture in this hell hole institution they call University. I'm in my 6th year and this year we had to do introductions. Needless to say I am the student who has been attending university for the longest. Sigh... 94 more days, 23 hours and 43

I thought I was taking a class on French Myth and Mythology because the course listing was Myth, Miracle and Mystery. Nope, this class is a French Mystery Novel Class. WOW... I wasn't expecting that. We have to read an Agetha Christie book and well.... I SUCK at French. I started chapter one and I THOUGHT I understood until I bought the English version. Yeah. I need to work hard at this.

The best part of this week has been my new GUCCI bag. All thanks to the worlds greatest Sister/non-Sister! You ROCK and I love you.

Mr. Wonderful has been so wonderful to me since the camping trip. Apparently, we're going to take ballroom dancing. I hope that he's still into it cause I know that in the end he will TOTALLY love it!
