Administrivia: 26 May 2023

So I’m gonna get all All-About-Admin for a bit, sorry, but there will be Rory pics, so hopefully that will make up for it. And these won’t be new Rory pics, but they will be Rory pics I don’t see in the Rorysphere all that often and, in fact, screenshots I have taken mine ownself. Be that as it may.

I don’t know if I mentioned that my new job was a bit of a ticking time bomb. The first day I was there, they told us that we had an assessment coming up during training and that we had to pass that assessment in order to continue employment. And then they proceeded, over the following three weeks, to throw so much information at us that I didn’t think I was going to make it, honestly. I was sure I was going to fuck up. That feeling persisted until this morning, which was when we had the assessment.



So that’s that sorted. I have a job, and will for the foreseeable future, and it pays decently considering my lack of recent real experience, and it’s got decent benefits.

I still have to sort out the housing thing. I was so sure I had found a place, but the prospective landlady is REALLY WEIRD and acting “off” and, frankly, did the day I went to look at the apartment, too. I don’t know what is going on there but if this is how she acts when there is no lease, I don’t want to have to be on a lease with that going on. I am looking at renting a room for another week tomorrow, and we’ll see how that goes. If it goes well, I’ll be telling the rehousing charity lady I’m no longer interested.

Because at this point, I’m making enough that once I catch up some stuff and they stop charging me the hotel tax, I’ll be able to save up for my own place. Failing a real apartment, there’s ANOTHER extended-stay place that rents like a real apartment, and I’ll just hold out until they have one of the less expensive units available. One way or another I’ll get that housing expense down and then it’s REALLY my ballgame.

So basically this is my mood right now…

[Yes, here come the Rory pics. Thanks for your patience.]
