After a stretch of 6 days at the pharmacy in a row, I had enough. I decided to, just for the hell of it, throw out two job applications. Seeing as how I applied to 100 jobs and just got rude rejection letters last year, I figured it would take several months to even hear back from any of them.
I was wrong. The first application I sent invited me for an interview. Then they hired me. In less than two weeks. So I am now a part time library assistant in for the Oregon City library. I am kissing my pill-counting days goodbye. You know, forever.
I've also been volunteering at OMSI on their grant-writing team, and I've been having a great time at it.

What else? After gaining 8 pounds since January, I decided to start biking again. And I'm doing it in style. I recently purchased a red Electra cruiser and I've had fun taking it all over the city. My old bike, which needs a bit of work, had a basket on it; this bike didn't. An easy fix: Any square basket and some zip ties. I've found so many of life's problems can be solved with zip ties. Its not incredibly stable and/or weight bearing, but a few books, a purse or a bottle of water would fit nicely into this basket and leave my hands free for riding. And if it breaks I could probably buy six more for the cost of a real bike basket.
|Total cost: $1.99.|
