Diary Entry #16 Pooling Water

So, I have an interview scheduled for Monday morning for a job at a Hotel that's close to my house! I believe it's for the front desk position, though it could be for the other two positions I put in for there...which were utility, and housekeeping. I'm really excited/nervous, as this is the first interview I've had in about a year. The good thing is that I almost always get a job, if I get an interview, though a couple of times I haven't. I did have a feeling I would get some sort of a call/message this weekend, but I second-guessed it enough to be surprised when it happened. It was only like a soft pressure on my soul, though, hardly even a blip on my radar. Almost unnoticeable.....
I did have a rather strange reaction to getting the news. After I got off the phone I kind of panicked on the inside, got really quite, and kind of re-planned the next couple of days so that I could arrive at the interview in some semblance of a nice outfit, and also mentally freaking out because I still have green streaks in my hair...though my SO says it's not too bad. (I think he's a little biased, though.)
The only thing I'm worried about, is if I get the housekeeping or utility jobs, but I don't think that I would be hired for the utility job, because it requires you to be able to lift a lot over your head. But I'm not sure about the other two. My background is in the customer service industry, though, so hopefully they wouldn't try to hire me for the housekeeping, but I don't know.
I suppose I could've asked, though I didn't expect to get that call around 5:30 this evening! lol I suppose that's what I get for putting in applications when I'm dead-tired at 3 in the morning.
Though I did only submit a cover letter with the job that I had ACTUALLY wanted...which was the Front Desk one....
I suppose I'll find out when I go in for the interview, or I could call them, and ask tomorrow, though I'm a little reluctant to do that, because it might seem like I was thinking about it as an afterthought or something.
ANYWAY...it's been so excruciatingly hot here. I feel like I have to get 12 hours of sleep to just get 8, or something along those lines. It's horrid. But yeah, that's pretty much all I have going on for here..except for the fact that I found a little toad outside my SO's workplace today (I went with him to work, and went outside to escape the air conditioning for a bit.), he was orange, and kind of slimy, but really cool! Maybe now I'll get warts.
(It was one of these...an "Eastern American Toad." )
They're thought to be good luck, according to Celtic and Chinese beliefs...and they also are thought to represent spiritual evolution, healing and opportunity. I'm very hopeful. He was very kind of placid when I held him. I kind of think that he knew that I wasn't going to hurt or eat him. Animals sometimes get that way about me.
Speaking of animal totems...for a couple of days straight, my black cat Nanashii would sleep with us, especially near me. I think she was trying to communicate a message of change to me, by being near me. (I know this sounds a little silly, but these are the signs as I've noticed them. I tend to look for meanings in mundane things.)
But yes, I suppose that's all I needed to write. Ciao!
