Well, some how I ended up getting two jobs today. The first job was as a "Public Safety Officer" at the St. Louis Zoo. This was job #1. It sounded/would be cool but--it's a city job. So the hours were very small and the pay was less than $8. Still, I figured any money coming in was better than no money, so when I was offered I said I would take it.
But, I really hoped that job #2 would come through for me. Why? Well besides being full time, and having benefits, and being more of a supervisory position--it paid better. I didn't think I was going to hear back from them today (if ever really) but I just got the call--they finished their interviews and they wanted me. So I said yes. It's weird, but I'm going to be working at UMSL (I can't believe I now work for my school). I'm going to basically be in charge of the evening security at the Athletics Building (where I used to work out). I'll have part-time guards and student-workers under me. I get Friday and Sunday off (with Saturday being a morning/day shift).
If I had to work security, this is the kind of job I'd want to have. Today has been a whirl-wind for me. Somehow I pulled it off, though. I'm happy because I'll have insurance and enough money to pull my weight with the bills. Today was a good day.
