Excuses excuses [Dec. 31st, 2012|05:44 am]
So yeah, still haven't really started my job search, but I'm resolved to get on it soon. I was feeling shitty yesterday, and slept all day today as well. I actually had a few listings I had found on craigslist, and I was about to send off a resume when I realized something. My new phone is supposed to come in the mail tomorrow. I do currently have a phone, but it would make more sense to put down my new number on any current job applications. Not to mention the fact that I get no reception in my apartment with my current phone. I can send texts and receive emails on it, but that's about it. If anyone tries to call me the phone doesn't even ring, just goes straight to voicemail. If I try to call anyone I have to walk all the way out to the front of the building just to be sure the call wont drop unexpectedly. The new phone is supposed to come by 3pm today, and I'll probably only have just enough time to set it up before I need to go to bed in order to be rested for work. I'm going to spend the time between now and then searching for more job listings at least. If I can bookmark a couple of listings I'll feel like my time off from work wasn't a complete waste. The only other thing I managed to do was drive across town to target and buy a space heater for my shitty apartment. The space heater is great, but this building is so old that the room can't hold heat well. According to the thermometer on the space heater the highest it can get the room up to is 72 degrees. That's pretty fucking terrible considering the the same space heater could heat a similarly sized room up to 85 when when I lived at my parents place. I guess it doesn't really matter though. The building heat seems to run fine during the day. It's only at night when I seems to drop down dramatically. You see, this building doesn't have individual heating for each apartment. The building was built like 100 years ago, and wasn't originally built as an apartment complex. It's only got one furnace for the entire building. The building is small, so it's not like there's a lot to heat, but it doesn't seem to hold heat very well. The fact that my room is on the lower level and facing an alley probably doesn't help. I don't get much sunlight in here, even with the blinds open. It will probably be significantly cooler in here during the summer though. Then I'll just have to go out and spend another 50 bucks on a mini air conditioner that will barely do anything haha.
