Well I did hear back from E-Corps: Austin, and the interview went rather well. I admit I was expecting something a bit more professional; the interviewer was 15 minutes late, and sounded…Well…Like a normal person, as opposed to an interviewer, but that gave me the sense that the organization is very relaxed and casual, which is a good thing. It seemed I had more questions than the interviewer, but Maria tells me that’s a good thing, so I’m not too concerned…Still…I hope I didn’t sound arrogant when I asked if one of the lakes in the area he was telling me about was geothermal and he didn’t know what I meant by that.
Now, nothings final, by far…Still more paperwork to do, and I haven’t even committed to this 100% in my own mind, however…I really do want to do something different, I miss the South, I don’t want to find a new retail job for the winter till K&A opens again, sucking me back into the same cycle, and there’s some rather nice benefits to all of this. So I’m planning and budgeting for it at the moment heh. Already pricing bus tickets to Austin for a week in December to do some apartment shopping…The costs for round-trip tickets compare favorably with how much I’d spend in gas, etc for a long-ass road trip. Especially considering how much I loathe long-ass road trips. I’m also getting some paperwork from E-Corps in the mail anyday now re. housing options, so I’ll have a nice head start by December.
As for what little I own…I don’t want to rent a U-Haul, so I’m thinking I need to drop off craploads of boxes at Goodwill, give stuff away to my friends, and sell what I can.
Oh…By the way, I reconsidered my options…I’ll probably only go for the 6-month term. Probably. Unless it’s so spectacularly amazing that I never want to leave, which I doubt. So if (read: IF) I do go, I’ll be back in June. Not October, so do not lament, for I shall soon return and there shall be much rejoicing!!
