popkin16: (so doing it)

I had an interview today! There was a sign by the time machine at work that a part-time position had open up in vision center.

I've always said that I'd want to transfer there if I had to choose, so on a whim I went to personnel to ask what hours a part-timer worker gets in that department. I get a guaranteed 32 hours right now and we're making ends meet (though we don't have much money to spare at the end of the month), so anything less than that and I'd have to pass. The woman who works in personnel said there was also a full-time position opening up, with $12.50 an hour, 40 hours a week. During my interview, I mentioned that I was open to full time. I also asked how many hours a part-timer gets, and they said on average 32 hours, but if certain quotas aren't met the manager can decrease my hours. So I'm not sure I want to risk that...

I think the interview went well? I'm not sure I can say it went great! but I did the best I could. We'll see how things play out!

I've been doing less fic reading lately (*GASP*) because I find myself spending hours playing Hollow Knight, a gorgeous 2D animated video game. I'm soooo not good at games (I spend more time watching Markiplier do Let's Plays if I'm interested in a game because he plays far better than I ever could) but I'm making pretty good progress at this game.

Tumblr has this thing where they like to write little posts about humans meeting aliens, and how weird humans would be to outside points of view. I have an "alien" tag for posts like that (you'll find some repeats, but sometimes people reblog a post and add new things to it). At the bottom left of the screen, you'll see 1, 2, etc. - click those and it'll take you to page 2. I bring this up because apparently someone on reddit is writing a piece of fiction along those lines, Humans Don't Make Good Pets. I haven't read HDMGP yet, but I did read the fiction that inspired it: The Kevin Jenkins Experience, which is only 6k and AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT. Check it out if you think it'd be something you're interested in!
