I'm still waiting to hear about a job

This is getting ridiculous. It seems like every other week I'm interviewing for another job. My coworkers said that I'm lucky because at least that means that the hiring manager thinks I'm a viable candidate. It's starting to get really old though. Especially since I don't know why I'm not getting the job.

I just wish there was a way I could get some feedback.

I'm looking for a second job

I really need some extra cash right now. My utility bills are slowly creeping upward while my paycheck is staying the same. I'm almost to the point where I spending the money that supposed to go into savings which is not a good thing.

There are several jobs that I would like to do that I think I would be good at. I just got my hair cut and that made me think about going to Cosmetology school in Colorado or at least a school here locally. Regency has over 30 campuses in 9 states which is great considering they started with only 2 locations in Minnesota back in 1992. The people that graduate from their program are sought after and they have a placement program which would work for me.

I'm sure there are a ton of local salons that would be happy to have a person dedicated to working every Saturday. It's something for me to seriously consider.

Competing for jobs really stinks

Not when it's against strangers though. I'm talking about when you're competing against coworkers and/or friends like I'm doing right now. There are 3 people from my area and 1 person from down the hall that all had interviews for 1 job. The question though is how do they decide between the 4 of us? We all have similar skills and similar backgrounds. Although I know that I have a skill set that 2 of them don't have and I know the other candidate is really strong in a area where the 3 of us lack.

I haven't even considered that they still have more people to interview. The next few weeks should be very interesting to say the least.

I totally wasted my income tax refund

Ughhh I am so disgusted with myself too. I know I had things that I needed to do with that money and things that I could have done. I wanted to go on a short vacation this year but I don't have anyone to go with. My friend that I usually travel with wants to go back to a place that we've been at least 5 times. I am so not interested in going there again. Especially since there are so many other places to go.

Hopefully I'll get my hands on some money that I can eventually put to good use instead of having a handful of nothing to show for it.
