Well, I have...

... a job interview for 10am tomorrow at the day care center.

And bad, bad Alli, the only thing I can think is: "But what if I get the job and I can't go to Lola's on the 13th?"

Somebody please straighten out my priorities.

you call in sick and that's it ;) mhh...you can do that, right? ;)
Hey... I happen to have a conscience.

The upside is, the hours are from 6am to 6pm Monday through Friday. So I know I'll have my weekends free, and be home on Friday to catch the 8pm showing at the latest. Woohoo.
6am ............. this means getting up early ..... well luckily you are a morning person ;)

I did it once when I was at the movie theater... and it was to go to a baseball game that a friend had gotten tickets for for my birthday. No offense to Lola or Stargate, but that's in a different category altogether ;)

well imo nope :-p but is yours so ;) and don't think neither lola neither sg (can a show get offended?) are offended...the important is that you get MONEY :)
Yes... money is very important. I'm sure the show will understand ;)

Of course, I could be overly optimistic... I don't know yet that I'm going to get the job.

why wouldn't they give you the job???
Well, the biggest thing I'm worried about is that I can only work til the end of the summer. They may only want to hire people they know are going to be around for a while.

ohhhh....well, good luck!!!!! :)

That may be what they want, but if things there are anything like they are here, they know it's not what they're going to get. If you come across as reasonably mature and responsible and generally unlikely to drop the kids in a tree chipper, they'll take you for as long as they can get you, and at least try to plant the seeds of luring you back on your next break (if you're still going to be in school).
"But what if I get the job and I can't go to Lola's on the 13th?"

Say you have a previous commitment that you've put money towards and ask that it be counted against future vacation days.
I think your priorities are just fine. Lola's on the 13th is more important. Ask for a day off, simple as that. Just tell them you have special plans that day to go out of town. Most places understand and will be accomodating, especially if they want to hire you.
I know... I've just always had a problem with doing that. Even when I was getting the job at the threater, I felt almost guilty telling them I couldn't work the weekend of Gatecon. Like I shouldn't be asking for the job if I couldn't do 100% of the work. I'm weird.
As a friend, I wish you the best of luck, Alli. :)

As someone who works in the child day care industry....


NOOOOOOOOOO!! RUN AWAY!! RUN AWAY!!!


And I only work 11am - 5pm.
LOL.

Believe me, after spending last summer working at a movie theater... this would be heaven by comparison.
Yes, it does have it's moments(read:naptime). I just pray your kids are better behaved than my 24+ little demons. ;)
{{{sends good job vibes Alli's way}}}

I was a daycare teacher for about six months when I first moved to Columbus, until I had to cave and get something that paid better and had any bennies at all. It was such a great break from the office rat race.

*sigh* I miss baby hugs. I miss Mousercise. I miss the rocking chair. I miss watching language and motor skills develop.

I don't miss changing 20+ diapers and having to wash my hands 40+ times a day, but those weren't huge issues, and the rest of it rocked.
