    Life Goes On

    I've applied for more jobs than I can remember and didn't get a call or anything from potential employers. Oh, well. It's no big deal, I'll just try again and again.

    Not That Disappointed

    The issue was the time I listed on my application. I can re apply in 30 days and if I haven't found anything else I'll list the times they gave me. I'm trying only for part-time and I'm hoping that is the real reason I wasn't hired just in case I need to apply but I still have 10...
