This morning, I arrived to the Music Building, and went to go meet with Paula. We typically have our morning chats. She asked me how yesterday went and I told her that it went really well. I was glad that I was a part of the event, despite having to get up at 3:15am. She was glad all went well for me.
However, she did tell me that I was not the top candidate for the position in the Jazz Office. I said, “Oh okay.” She said, I have completely removed myself from any decision making. I wanted to let you know that they decided on a man named Frank, who is a Jazz enthusiast. He is going to be starting during the Jazz Seminar week. Do you still think you may want to stay on until Jazz week is over and get him trained, and show him the ropes? I said, “Yes of course.”I told her I was at peace with the decision and was honest with her. I only interviewed for that position, because it was a way in the door at Pitt. I didn’t really want it. She said, she knew that was the reason, but also said, if I were to apply for anything at the University in the Dietrich Arts and Sciences to let her know and she will make the appropriate phone calls. She said, they have to at least interview me, because I am honest, I take criticism well, and I want to learn how to be better. It was nice to hear.
Although, I had so much to do now. I was crazy busy all day. I had to meet with Amy at 2pm in her office and give her the money for the essential oil that I bought from her for my PMS which seemed to work. We chatted for a bit about my position, the situation, my resume, and Geri. I left after an hour, and I wasn’t really into going back to work. I was ready for the weekend, so I went up to Andrew’s floor in the cathedral and stopped to see him for a bit. I told him what Paula said, and he said that he is sorry I didn’t get it but wants me to send my resume over to all Temps immediately, so they can keep an eye out for me. I said, I definitely will. I know they won’t do anything until my assignment officially ends, and I don’t have an end date. I have a ball park time, but that is it. I don’t want him to get all crazy on me again. Like I am doing what I can I can’t do anything else. We have a really fun weekend planned. I am ready to get it started.
After work, we went home and got changed, then went Haunted Mini Golfing at the Windmill. It was a perfect October evening. We had so much fun. I took my annual Michael Myers picture. After golfing, we went to the Café with his parents. I had 3 pumpkin beers, and his mom had a bit too much. She was saying such mean things to his dad, and telling Andrew and I things that we didn’t even know had happened in their marriage, like how they almost got divorced! For once in our entire relationship, I felt bad for dad. After the Café, we went home and went to bed. We had a chiropractor appointment in the morning.
