Pretty good day so far. :)

First, it wasn't so nice though. Got a call from this person I talked about yesterday, who called while I was in Cologne. And I thought she'd invite me to an interview or something, but nope. She said that she liked that I sent her an unsolicited application, but she had no open position at the moment. But she called to tell me that she also runs a business who helps at writing applications, like in a course, and she said that she thinks that would be something for me. My CV was good, but the letter of application could need some more kick, or something. I said that I already did something like this at the job center and she immediately said that they don't know anything real about this kind of stuff. And I thought, yeah right, but you do, huh? Then right away, she mentioned I could pay it with a voucher of procuration(?) that I got from the job center. Basically, this voucher means that if I took the help from a private job agent and they got me a job, they'd get like 2,000 Euros from the job center (which is just ridiculous if you ask me. The job center could save that money if they did more themselves). Anyway, I said I'd think about it.

Honestly, I was a bit crushed when I hung up. I really thought that she would offer me a job, or at least an interview! But now the good part - like half an hour later, the phone rang again, and it was a security company I applied to (Taking over the phone in the night shift) and they wanted to talk to me in person. I went there twenty minutes later, it's in a village only 5 km from where I live (funny: it's across the house my best friend Amalia lived in before she moved to France!) and yeah, I had an interview. It was really good I think, I felt good while being there. They were all really nice and the boss' wife showed me around, explained what I'd have to do. And it's really not much at all. Just sitting next to the phone for eight hours, from 10 pm to 6 am (no problem for me I think, I'm a night person anyway). She even said, they don't care what I do, if I read or took my laptop with me and watched movies, as long as I stay with the phone. I think I can manage that! ;) And I know this company, too, as they already worked for us before and secured one of our properties. So, in the end I said that I'd really like to work there and she said that she's confident, but as there are other applicants, she has to talk to her husband first, and she wants to call on Friday at the latest. That would be really, really great!! :)

I can't really explain this feeling, but there I felt immediately better than with this taxi company. Plus, they want to pay more, for less work. :P But it's not just that. It's really just a feeling, like that might be better for me, so I'd definitely do it, 100%, if they called and said I could start asap. :D

So really, fingers crossed now! :D

I'm dl Lost now and will finally watch it afterwards. Didn't manage it last night. All of a sudden it was midnight and I was tired. I think I'm still a bit exhausted from the weekend. Didn't get much sleep then. ;) Also have to watch Glee (I think even from last week, too), as well as the final episode of The Pacific.

Tonight, I'll be in Frankfurt at the Jason Manns concert. Already saw him at Asylum Europe but I thought, hell, why not again? ;) Will be great to see him again. I kinda miss the guys from the weekend already.
