83 Applications Later...

I got a job! And that's just from my Gmail, not including paper and online apps., and all those tedious interviews. Yeah, brutal. Job hunting in Portland is not for the faint of heart. Oh, but if you saw how brilliant the leaves look right now, you'd know it was worth it.

So what is this job, you say? Well, it's at a call center called Stream. Yeah, I know, talking on the phone is somewhere around the equivalent of an un-anesthetized visit to the orthodontist for me (probably if you're reading this, I owe you a call), but I must endure until something more suitable heads my way. And the environment is super chill, there's an X-Box in the lounge, and a bunch of computer nerds with awesome lateral lisps (think nerdy Neil from Family Guy)...well, I can wish.



So, I'll keep plugging away until Oblation Papers & Press asks me to head up their letterpress shop...yep, still wishing...

Hey, Congrats, Betsy! Well, just keep on with that until we get our online English teaching/ online print shop underway!

Does this mean you will have to move to India, were all the call centers are located?

No more J. Crew?

Yep, India it is...I wish! No, but I do have to answer the phone with an accent. It's all in the training. :)

And still keeping the Crew for now, I'll just work a couple shifts a week...they really only do about 4 hour shifts at a time anyways. So, just a little extra dough...to be immediately spent on discounted clothes.
