Sorry, IF you keep plugging away, you will find something...hell, I landed this gig by sending in like 3 resumes...it got noticed, that is all that matters; I can pretty much nail an interview; getting one is the tough part.

I hope it all goes as planned. Good luck!

Been a long 48 HRS, that is why no reply; but after some major bumps in the road (WOW, a $2 car part can cause a world of havoc!) it all seems to be coming together...I hit the office in the mroning! I am enjoying my last few HRS of broke-ass freedom!

Congratulations, dear!

Yeah, I'll admit, I need to get my ass in gear. The pursuit is the toughest part.

Haha, funny guys. I meant to get a job this summer, but that never happened, and now that school is about to start again I can't. So much for my dreams of money.

Dude, find a weekend gig, heck, I would start by looking at video stores, think about this: work weekends at a video store and on top of a paycheck, (allbeit a small one, a paycheck never the less) you get free movie rentals...from where I sit, that is a decent perk as perks go in entry level jobs...beats a free BigMac meal every day...it may be free, but it gets disgusting quick...anyway, enough of that.

Just think outside the box, remember, you have evenings and weekends, even going to school full time (HS or College) a 20 hour job is not too hard to balance.

Yeah I've had a job before. The first semester of the year is hard though. I'm involved in marching band from August to October and then after marching band is done pep band starts for basketball. Then there is also jazz band, school theater productions, volunteer programs, and homework. I would totally work on Sundays, but my grandparents don't want me to for religious purposes. I would love to have a job for Saturdays and then for a few hours during the week but since I live near a college campus there is a lot of competition in the job market, and employers look for availability the most and I just don't have that.

You could easily get a gig at a retail store with those kind of hours. When I worked for Hot Topic, two four hour shifts was what I often got. When summer rolls around, they'll give you more. The peak sales periods are in the summer, when parents are buying "back to school" stuff for their kids, and during November to December. Those are the periods when you'll score extra hours. I agree, you should still look into getting a job. A little money is better than no money.

What kind of parent buys back-to-school stuff for their kid at Hot Topic? Actually, what kind of parent buys ANYTHING at Hot Topic?

A parent who is smart enough to recognize and determine what clothes are appropriate for school. I worked there, and I met parents with your mindset. Let me clear things up: we are not a dirty, Satanic store. We sell plenty of school friendly attire. We are also selling supplies for school, like paper, notebooks, bookbags, and binders. It's up to the parents to be aware and discretionary enough to know what's right for school. Parents should also allow their kids to wear stuff they like, to a point. Hot Topic, as well as other stores, are more than happy to assist any parent in the buying process. If they need help, we here for them. We're not going to goad parents into buying a product of ours that is obviously inappropriate for school. I understand if you have bad feelings about what Hot Topic represents: rebellion, individuality, loudness, deviation. These are good things when toned down with good old common sense. Hot Topic offers more than just dark, Gothic merchandise, and if you keep an open mind, I invite you to come into a store and find out for yourself.

Parents of kids who think rebelling against the society involves purchasing corporate-made, low quality crap that vaguely resembles terrible fashions of the 70's and 90's/

Speaking of which, apparently the 90's is now making a comeback: http://hotbisexualmodel.blogspot.com...ing-ideas.html

hehehe....reminds me of good ole days of HS, when kids had jeans so baggy that they drug on the floor like a wedding gown, some of the only fond memories of the bullies I have involve stepping on the excess, then watching them fall, then helping them up and makeing some con-decending comment like "that wouldnt happen if your cloths fit"...it was hilarious! the rich, "in crowd" was getting picked on, taking the attention off us 80lb, 4ft nerds...(I an now 6FT and a heafty 220, my what a couple of years can do)

I preferred the "weird girls" because they could have a conversation without saying "like" every 2 seconds, and could talk about something other than crappy TV, locker room gossip, and teachers they hate...

It is. Makes life a whole lot easier. Plus there is the added fact that we like to heckle Windoze resellers. Ever gone to a Wal-Mart and asked the sales associates where the real computers are? Good fun!!

Mike: Wow! That does sound fun! Not only that, but you can go to Macworld together, spend a week in Cupertino, go to an Apple Store hand in hand... it's all so romantic!!!

a_greer: Umm... I don't know you well enough... I do want to marry a Mac Geek though. I told my sister about Metallica on iTunes, she and her husband are big fans. She uses a PC, but I finally got her to install iTunes on it.

All we need now is AC/DC; but untill we get it, I guess these guys will just have to do.

Oh.. you're a hoot!
I'm more into Electronic music, namely Industrial and Synthpop. I only like a few of Metallica's songs, and I'm not very into AC/DC... sorry to break your heart.

I haven't quite gotten her to the point of a MacWorld being like a "second honeymoon" yet.... But I am working on that!!

It was kinda interesting actually. She was a Windoze user before she met me. The only reason why she held out for so long is that she did here Genealogy work in Family Tree Maker. Once I showed her Reunion, it was easy street at that point. Now she has become enlightened, and acts as if she was always that way...
