it does. i try to be so positive all the time, but it's really hard sometimes. like, really really hard. it's hard to always be cheery and happy and positive-outlooky. it's worth it, though. it's really worth it. because when you behave positively, you attract that positivity to you.
you may have read one of my old blog posts where i discuss why i'm not so thrilled with my job. it's not that it's a bad job, but it's pretty much a bad job. i've been throwing resumes at everyone who will take one, including multiple locations of the same facility. and i happened to call one location while the office manager was calling applicants to set up interviews... and she asked me to come in for an interview the next day (today).
i think the interview went really well. i did a typing test thing, answered a bunch of related questions, and peed in a cup. thank goddess i actually had to pee a little.
it's just for a medicaid receptionist position. it's not a counselor position. i had also applied for an assessment/intake counselor position at a few locations of this facility, which would be a bit more in line with my future job - but i'll take what i can get. i'm really excited and really hope i get it. it's so much closer to my house, it's full time during the day (i won't have to work late like i do now), and it's in the type of facility that i would end up working in as an addiction counselor.
so fingers crossed. hopefully i won't have to drive mentally ill people who pee a little home in my car much longer.
