From the Interview v1.0 yesterday, I have Temp Assignment v1.1 tomorrow. (Yes, I do plan on keeping up a numbering system that coordinates all of the interviews with other interviews and jobs. In case you were wondering.) This temp assignment is at 8am in the Galleria area. Those of you that are familiar with Houston are aware that the Galleria is on 610, also referred to by me as “The Loop from Hell”. I have never been on 610 near the Galleria when there isn’t bad traffic. Seriously. Add to this the fact that I’m used to getting up at 7am – and tomorrow morning I have to leave before 7am. Because even though it should only be a 30 minute drive, I know it will be at least an hour if not more. Dear Lord, what was I thinking?
I should go put some toothpicks in my purse to help keep my eyes open by the afternoon. I’m going to wish I could just take a nap – I can see it now. Let’s just hope it’s a busy day – that will keep my focused. A girl can dream … ah, the joys of temping.
And yes, a 30 minute drive is considered “close” in Houston. This is Texas after all, and while we’re proud of how large our state is – is that a guy thing or what? – nothing, and I mean nothing, is close.
