It’s the end of the month, and depending on the company — in my experience, there are those who pay on the 5th and 20th instead — one works for a worker can expect to get their salary today. That means long lines at ATM machines as well as banks as people either cash out their payment checks, or deposit their well-earned (I’d hope!) money into their savings accounts.
As for me, today is when my folks are supposed to deposit a little bit of money into my savings account to help with the household expenses. I appreciate the effort, but it only underscores the feeling that I’m technically no longer pulling my weight, so to speak, in our household. It’s frustrating really, since I still have to pay my half of the month’s household-related bills.
Whoops, its our new President’s inauguration today, which means its a holiday. Which means that no banks will be open. Ack.
At least this time around — according to JobStreet anyway — I’m actually ‘Under Consideration’ by some of the companies I sent resumes to. There’s a huge difference between that and being hired though, so all I can do is wait at this point.
And it’s not like I don’t things to do while I wait. Schoolwork aside, I’ve still managed to keep pace with my seasonal anime watching. The Spring 2010 season was really a mixed bag, though there were a few shows I found worth the time I invested in them — Working!! was especially endearing (and a surprise hit for bloggers who initially brushed it off at the start of the season), though I’ve always been fond of slice-of-life comedies to begin with. Add me to one of those who want it to get a season season (as it still has four-odd volumes of material yet untapped).
That’s pretty much it for my end-of-the-month musings. I wonder what the next month holds for me, hmm?
