#JusJoJan the 7th – Just the tempest

Back when I was in my late twenties, I lived in an apartment and supported myself by working in various offices for an agency.

I remember my agency called me late one afternoon and asked me to be at a new job first thing the next morning, as they needed someone desperately.

But when I woke up the next morning, I was so sick, I couldn’t even get out of bed to call them to tell them I couldn’t make it.

They didn’t call me again—I’d been effectively fired for not showing up on the first day.

Making me the tempest temp there ever was.

*ba-dum-tss!*

#JusJoJan the 6th – Anticipation

Just a quickie jot tonight since it’s late. I started a new editing job yesterday, and though I was anticipating its arrival, I had to struggle not to get behind today. Something had to give, and today, that thing was the blog.

Sorry! I’ll try to get to all the comments tomorrow and continue my recent new habit of trying to read a few posts a day.
