The snow is falling on Braddock Avenue but it’s not sticking. I’ve just come from the break room at the Braddock Employment And Training Center. I’m sitting at my computer in the classroom trying to concentrate on my typing drills even though the radiators in my apartment banging all last night long kept me from sleeping more than an hour at a time. I like typing. I type over 40 wpm with no mistakes. I find typing relaxing.
I’m trying to decide whether or not to return the call of this temp agency that left me a voicemail Friday. To leave school for a couple of weeks’ employment is not worth it. If the agency can guarantee employment for a couple of months or more that’s one thing. I’ll start getting my social security in December; but it wouldn’t make sense to leave school just for a couple of weeks and then to come back.
