Yesterday, the first real snow of the year fell in the city. This morning the radio announcer said the high would be 36 degrees with a wind chill factor in the twenties. It’s time to break out my winter coat, cloth hat and golves.
I haven’t been to the Braddock Employment And Training Center since Wednesday when I called off and went downtown to scope out the building my job interview was held in. Thursday was the interview and Friday I went to the VA Hospital to see why my right arm is always bothering me. The hospital is going to schedule me to see a neurologist. Well, at least now I know I didn’t have a stroke.
I’m beginning to feel like a failure at BEATC. Several students have gotten jobs since I’ve been there and I’ve been there since January. The course is only suppose to be six months, learning MS Office and data entry.
Of course, the economy is not helping and now a possible bus drivers strike on December 1st just makes looking for a job that much tougher.
