I want a job.... well, I want money, and I need a job to get it.

Why can't I find another job? I know they don't magically appear from the sky, but... get real... there seems to be absolutely nothing in Worcester, especially if you're looking for temporary work. It doesn't help that I have no transportation, and no experience in anything but retail and a little Web stuff (and when everyone and their Dad styles themselves as "web designers", a minor amount of experience doesn't count for much). I really thought my lifeguard certification was going to help me out with finding one, too, but there doesn't seem to be much demand for those in Worcester, either. The only place I've been able to get a hold of all summer that was actually in need of a lifeguard was something like 20 miles from here. *sigh* I should be looking for work right now, but girlbody is attacking me, and I feel it takes all my energy just to stand upright. Calling up the numbers in want ads takes a lot out of me, and I just don't have anything to put into it today.

To top it all off, my paycheck still hasn't cleared my bank, so I still can't give my roommate the rent. I wrote her a check this morning for the $100 left in my bank account; hopefully, I'll be able to come through with the rest soon.
