When it rains, it pours.

job search status: I turned in applications to Anchor Blue and Barnes & Noble. Both places basically said that they're not hiring at the moment.

I went to school to turn in a bunch of forms for financial aid. I was supposed to go earlier but they needed a copy of my ID, which I didn't have until yesterday. The lady at the counter told me I was disqualified for aid because I did so poorly and dropped so many classes in the 2002 Spring semester, the last time I was there. The upside is that if I finish two out of the three courses I'm taking now and do it with a 2.0 GPA or higher, I'll be qualified for aid the next semester. But for now, I get nothing.

I've been seeing postings around school for a job in the computer labs. I called the number on the posting, but no one answered. After some "investigation" I found out that I needed to seek out a guy named Gabriel who was supposedly in charge of all the computer labs. I went to his office but he was not there. I did an exhaustive search for this elusive "Gabriel," but he was nowhere to be found. I did score an application for the job, however. Since it's Labor Day weekend, I won't turn it in 'til Tuesday. If I'm still alive by then.
