Thankyou MS for Reminding Me That My Fine Motor Skills Suck.

A couple things I want to talk about today but first let me explain the above picture. So on my last post I mentioned I had an issue with my last job interview that left me rather unhappy. Apparently the computer scheduled an interview for me when it was not supposed to or at least that’s what the lady told me. So I showed up ready to go and there was no one there (apparently) to interview me. I was told that the managers would be going through applications to choose candidates this week for a seasonal position and I should hear back from them soon. I have a friend who works for Sears (which is where I had the interview) and he told me that the interview process does not work that way, that the computer chooses the interviews to schedule and then the managers choose from that group. So I got ripped off if you ask me. Why? Not sure, but I probably won’t disclose my MS on my next application. Anyways, I missed another interview due to my phone that decided to tell me I missed a call and had a new voice mail about 3 days after it was actually left. Thanks AT&T! So I have not been in a good mood. I have 90 cents in the bank and I am tired of not moving anywhere in life. So I decided to re-apply to become a contributor on a stock photography website and I finally got in with them with this image. So hopefully once the upload process is done I can start making a few bucks here and there shooting some stock images.

Moving on,  yesterday Multiple Sclerosis decided I needed a reminder that my hands don’t work teh way they used to. I took my Dad’s Mustang down to my friends house to change the oil (I don’t have jack stands). Our friend Daniella was over because we were all going to go on a “night hike” up in Forest Falls after my friends girlfriend got home. So I am under the car and I already drained the oil into a pan, I could tell my fingers were a little shaky taking out the bolt but so far so good. When it came to removing the oil filter (a round cylinder a bit bigger then your fist full of oil) disaster struck. I lost my grip of the object and dropped it into the tub of hot oil. SPLASH! All over my face, shirt, and arms and RIGHT IN THE EYE! Awesome… So after I wiped everything off I finished the job and proceeded to further wash out my eye of old oil… Thanks MS, now I’m going to get eye cancer…

Of course I played it off like a stupid accident at first because I had not yet told my friend Daniella about my MS but later on I decided to just tell her what was up. Luckily it didn’t scare her off haha! We finally went on our little night hike in Forest Falls, didn’t get eaten by bears, and then stared up at the stars for a while. Man I want to live up there like right now! Sure would be nice to have a job or at least a real interview!

    Goodness (or should that be badness?) Matt, not a happy collection of happenings for you. The 'whether or not to be honest on an application form' dilemma is a toughie, you have to be honest with yourself, yet deny to others in order to get on. Yet another sign that the 'powers' NEED to open their minds a bit more.

    Great that you told your friend about the M.S. though, jobs can come and go but true friends…..we all need those!!
