So, I have an advising appointment at ASU next Tuesday at 10:30 in the morning.  All my administrative business there will be handled including financial business, summer housing, scheduling classes for both Summer and Autumn semesters. These are all good things.

Still unemployed, and despite the ranting from my aunt and uncle I can't seem to make the half dozen current pending applications for job openings move any quicker, and I can't make the people who've turned me down take me.  Here's to hoping that I'm employed soon (really really hoping to get even an email from someone), or that by May I can be out of this situation and not faulted for being inexperienced in everything but academia.  I know that sounds hostile, but I really feel stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I have a huge list of restaurants that are hiring as well, and once this transit strike is over and bus routes are restored, I'm going to be canvassing them for jobs as well.  Ideally I want to work with food, but that's certainly no requirement considering I'm in no place to be picky.

My Arabic is improving, but I'm still suffering from the lack of class time.  I'm thinking about not having my credits transferred from Rio Salado to ASU so that I can retake the Arabic and circumvent their ban on taking classes more than once. :/  I'm not sure how I feel about just ignoring all the work I'm doing now, but I need that face-time interaction in basic Arabic or I know I'm just not going to have the academic foundation to succeed at higher level courses.  That's definitely something I'm going to be discussing with my advisor.
