Looking at apartments again.
Landlords want you to have a job before they will lease to you. I don't want to get a job until I have an apartment lined up, because I want to get settled in and hopefully find a job close by wherever I end up living.
I have enough in my savings to live on for just under a year with absolutely ZERO income. If I tell potential landlords that, do you think they will be a little more lenient about the whole job thing? And if I get my dad to cosign, which he said he would?
Ideally I would like to end up with a combination of apartment, job, and online university where it all works out so that my job covers my living expenses and I pay for university out of my savings and my RESP.
How to go about getting this done?
Well I have an updated resumé now. Whether it's any good or not remains to be seen, but at least I have something to work from.
Guess I should do laundry, shave, and pluck my eyebrows tomorrow. Try to get back into the swing of things.
Still have a problem with references, though! I have no idea who to use :(
Alright. So. I need to update my resumé so that I can get a shit minimum wage job so I can get an apartment at some point in the near future.
Here is a basic summary of my life.
Education - graduated high school with honours in '07. Went to MTA from September of '07 until January of '09, when I had to leave because of the vasculitis.
Work - Managed the U-Pick for my dad every summer since I was thirteen except for '07 and '09. In '07 I worked at the café at the marsh, preparing food and operating the till.
THAT IS IT. Who on earth is going to hire me?! And... who am I supposed to put down as references?! My father? Hardly! The woman from the Marsh who hired me over two years ago? She's probably forgotten who I am, never mind whether or not I was a good worker.
Any brilliant ideas, O readers? (I know you're there, I can see my pageviews!)
