So recently- my lack of a job seems to be helping my best friend more than she realizes. I can't really complain ( other than the lack of money in general*). I really enjoy her company and she's been needing me around her more and more. But I'm guessing that just means I'll run into a job when it's time? I have been trying- Its not like I'm not, I've been applying like crazy for the most part and I had a few interviews but nothing really's come up. I'm hoping in the next 5 days I get hired though... I really need to be able to pay rent and be able to eat at the same time.
So the other day my friend and I ate out at a pizza place down the road from her. She suddenly started to get dizzy and needed help to get back to her apartment- her roommate took off already so I helped carry her there. We called a few friends to see if they could drive her to the hospital but no one could. We ended up asking a pedi-cab (Bicycle cab*) to take us. The first one got angry and told us off. The next was quite honestly one of the nicest people we've ever met. She peddled 2 miles to the hospital for us, She had a few years experience and was really understanding and amazingly fast. I don't think if we drove we would've gotten there faster (She was in no condition to drive and I can't drive for beans*)
I basically took care of my friend all night while we were in the hospital.
I don't know... I'm just kinda hoping that some job turns up soon though, since the reason we didn't call an ambulance was because neither of us have a job and we don't have the money for it. The pedi-cab actually drove us for free...later we realized police would've taken us but it was kinda late for that when we realized that. I'm really hoping to find the pedicabber that helped us later so we can repay her in some way...
Sometimes people surprise you with their kindness... Anyways... Stuff... that's more or less what's been going on with me.
