How things went today

Well, I went to the interview. I waited about 3-4 hours and was the last one they called in. About 40 people were still after me that were still there. Good news- They loved me
Bad News- They already filled positions
Good news- The manager said to come back in two weeks and ask him if anyone quit. He said I could basically cut through the waiting time for another interview by coming in.
Anyways. After that I went to the pawnshop where I saw a violin for $100 So I picked it up and took it home. My roommate took me to the music store so we could buy new strings for it. The Lady realized there wasn't a bridge on it either. So it went from being $100 to about $160. Then the lady found a crack, of which I will NOT say yes to repairing. Its a practice violin and the only thing that little crack will do is make the sound not sound quite as crisp. Which is fine since for now its a learning violin. I'll have that crack fixed later but still. Violins are usually about $400 used so even if I got that fixed it wouldn't cost me as much as a normal used violin. Ah well, it'll be a new project. Part of why I think I bought it also is just I have this emotional spending thing going on. I haven't been as happy so I buy to make myself feel better. But as long as I know this is a problem I know I can try to avoid it.
Then I went to the other grocery store and picked out a few really cheap items along with the items I could buy for free with coupons. Unfortunately one of the coupons just didn't work. I'm not one to complain about these things, I mean I'll joke about it since I know cashiers get the ---- end of the stick when it comes to things not going the customer's way. So I was joking with the cashier about "I'm going to yell at you, since its obviously all your fault since you cursed my coupon so I'm going to yell at you" and so he laughs and is like "Well, Are you going to yell at me?" and I said "I don't feel like it" so he goes on "Well, if you ever need to you can find me here to come yell at some more. I'm here from 5-6days a week from this hour to this hour." I thought it was kinda funny he offered that info.
Anyways, that was my day.
