Job interview and new tenantI recently applied for a job at a warehouse in a city called Skovlunde, which is about an hour away from where I currently live. Yesterday, I was minding my own business by watching The Big Fat Quiz (a real show), when I got an email. The headline read "Job interview", which made me pause the video I was watching and sit up straight.
It was from the company I had applied for. They want to see me for a job interview on Wednesday at noon.
Oh boy, here we go! The chance for me to get a full time job!
I have a lot of experience at warehouses, and it's one of the few industries I feel most at home in. That might sound weird, but it's true. I love walking the aisles of a warehouse, picking orders for people. The last warehouse I was at was a dream to be at. Nice coworkers, good food and the hours weren't bad. The salary wasn't bad either. We're talking the equivalent of $1000 every two weeks.. Sadly I wasn't going to be able to stay there, since it was through a temp agency. But not I have the chance to be employed full time in a warehouse, picking orders for people, while getting a decent salary as well. On average, the monthly salary for a warehouse employee here in Denmark is the equivalent of $3533 per month, depending on how long you've been there, the hours you work, if you work day or night and how much experience you have. I have pretty extensive experience, so hopefully I will earn a salary where I can maintain my current lifestyle, which isn't that expensive. So far, I have spent the equivalent of $232,37 on food and drinks for the entire month of May. I am not going to spend any more on food at the moment, because my freezer is PACKED. No, seriously.. I can't get any more in it. I will have to empty it out before I buy more food.
Speaking of emptying out.. One of the tenants here moved out the day before yesterday. I had the feeling that she had moved, because one day she just stopped coming home. She had also moved herself from the official house Facebook group. Yes, we have that here. It's a good way of relaying information to other people. Anyway.. She is back in her home country, because she had to sort some stuff out, so she had her New Zealand friend come and pick up the stuff she had here. Nice guy. Anyway, he forgot some things, so I wrote her and said "Your friend forgot these things", which I was told to keep. So now I am the proud owner of some tiger slippers that are way to small for me, and a bathroom scale. I am not sure what size those slippers are, but I know she has super tiny feet, so I am definitely not sure that I will be able to fit in them. I will try, but no high hopes. I also said that I hoped it wasn't because of any of us in the house, that she moved out. I think it's because she experienced the death in the house back in February. I think she never really felt comfortable living here after experiencing that. It was a brutal experience. She just moved in, and then someone dies. It can knock out even the best of us.
Other things that happened last week: I might be sick again. It's weird.. During the day, I feel fine, but when it comes to sleeping, I get extremely uncomfortable. Sometimes my heart just races, while other times there's nothing. It might just be something that passes by itself, but if it continues, I will contact my doctor. I should have contacted her sooner, but I don't want to sound like a hypochondriac.. "Hi, yes my heart is racing and I have an upset stomach help please".. If I have to go to the doctor, it has to be so severe that I fear for my health. However, I am not at that stage yet. We'll see what happens.
For now, I will make sure to get the job tomorrow.
