interview

so i got an interview yesterday. i thought it went pretty well. the lady that interviewed me actually went to UH and got the same degree as i did so i feel like that it might put me at an advantage. (i hope!) i am suppose to know by the end of the week if i get a 2nd interview or not. i hope so! i know it might not work out especially on the first interview but i need something! i liked the sound of the job and the office looked cool and all. i hate waiting for things to happen.
i am still selling things online. for a week or so i was doing really well and i had sold a lot of stuff. but now things have pretty much stopped and someone even wants to return something because it doesn't "work". my description of the item was accurate and i guess i couldn't verify that it did work before i sent it because i haven't used it in years and i put that on the description. but i sent them a link to a help page for that item. we will see if they actually send it back or not.

class and online selling

so on thursday and friday i am taking a quickbooks class. at first i didn't really want to take it but mom and dad were really pressuring me to take. so now that i have signed up for it, it doesn't sound too bad. something to add to my resume and it is only a 2 day class. it is all day for 2 days but then i am done. if it goes well, i might take the 2nd quickbook classes. they aren't credit classes but they are continueing education classes. which makes more sense for me to take because i already have a degree and i just really need more skills. they aren't too expensive either. this one was $99. they all are about this much or less. i think it depends on the class and how long it is.
a week or 2 ago i was having a great run of selling things on ebay and amazon. i sold like 5-10 things within a couple of days. i was doing really great. now everything is dead. the only action i have had was someone bidding on my stuff and then asking to cancel. big pain but he did have a good reason to cancel. but the main reason he canceled was that he didn't read the description and then later found out it wasn't compatible with what he had. and then someone wanted to buy something for half the price that i had it listed but since it was a rare item, i was like i might go lower but not that low you know? i haven't heard from them sense. i am slowly going through my room and the stuff that i want to get rid of, i am listing on ebay and amazon to see if i can sell them before just giving them away. why not try to make some money off of them first right?
