Tomorrow I go in for a final interview.

It's been 4 months without a stable job.
1 of those months has been working as a delivery helper, working 10 hour shifts, 6-7 days a week without overtime. 10am to 8pm, with a 5 minute window to get slots for the next week on Wednesdays. I'm grateful for the work and money, but the stress of being able to lose a whole weeks worth of pay in 5 minutes and working long hours is ruining my mental state.

Tomorrow I meet with the owner and their resource manager.

Here's a prayer that it comes through okay for us.

[The platform operates by opening x many shifts for the next week. Priority 1 workers get first dibs, P2 get what's left, P3 gets the remainder. I'm P2, and the first in my area, so I get first dibs, but I'm still fighting everyone next to me for timeslots. If theres no slots left by the time I look, I'm SOL unless someone drops. It's very stressful waiting for timeslots to open. I do not get overtime as I'm a 1099 worker.]

I hope you know that my good vibes thinking is behind you in this all the way Nakis! All the very best of wishes. And, even if this doesn't work out this time, other opportunities may come from your diligence in your work. You are a tough cookie to crumble. Keep it up!
