Planning a move is no small matter…and it doesn’t help when you receive conflicting messages from your future roommates. Long story, shortened: They want us to have some promise of a job when we get there. But how can we get a job if we are not there? The jobs seem to be available (at least from internet postings, we could apply for several and land one, no prob.) We just need to have a physical date when we can tell employers, “I’m here! Interview/hire me!”
On the one hand, the future co-housers wanted us there before winter…on the other…they want employment verification. I think what it might boil down to is, “Do you want the live able bodies [who can support themselves] or do you not?”
The clock is ticking way too loudly on the other side of the room.
So if you all could pray for us as we try to iron out the situation, I’d be really grateful. We are perfectly happy to throw our stuff in a truck and be there in two weeks…but somehow they cannot see that.
