Monday was my last day on the job as a Senior Game Advisor at GameStop. It feels so strange to be unemployed after always working at least two jobs. Looking back, it was a pretty fun time. I met a ton of people (some who will certainly be reading this). I’m so glad GameStop decided to hire me on that job hunt than Kay Jewelers or Chik-Fil-A. Not that those are terrible companies, I just love video games. The discount was minimal at GameStop, and most of my paycheck went to the purchase of games, but I always had a fun time talking to customers about games and being silly at work. Gamers like having fun, and I’m sure it showed if you ever waltzed into our store.
My company told me not to panic if I didn’t hear about placement until February 14th. Well, it’s now February 16th and still no word. I’m trying not to freak out but it is very, very hard. Everyday, I see people posting on the Facebook group for my company about where they got placed. Of course, most of them are getting placed where I want to be, in Kanagawa-ku. That’s making everything better. I already called to see what was happening, but of course, the answer was “they are behind.” Yes, but I am dying over here.
