I submitted an application for a rental house on July 5. The owner was on vacation at the time, so I didn't expect to hear back right away. On July 11, I e-mailed him to follow up. The same day, he responded, saying he was in Nashville until Thursday and would have a definite answer for me today. It's almost 3 his time now, and I still haven't heard from him. Do I send him another follow up today or wait until Monday? I don't want to be a pain, but I'd really like to have an answer so I can do my paperwork for the new job and schedule our moving stuff, and if I'm not going to get it, I need to start looking for something else ASAP.
I personally would follow up. I would explain that I am not trying to be pushy but that I have a deadline and if this place isn't available then I need to continue looking. But being overly aggressive has always worked for me and I have always gotten the place I wanted because the landlord figured I wouldn't go away. LOL
All we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world: our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end.
The local public radio station does a Sunday night blues show from 6pm til past my bedtime. It is quacking awesome. The DJ is a total blues head, throwing the backgrounds of the songs or curating sets of an artist/theme/style. I know blues is a really niche genre, but the music and the thought behind the "mixtape" is excellent. Classic blues going back to Robert Johnson all the way to more contemporary shiz.
And Sunday night blues is a great way to ease out of the weekend (especially when you're dutifully bound to not watch GoT tonight)
When I was at a conference in Saratoga last week, a coworker and I toyed with the idea of seeing a SPAC show. Then we realized the only option while we were there was Nickelback. (We didn't go, in case you weren't sure)
I like to raise my hand for way too much, so on Thursday I have my first meeting for a newly formed Performance Evaluation Committee. For those of you in work environments with a fixed performance evaluation process, can you give me any feedback on yours? Do you particularly like or not like any part of the process? The timeline, the way it's submitted, the types of questions or the ways that they are asked, rating scales, its usability across departments, etc. Feel free to PM me or whatever. Thanks!
I try to say goodbye and I choke Try to walk away and I stumble Though I try to hide it, it's clear My world crumbles when you are not here Goodbye and I choke I try to walk away and I stumble Though I try to hide it, it's clear My world crumbles when you are not here
