I guess I didn't need to worry about which option to choose. Power Direct didn't hire me. The interviewer said that my 2006 conviction was too recent to overlook. Bummer. But I knew that before I went. I still hoped, I don't know why.
The only good thing about them turning me down was that it reinforced my awareness of the need to take care of that Weed and Seed conviction. I think my boyfriend realizes it, too. He'll probably give me the money that I need to take care of it now. I hate that I have to strip him of resources to get myself back on my feet but if I don't, I'll be a drag on him forever. I feel horribly guilty about him. Consequences again.
