Where am I going?

As you probably know, I was working for the Census for a while, then after work ran out, I was unemployed for about a month. I started working for a temp agency about 2 weeks ago, and am currently a greeter and "ups" counter at a car dealership. Basically, I greet customers who come onto the lot, make sure a salesperson helps them, and then I make sure the salesperson enters the customer's information into the computer. It's interesting work, and quiet, especially compared to home! lol And I'm getting paid $9.00 an hour to stand around most of the day. :)

The thing is, I'm looking for a permanent full time job. The dealership is fun for now, and the guys are all nice, but it's not what I want to do long-term. I've gotten discouraged about putting in applications, because I'm either not hearing back, or getting the "thanks, but no thanks," or the job isn't what I thought it would be. I applied at Kohl's about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and hadn't called to check on it, because the lady I interviewed with said it would be about 2 weeks before I heard back. So yesterday I called, and they hadn't even called my references yet! The guy I spoke to said that he would do that and call me back this Friday after 5. We'll see, I guess.

I also just applied at Hobby Lobby for a co-manager position. I think I could do a pretty good job at it, except that after looking more closely, I have to have previous management experience. So I doubt I will even get an email from them.

I just want to be able to do something with my life. I don't want to be stuck as a cashier forever, but that's all I really have experience with, and can't seem to get further ahead than that.
