She got a phone call from a news station inviting her to come in and interview. Getting the part time, paying hardly anything job would mean she would have to give up her stage manager position and not be able to take any more for the foreseeable future.
But it would hopefully lead to a better position at the station that would be more of what she wanted out of a job. That might be years away. In the meantime, she would be stuck in her mothers house, barely making ends meet, if at all.
The BFF didn't even know about the interview, because she hadn't gotten a chance to tell her. Whenever the BFF called it was to complain about her own life and not ask anything else.
If she did get this job, it would be putting a band-aid on a bullet hole, but she would have to accept it if it came. At this point she was considering applying for food stamps, as unemployment had still not gotten back to her, and she was getting desperate.
