things that have happened recently

03 Jun

The biggest problem that I have noticed in blogging, is that an enormous amount of things happens every day, and I do not want to be that obnoxious blogger that posts five or eight times per day because OMG U GUYZ DONT U WANT 2 HEAR ABOUT ME ALL THE TIEEM???/

So rather than devoting several retroactive blog posts to the color of my oatmeal or the daily viscosity of my shampoo, I figure I’ll just give you all a bulleted list of things that I would blog about, had I the time (or the inclination).

  • I have finally ordered a mini camcorder, after years of wanting one and hemming and hawing about the price. Vlogging will ensue after the camcorder arrives and I figure out the magic of moving pictures.
  • I have spent the last few days playing with my niece, Bella, who holds the title Cutest Baby in the Galaxy. She is a year and a half old, and is learning her words rather quickly. She knows Mama and Dada, and refers to Grandma and Grandpa as Mamba and Bumpa. I am J followed by nearly any combination of letters forming a single syllable. Popular favorites are Jep, Jet, Jeff, and just good old fashioned Jeuhhhh. Taylor is referred to with a terrified stare followed by hiding. Bella is not so used to tall people.
  • Today at an Arby’s Taylor and I were pseudo-assaulted by a tiny old woman in a turquoise dress, who leapt at us as we walked in and screeched, “YOU GET FREE STUFF ON WEDNESDAYS!” and thrusting a pile of straws and napkins into our hands. Apparently she worked there. An Arby’s namebadge with the name ‘Susan’ was pinned to her upper shoulderblade.
  • I am being spoiled by homecooked meals.
  • Taylor and I visited more apartments today than we could shake a stick at. We are applying to…four, I think, but there is a great deal of competition. Being that we are moving jobless to a new town and trying to find a place to live, the situation makes me a bit nervous.
  • Resume building is going okay. I have built a second draft, and sent it off to my Editors, who are providing me with deliciously helpful advice. By the time this is finished, I should be able to leave my home of business people and Kal-El myself into the job market, becoming a Superperson with my resume. My kryptonite? The krappy job market.
  • I feel the need to reiterate the homecooked meals. Tonight I had chicken-fried steak.
  • On Sunday I have the first flight in like, six years that doesn’t leave at an ungodly hour.
  • I finally have the time to respond to comments again!  Hoo-ah!  I am sorry for the prolonged absence in my comments sections.  I read and adore every single one, and it always makes my day.  My ego does love to be stroked.  So if you leave me a comment I will one hundred percent respond to you.
  • That said, I’m beginning to do the active job hunt. Does anybody have good ideas on the best way to hunt for jobs in a sore market?

    Hmm I’d say put out the word to your network that you’re job-hunting. If someone works for a company who’s hiring but hasn’t advertised the position, it’s a great foot in the door. Good luck with everything!

      That’s a good thought! My brother in law is a manager at a Wells Fargo and he may be able to do some hunting for me!

      Thanks, Lisa!

    Good luck with finding an apartment!! Getting your first place together is an exciting time, just wait until you buy a house though! A little more excitement and a little more nervousness, but it is definitely AWESOME. 🙂
