The Grind is Upon Me

Resume is done.  Applying for jobs has begun.  Yuck, yuck, and more yuck.  I can't hate this process any more.  I think I have an abnormal level of anxiety when it comes to job searching and being interviewed than most people.  Maybe I haven't had enough practice, since I've probably had no more than 10 interviews in my life.

I'm not good at thinking on the fly, and that's pretty much what an interview is chopped full of - the unknown.  I can answer their questions wonderfully...an hour later.  I'm not a lingo kind of person.  I don't spout off industry terminology and really find people who do kind of annoying and showy.  I was raised to absolutely positively not brag about oneself, and although I don't necessarily agree with that, it's hard to change.

I need some positive things to focus on today.  I think I'll take a break from job crap and get things ready for our friends who are coming to town this weekend - yay!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't realize you were looking for a job! I can't wait to hear about it. Hopefully, your selections are far better than in Midland. Also, this picture will never get old. It is one of my most favorite pictures!!!
