I am running around like a fool. Double booked on interviews and running my ass off trying to get an employer to call my punk ass with a salary offer. Today was no exception. (See post below.)
Anyway, in addition to totally mangling my poor little feet by running around in stupid shoes, I am exhausting myself. I get up early to try and try to apply makeup in a way that somewhat conceals just how bedraggled and drag-ass I feel, so that it isn't readily apparent to any interviewers that I only got 4 hours of sleep the night before. And then I run from one office to the next, spending an hour or two at a time selling myself (metaphorically,) to people, hoping for some indication of interest, only to get home around 5 or 6 PM, cook and eat dinner, talk to my mom - usually to give her the rundown on the day, spend a few hours going through any new ads that were added to the assorted sites I check, apply for jobs that seem reasonable, rewording cover letters to suit the job description, altering my resume to emphasize my experience in areas they mentioned in the job description. If I'm lucky I catch a rerun of Law & Order. I post whatever I feel like you kids ought to know. I shower. I watch SportsCenter, catch up on my blog reading, I get my clothes in order for the next day, drag my ass into bed, get a few hours of sleep and get up to do it all again.
Unemployment is a hard ass job!
So now I'm going to get on with the rest of my day... Which if you were paying attention to the above list of activities means I'm going to hit the showers, catch a few highlight reels, do some ironing and call it a night.
Take care my darlings. And since you're probably reading this Wednesday morning, have a lovely day!
