Well, it’s been 10 more days

Well, it’s been 10 more days, and I’m still pretty much no closer to being employed than I was the 1st of June. I’ve got another week or so here, and then I’m going back to MT to relax for a couple days and then head to Billings for John & Amanda Bender’s wedding. After that, who knows? Maybe I’ll get a cardboard sign and go stand in front of Walmart.

I’m back in Seattle this week

I’m back in Seattle this week – it’s good to be back! It’d be even better if I had a job, but… I had an enjoyable Tuesday; went to a career fair with Jason and had some great chinese food with Josh. My fortune cookie at dinner had two fortunes in it that were both the same – which I assume means I am meant to take the fortune twice as seriously – which said “Remember to share good fortune as well as bad with your friends.” I guess that’s a hint that I’m not keeping you all in the loop enough, so I’ll work on that.

I still don’t have any job offers, but my promising possibilities are not totally exhausted, and hopefully I drummed up some new ones at the job fair today as well as with all the resumes I sent out last week. So far all the interesting ones are in downtown Seattle and not the suburbs (that’s a good thing). When I’m not thinking about jobs I’ve been exploring my future neighborhood, West Seattle. I’ve already got an apartment building picked out and I’ve pinpointed at least 5 coffee shops in less than a quarter mile radius… 😉

Heading into the woods

Heading into the woods with the family this week to do some camping and forget that I’m unemployed. I still have some irons in the fire, but I am beginning to wonder just exactly how hot the fire is, whether it’s the right fire, whether I’m using the right kind of iron, and whether I should be wearing some sort of gloves to do metalwork…

Um, yeah, I’m still here.

Um, yeah, I’m still here. I know it’s been awhile – I’ve been busy with the whole job search thing. I’m back in Montana today after 2 weeks in Seattle chasing down gainful employment. So far no offers, but some promising leads. I had a great time with my cool relatives – thanks Tim, Carol, David, Michelle & Kris! I’ll be back out there on about the 9th of July, and I’ll make an effort to keep you all more up-to-date…
