Today is my first day at Logistic Systems, a software company in Missoula. So far I’ve done a bunch of paperwork, met a lot of people, read a bunch of guides and been to one meeting. I also discovered that one of my friends from MSU – Jeramy Parker – works here, as well, which is very cool.
On a completely different subject, John & Amanda’s wedding was a great time and I wish them all the best! Congratulations, you two crazy kids! Hope you’re having fun in Kauai this week…
I’m back in Missoula this morning – all I was really doing was waiting for (unlikely) return phone calls, and I can do that from anywhere. It’s nice to be home, if at least to wear some different clothes 😉
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 – 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 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…
