still no job. in september/october i had 5 interviews all in a row. and several phone interviews. i was feeling good. and then nothing. i'm still in the running for one of those original interviews (second interviews haven't been scheduled but I've been told I'm going to get one), but it's been pretty quiet since then and it's making me kind of regret taking the summer off even if it was a really good thing to do. but whatever. regrets, i have a few. and there's nothing i can do about that. in the meantime, i continue to apply to anything that isn't a million miles away and that will be challenging. i will persevere.
in the meantime, i've been keeping busy. mid-october was rhinebeck. this year was good. sometimes it's just too much. but this year i had a good time. didn't spend much money (no job) and took only instagram photos but whatever.
then about 10 days after coming back from rhinebeck, on a day i needed some cheering up ...
WE GOT KITTENS!!!
they are 4 months old and brother and sister. he's the black and white tuxedo cat. she's all black (and really hard to photograph. ) with very faint tabby striping that you can only see under certain lighting conditions. after messing around with various name combos (ie. ferris and jeannie bueller that just didn't feel right) i named them coco (as in chanel ) and lucas (pronounced the frenchie way "luka"). they'll probably only ever respond to "kitty" but whatever, at least the vet will be able to tell who is who.
we love them.
i adopted them from the Metrowest Humane Society in Ashland MA.
