I was checking out kirsten kapur's most recent blog post where she is celebrating her 9th year of blogging and i thought to myself, "how many years ago did i start?"
PEOPLE! IT WAS 11 YEARS AGO!!! yep. April 16, 2004. don't go look. those first few years were crap. but wow. 11 years.
these days, i'm on instagram more than anything else. it's quick and easy and of the moment. i'm "of the moment" a lot which is really more of my temperment. and blogs require upkeep. redesign. flash. i want to change my banner and it's going to take at least an hour of searching for the photo i want, formatting it correctly and blah blah blah for me to change it, so i'm leaving it for now.
and since i'm still job hunting, i've stopped myself from posting, just in case future employers are looking at my online presence. if you are a future potential employer and are looking at my online presense, HI! HIRE ME!! BY THE WAY!! LOOK AT HOW TALENTED I AM! heh.
yes. the job search continues. i'm getting so much better at it, i have to tell you. i've easily applied to over 60 jobs. i've stopped using my fancy spreadsheet to chart my progress so it's just an estimate. and i've had dozens of phone interviews and in person interviews. at times it's soul crushing but again, less so now than it was when i started. but anyway, i am moving forth. and the more interviews i have, the more i am figuring out what i really want and valuing more what it is i have to offer. so in that respect, that's good because if i had found something sooner, i might have made the wrong career move.
so that's it. i don't have any crafty stuff to show. my days are spent looking for work, following online tutorials to keep my programming skills up, sketching and doodling and doing a lousy job of keeping house. no wonder i was such a disappointment to my mother. ;)
ELEVEN YEARS! wow.
