Haven't been around for a while, but I have a good excuse (I think it is a good excuse) I have been looking for a job.
So far I have received one email telling me they will keep my resume on file and the rest of the time dodging every salesman and their dog on the phone. Seems once your resume is out there, it is no hold bars.
I mean really people, let's take a minute to think here. Why would I buy something? For God sakes I am looking for a job! Which means I do not have the money to buy what ever you are offering. Let's get real, OKAY!!!
Geez, the world seems to be filled with fools and I have a bad feeling I may be the leader. LOL!
I miss the old days, looking in the newspaper for a job and driving to the office to hand your resume in personally. It seems so impersonal now and every salesman in the world has your phone number.
I want a job in the business world. I am so burnt out from teaching and all the hours I had to put in on my own time. Teaching is not a forty hour work week, let me tell you. More like eighty.
Yes, I see the teaching positions being advertised, but guess what? They are all a distance from me. I do not want to be driving for an hour to get to my work place.
Thirty minutes top would be fantastic! Okay, maybe forty five with traffic.
Then I have been looking at medical coder jobs and wondering if I shouldn't go back to school to become certified in it. Questions, questions, questions!
I am good on a computer and learn quickly on it, so the job would fit me well. I'll have to think about it some more. I wish I could find on job training in some field, besides fast food.
My writing is in a slump, since I'm spending all my time looking for a job and I can't write when I am depressed, which I am at this moment. Damn!
Oh yeah, to change subject, I read an article recently about high fructose corn syrup and how it is making us all fat. I agreed with that, but should we lump regular sugar in with this? Before HFCS was added to our food, people used regular sugar and didn't have a weight problem unless they over indulged. I don't care if they break down the same way in the body. What I care about is HFCS damages the liver and makes you feel hungrier. The signals don't reach your brain that you are full.
The article said people really weren't eating more in general, but they were gaining weight. Go figure. I try not to buy anything with HFCS in it and use regular sugar sparingly. For a gallon of ice tea, I only use a quarter cup of sugar. Put the sugar in while the tea is hot and it tastes like you used more.
My walking is starting to pay off. I can climb stairs now without huffing and puffing. I sprint half and then walk the rest. I would have done a victory dance the first time I did this, but I didn't want the people at the mall thinking I was crazy. But inside I was dancing.
Isn't it amazing how the little things can bring such pleasure?
I seem to have reached a plateau in my weight loss, but I will keep plugging away. It is bound to start going down again. The last two weeks, I've stayed at the same weight, but I must admit I fell off the wagon a few times. Depression you know? Chocolate!!!
This is all I can complain about right now. OH, except Madonna showing her tits. Really, you would think she was old enough to know better. One tit looks like another tit and I'm sure they don't buy CDs because you bared your boobs. The music should be more important.
See you around the block.
