the next day follow-up to the job hunt continues

I rose out of bed about 6:40 this morning. I ate some bread, drank some water, showered, dressed, left the apartment about 7:15, and drove to the place I told I would deliver for during the Valentine’s Day holiday rush.
At 8:00, the ten of us that showed up filled out some information, had a brief […]

the job hunt continues

Today marks the fourth week since I left the corporate hell where I dedicated two and a half years of my work life. Fortunately, it seems that the vacation is coming to an end because the job offers are finally coming together.

Hop in my car.
Drive to work.
Work.
Drink a soda and eat a candy bar for brunch.
Work more than eight […]

the double-double permanently alters your soul

This four-day weekend was much needed.
Yesterday went well. Thanksgiving dinner was a success. The turkey that Mary carefully basted throughout its cooking time turned out excellent. We had way more food than the stomachs could hold, but everyone enjoyed the meal.
On Friday, I was sort of lazy but did some productive things here and there […]
