Bad Day update

Some friends have checked back in to see if I updated from the Bay Day post of Thursday. I would have, but I didn't feel like whining. So, instead, I opted not to post. Let me just note that Friday was actually worse than Thursday. I was actually despondent, a word I do not use lightly. Indeed, I actually, in the little cracks of time I could find, managed to get out 6-8 job applications to places all over the country -- Phoenix; San Diego; and at least one or two other places I can no longer recall. May have been an act of desperation, beats me. I am not going to examine it too deeply or too closely. Instead, I'm just going to roll with the punches and see what happens.

I think I'll know better by Monday end of day or Tuesday morning how its gonna shake out. Right now, I guess it could go either way.

Anyway, thanks for caring enough to check in and request an update.

Hey RP, whether despondent or desperate or some other word that starts with "d" (devilishly demented, deucedly determined, devastatingly debonaire, downright dashing), know that we're thinking of you! All the best for the coming week--hope that tomorrow you will be able to rejuvenate yourself with your rad family.

There's actually a lot to be said for just keeping your head down and making it through a day or two on occasion.

Hang in there.

You can whine. I do it regularly and with great skill, I might add.
To quote Wil Wheaton.. "There's a difference between saying-'I'm going to go take a dump in the woods' and 'Come with me while I take a dump in the woods'".

Okay.. Bad analogy, but you get the point, I'm sure.

Posted by: Rob at August 21, 2005 10:46 PM must have been really bad if you sent out resumes to other cities after just having purchased and moved into a new house. Yikes!

For the record, Columbus, Ohio is very nice in that it has some big city feel contained in a very manageably small city. Plus, you could get a house about 3 times the size of the one you just bought. ;-)
