First work day of the new year

So I’ve started my job hunt today.  Is there anything more stressful?

I should have been more focused and managed my time better because I’m in a bit of a crunch to find the right job.  We can safely rule out jobs where “writing” is a main qualification.  But I would love to be able to have persuasive writing skills AND a job that could pay me for it.

This afternoon I called a recruiter and am waiting to hear back from him.  Meanwhile I’m researching jobs and my eyeballs are spinning already.  Am setting up lunch dates and informational interviews.  Does anybody do “shadowing” any more?

While I’m trying to be as productive as I can, I’m trying not to burn out all at once.  I find I put all my energy into one thing, rather than manage it efficiently.

This morning I imagined my breathe as the universe giving my soul a hug.

I am proud to say that I have kept up the meditation and it is already day 4 of the new year.  By the end of 30 days I hope to have reached enlightenment through meditating and writing.  *just kidding

By the way, here’s a great John Oliver clip:
