Seven days of blogging

Writing for seven days.  It definitely aint Shakespeare.  What I’ve written so far has been nothing.  No thought, no planning.  It’s a start, and I’ve given myself a month to get into the habit of writing.

There are plenty of resources out there to start writing more substantive work.

Time is so limited these days, that you’d like think I wouldn’t waste time on weak words.

Spending time with kids

Babysat today.  A three-year-old.  It’s so refreshing to hang with him.

Oh, and it rained today.  Off and on all day.

That is all.

Distracted much?

Hanging out with friends is good for me.  Left message with a job recruiter this morning and asked him to call me this afternoon.  It feels good to come hang out with someone while we do job-related stuff.
I woke up at 5am again this morning and got exhausted around 8:30 am, so went back to sleep for an hour and a half.  Hate when that happens, I would rather stay up and get more done.  But glad  I made it outside the house, despite the rain.
And happy I meditated this morning, despite going back to sleep.  But hey, did YOU meditate this morning? 😉
//Oops.  Got distracted.  I’m back now.//
Feeling awesome about myself!

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:
