Sagging Spirits

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Despite my good report at the doctor's yesterday (I lost 2 more pounds!), I feel myself getting a little discouraged. I know I've been seriously looking for a job for only two weeks now, but I haven't gotten one interview out of all the applications I put in. I know I should be patient, especially in this economy. I'm finding it a little hard right now.

Helping Myself by Helping My Niece

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I have a 15-year-old niece who is having confidence and slight medical problems because of her age. I am starting to show her the ropes of living right through the use of Spark People. Hopefully, not only will she show improvements in her life, but I will get some added motivation by showing her.

    Well done Patty, it would have been so nice to get SP at an earlier age!

Time to Re-adjust Schedule Again

Monday, January 24, 2011

I get to re-create a schedule today. My long-term job ended a week ago, causing the first change in my schedule. Then I worked the NAIAS last week, and that REALLY changed my schedule. Lots of long hours made me not want to do much when I got home. Now that both jobs are over, I am again adjusting my schedule. I know I need to catch up on chores and errands. I want to exercise a little more. And the most important thing I have to do is find a job - which will again change my schedule. I do look forward to the challenge.

Jobless Again

Sunday, January 23, 2011

I finished my stint at the Auto Show. It was definitely a tiring job with long hours. But I did enjoy it. Now to start getting back to the grind of looking for work. It does have me a little nervous, but I'll be doing my best every day.

    I know the saying "find something you love to do and then find someone who will pay you to do it" is a very utopian idea, but are you looking in an area you are really interested in? Good luck.... I really feel for you.. I've been out of work many times over my career(s) and it is very hard on a person.... you have to give yourself permission to take looking for a job serious enough that you put the same number of hours into it that you would if you were working, because you are... working for you that is.
