Time to be More Proactive

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

It's time to do some thinking and planning on my part to make my life more interesting and fulfilling and less depressing. I'm starting to get in a rut and want to get out of it before I get stuck. I hate calling in the troops to help me get out when I know I have the ability to do it myself.

So, I'm going to read my SP notebook and some motivational articles. Then, I'm going to plan what I'm going to do each day to improve not only myself, but those people and places around me. It may take me a couple days to get a definitive plan, but I'll get there.

    I need to take your advice... I've let myself get down in the dumps again too. Getting a lay-off notice pkg. in the mail yesterday didn't help. Then the superintendent sent an email, apologizing for all the probationary teachers getting the lay-off notice, it was their mistake... doesn't help you feel much better. They don't know who or how many or when they can even let us know, but there will be lots!!! Hard to live with that over your head....How's your job situation going?

Another Week Begins

Monday, May 02, 2011

It's the start of another week. I have high hopes for good things to happen this week. At least, I want to feel like I have accomplished something. I believe I will succeed.

The weather forecasters are predicting rain for northern Alabama. This is the only thing that I am concerned with this morning. My daughter is still without power and sitting in a relatively new beautiful house with tarp on the roof where the shingles have come off. A hard rain will only cause more damage. I'm saying extra prayers for her.

Emotions are like the Weather

Sunday, May 01, 2011

The day started and will end with rain. So, it's just a cloudy, dreary, boring day. My emotions seem to be running with the weather: I'm worrying about a few things today that I really don't have much control over. I am working on getting out of that mood: a nice long walk may do the trick.

    Just remember - the gray weather and gloomy feelings will pass as quickly as they came. Here's wishing you some sunshine!

A Different Kind of Day For Me

Saturday, April 30, 2011

I actually got about nine hours of sleep last night. Woo hoo! I can't remember the last time I've done that. I don't really have a long list of things that must be done today either. So, I get to play the day by ear and will maybe just be lazy and enjoy the day. Another woo hoo!

Job Searching is a Full Time Job

Friday, April 29, 2011

I've been spending so much time every day applying for jobs. The majority of the time, I don't get any response from the companies I apply to. It's rare that I get an interview. I'm getting discouraged and am beginning to wonder if there are any jobs out there. Or maybe I just don't have the right skills. I don't know...I just have to find my positive attitude again.

    I really don't think it's you or your fault. I think times are just tough. It used to be that you needed to send out about 100 inquiries to get 3 responses. It may be even worse now. Try to hang in there!

  I'm in the same place you are. It's easy to get discouraged but keep trying and keep your head up. The right job will come along.

    Yes sometimes it feels that there aren't any jobs, but you only need one person to give you an opportunity and that means putting the same effort into every resume or CV taht yo send out. Have you tried an agency?
