I donít know what is wrong with me. I woke up today thinking it was Sunday. I just could not get up with the alarm (my attempted at keeping my body on the same clock considering I have to be up at 6am three days through the week) so I slept in. I woke up thinking I had an hour before getting ready for church and then I had to go to work so another week of not having my schoolwork done. How fortunate I have today. I spent the morning working on my cover letter. Iím having problems with it because the purpose is not to get a specific job but get my name out there. A generic cover letter as to what I am willing to do and how I can benefit any school board. Of course, when a job comes up I can tailor it to the position. Itís kind of like writing a love letter to my future husband, whoever that may be. Anyway I have a start. Enough procrastinating! Now I need to get to my resume. I did a skills based resume which is recommended for someone with gaps and diverse work history. My advisor did not like that approach and wants me to change it. He does have some great suggestions so I donít mind but I am really uncomfortable with the whole thing. I just have to stop thinking about it and just do it. I have a lot of help and support at the university. I just have to conquer my fear and take advantage of it.
