What to do when you have nothing to do June 11, 2008

So this is week two of job hunting.  It’s kind of a strange place to be in.  My job position has no begining, no end, not even a really good “place to stop for now”.  It’s the nature of the job, and I am ok with that, almost crave it.  The opportunity to constantly tweak it, it’s what I LOVE to do, fiddle with stuff.  But when you know your time in the position is coming to and end, it’s hard to know what to do.  People in the office find it strange that I am trying to get things put together for the person who basically took my job (for the record, it was her chioce.  If you wanted to look at it in an immature way she basically got her toy taken from her, pointed at me playing with mine and said “I wan’t that!” and oddly enough they took mine from me and gave it to her) But I’m really not that offended by her.  Or hurt by her.  It’s not like I plan to slash her tires when I find out who it is or anything  of the sort.  All this to say, when you have nothing else to do, what other options do I have?  You can only re-read the same want ads each day so many times before it’s truly a depressing thing, and the news is really not any better.  Great, Jessica Alba had her baby, so did Tori Spelling, and apparently some crazy in Texas says the world is ending tomorrow.  I guess if that was the case this whole job search thing is in vain, huh?  So I might as well keep my chin up, continue to try to make the transition of me leaving the job and the new girl starting the job as easy as possible and pray that an even better job comes my way!  It’s happened more than once, it can happen again!


Anyone Got a Good Lemonade Recipe? June 3, 2008

Filed under: Random — contactcards @ 3:48 pm

So on Friday I got tossed a big batch of lemons.  I have been laid off.  My position has not been eliminated, instead, someone elses job has been eliminated and since they have more seniority than I do (as in, they have been working for the Health Department longer than I have been alive) they get my job.  I have mixed feelings about how that whole thing went down, but either way, I am out of a job.  As far as having a new job goes, I’m cool with that.  I enjoyed my job, but it was not my life, nor did I ever hope it would be.  I work to live, not live to work.  And the possibility of having a job that I might get to move around a little more and not just be perched in front of a computer from 8-5 sounds nice!  But I still have to FIND that job.  And job hunting for myself is not a favorite activity of mine.  So I have the lemons, a little sugar, but I still have not figured out the lemonade recipe.  If someone has one, please share it with me!!!
