Random Tid Bits

  1. My work computer kept having the fan go off yesterday. I would shut it down, threw a bunch of stuff away, wouldn't have programs open, and it would still fan up. My co-worker helped me to figure out that I had a virus. Google was taking up 100% of my CPU. It took a bit, but is fixed now. I'm so glad I've procrastinated with transferring this computer to my new computer. 

  2. Blogger has changed a bunch of stuff. I no longer get your comments in an email to approve, so I just assumed no one loved this blog enough to comment. I was wrong. They were tucked away, waiting for my approval. 

  3. I've read this over and over again, and it makes no sense to me. What do I need to do? Where's this message (Blogger People) that they are talking about? I haven't removed any message, but I don't want to get red flagged to never be able to get on here again. Anyone know?

  4. I still in job land limbo. Two different companies wanted me. They are so far away in opposite directions. Both would do different things. Both interviews went great, they paid well, and I'd get benefits.

    One place had me in twice. That place told me that they may need someone in earlier; before classes got over. He wanted me to message him anyhow. Even if he didn't have me working there, he wanted me to freelance write for him. I emailed him, and nothing. I'd call, but I don't know that I want the full time job. Distance, chemicals, and a company dog is what's pushing me away. They work on school folders, pens, and other school things. I'd have to deal with a lot of customers, and not so much with actual designing.

    The other job is a Marketing Coordinator at a doctor's office. Basically I'd set up events, parties, and mingle with drunk doctors. Ha! It's just something she brought up. She seemed like she wanted me. Then she wouldn't return my emails. I found out they are looking for 3 top people for the job. When I applied, I was the only one. Again it's far away, it's a lot of tasks that would be new.

    I've kept looking. Part of me thought well maybe I'll get my Teacher's Certificate to teach high school art. Even those jobs are few and far between. Another part of me was thinking, forget it all I'll make over $50,000 and be a postman. It was tempting! I'd have to pay $50 for an exam book, which is odd. Could you imagine driving in the ice and snow though? If I was making good money, had good benefits I could just work on art at home - off the clock and be satisfied. Travis thinks I'm nuts! Another part of me likes what I do here, and just thinks I'll stay yet another year. Do you think I'm a flake for being all over the place?

  5. So I've been filling out applications, trying to get Facebook Blueprint Certified, dealing with a computer virus, updating my website like crazy and more. What are you up too?

Good luck in figuring out what you want to do for the next step in your career!! I'm kind of in the same position in that I only intended to stay on in my current job until my boss retires in a year or two.. and then after that I was thinking of moving but I'm not sure to what either! But then my current job benefits are good too so I'm not too sure if I should move.. yikes.

All this is in the a year or two though so I'm not in a rush to figure it out but I really should especially if I want to move to another industry.

If you feel like moving on, probably time to move on. :) I loved/hated teaching and put in my resignation for my school months ago (staying until the year ended).

They asked me to renew but so many days I'd wake up thinking, 'I don't want to go and you can't make me,' hahahaha...not really, but you get the idea. It is an impoverished school, with kids I love, but the fighting every day (from kids bigger than me sometimes) gets old really quick. They snap like rubberbands at simple things like lining up together. -_-

Good luck to you!! And good luck to me!! We have great new things on our horizons!

Good luck with your job hunt. It can be so stressful, but I do feel that the right fit will find its way to you sooner rather than later. Things always have a funny way of working out like that.

I have no idea what that Blogger message means. I just closed it out and moved on. If they flag me, whatever. I'll just make the move over to Wordpress, which I should have done a long time ago anyway.
