230 emails to go through! A lot of those are blog comments I've received over the last few months and want to deal with! 🙂 (All positive ones…which I appreciate…thank you)
was a comment. Yep, still alive. Busy. More soon!!
I am a creature of habit and routine. I can thrive in a properly scheduled environment. However, a key element is that the scheduled environment has to be mandatory. Right now, I have a lot to do, but am having trouble with motivation. I'm struggling with the disappointment of discovering a magical job isn't going to land in my lap! I know that was an unrealistic expectation but I sure did have it!
I'm still waiting to hear back on some job opportunities. Trying to stay motivated! I am an official OTR/L now though, I got my TN licensure! That's pretty exciting!!
It has been brought to my attention that I have not blogged in a few days. Oops.
Ok! Two applications down with minimal hair-pullage, haha. I think I'll apply 1-2 more places and then settle for a while so I can deal with potential interviews and all. I've learned a lot just in the last few weeks and so hopefully I'll do well with the next few.
I just finished my cover letter. I'm going to go to Kinko's and get everything copied/notarized/sent out. I am thrilled to be done with the longest application. The place I'm applying has an AWESOME culture of excellence and it would be a wonderful opportunity.
I am pretty sure my blood pressure is 3382828288282 over 3838989292892. I find job applications immensely tedious. I just spent many hours on a 13 page application and then spent a few hours struggling with my new mac and new printer…I am sooo used to a PC that even little things flummox me on the Mac! And then I just started to fill out another online application for a hospital, but its application website was utterly ridiculous. It would list schools/majors to choose from, and then my school and major wouldn't be present, and then it would give you an error if you tried to leave it blank, etc. Ugh!!
TWO MAIN GOALS:
So I am learning to navigate my new Macbook. I love it to pieces but there is definitely an element of hesitancy, I have to get used to it. It doesn't feel the same. The Macbook was an awesome graduation present, although I got many wonderful graduation presents. 🙂
