The job search…


I decided that right now would be a good time to take a break from the job search. Who knew it would really be this hard and time consuming to find a job after such a big move. I know that Nashville is going to give me more opportunity that I had up in Iowa, but jeez!

I have applied to 36 jobs in the last week, and I think that might have a lot to do with the fact that I had to quit smoking before my oral surgery on Friday. I feel like if I am not doing something I will want to go have a smoke or kill someone because I can’t.

The up side of not smoking – no headaches, no sore throats, and no coughing.

The down side of not smoking – mood swings, exhaustion, and more consumption of chocolate that I have ever experienced before.

I have been chewing gum and applying for jobs all week just to keep my mouth and hands busy.

Back on track now – I know you guys really don’t want to hear my sob story of how i quit smoking so back to job search.

I have applied to so many kinds of jobs:

  • Nanny
  • Administrative Assistant
  • Personal Assistant
  • Graphic Design
  • Social Media/Content Manager
  • Marketing
  • Store Management in Retail

So many kinds of jobs, so many applications, yet the only ones I have heard from yet are two scams that I caught fairly quickly. So I have decided that if I don’t have a job by the January 1, 2014 I will be moving back to Iowa/Minnesota and looking for jobs in Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

So what do I do now? Well – I am working on some things for my uncle so I am still making some money, but honestly I don’t want to apply to anymore jobs for the next week 1) because of the surgery 2) because I don’t want to have to think about 100 different job applications.

I think I have reached my maximum amount of applications for this week – so I am going to sit around the house listening to country music and drinking lots of coffee. I am going to sit and sing loudly to the music as I write probably 1 billion blogs, but I know that  you guys will enjoy each one of them.

So here is where your feedback is important! I want to know what you think I should blog about while under prescription narcotics and bored out of my mind. Remember I will be recovering from surgery so keep it funny huh? If you give me some ideas I will make sure to showcase your blog in that post – so it will be funny and promotional! Perfect huh?

Toodles for now interwebz! Maybe I will see you in a bit or maybe it will be a couple days – who knows. These fingers are wanting to fly and my brain has a million ideas for blogs!
