...is really freaking slow. Oh, well.
I spent this morning re-writing my resume (thanks to our old PC, the original file was corrupted and completely useless) and sending out for another part-time job opportunity. I have a job on Fridays now, which pays pretty well for what it is, so I am excited. Not to mention, the job is at a state park which is gorgeous! And an art gallery! I will be SURROUNDED by inspiration all day (and I was told I can bring my camera and take photos whenever I want a break from paperwork)!
This other job I applied for today is at the local college library where I worked as a student aid. This time, the position is PT, the pay is higher, and I generally just miss working in a library. I think it was my favorite job ever, even more than running my own business (I have anxiety attacks, so living my dream can mean freaking out a lot, too). There is something so peaceful about libraries. They house my favorite things- books- and are a haven of silence. I appreciate silence quite a bit.
And as I am recapping, I will touch on my earlier rant about Awards Season... I actually managed to win a WATCH award! What?!?!?! I was floored. It was the first time I was nominated that I didn't write the "just in case" acceptance speech, so of course that would be when I finally get called to the podium. By the by, those podiums aren't as tall as I thought they were, which is good, because I am short. I discovered that my childhood speech impediment returns when I am really nervous. I also discovered that standing on a stage in front of a ton of people who volunteer in community theatre is totally different than standing on a stage in front of a ton of people coming to see you as a character in a show. Maybe it was because it was me being me (unscripted!)? Anyway, it was a complete honor and humbling experience. I was up against some truly talented people, and I am so stunned to have been there in the first place as a nominee. Woah.
OK, well, I am going to gather up all Bear's and my old clothes and get them to Goodwill... and maybe pick up some new-to-me goodies!
Sorry for the lack of photos... perhaps I will photograph and share any thrifty finds later!
