Hey Blather fans....I know it's been a while since I have really shared anything other than "news" stories and pics of my fat ass with Captain America and Thor...so here's a quick update.
It's been a month since I got laid off and I haven't really started looking for a job despite pressure from family and a few friends. This week I'm starting to finally think about it seriously. It's not been easy though considering that everything feels repetitious. For example, last week I logged into the CalJobs site - which is a state government site that allows one to create a resume and search for jobs -statewide - and began creating the online profile. There were some free form sections that I wanted to think about before entering anything. So when I logged in this morning everything I'd already entered was gone and my "profile" didn't exist. Frustrating.
My former company pays for a third-party career management company for 30 days; I haven't called them and they've called twice and sent a letter. I was dragging my feet because - quite honestly - I'm kind of in the 'anger' stage of this experience. They want to help me "transition" to a new job. Well, goddamn it, I had a job. I know I shouldn't be angry with this third-party company but again it seems like a slap in the face. Anyway, I finally called and maybe it won't be so bad. They'll help critique my resume, which definitely needs help.
One of the other things I need to do soon is to find a new bank. If you don't remember, I worked for a bank and like an idiot have all of my eggs in their basket: checking, credit card, mortgage, IRA. So I want to open a new account somewhere else so in time I can start paying my bills out of that account and use the existing account for the auto debit of the mortgage payment. I may look to refinance at a lower rate but want to establish a good relationship with the new bank first.
Here's perhaps the most exciting piece of news: at the end of the week I'm having a colonoscopy! I'm so thrilled. NOT. Okay let's be honest...lately I've been bottoming for O, mainly because I don't want to lose him and he is always horny. But to have a camera stuck up my ass? Not my idea of how to spend a Friday afternoon. Deep down I'm afraid a problem will be found.
Other than....I haven't had much excitement. The days still blur into one another.
Leave a comment and tell me what is new with you...come on...show the Behr some love!!
