Its been a while since I’ve posted on here, I’ve also not had much to say nor have I found anything of interest to post recently. But I must say that I come to you with some things. So, this will just about be a very quick week in review.
First of all, two Saturdays ago, I drove Melissa to her “SURPRISE!” Bridal Shower. She was surprised, as I was, at the amount of presents that we both received. I think it just shows how much we are both loved. The apartment is still hurting from the onslaught of gifts and boxes, but its not nearly as bad as it was when we first got back. In fact, some of the presents are still at my parents house!
This past weekend we went to a wedding for a close family friend of Melissa and her family. I mostly know the brother of the groom (who is a fellow screenwriter). We had a good time and we spent the weekend at Melissa’s parent’s house.
That brings us to today. Today, I had an interview in a school district, I had help from Evkoz on creating two sample lesson plans and I feel that things went very well. I don’t like to jinx myself, so that about as far as I’ll go.
When I got back from the interview I received another phone call from another place (outside of the education field) with questions with a possible interview in site. I’m crossing my fingers on that one.
So, that brings me to right now, this second, I’m on careerbuilding.com (as I’ve been trying to do for a while) and I’ve created an account, I want to post my resume, have it seen by employers, etc, etc…and I come across this “What’s you sign? Hot Jobs for Your Horoscope” link. So, I take a moment and I check out what mine would be. I’m an Aquarius so I look at it and here is what they had:
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Your traits: Innovative, tolerant, personable and quick-witted. Creative and independent, you set the trends that others follow.
Compatible jobs: Your excellent aesthetic sense lends you to a career in the arts, such as photography, music, writing and acting. Aquarians are visionaries, and therefore are also suited to science, aviation and computer technology.
Famously successful Aquarians: Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, Gertrude Stein
Ohh man! I’ve got some big shoes to fill in that one. Thanks a lot! I actually didn’t know who Gertrude Stein was, so I just looked her up and according to wikipedia.org she was: “an American writer and is considered to have acted as a catalyst in the development of modern art and literature. She spent most of her life in France.”
I guess I was born in the write…I mean, right month, now I just wish I could find a job something so that I don’t have to just be in this limbo that I am in right now. I feel like I’m just in between things (which I am) but I’ve always had high ambition in mind and I just want to obtain that.
The other day, while driving home I heard the Green Day song “Good Riddance” better known by its nicer title “Time of your life” and I can remember hearing this song at different points in my life since it came out in 1997. Every time a graduating senior class was leaving, they played this song. The end of an era of a show (like Seinfeld). It always seemed to pop up as if literally showing the end of one thing, waving it “good bye” and moving on. Like the U2 song “Beautiful Day”, which whenever it was played on the radio (without my prompting–like on a cd or off of a playlist) always signified something good was going to happen or just happened or some variation of it; “Time of Your Life” has always been about leaving something and moving forward towards something better. But I hadn’t heard it naturally like that in a long time. What I’m trying to say is that I hope that the fact that it was slightly resurrected, even if it was only that one time, I hope that it was showing me the sign that I needed to know that I was moving on from this limbo that I’ve been in for a while now with my job search and heading forward towards something better. Whether it was in an office or teaching, I just hope that it marks the beginning of something good…correction, something great.
