A lot of people had today off for Columbus Day, but that is not one of the holidays here at Amy Corp. Plus I figured I might want to play hooky later in the week if the weather’s better.
I was showered, dressed and at my computer by 10 am today. Not exactly first thing, but a big turnaround compared to last week. And I rode my bike for about 40 minutes too (inside on the trainer since the spectacular fall weather is on hiatus: it was 50º and rainy this morning). So I was feeling pretty pleased with myself this morning.
The career counselor I met with last week suggested spending five hours a day job hunting. Compared to working eight-nine hour days, I thought that seemed reasonable, but that is really a long time. Especially because I’m working on redoing my resume. Which she basically said needed to be scrapped completely. All I did today were the easy corrections. And some of the exercises in the “So You Want a Job” workbook she gave me, which just stressed me out. I didn’t actually accomplish much of anything today though. I’m realizing I started about 50 things and finished zero. Baby steps…Anyway, it’s quitting time for today.
