Sadly, I feel that there is very little news to report.Â I have rearranged my CV so many times, and written so many covering letters, I am quite tired of myself.Â I have lost count of the number of jobs about which I have contacted recruiters–or the numbers of recruiters I have contacted to be considered for potentially suitable roles.Â There are a handful of positions I am seriously pursuing and I have an interview on Thursday.Â Whew!Â Being unemployed is a lot of work.
I have managed to keep the laundry at bay and cook meals that didnâ€™t get scraped out the window or into the bin.Â I also had lunch with Drew and Janita on Thursday at Wagamama. (I think I might compare it to Pei Wei, though it’s not quite the same.) Â After lunchÂ Janita and I inadvertently led Drew to an arcade in search of caffeine after our meal.Â At least I got to show Drew my favorite store in London–Octopus.Â Who needs any of this stuff?Â And why do I want it so badly anyway?
What I didnâ€™t do today was prepare the magic notebook, pack a contest survival bag, or copy an insane number of cds for a Field Day performance.Â I did, however, let my thoughts drift off to those crazy folks who are doing those things.
