At some point today I'll add more entries in my little competition, but right now I am trying to reset a bit and be productive.
The top effort here, obviously, is finding and getting a job. One of the job sites I use recently gave me some statistics about a particular job I was going for and said that the site alone had 396 applicants for this one position. Now obviously that won't include applicants from other sites, or internally, or word-of-mouth. Add it all up and people get confirmation of what we already suspected: the competition is significant.
I'm also trying to establish a little more order here at World Headquarters. Changing your physical perspective can be a positive. It refreshes your environment without destroying any "continuity" and helps you evaluate things in a new light.
Things need to change, and this is a low-impact way of doing that.
It was a strange weekend. A friend scored tickets to the season opener, and then sponsored post-game snacks. Then I came home and was inflicted with the Great Moth Incident of 2011. Cool temperatures arrived yesterday and I think the only negative is I feel I may be getting a cold.
Today the yard is being excavated as Stage 2 of the water saga takes place.
Clearly a lot of disarray. It's an unsettled time.
