I don’t have a job yet, but my blah of earlier this month is starting to fade, which is promising.
I went on two interviews last week, and I really feel like both went very well. One was with a major media company, and it’s one of the first job interviews I walked out of saying, “I want THIS job,” rather than, “I want A job.” The other was with a city agency and, while I would really prefer the media job, this one had its good points, too.
And for only the second time in my 20 years or so of playing softball, I was a member of a championship-winning team. This one was much more special than my first, as I was actually on crutches with a torn ACL (suffered while playing football) for the semifinal and final game of my first championship, with my only contribution being coaching third base while leaning on a crutch.
So congratulations, Shannon Lounge, 2008 Hoboken Co-Ed Softball League Champions!
Unlike my last self-imposed break from job hunting, this one did not involve alcohol, but recovery from it. The celebration last Thursday night was legendary, and I seriously don’t think I accomplished one productive thing Friday. Getting out of bed before 2:30 p.m. is usually a precursor to being productive.
But I’m back on the case today, a prisoner in the house while waiting for DHL to deliver my new cell phone. And I’m really hoping for some good news on the job front this week.
