DAY 56 OF THE SEARCH FOR A CAREER
Well, it's Monday, Monday...most people dreaded getting out of bed this morning and dragging themselves off to work. Funny, I've been here before, only last time I was in Georgia. Waking up, going through the day of looking for a job and not finding what I want to do...what do I want to do? I am a chemist, did I mention an unemployed chemist, with apparently not enough experience? When I was working, all I wanted to do was not go to work, who doesn't? Now, I sit at home every day and creatively find ways to fulfill my days. We have a new puppy now, Chance, who takes some of the boredom out of the day. And we live in a CDD HOA community, where we have to plan what we plant, so that's a task on the list, and I surf around and network for possible positions every week, but aside from that, my days are largely filled with nothing. I registered for the GMAT. I'm going to pursue my MBA in January, yes, still chasing some degree after all these years. You'd think with an AA, BS and MS that I'd have a J.O.B. but not yet. Well, I'm off to organize and create a guest bedroom out of the middle bedroom in our house...which has become the storage pile for "what are we going to do with this?"
