Stranger in A Strange Land

Looking for work, even on perpetual holiday, is sort of a drag. It means instead of taking full advantage of the glassy eleven am unemployment waves, doing a lot of stuff that looks a lot like work but which does not result in glorious bank deposits.

The problem is that instead of spending five years tending bar, answering phones, working my way up in some corporate monolith, this resume has too much stuff on it, none exactly right. Hard to spin.

The funniest part about looking for work is the crappier the job the more references people seem to want. For my last four or five jobs, no one even wanted a reference page. I had gone pro, what anyone would say about me was irrelevant.

Slowly, I’m figuring out ideas, slowly working on a plan. It is actually a very good microcosmic kind of trial run.
