I no longer like my job. I still like the people, and the responsibilities the position entails, but I don't like the mechanics of shutting down. The constant explanations to customers. The constant "What are you going to do now?" The constant response of "I don't know."

I wish they would all stop taking it personally.

I give up. BlogSpot it is, at least for the moment.

Today I am thinking about looking for a job. I am in the midst of an involuntary career change. I still have a full-time job, but my company is closing its US operations. I've been spending a lot of time recently updating my resume. Truthfully, I don't know why I'm playing with this blog instead. I have cover letters to write. Unfortunately, I can only write so much without going batty. I find myself getting stuck directly after "Dear Sirs:". Perhaps I need to rethink my heading.

The worst is waiting for them to call. Or email. Or whatever. I have one position I have applied for that I desperately want. They received my resume on Friday... they should call any day right? I hate job hunting.
I'm currently trying to escape from BlogSpot. I'm sure it's a fabulous service, but I'm looking for a little more freedom. My issue is that my alternative as far as web space hosting is AOL (yes, yes I know. It's free, so I manage)... and as I have discovered, Blogger and AOL do not harmonize. Off I go looking for a new web home...
It looks like I've gone live. Welcome to the fledgling experiment I've temporarily titled Vignette. We'll see where this one goes.
testing, testing, 1, 2, 3....
