Just so it’s official: I hate looking for work. Yes, in a case of life imitating art, I really did quit my job and cash out my pension. No road trip or Zeke, though…damn it! 😦
Let me repeat: I HATE LOOKING FOR WORK!!! I just don’t know how to sell myself, and I always end up thinking “oh my god – I have no skills! I’ll be living on the street soon – or worse: with one of my siblings! I’ll have to eat the cats just to stay alive!” Okay. Maybe not the last bit – *groans and laughs*.
I don’t know why I get so stressed out about it. I’m reasonably intelligent, reasonably competent and reasonably skilled. I’m willing to learn new things and actually like being in a new environment (most of the time). And I know I’ll get something – as I’ve told several people: I’ve scrubbed toilets before, I can do it again. I just really can’t deal with the stress of cover letters and assessing whether I can do the work described in the job ad. *rocks in the corner*
Okay. Enough of that. I’m going to go watch more Get Smart (almost finished Season 2!) and work on something that has nothing to do with employment!! On a lighter note, I do have an original fic niggling in my brain: a romantic comedy “starring” Nathan Fillion and Michelle Rodriguez…not sure yet how much of a comedy it’ll be, actually, but the characters are definitely starting to gel in my head. Unfortunately, at the moment, Nathan’s character is a bit too much like Castle but that will likely change as I write the thing. LOL
I’m not sure if I’m happy or sad about this new fic; I SHOULD be writing the sequel to A Life Less Ordinary (not to mention fic for the BigBang I have looming on the horizon), but the actors are adorable!!! How can I resist writing about them?!?! ;P I’ll post a plot synopsis once I’ve actually articulated it in my own head – LOL.
Oooh – and there will be two new Blog stops tomorrow for my blog tours!! Yaaaayyyy!!!
Have a great rest of the weekend everybody!
