About me

I'm a mid twenty something woman living in New England with my two dogs. I graduated college in 2008, and by then the economy was tanking. It was not a good time to enter the adult world. I was originally going to Vet school, but developed severe animal allergies. After 7 months of allergy shots, that affected my liver and actually made my symptoms much worse, i had to give up that dream. Now I'm just trying to find a steady job. I had major reconstructive knee surgery in November of 2011, so I'm still healing.

First week of work. Done!

Wow. That was a long week! I've been trying to find work for a long time. I've had a few 1-4 day jobs through some temp agencies, not nothing of any real note. This job is meant to be several weeks long. It's just processing rebates, but it's a bit above minimum wage, I can wear jeans, and every one is nice. Unfortunaelt, I have an ear infection. It was bothering me all week, but I refused to take time off to see a doctor. I went to the walk in this morning. Not the best way to start a weekend.

Another day on the job

Honestly, I didn't think that entering rebates would be stressful and so full of expectation. It's only my third day, and I was told I needed to pick up the pace.

A new job

I started a new job today. I've been hardcore job hunting for over six months now. I thought moving out of a rural/suburban area would increase my chances of employment. I was wrong. I'm signed up with 12 temp agencies, and apply to jobs on line. Each and every weekday I'll check the new postings for jobs that I have any chance of getting. About every three weeks I'd get an interview. The job I have no is basic, repetitve, data entry. It's still a job, and may last a few weeks. Just in time for businesses to put the freeze on hiring until after the holidays. Lame.

A fresh start

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while. Each time I start, I just talk myself out of it. I question myself. Why would anyone read this, what do I have to offer, why spend my time on something like this? Since I still don't really have any supportive answers to that question, I figured what the hell. Why not? This is also a way to help myself improve my photography skills. I plan on posting a photo a day. If I have a reason to pick up a camera everyday, then I'll be more likely to do it. I also have a FB page to encourage myself to take more photos. http://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Path-in-Pictures/237171359744323#!/pages/My-Path-in-Pictures/237171359744323
