I am still pursuing the new job in financial planning. I had one small thing to clear off of my credit report before they could move forward. Coming up with the $2700 to do that proved less difficult than getting the proof to the new company that I had done it. Now, however, all the letters have been sent to all the right places. Now it is just a matter of waiting, and by "waiting", I mean calling them until I get in touch with the person I need to talk to in order to make sure they have the letter.
I think it also might not be a bad idea to look at other jobs in the same field. The one I am looking at is definitely excellent, but only if I get it, and it seems like getting a few other irons warming in the fire is not a bad strategy in the job search world.
I watched the Superbowl on Sunday. I did not get to Micah's party as I had hoped, but I did get a private halftime show from Annie, so I would say that all in all it was a pretty good time. Actually, it was pretty close to the ideal football watching experience. I watched the game, my girlfriend brought me snacks, I got the private halftime show upstairs, then back to the game in time to see the incredible onside kick (which I had to look up the rules for since I had never actually seen one). Being with Annie, I believe that I can say a winnar is me!!!
This weekend is the Flea. Annie and I have a new friend, who I shall refer to here as LittleWho for now. We will be bringing her with us. She has never been to such an event, and we like to help educate folks in the finer ways of the world, so it should be good time had by all.
Wicked Faire is in two weeks. We are hoping to bring LittleWho with us to that as well if I can figure out how to pay for her hotel room. It's times like this that I wish I had the income I should be making. I should go find a job. Fortunately, such a process is underway, and I have a few crafty ideas that may take care of our more immediate needs.
There we go. Now when I look back years from now I can say, "Oh, look, another time when I resolved to start posting more... then failed again." ;)
