Good Morning, Kittens.
Pull up a chair. We need to dish. Because, OMG, I have so much to do ... and what am I doing? Blogging. Surfing the 'netz. Someone smack me with the Motivation Stick, plz.
I have a handful of good news: (1) I have a second interview on Friday and (2) I have a lunch date today.
The interview is with the organization which phone interviewed me last week. Huzzah. They love me! Of course, how could they not? The bad news is that they need a recent (within a year) writing sample. Guess who doesn't have a recent (within a year) writing sample?
Everything I've written recently was either for work (and proprietary) or something I would not want a future employer to read (unless maybe that employer wants to read about teh buttsecks). A friend told me that the EPA published an Announced Notice of Proposed Ruling (ANPR) on greenhouse gases yesterday. I need to find that (which won't be hard), read it (which may be hard), and write something about it (which will be hard) ... by tomorrow. Gah.
I also need to:
-prep for the interview (I am almost 100% certain I have a suit ... somewhere)
-apply to two more jobs this week
-go over the proposed co-op budget, since we're meeting with the management company tonight.
Not to mention (even though I already did) that I have a Lunch Date. Today. With a guy. Who seems nice. And smart. I'm not even sure I'm ready to start dating again. It's not very often that I get asked to lunch with a guy who seems nice and smart. I figured "what the hell. just do it." So, I'm doing it. But, I can say with almost 100% surety that we won't do *it*. VUBOQ has learned that doing *it* with a guy on the first date usually turns out bad ... unless he doesn't want a 2nd date ;-)
OK. I have to motivate.
More later. *smooches*
