If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I did absolutely nothing of interest this week besides receiving seven measly dollars in return for a bagful of old CDs and books that I brought in to sell at Half Priced Books. When I first went up to the counter to receive my bid, I thought the employee said $37, which I was going to be rather surprised and gleeful about.

Once Upon a Time, I Decided to Start Job Hunting (That Time is Now)

So, I sat down here a couple hours ago with the intention of filling out a job application for a real life, post-college, big kid job.

Two hours later and I don’t have a whole lot accomplished. Facebook happened. WordPress happened. Instagram happened. Eating Christmas cookies happened. Continue reading “Once Upon a Time, I Decided to Start Job Hunting (That Time is Now)”
