We are strange beings, we seem to go free, but we go in chains – chains of training, custom, convention, association, environment – in a word, Circumstance – and against these bonds the strongest of us struggle in vain ”. Mark Twain
I’ve been making my lists. Today, I am positioning myself to make a move.
My first step, change my job hunting techniques. I am devoting four hours a day, five days a week looking for a meaningful position. What’s the change? Before, between tweets and blogging, I spent almost eight hrs a day looking. (No kidding, I spent a workday, looking for a meaningful position). Why the cutback? I was driving myself crazy revamping resumes, following up on every lead given. So, a step back may be required.
Reconnecting with something other than a keyboard.
I watched an episode of ABC’s Modern Family and was fascinated by the “unplugged” episode. (Actually, I LOVE that show. The characters are…)
So, I am going to task myself. I am going to blot out a few hrs a day to completely disconnect. Mobile will be tuned off; laptop powered down, not even using the iPod. Humm, I’ll get to use that fancy paper journal.
My blog/vlog buddy…
Television, I’ve rediscovered it and am loving it. Some of my favourite shows, in no particular order.
A.) Being Human (I love the UK version. The US version is growing on me.)
B.) Shameless (see the above. The UK version ROCKS!)
C.) Cougar Town
D.) Modern Family
G.) Hot in Cleveland
H.) Grey’s Anatomy
I.) Brothers and Sisters
J.) The Avengers: the animated series
K.) Young Justice (when did Aqualad become black?)
Wow, that is quite a list.
