Although one of the reasons I created this blog was to get myself to write everyday, the last thing I want to do is write for the sake of writing. The last few days have been filled with being busy with housework and other projects with the cream on the top always being my feeling of hopelessness and being stuck over the job search. The cream, by the way, is sour and gross.
Rainy and gray Monday here in Pennsylvania. I gave myself some time today to take a breath but I did get some things done. I even cleaned out email and was amazed at all the emails in my inbox and outbox.
The outbox shows all the resumes and cover letters I’ve sent to potential employers. The inbox is pretty bare in comparison, except for the automated confirmation letters you sometimes receive when you’ve applied for a job.
Your inbox should always be fuller than your outbox, don’t you think? Or at the very least, my inbox should be directly proportional to my outbox. My inbox should be full of interview confirmations and offer letters in response to the resumes and cover letters.
Isn’t there some scientific technological law for this? Or is more a phenomena, like Bigfoot or the Bermuda Triangle? Why is life so full of so many questions and so little answers? WHY ISN’T MY INBOX FULL???
The saddest part of this inane blog post is that I had to google “Bigfoot” to see if it is one word or two.
