I wasn’t planning to do this this year, but I’ve been convinced by a lovely, very talented, and incredibly amazing friend of mine (who you can bookmark and read her blog here) to do NaPloBloMo again. I did it a couple of years ago and I did in fact make it the entire month, and I really have no excuse to not be writing, having been unemployed since November 30, 2009.
So! I have a NaPlo buddy this year, and if you’re reading here, you should read her as well!
Let’s see. What’s exciting in my life – oh right, let’s talk about my luck.
My luck in finding a job is terrible. I’ve applied for over 800, and gotten about 30 interviews. Some interviews I slamdunk kicked the crap out of.. and then hear nothing. Go figure. Just completely frustrated now with them. I’m willing to drive 55 miles one way to work a 4 hour retail shift. This should tell any employer how desperate I am!
It doesn’t seem to matter.
However the other day I was helping a family friend clean and I got a random phone call… It turns out I won a trip to Las Vegas! Which is… I don’t know AWESOME. 4 day, 3 nights, hotel, plane, transportation to/from the airport, tickets to a nightclub, tickets to a show all covered. We pay for tips and food. No timeshare required. xD
I called my mom to ask if she wanted to go. She can’t; doesn’t like to fly + claustrophobia. I had several people in mind, but I picked the person who I have to think deserves it the most.
He’s worked for the same company for 30+ years, in a factory building farm equipment. He’s a very amazing person, and he loves to fly and travel.
So. We’ll be staying at the Aria, flying Southwest out of Kansas City International, sometime between now and Thanksgiving.
Hopefully, my luck will start going to getting a new job.
Or I’ll keep taking the winning contest thing. I don’t mind, karmic gods. Really. 😀
