for being so quiet over here.
I have recently found myself lost in my own thoughts a lot. Numerous hours are spent on the computer, working on my resume, trying to find jobs in the area that would fit my profile.
I am a little bit struggling with what my profile is. Often, when I come across job descriptions and the requirements, I have doubts about my own skills and abilities. Although I’ve been given very good references by my old boss, I don’t give myself enough credit. I know that I can do any job that you place in front of me. I just have a very hard time “advertising myself and my skills” and if there is one requirement in the job description that I don’t feel comfortable about, I am easily discouraged.
I know that this is totally silly and unnecessary, but I guess it just comes from the fact that I don’t have much, if not to say close to NO- job hunting experience whatsoever.
All the jobs that I had before were acquired through contacts and personal persistence. I’ve never applied for a job the common way and I have never had a real job interview. My inexperience in regard to that makes me somewhat nervous, although I know that I do have a good way with people and, once they’ve met me personally, will have a much better idea of what to expect from me work-wise.
As soon as there is any news in this department, I’ll let you know.
Our weekend was pretty quiet. J made me watch a whole bunch of X-files episodes, me keeping my promise that I would start watching all X-files seasons with him. It was my trade-off for J’s sitting through all the Sex and the City seasons with me [which we haven yet to finish]. I have to admit that I start developing a liking for the show, although I still kind of disagree with the “mystery” part of it. I am not a fan of horror movies and the like and everything that is a little scary or suspicious leaves me behind with a tense feeling.
We cooked some yummy dinner on Friday. A nice steak, salad and potatoes. If anyone needs a good recipe for potatoes [baked in the oven with some herbs], just let me know and I’ll share it. It’s very easy, too.
UPDATE:Ã‚Â You can find the recipe following the “Recipes” link on the right ;)
