I have been applying for jobs almost daily for almost a month now and I've learned a few things:

  • I can only do it hard-core for so many days in a row before it starts to become soul-crushing.
  • Conversely, any day I haven't applied for a job, regardless of what else I've done that day, I feel like I've wasted.
  • I HATE writing cover letters (Nathan warned me about this)
  • What I really want to do if I can't get back to a newspaper, is freelance and substitute teach, which sounds kind of lazy, but I think freelancing could be very challenging
  • I'm not really worried about not having a job for my own sake, but we were hoping to be able to start the adoption process this year.
  • I miss working for the newspaper...a lot.
Nathan keeps trying to assure me that I'll get a job, but I have a hard time being optimistic. I've tried offering it up and forgetting about it, but it's been a month and no phone calls. It gets harder.
