When Phil, Job Seeker Advocate from ZipRecruiter.com, suggested I was a "great fit!" for a local Pizza Hut Delivery Driver opportunity, I lost all faith in his ability to match job skill-strengths with actual employment openings. So either I need to be a little more vigilant about my online food ordering activities or perhaps an online recruiter break-up is in the cards.
Research definitely needed here.
Nothing can be more exciting than a week involving Salon Pampering, right? So yes, that is the plan, including fresh highlights and a stylish haircut on my upcoming itinerary. But first is an interview with #Apple, a company in which I should own plenty of stock based on all of the devices purchased for myself and family over the past few decades.
Just think, I might be your next Genius Bar Guru... *stay tuned!*
Update 9/24/18: After doing more research on Apple's hiring process and reading this in particular, I decided to "go in another direction" instead. Salon Pampering is still on, though.
Nike really was onto something with that whole Just Do It slogan, mostly because I didn't even set out to exceed last week's workout stats - but yet, lookee there! After Just Doing It and sticking to my usual workout routine (3 days of cardio + interval training) I've blown last week's stats completely out of the stratosphere. (mostly) And crazily, a couple of those days involved major bodily protests while I was pounding the treadmill and pumping iron. Obviously I ignored all of those protests and powered on, hence the increase in miles, calorie burn, and total active minutes.
So now you know the real reason behind Nike's soaring stock increase.
*takes a bow*
Yes, I am one of those Husker Football Nation inhabitants who thought, perhaps, Scott Frost's swooping down into the coveted UNL Head Football Coach role would save the team from impending doom, thus bringing back something remotely close to Nebraska's National Championship team he (and WE) remember like just yesterday.
But no. Not yet, anyway.
I do get that we must be patient as Coach Frost scares off the bad karma continuing to curse the team into its doomed state. Unfortunately, Husker Nation itself (me included) needs some serious coaching in said patience, something of which was depleted after the downward spiral began and continued spiraling for way too many years.
So as I realize the 2018 football season is going to involve a big huge learning opportunity for a whole bunch of over-eager (wishful-thinking?) fans wearing red every weekend...
So much action is taking place on my job transition right now that I cannot even keep up with it blog-wise. A good thing, right?? In a nutshell, I've been acquiring new Tech Recruiters on a daily basis; my employment applications are seeing results; and I seem to be focusing in on the best search methodology in finding potential opportunities. And really, the best part is that I can still file a weekly claim and receive an unemployment check while doing so.
Yeah, I'm doing OK in spite of the situation.
Moving that final College Peepster out of the house and back into a residence hall actually worked in my favor last week fitness-wise, as noted by the extra 7,955 steps earned over the week. Now if only I can find a way to make the 800 mile round-trip drive generate an actual calorie burn instead of 13 hours of numb buns.
Is there an app for that? Thinking I might be onto something market-worthy here...
Exactly 4 days after moving the remaining college peepster into a swanky new residence hall, I'm feeling all Super Powered - much like my childhood superhero, Wonder Woman, only without the sparkly star-spangled-supersuit with matching gold lasso. And with that, I think I've just discovered this year's Halloween costume.
Be SUPER scared.
Less than 24 hours after rolling back into the home driveway with one less family member in tow, I'm attempting to wrap my head around the fact that another college peep is out-of-pocket for a another semester, thus making the house feel way less claustrophobic again. Not only that but I'm left feeling almost giddy about how smoothly this move-in went even after receiving this text on the excruciatingly long drive back to the family homestead:
yo did you guys miss one of the pockets of that Adidas duffel bag?
I emptied the blue one but I'm missing like 12 pairs of underwear
So glad God invented Amazon Prime for situations such as these.
I am Brenda Swenson and sometimes I blog.
