Simple silhouettes and cutouts...

I'm on the brink of fading out

12/2/10 02:23 pm - holy whoa

I haven't posted about this publicly yet but my mind is kind of bursting so I figured I'd say hey to the old livejournal.

Aaron and I have been talking about getting new jobs somewhere and just up and moving to a completely new and different place. Since I have a very specific niche that I work it, it's a lot easier for me to pinpoint available jobs to apply to. I applied to about five that were all over the place. I really didn't expect much because it was done mostly on a whim and I just used stock resumes and cover letters.

One place called me back to schedule a phone interview. That interview happened yesterday. We talked for about 10 minutes, I choked and couldn't think of any questions to ask when it came to my turn and it was over. I figured I bombed it.

Ten minutes later I get a call back and they want to invite me for an in-person interview. Travel expenses are reimbursed. Very unexpected.

For the remainder of the night I'm excited, scared, confused and pretty much every feeling I could be. I spent time alternating between travel arrangements for the interview (less than a week to plan) and crying my eyes out at the grandeur of it all.

Aaron is amazingly supportive and will be traveling with me to decide if it is a place we want to live if I'm offered the job, but at the same time he is vague and nonchalant about the different options which is somewhat frustrating. He says he will be okay with either decision that it comes to (staying or moving) but a part of me wants him to sway me one way or the other if it comes to it. I guess I'd want him to be super excited about moving because that would help me cope or something.

I've never had an opportunity like this. I've sent out hundred of applications since I graduated college. Everything has been more or less local.

I don't know how I'd handle being away from family, or how my family would handle me moving away.

I'm overthinking this now, but I guess I kind of want to know what my decision would be before I even have to make it. They may not offer me a job and all this stress would be worthless and moot.

Next weekend I'm going to the biggest little city in the world and I need to decide if I could live there.

Reno, baby.

I am now a Pampered Chef consultant. I went to a party last week and I figured it was a good way to make a little money while my job search continues goes nowhere.

To all my friends out there in the far reaches of the US, I invite you to do a catalog party with me since I can't actually pester you to host a show for me.

If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll give you all the info. It's pretty easy and you can buy awesome and cool kitchen gadgets!

7/7/09 09:52 am - China

So, on Sunday there were very bad riots in the the Xinjiang province. As a result most social networking sites are blocked. I don't really understand that. I feel for the lives that were lost as a result of the riots but I don't understand the governments ideology of blocking things when it comes to situations like this...especially when it's so sporadic. I can get to livejournal and share this with my friends, but not facebook...it makes no sense.

6/21/09 09:14 am - hello, internet

I'm in China, just wanted to say hi :)

4/24/09 11:16 am - around the world...

China is a go.

May 19 - June 17 I will live in the IEP house at URI and take an intensive introductory Chinese course.

June 18 - July 19 I will be at the Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China taking the second Chinese course.

I'm pretty excited. The only thing that could make this better would be a travel buddy. Any takers? ;) It's fairly cheap for all that you get.

Check it out!

Would anyone like to go to see The Decemberists on June 9th? We have two tickets up for grabs, $50 each.

4/18/09 11:50 pm - mostly involving Boston

I've had a fun and busy few days. I have a fun and busy (with some quite unfun things mixed in) next few days. I was going to write about it, but I'm exhausted. Maybe after the whole stretch is over. Consider this a teaser.

Anyone around here interested in going to see the Flight of the Conchords in Boston tomorrow? My friends have an extra ticket that they are looking to unload.
