So what have I been up to??
.....Although I am still feeling very restless and somewhat displaced, I have been putting a lot of energy into cleaning my house. You do not realize how much junk, dust, and garbage accumulates inside of closets and cupboards in the course of 2.5 years.
Or maybe you do.....My poor house! It is finally starting to resemble my home again...lol!!! I must admit that it still feels weird to be deep cleaning though. I still get that slightly panicky-oh-my-goodness-I-have-homework-to-do feeling, but it is lessening in its frequency and intensity.
I wonder if it could be classified as a post traumatic college response/disorder or PTCD??? (Now before anyone with PTSD takes offense, just know that I have had/dealt with PTSD so I can make light of it)Another thing that been occupying my time is job hunting. Now that August and the end of summer break are upon us, I have been looking at the local job market with more intensity. I recently applied for a social work position at a large skilled nursing/assisted living facility (or nursing home as they were once called), and I have had two interviews so far.
They told me during the second interview that I was one of the top three applicants out of the more than 80 that applied. Nice to know that the job market is picking up, eh????
Okay, okay, that wasn't a fair assessment of the job market...or maybe it was??? I am being really picky about hours and location, and that places a lot of limitations on where I can apply.
I am not too worried about it yet though. I figure that as long as I am looking, the right job will eventually find me, right???
Well, I am off to catch up on your blogs. Have a good Sunday. : )
