There isn't too much to write about and yet there is. I should be posting updates about stuff we are doing at the new house. For instance, we got a rain barrel, and a composter and planted some plants and vegetables. We also finally hung a few more pieces of art around the house.
I'm slowly clearing out some stuff. Take this painting for instance. I bought it from a street vendor in NYC back in the mid-90s. I thought it was cool and new agey, but really it was just a cheap piece of wall covering. I don't really have a good place to put it here, so I'm gonna toss it. What's cute is that Natassa said I should sell it.
My contract gig ends this Friday and I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I'm happy to be free of the insane-O Project Manager. On the other hand, it was easy money, of which I now need to find a new source.
I had an interview last week which was okay but I doubt I'll get a callback. The problem is most people don't know how to conduct an interview and when you ask a person who maybe does one interview every 2-3 years, it takes a while to get any momentum. They tend to talk about things that no interviewee is interested in unless they get the job. They often overexplain and over answer (sometimes the answer simply: The color Blue).
As the interviewee, you have to be polite and not interrupt. It wasn't until the very end, when we were out of time, that I realized what he was looking for. I'll try to do better next time, but next time will be a different person, a different need, and a different format.
You'll find funny, informative links and interesting pictures. Don't worry, your Facebook feed won't get overwhelmed.
