Like sending thank you notes. I've written them, but in my joblessness I've failed to actually mail them. Rest assured I've gotten ones out to potential employers, I've just done a terrible job of getting ones to my friends. It's very un-me like.
Also in the realm of thank-you notes, I've yet to say a great BIG thank you to Trish for guest-blogging for me last weekend while I was away. Her post was so beautiful and I absolutely loved it, and yet this is the first time I'm mentioning it here.
How I've allowed time to get away from me this summer, I'll never know.
Can being unemployed make you busier than being employed? It sure feels that way. Maybe it's because structure is missing from my life right now, despite the fact that I'm trying to live by a schedule. Maybe it's because networking, finding open positions and tailoring cover letters really takes up an insane amount of time. Who knows. All I know is that I need to improve on my follow-through post-haste!
Since proper manners are a very important part of scoring a future husband, I have the perfect giveaway to accompany my problems...
