I guess I could post about really interesting, deep things. That would work.
But I like to talk about me, being the narcissistic, self-loving (and redundant!) creation of North America that I am.
Well, I recently got a few things published (thanks to my awesome Editor-in-Eggness, Cassandra!) and I’ve been over the moon about it (especially after receiving copies in the mail, thus solidifying its realness factor). The editing process can sometimes be lengthy, but when you finally see your work “out there,” well, it’s pretty darn exciting.
First, it was a piece about fielding weird interview questions in t.o.night, then it was the oh-so-lengthy-piece-that-I-thought-would-never-end-but-did-and-I-was-sad-about-it about working in healthcare in Canada on TalentEgg, and today it was about the realities of job-hunting in the electronic age (also on TE)!
To be honest, I feel like this is just the beginning of a long, ever-widening road of struggle and success. I love writing, I love perfecting my skills, and I love succeeding at both.
RANDOM SEGUE CUZ I FEEL LIKE IT: I went shopping on Sunday and bought b-e-a-u-tiful clothes that even my mother approved of (ladies, if you impress a frugal lady with your cloth, be happy). I never post pictures of clothes because I don’t have anywhere to take pictures of them, so… that’s kind of an SOL moment for you guys. Needless to say, they’re all very classic, and maybe I’ll post a picture of myself wearing them eventually (if my narcissism ever overcomes humility and my o-so-humble nature).
In other news, I’m getting business cards made up by my WICKEDAWESOME friend Katrina for TUTORING – yes, ladies and gentlemen, after my hiatus from the working world ends (end of the winter term in April) I’m going to start tutoring little children (and perhaps not so little) in the language of the world.
This can either end in absolute disaster, or frantically wild success.
Guess which one I’m hoping for?
I actually think it’s a pretty sneaky move of me, since I’m
good fantastic with kids and I love English (and its grammar, from now on at least). I’ve also been up to other sneaky things, but all will be revealed in due time. (Hehehe.)
As for some shout outs, because it bumps up my good deeds of the day mark (and because I’m obsessed)… I’ve been reading a lot of the Fab Files lately, because well.. not only did she graduate from York, everything she writes is interesting and well-written and a lot of it is ABOUT writing, which clearly strokes my curiousity-bone. She’s currently searching out the best and most promising journalists for her students (!!) to take an example of, and I encourage you to comment if you know of someone worthy!
My second and last bloggerific obsession is Hugo Schwyzer: a feminism professor in the States that is so well-versed that everything he says has that queer quality to it that it instantaneously changes my mind about whatever opinion I thought I had before I read his posts.
I can do good things for other people (although the rise in traffic from my meekly blog post will be close to nothing, I like sharing the things I read with the people who care enough to read me!) and forget about myself for one freaking second.
