Trying to get a J-O-B!

June 13, 2007

That’s it. I officially feel like a loser. I had four interviews in the past week and a half and have had no offers. Poop. I guess I’m just not what people are looking for. I hate that. In the mean time I’m just sitting around not making any money. I’m bored and lonely and I hate it.

I have been painting quite a bit. Soon, I plan on posting some of my paintings on here. I hope y’all like them.

On another note, James and I have made a decision. Well, we think we have. We have two years to finalize it but I think we’re going to move to Denver when I graduate. The plan is for both of us to go to Denver Seminary. If you know us then you know this could change but this is what we’re going with for now. It feels so weird, having a plan and all. I’m used to everything being in limbo.

This decision is really why I need a job. Really, all of our bills are paid with James’ salary so it’s not the end of the world if I don’t work right now. However, anything that I do make in the next two years will go into savings for us to go to school together. The more we could make now the better.

This feels like a boring blog. It is. It just shows how blah I am these days. I hate it when people say blah but I couldn’t think of another word to describe it. It’s like I’m operating at a lower volume or something. I’m like a black and white silent movie.

Yesterday I took the MMPI. The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. It was like 575 questions to determine if I’m crazy or not. They were all true or false so I guess they weren’t really questions. Just statements. Here’s some examples, “My father is a good man,” “I have nightmares every few nights,” “I have had one or more fainting spells in my life,” “I think most everyone would lie to get ahead,” “I hear voices that other people and animals don’t seem to hear.” “I would like to be a florist.” It took two hours to take and it kind of stressed me out. I’m excited to find out from Dr. English what it means. I hope I’m not nuts.

Well, I supposed that’s all for now. Please pray I find a job and my mood picks up a bit. I hope to post the paintings in the next week. Get ready though, it’s not landscapes or beautiful pictures this time. I usually am inspired by a broad range of things. A couple of months ago it was trees, now it’s monsters, fish, and lizards in bright colors.

    Congratulations! I look forward to meeting you and your husband when you come? Will that be this fall or later?

    Woops, change the first question mark to a period!

  3. Terrible institution that Denver Seminary. You leave the poor girl alone, Bumberg.
