In regards to my new job I have yet to attain, I think my standards may be too high. I also need to hone in on what I really want. Let me elaborate:lLast night I had a dream about interviewing for some advertising job. Ten people applied, and five got the job. Myself not being one. In my dream, I asked what I could have done to better my chances. The woman said to me that I need to be more specific in my skills and passion. I swear this dream was telling me something profound and insightful. My own brain working to help me find a career. The problem is, I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for. I can outline the way I want to feel everyday: excited, motivated, passionate, creative, educated and relevant. Now how do I apply that to my job hunt. Considering I am applying to anything and everything that looks remotely interesting, I am not sure how to be more specific.
In other news, I have decided (and not because it’s the cool thing to do in the new year) to get in better shape and eat healthier. This has been one of my goals since departing from Florida, as living there was not a healthy environment in regards to partying and eating crappy food. I am starting off simple, by making food at home and making better choices. Today I had my last Diet Pepsi….it’s killing me already. In addition, I also went to the doctor to get a check-up (thank you free Canadian Healthcare!) and get blood work done to make sure I’m not really a vampire and don’t know about it yet. I’m tracking what I eat, not eating past 8pm and drinking water, tea and coffee only without sugar or sweeteners. I also must get at least 30 mins. of physical, sweat inducing activity per day. No matter what! I’m starting off well, this is day two and it’s been going fine. I have 1500 calories to eat each day, so if I want McDonald’s, I have to starve for the rest of the day if the meal goes over that allotment. I’ll post my progress in the next few days. Almost forgot one thing…no alcohol except for special occasions or one glass of wine with dinner. No exceptions!
