I need to state today I am frustrated. I might be grey and nerdy, but right now I’m grey and under employed. I have too much experience for some, not enough for others. I need to find a way to feed myself and my dogs, but alas, it’s getting tiring. I have spent over 4 hours applying for 3 jobs. Yes that’s 3. By the time you rework your resume, your cover letter, and jump through the sometimes endless questions on the websites (some are the same question asked 3 ways), I’m tired, and I’m frustrated.
I wish to be nerdy now. I want to play games, start a new quest accomplish some other goal than actual life goals. But I cannot. I must contend with the idea of being a cog in the wheel of capitalism if I wish to have a roof over my head and food in my belly.
So I continue on my employment quest. Hopefully I gain a new badge called “gainfully employed” so I can spend more time, in the world of nerdly pursuits.
