Mental Prep

Things to do tomorrow (if Something Bad Happens in my life):

  1. File for unemployment immediately. The money will help supplement my savings while I look for a new job.
  2. Go for a bike ride. It’s been a long year and I haven’t had the time to ride my bike that I would like. A good, long ride would do me good both mentally and physically.
  3. Clean the apartment. It needs it.
  4. Update the ol’ resume. It needs it, too.
  5. Decide what to put in the portfolio and build an online site (not related to ResurrectionSong) to support the printed bits.
  6. Watch Anchorman. I’m guessing I’ll need a good laugh.
  7. Give blood. There might be an increased need after Katrina hits. Even if there isn’t, giving blood is a good thing--and a small thing--that most of us can easily do that has the potential to help others.
  8. Don’t drink. That’s something I don’t need.
  9. Get my references together and start the networking machine.
  10. Get dry cleaning done. Must be ready for the interviewing process.

This could be a tough week.

Thanks, Slick. I’m sure it’ll be okay--I just really hate looking for a new job.

Dude! When you’re done with that resume can I borrow it?

Dude, even if something bad doesn’t happen, you forgot to add, “Invoice Don and Kelly” to your list this week.  I’m also buying you lunch this week as you’ll recall, so let’s pick a day--Wednesday or Friday?

Best of luck on another tough week.  You’re a real talent, so let’s get together for some real brainstorming this week. No more playin’!

Also, if something bad does happen, don’t let it affect your fantasy football drafting abilities during this critical nerd-season.  Stay focused dude on what really matters.

Give me a call if you need anything.

Another good thing to keep in mind is that I, personally, know several brilliant and talented people who have been canned by that company and then went on to bigger and better things. Come to think of, I also know several complete dumbshits who got canned by that company and then went on to bigger and better things!

Awww. Z.  :::crossing fingers:::  :::saying prayers:::

Walter, I’d be happy to temporarily donate my resume to you. Not sure you’d like the work all that much.

Jerry, it’s amazing how much talent is no longer involved in that company. It’s ridiculous that some people think that you can maintain quality by throwing away experience, vision, and better business intelligence than they themselves can muster.

Don, I’ll remember to add that to my to-do list. And since I’m not actually playing fantasy football this year, I’ll have to content myself with seeing what kind of team you put together this year.

Lunch Friday?

And thanks for the thoughts, everyone. I should clarify: I’m not really overly upset at this point. I’m just trying to be mentally prepared for what happens next.

When I get depressed, I have a tendency to become even more introverted than I am normally (and a certain former roommate of mine could probably vouch for my privacy issues)--I’m trying to put something in place to help keep me accountable for not withdrawing and losing track of myself.

If that makes any sense at all.

Hey Zomby, just remember...If they’ll give ME a AD position...your in line for like...what...president of Venezuala or something?  Well maybe not Venezuala but president of something...and no it WILL NOT BE president of AA…

on Aug 29 2005 @ 07:36 PM

Hey, cool. Presidents get groupies, don’t they?
