Real Life

I’m currently out in New Hampshire, with my wonderful girlfriend. Things are stressful - lots of stuff to be done, taking care of the girls, taking care of life in general. I’m falling more in love each day. I love being near the person I love and finally being able to relax. When I’m only out here for a week, relaxing isn’t exactly the easiest thing in the world. When I’m out here for the summer - and likely continuing to be here through the rest of the year - it’s much better.

I’ve decided, barring some catastrophic failure to obtain employment, that I don’t particularly want to go back to Champaign in the fall. I actually made this decision quite a while ago, but now all you wonderful people get to hear it.

Still working on projects online, looking for a job out here. Applied to a couple things on Monster.com yesterday. Does anyone ever get hired through there, or is it just a big scam to get your personal info? I’ve also been looking at jobs in the paper, and submitted a couple email applications to places around here from the paper for office stuff.

It would be nice if I could get a job doing something I liked, but I know my chances around here are pretty slim. One of the jobs I applied for fits perfectly - Linux/open source knowledge plus W3C spec for an HTML design site. Although I don’t exactly have a portfolio to show off, I’d be really good at working on something like that. However, it’s not likely I’ll get it, since I’m sure there are tons of other equally or better qualified candidates for the position.

Welcome to the Real World.

Anyway, life is good. I’m enjoying being with Jess, even though it does exhaust me. Going home this weekend for Dave’s graduation and to pick up stuff (like my computer hooray!) and then leaving to come back on Memorial Day evening. Other than that, no big plans other than trying to get a job.
