Once you've got it up, keep it up...

Moving to Portland
resfirma
It looks like I'll be moving from Vermont to Oregon with a one month stop in PA...

I've been on the job hunting trail for a few weeks now.
A few callbacks here and a few rejections there.

On the plus side all the running around has gotten me into size 4 jeans.
If I get any smaller I won't be able to buy my pants at Walmart.

I started my first detox in ages last night. At least this time things should be better.
I'm all stocked with fresh fruits and veggies to keep me company.

Mission Statement and Inspiration
resfirma
To be a healthier and stronger person every day.
To know that the only thing to fear is fear itself.
To accomplish the goals I set before myself.

Should I stay or should I go?
resfirma
I feel like I haven't had enough time to think about where I'm going after these next few weeks. I've had plenty of time to think about it.

I'm trying to decide if I should move back home to look for work or if I should stay up in the NEK.

I'm sort of stuck in the middle.

Any suggestions folks?

Adrenaline Rush
resfirma
I've been working plenty lately.
I need some down time.
I was talking with my sister about starting a local book club.
I'm really excited about that.
I hope I can get together with her sometime soon to discuss it more.

With my trusty highlighter...

I've gained a new fascination with http://www.patentlyo.com/ .
I thought I'd share it because it seems to be a good basic source for information on recent events related to patent law.

I'm thinking of renting War, Inc. tonight. for background noise while I shuffle through this mass of paperwork with my trusty highlighter.

Integrity

Integrity, I've been meditating on that word plenty lately.
It requires boundaries, which is something I had been lacking in certain aspects of my life.
Today I had to make a choice that I didn't want to make on many levels.
Actually, I feel sort of sick.
I guess integrity hurts sometimes.

Good music and an update
resfirma

I've still been working on the same stuff as usual.
I think right now my resume is pretty much where I want it to be.
This means that my next step is actually sending them out and writing cover letters.

A good friend of mine sent me a video link to Dreamworld by Robin Thicke.
I really love the feel of the song.

I'm off to work some more on some research.
I'm also busy planning the North Pole Party for the SAMFund.
More on that when I get the response on my space reservation.

Just a bit of a perfectionist (edited)
resfirma
Right now I'm just feeling very unprepared for the day.
I just realized that a project I had been working on isn't exactly the way it needs to be.
I need to revise a few other things that I have placed multiple sticky notes on.
I feel like I'm drowning in an enless sea of paperwork.

I don't know if anyone else feels like an idiot when they ask for clarification on exactly what they are being asked to do.

I wonder if I'm going to make it, there is so much to do.

Edit (1:41 PM) :
The project I was freaking out about doesn't need to be done until December.
Thank GOD. I was wondering why I was given so much work for such a short amount of time.

Resume Writing
resfirma

I've been working on pulling together my resume and portfolio so that they look more "professional", which amuses me, and there are things that I constantly want to tweak.

My PSA video project is at the top of this list.
I know so much more now, I just want to go back and fix it.

My housemates are all meeting with their advisors and figuring out schedules for next semester.
It still feels so strange, not being a part of that world anymore.

Maybe if I move away from here I can make some progress.
