Application. Process.

I wish I had better news to report on the job front, but I haven't made any concrete leads just yet. I'm applying to lots of places online and in person and that's all I can do. Meet people. Tell them I'm new here and looking for work. Make connections. Apply, apply, apply. Keep trying.  It's going to be so awesome to land a job in a progressive company where I can grow and learn and not have to seek employment for years to come. Bliss.

So that's boring news to you, stressful for me. I've spent years actively looking for work to such a degree that I sometimes question if leaving my job in Corporate America was the right choice, though I know it is because I've found a new direction to be happy and excited about. I need to feel more confident that I am forging a great career path and remember that I'm working as hard as I can toward success. Getting to Oregon was a huge undertaking and I made that happen. Now I just need to land a job and then work on finding a place to live. Easy, right?

Fun stuff

By the end of last week I was worn out. I applied for about 45 jobs and that left me brain dead. I worked on finding work until about one in the afternoon then headed over to THE OCEAN. Dude, I am so close to the coast that I was able to head there, explore and be back in less than six hours. Fancy!

Lady date!

Val is holding a cup of poop. I forgot to bring bags with me and she saved the day when Nico suddenly went number two and I didn't know what to do.

Nico's first trip to the ocean and she loved it!

Nico loved the ocean! I hadn't taken her there before and she became so spunky and kept running into the water and then back to shore with the waves. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to take her back again.

Yesterday I headed over to the Portland Art Museum because they had free admission . I was definitely spoiled living near Forest Park in St. Louis, having free access to their Art Museum, History Museum and Zoo. Admission to Portland's Art Museum is normally $15. That's enough to deter me, so I felt fortunate to stumble on the information that Sunday had free admission.

Unfortunately, I can't show you any photos at this time because flickr's iPhone app is horrible. I have more problems with that thing and it seems silly -- their whole business is photos, but their app locks up almost every time I use it. And it still drives me bonkers that they removed the capability of uploading videos directly from an iPhone.

I must be tired because I'm getting cranky about flickr's iPhone app.

Goodnight, Moon. Zzzzz.
