I have a thing with introductions. I hate them. I hate sitting in a circle of people I know or don't know and listening to obligatory introductions. Hi, I'm Eilis. Ummm... I work in a development office, graduated from college in 2008 with a degree in English, live in Youngstown, ummm... what else do you want to know? Oh, we have to include one interesting thing about us. Hmmm. I tell people that I'm not funny which just makes them laugh even harder.
I'm tired in my job, but don't want to leave. I have application forms for exotic places saved to my computer desktop. Some are half finished. Some deadlines have passed. The last one is due April 1. I still have time. They remind me that I need to get back to writing.
I don't want this to be one of those blogs that people update every day or every week for a while and then nothing for months. Those blogs annoy me. Yet, I'm probably a hypocrite because I'll probably end up doing the same thing.
