crappy wifi, but sun

I forgot what sunshine was after the rain soaked past few days we've had in Central MN. I couldn't figure out why I suddenly couldn't see my computer screen. The sun - o how I've missed you. You almost make me want to forgive this b & n for crappy wifi and the guy a few tables away from watching movies without earphones. Almost.

I was in this place a year ago. This horrible big decision making place. Now I've got more big decision to make about my future and what I'm doing when I leave the frozen tundra of the north in less than 2 weeks. I wish I could just rock, paper, scissors my future. It'd be much easier.

Google logo

My hopes of getting anything accomplished today were dashed when I opened google this morning and discovered that the logo is an actually guitar that you can play...and record song

I'm in a glass case of emotion.

I'm searching for jobs while listening to Irish jigs and sitting in the glass room at the library. People stare as they walk by. Weeks ago, I would have been a usual sight - someone appearing to study. Now that school is out around here, the librarian looked at us quizzically when we requested the room. Now I'm sitting here by myself pretending that I'm applying for jobs.

Job searching is the last thing I want to do right now. My heart's not jumping at any of the prospects I find and the last thing I want is a dead end job that I only take to make money. After this year, that would kill me., the website that's becoming my best friend and worst enemy, shows me mostly development jobs. I've been there and done that. Never again. Maybe I'm being too picky.

I want to work in Ohio. I'm targeting my search to the Cleveland area, but there's this tiny part of me that wants to throw it all out the window and just go overseas. I've always wanted to live and work in another least for a year. But, it's probably not the right now. Not the right time to pack up and move out of the country. I suppose I don't have to find a job in the Cleveland area - or even OH for that matter. That's just where I envision myself living and working. I could apply for the americorps position in the Cleveland area that looks interesting. But, it's not exactly what I want to do. I would welcome a job in refugee or immigration services.
