Project 365 - Day 9

I'm beginning to think I may have been a tad unrealistic in my expectations of finding employment after leaving the Apple job back in October. Another month of not having had any luck whatsoever on that score is drawing to a close and it's getting increasingly harder to motivate myself now that I seem to have lost the knack of writing cover letters that prompt recruiters to invite me to an interview at least ...I haven't had any such invitation in the last 8 weeks. In fact, I'm lucky to get any reaction at all, even if it is just to tell me my application has been unsuccessful for whatever reason.

It's not the money worries - which are luckily still hypothetical at the moment and nothing some careful budgetting wouldn't be able to take care of; it's the daily interaction with colleagues and customers that I miss, the feeling that one is part of a group and is making oneself useful and just doing something, as opposed to this enforced idleness. Much as I love to read, it's not an activity that is all that fulfilling in itself.

Anyway, for today's picture I give you: lunch!

I really feel for you in the job-hunting, even though I have nothing more practical to add.

Also - I do love kippers and that is a really nice picture.

Yes, I thought they were aestethically pleasing, the way they were lying there, waiting for me to butcher them (further) ;-)

I hope something comes up soon. I know it can be disheartening to not hear anything back from so many applications. *hug*

Oh well, one of these days, eh?

Kippers--haven't had any in ages. They were something my Dad liked, and I'd help him eat his, usually on the weekend when I was growing up...

Anyway, I do hope something will come through for you. Sooner than soon.
