well if we were playing a game-show and the question was how many times can a person be a runner-up candidate consecutively before getting a job? i'm for certain i would be a TOP FIVE response. just got the nod from the small, podcasting group that i was the runner-up. words quoted: "you're a good writer and have the background that most PR firms desire."
those are "nice" (blah to that word) words but does that land me with a job with healthcare? no. am i still working from home? yes. the only thing i got going from me is this position with the U. fingers crossed, i'm almost considering rosary beads. yes, my agnositc self is considering such a passe move. but i also consider wreaskin havon in the world on a daily basis and yet i don't.
so what's the score now for jobs and me? runner-up 7, jobs landed 2. lame, lame, lame. almost like the twins losing a series to the brewers. oh wait.
damn the runner-up-ness.
