Awhile ago I had a bit of angst about writing my resume and how to handle the iwilldare.com factor. Well, today I solved that problem.
I had a second interview for a potential gig and in that interview I blabbed about iwilldare.com and how I started it and why. The interviewer thought it was pretty cool and seemed to be impressed by my innovation lo those many years ago starting my own Web site. She even laughed when I told her how I was inspired to start the site because I made an animated gif. From humble beginnings and all that.
In other news (besides the fact that Bret and Ambre broke up), July is kicking my ass. It’s a bit ironic. When I was working, summers were always hellishly busy preparing for our September launches. Now, I’m not working so much and it’s still hellishly busy. Between class, the babysitting, and working on a new super-secret Web project, I barely have time to sit in my pajamas and watch A Different World reruns. The weekends are no better. I’ve even gotten to the point where I am double-booking weekends.
Being a shut-in, I generally have a rule where I can only be social one day during the weekend. If I do something Saturday you can bet your sweet bippy Sunday will be spent talking to myself and wondering why it is I ever have to leave Supergenius HQ. Since this rule is observed by most of the people in my life, they have gotten all smarter than me and have started asking me to do things on Fridays. Very sneaky people, I am on to you.
In still other news I’ve been stuck reading the most boring book to ever bore (sorry Largeheartedboy), Joseph O’Neill’s Netherland. I’m pretty sure this book is the cure for insomnia I’ve been waiting for all my life.
