the itch to ride
Let's see, riding makes me feel alive and strong (except for the end of the ride, which leaves me weak and tired - but that's the point, isn't it?), gets me out breathing fresh air and seeing sites I haven't ever seen before (I love scoping out new rides).
Looking for a job makes me feel worthless and impotent. My dad would have told me to get out there and "beat the street" looking for a job, but that's not how it works anymore. Now, if one wants a job, they troll through Craigslist, Jobdango, and all of the individual companies' HR sites.
I've sent countless emails, worked what few connections I have, and I've barely gotten a nibble. I was interviewed for a position at a web design firm a few weeks ago, but haven't heard ANYTHING. Do I send them another email?
I applied for a job last week that I think would be perfect for me, but I haven't heard back from them (then again, the closing date isn't until a week from tomorrow, so I shouldn't expect anything until then).
OK... so back to my original question. Ride, or sit in front of my computer? I think I already answered myself... see you after the ride.
