Flea infestation

I hate fleas.  My apartment is infested with them.  One flea bomb has already been attempted, but there wasn't a lot of success.  So another one will be tried today.  I hate knowing that we have fleas.  It makes me feel like I'm a dirty, messy person!  And I'm not!  Well, I'm not dirty anyways.  The thought of little creepy bouncing bugs grosses me out.  I'm so paranoid that when I sit on the couch, they are going to attack me, and then I start to itch. 

Cockroaches I can handle because you don't see them very often.  But fleas!?  Yuck!

Any ideas for how to get rid of them?

Job search

Job interviews are interesting things.  You go in, not really sure if you want the job because you don't even know what the job is (at least that has been my experience the last several times) and you have to make yourself look great so that they will at least consider you for the position.  I had an impromtu interview yesterday.  The position sounds kind of cool, yet it doesn't pay well at all and doesn't offer benefits.  It's probably pride, but I just can't take a job that doesn't pay well after investing so much time and money in an college education.  I know, I should be more humble.  I just need a job at this point and I should not be so picky!  Another job that I interviewed for sounds really interesting and I think the interview went well.  I think I made myself look pretty good and like the company couldn't live without me (okay, slight exageration).  But, I still haven't heard back from them.  It hasn't been a full week yet, but I was hoping to hear something, even if just another rejection.  At least I would know.  Yesh, I will be glad when this process is over!  But then again, does it ever really end?

Computer literacy

I feel like a bonafied computer geek today!  I figured out how to add some links to my blog all by myself!  Check out the different links, they're fun and will help give you a better idea of who I am. 

I can't stop yawning!

Wow, it's already Monday morning and I'm at work, trying my hardest to stay awake.  It's a challenge.  I find myself wondering, "why in the world am I so tired?!"  I didn't do anything super strenuous this weekend; maybe that's the problem.  I'm getting too much relaxation on the days I don't work and it's causing my body to forget how to stay awake.  Hmmm, this is something I will have to investigate further.
One fun thing I did this weekend was hang out with some super cool women on Saturday night.  We went to a slightly overpriced (but delicious) restaurant and just talked and talked.  I love it when you can instantly connect with people you haven't seen in a long time and it's like you just saw them a few days ago.  I crave those kinds of connections.  I haven't experienced that in so long.  I have friends here who I enjoy spending time with and who are very dear to me, but there is just something about those old friends; I think it has to do with the time you have invested in deepening those friendships.  I look forward to seeing my new friendships become like that.

Friday night

It has been a crazy day!  I'm only working on Mondays and Fridays right now as I look for a full-time job but it seems like a whole week's worth of work is packed into those two days.  The morning wasn't too bad, but then I had to race off to a job interview.  I think it went well, but they said they are interviewing a number of candidates so I'm not getting my hopes up.  Too much disappointment already with interviews...Anyways, I raced back after the interview because I was helping show some new employees the importance of the department I work in.  It was good, but very tiring; two hours on my feet talking about Customer Service.  Then, I finally get back to my desk and it's ring! email! ring! email! constantly until almost 6pm.  I know, I shouldn't complain; at least I don't have a chance to get bored, right?  I need a better attitude.
So, it's Friday evening and do I have plans for the weekend?  Of course not!  My social life is in need of a serious makeover!!!  Help!

I'm a Blogger...or something

Okay, I'm not sure how this whole Blog thing works, but I will try it and see how it goes.  Karin tempted me to want to try it out, and it is kind of fun to think that people will read my thoughts.  I don't know how interesting they will be, but if it keeps someone entertained, I'm glad to be able to provide that.
