My job search journey

Post  Admin on Wed Feb 09, 2011 5:56 am

Is it bad that I am not looking forward to search for work?
I find gaming more fun (of course) but also I find it easier to achieve high status where in real life it is full of disappointments and getting no where and working my ass off just to be stepped on. In a game I find it a lot easier to just drop it if I am not having fun but in the real world it reflects bad on you if you quit a job without another one lined up. And with the economy today .. I can't afford to get that. So for me I am not looking forward to the search....

I know I shouldn't game so much but I guess I just don't want to deal with all the negative stuff right now. I will search for a job ... later .. when the weather warms up .. when more job opportunities present themselves .. when opportunity knocks on my door loud enough for me to take off my headphones and open the door ...
