The Wizard of Boom

[-begin transmission-]

Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep. In Orlando. Still. I mean, I do live here. Still sort of feels like a vacation, though. A really sucky vacation where I have to look for a job all the time but can't find one. Which is why I haven't posted much. No, not because I'm so busy looking for work. But because I've always been less comfortable posting the negative things that are happening in my life. I'd prefer to just hold off until I have a job. And then I can post, "Hey everybody, I have a job!" That would be nice. But alas.

Not that I'm giving up or anything, mind you. In fact, right at the moment, at 11:00pm on a Sunday night, I'm writing this while killing time waiting to call a guy back about a job. That's how dedicated I am.

And in between, I'm trying to enjoy Orlando. Which really is a great town, outside of the complete lack of job openings. I'm going to Disney World, like, three time a week. (Hey, I'm unemployed and I have an annual pass.) Playing mini golf here and there. Visiting family (both mine and Misty's). And just generally trying not to think about my mounting bills while constantly adding to them. So that's fun.

Hopefully, my next post will be, "Hey, I got a job!" And it will be less than a month from now.

Octopus's Garden

So, the only real downside to moving to Orlando is that I now have to look for a job. (See, I already had a job where I was before. A nice job. An easy job. A relatively well-paying job.)

Anyway, today I had an interview for a front desk position at a hotel with 2,000 rooms. I had to take a shuttle from the parking garage to the lobby. There were at least eight employees working the desk. They said it was a slow day.

I have no idea if I'll get the job. But if I do, I'm pretty sure I could invite you to come visit and you'd never find me.

So That's Where It's Got To

[-begin transmission-]

Oh, hey, look, my blog.

So...I live in Orlando now. Yeah, sorry I didn't mention that earlier. Anyway, everything's cool so far, except that I don't have a job. But I do have a Walt Disney World annual pass--and, quite frankly, I think that's better anyway.

How are you?
