One man's trash...

Is really just trash.



But my family managed to pawn off quite a lot of our junk onto some poor unsuspecting garage salers last weekend. We were expecting calls from angry parents once they discovered that we had given their children "gifts" of old puppy dolls and candles. They can have their own garage sale in the spring and charge more.

What else is new with me? Let's see... I.Hate.Job.Hunting. It's so unbelievably frustrating. I had my interview almost two weeks ago and they said they would reach their decision at the end of last week. As of now, I'm just waiting for my rejection letter which is sure to arrive in the mail tomorrow. It's disappointing, but not the end of the world.

I had another phone interview with an educational travel company based in Denver. The interview went fine, I think, and in about two weeks, they'll get ahold of me to see about an in-person meeting. The job itself would begin in January, so there isn't a huge rush. I've also started sending off resumes to random places again.

I'm beginning to feel like Izzy - caged and tired... yet fairly content. Can someone scratch my belly?



PS. Yes, that is a SpongeBob doll and a pumpkin head. And, yes, they were already sold. No emails, please.

Do you find it at all weird to have a garage sale in your tiny town - letting everyone you probably know see all the junk you're embarassed to have? I mean, I feel silly enough giving my stuff to Goodwill. Let alone townsfolk :)

If you still don't have a job a year from now, we can be roommates in my parents' basement. We can job hunt, watch Grey's Anatomy, and eat ice cream for the next 10 years. Sound like a plan?

Carly--- Yep, it's a bit weird. My mom doesn't like seeing her old clothes around town. I could care less about that stuff. You also have to worry about who gave you gifts...

Amy--- That is an awesome plan! The new Grey's is tonight! Whoo Hoo! Are your parents okay with all-night raves?

I'm sure my parents would love it.
