I've been reading this article and liking it - I'm a bit mired in the Plato stuff, but otherwise it's an interesting read.
I'm trying to figure out what to do now. I should go buy some milk and cereal. I should finish filling out my applications. I should lie down and read for a while.
I have an appointment with a temp agency next week, made after the woman and I had a promising conversation:
"So, do you have any computer skills?"
"Well, I'm expert on both Windows and Mac systems, I've taken classes on Microsoft Works, Macromedia and Adobe programs, Final Draft..."
"Oh, that's good-"
"And I think I type about 70 words a minute."
"Is Tuesday good for you?"
The temping business is, I've heard, ridiculously slow these days, and I'm not optimistic. This sounds like one of those young overambitious companies that exceeds its limits. But hey, there's always a chance.
