looking for a J – O – B

that’s how my dad says it: J – O – B. like it’s a bad word that should not be mentioned in front of the kids, so he spells it out. and he would always say it with shivers running down his spine.

well, i’m looking for one.

i’ll be done with school this december (yee-haw!), and i see that light at the end of the tunnel (to be followed by another dark tunnel), and i’m having these jitters about getting a, er, j – o – b. i already received one rejection e-mail from this investment company in NYC, i have this one promising offer in another investment company that i really want to get into, and i just declined about five job offers here in colorado (one of which is an executive position – whatever that means – in a target distribution center in pueblo!). i haven’t heard from about twenty companies, possibly more, that i’ve applied for.

i know it’s early, two months til december, but i somehow want that security – that i have a job in the east coast when i get there. so far, i have this little plan with ate i.n some time mid december. i fly over there on a friday night, go on-line and look for rooms for rent in manhattan, check them out on saturday, and hopefully move in that sunday. no time wasted! the only thing that doesn’t fit that plan is a job! this plan will work well granting i already have a job that monday! 😆 but seriously, i could probably have that week off, just goofing around NYC, getting to know the place, figuring out how to go from work and back home, looking for a grocery shop place.

new grad jitters. i kinda love it.

michelle branch, til i get over you

Every time I feel alone
I can blame it on you
And I do, oh
You got me like a loaded gun
Golden sun and the sky so blue, oh
We both know that we want it
But we both know you left me no choice

(Chaque fois que tu t’en va)
You just bring me down
(Je pretend que tout va bien)
So I’m counting my tears ’til I get over you

Sometimes I watch the world go by
I wonder what it’s like, oh
To wake up every single day
Smile on your face
You never tried (you never tried),oh
We both know we can’t change it
But we both know we’ll just have to face it

(Chaque fois que tu t’en va)
You just bring me down
(Je pretend que tout va bien)
So I’m counting my tears ’til I get over you

If only I could give you up
Would I want to let you off from this soapbox, baby?
We both know that we want it
But we both know you left me no choice

(Chaque fois que tu t’en va)
You just bring me down
(Je pretend que tout va bien)
So I’m counting my tears ’til I get over you

Chaque fois que tu t’en va
Je pretend que tout va bien

We both know that I’m not over you
I’m not over you
