As of Late...

...I have been desperate for inspiration. I think the sun is a natural inspiration, and like I wrote about last week the sun has not been out to play a whole lot lately. But nothing beats the feeling of true, pure unadulterated inspiration. It can be as simple as a great hair day for me. It can be a worthy headline of "Recent Grad Turn Business Woman Overnight."  It can be a great outfit ensemble, or a reminder that I am talented and worthy of a great job. Sometimes it's a romantic moment with my boyfriend. Sometimes it is an intellectually stimulating conversation with a friend. Sometimes it's when I do Zumba at the gym, or line dance my best friends by my side. Often it is a beautiful scene in nature or crafting something. But sometimes you feel uninspired, or a little life-less at times. I even wish you could see the picture I am about to paint for you, only I wouldn't dare subject myself to the humiliation of actually allowing you the view. Regardless... here I sit at 12:00 in the afternoon, after spending my morning watching The Oscars on demand because I missed it last night when I went to see "Night Beds" with my boo boo bear. I am sitting at my kitchen table (oh wait, I mean my parents kitchen table) in my OSU football sweatpants, tank top and slippers as I sit to apply for jobs. What a picture. Someone should do a reality series on my life. I can't guarantee it's success, however I can guarantee that many people my age are in this exact boat. We wake up in the morning, and we search desperately for the motivation and the inspiration to sit at our computers and send out resume after resume, cover letter after cover letter. With every sent button touched, we hope and we pray that our story and our skill level comes to life somehow on that paper. My Job: To view this time as exciting. Difficulty Level: High. Not knowing where I will be working, what I will be doing, where I will be living. The unknowns are apart of your 20's I guess. I get that. And at times I do a great job of going along with the excitement. I want a job to inspire me. I want to do work that I am proud of. I want to love the weekends, but not mind Monday mornings. So here I sit. A walk sounds nice right about now. Probably a prayer walk. I'm going to go find a dog and take it for a walk.

Love and Resumes
