2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!
Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.
The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.
On the job hunt!
I want to end 2009 on a good note. After being laid off from my job earlier in the year, my original plan was to take some time off and relax while collecting my unemployment benefits and look for a new job after Anime Boston 2009.
And then my Dad got leukemia. So, that plan was scrapped as I had to look after him after he came back home, to make sure he's okay until he can get back to normal. Now that he's okay and the leukemia's no where in sight, I'm now resuming my plan to go look for a job.
I do have one trick up my sleeve: the Internet! The state's unemployment office website has this big job listing database where all available jobs in the state are posted. So, I just type in a few things and I see what jobs in my town that are available for the picking. I have already filled out 2 applications online and I'm filling out my 3rd as of right now.
With my Dad out as a ride, I'm limited to public transit, but there's an stop near my house via request, meaning I call them and request that the bus swing by that stop near my house. So, with me stuck using public transit, I'm heavily searching for jobs in my town only.
With that, I'll see if that job listing site has any new jobs in my town that I can go after.
