I met with my job counselor this week and we both agreed that my job hunt needed more focus and attention – in particular networking. I went over my 30 second commercial with him and he recommended adding more hard skills. There were many other recommendations about my LinkedIn profile, moving to a more active job search through networking rather than looking at job postings etc…
So I started to make a plan on how to tackle all of this. I woke up late although I got to bed at 10:30 PM. I actually woke up around 2 AM and didn’t get back to sleep until 4 AM. I slept through my alarm. After a healthy breakfast of oatmeal, nuts and berries, I did the dishes and brushed my teeth. I noticed the bathroom needed to be tidied up. I wiped the faucets, sink, the shower stall, the mirror, the toilet and, swept the floors and tossed out the old towels. I decided to mop the bathroom floor too.
I dragged out the bucket and the mop that spins. The bathroom looked decent after that. While it won’t win any awards, people won’t be scared to use it. I even use those Lysol wipes. Then I looked at the hardwood floors. It was getting a bit sticky. So I spent the next hour just doing a basic mop up. I’ve found over time the best way to clean my floors is hand wiping it using a micro fibre cloth and hot water. But I have to get down on my hands and knees to do that. That’s too tiring and I’ll save that for another day when I feel like it.
So I did a quick wipe that and the hardwood floors looked a bit better. It’s now after 1PM. I then debated if cleaning was a form of procrastination. Since I’m a Gemini – the debate raged on forever. So I decided to blog.
I best get back to my job hunting.
