If Noah can dribble a soccer ball, I can rework my resume

Every time I see Noah in Austin, I pick up one of his little play basketballs and dribble. For Christmas, we bought him a little mini basketball goal and so when I went down this past weekend, he kept saying, "Hoop. Hoop. Hoop."

On Sunday, we took him to this tots soccer camp. Now, its not really about teaching a kid to play soccer. Its just a cool little deal that helps him with his motor skills, using a soccer ball, hula hoop, balloons, and cones.

When it was time for Noah to kick to the soccer ball, he kept picking it up to bounce it. Guess right now, Noah is more Chris Paul than Pele.


So, I've spent the last two or three days working on my resume. It's proven to be harder than I thought it would. I mean, I've spend the last 5,200 days working at one place, in one field. And so, converting my resume from a journalism seeking job to a media relations/communications type has been challenging. But, I'll make it work.


I have not been running much since the Feb. 28 Cowtown Marathon. I ran 18 miles the first week after the marathon and 28 miles last week.
My body is ready to up the mileage. Its antsy. So today, I went for an 8-mile run. Warmed up for 2 miles, then did four miles at 6:50 pace, then did a 2-mile cool down.
Did the entire 8 miles in 59 minutes flat. The 6:50 pace was not hard to keep up, and in fact, the only reason I slowed was because I had to go to the port-o-potty.
You sit in the can, in the dark, for three minutes and you come out with leg muscles that are not as loose as they once were. So, I just took it easy the last two miles.
My next race is the Oklahoma City Half Marathon. I'm feeling pretty confident that I can run it in 1:32 or better. Its not until late April. Without a job, I've now got plenty of time to train for it.

So cute! I love that picture of Noah.

Would you consider a hiring professional resume writer? I know that as a professional writer yourself, you might not think that would be necessary. However, you might need an unbiased person to help you spotlight your achievements, since you are essentially marketing yourself.

I have noticed (and correct me if I am wrong) that you tend to be a bit hard on yourself, and your resume just might end up reflecting how you judge yourself if you're not careful. (Just my two cents...Take it with a grain of salt.)

Oh how cute, Noah looks so ready. Get him that contract now :)

Hang in there with the resume I'm sure it will come together.

It would be weird for me to track down a new job, too. I've been working here for over 7 years, and it's become comfortable. Still a pain in the ass, but tolerable. Have a good week, and don't forget to drink some wine. Maybe that will loosen up the resume writing.
