With the new job, it’s been hard to keep up with anything I want to do outside of work. I’ve continued with my jogging, though, and this morning I ran a 6:30 AM 10K (in addition to about a 30-minute walk to and fro) with a local running group. I’ve ran that distance a few times now and I want to keep improving my distance and speed. It felt like my best run so far. I feel like this [see music video in post below], but insert “day” for “nite.” Was so excited (see what I did there) about my run that I dance-walked back. Any onlookers probably thought I was crazy, but I don’t care. Instead of dancing, though, I’m going back to bed for a few more winks.
MOVING DAY…Have to move out of my summer sublet today. It was down to the wire, but I finally found a place. Negotiated a place until December, so it gives me a little flexibility. Have a new place to live for now. So, I’m extending my stay in Boston for at least 4 more months. NEXT STEP: Find a permanent J-O-B! NOTE: Pics are of the old place; I haven’t gotten there, yet.
Taking a little hiatus back to Texas. Not because I don’t like Boston, but because the job search gets stressful. Looking forward to spending some quality time with family and relaxing my mind. Plan to read this on the plane. Whether I stay or go, I still want to get to know the Best of Boston.
Another day, another interview./urbancoolstyle 8/5/14
This one was for a part-time position were the dress for the position is more casual because it’s a more labor-intensive job. That’s why I didn’t go all out and wear the suit again. With night and weekend shifts, it seems to be the kind of job with a lot of turnaround, so after a training session it will be a matter of whether I want to do the job or not. And, then, the question becomes do I find a second part-time job, continue to look for a permanent full-time position, or continue working with temp agencies to find placements? All this while not having a place to live yet past the end of August. Time will tell. We’ll see what happens. Will Freddie be able to make his stay in Boston work or will he have to go back to Texas? The long-sleeve collared button-up shirt is cream, the vest brown, tie black, pants tan, socks black (not visible) with brown Sketchers with two maroon stripes on both sides and tan laces that match the pants.
