Update on life, liberty and the pursuit of a new job...

It's been a while since I posted an update on my job search. Probably because there is NOTHING to report. Ha!

Well, that sounds a little discouraging, and truthfully, it is. I have put out several applications in and around the area where we want to live - public libraries, academic libraries, librarian positions, higher paying non-librarian positions, full time, part time, basically anything that I am qualified for and think that I have a possibility of getting.

But alas...

I did have a phone interview a couple of weeks ago, but I was sent an email the other day saying that I wasn't quite the candidate they needed, and they went another way. Boo. At least I got an interview, though. I applied for "the PERFECT job" a month or so ago (Full time, children's librarian, doing exactly what I have been doing for the past 5 years), and I didn't even get a call. Bastards. Do they not know what they are missing out on?!?! I'm FABULOUS!!!!

But, whatever. I am just pissy because my dear husband has already moved without me (we decided that both of us moving without a job/benefits is simply the stupidest thing ever). He transferred with his company, and is currently working and looking for a place for us to live. Which is not easy because 1) everything in our price range is CRAP, and 2) we have NO idea where I am going to be working, which makes choosing a place to live terribly difficult. **sigh**

Anyway, that's basically what's going on here in RealLibrarianLand. Boooooo-ring, right?

So, I'll leave you with a clip of something that totally cracked me up. But only because I love the Muppets.

So where are you moving to?

Looking for a job can be a soul-sucking experience. You keep your head up - you are FABULOUS!

Oooh! And I also love those old blue aliens that used to go, "yep, yep, yep" and "nope, nope, nope"! Old muppets are squee! New muppets, not so much.

O hang in there! It is always fustrating and hard moving and finding a new job. But you'll get there. I'll be thinking of you. And LOVE the muppets :)

Good luck on the job search!

The pink muppets look like the villains from Mario, I can't remember which one but it would shoot eggs at you. Random observation of the day!
