Handy Advice

From the desk of Rachel Sanchez:

Guess what?! It's the return of.......WORK BLOGGING! I have only a few things to say so let's get right down to business. Shall we?

I came to the realization today that my resume is buckets and loads better than some people's, even though it lists sarcasm as a skill. Excuse me? The fact that you were homecoming queen should not be anywhere NEAR your resume. Just a handy tip for you. You know who you are.

I have reconciled my idea of fall to the cold hard fact that it just won't be happening in Houston, nor will any type of weather resembling anything crisp or chilly occur. This morning I received a voicemail from a dear friend indicating that there was a blizzard in the north where he lives. Salt in the wound, I tell you, salt in the wound....

A good read for you is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. A good meal for you is anything fried or battered, dipped in a tasty sauce. A good meal for me falls in that category and shall be named sweet and sour chicken. I need some. Need. A good task for you? Skipping. And finally, a good purchase for you: new dress clothes. Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Unless the job you want is with the postal service and you currently work a desk job with a private company. Only do that on Friday, then you can pass for an overly enthusiastic person who showed up to work dressed for Halloween.

Until next time!

So, I skipped a day or thirty. Welcome back? I have been busy on the parade of jobs, which I think has finally come to an end. Whew! Most people that don't know me think I'm crazy, but the ones that do know me.......well, they KNOW I'm crazy! What's life without a little crazy flava flave?

The good news is that online shopping has commenced once more. I just bought a pair of running shoes for half the price I paid for the exact same pair I bought earlier this year. They were the lucky shoes I ran with in the April half. When I get them I predict that I'll wear them in hopes that karma remembers that I'm a good person and the shoes are lucky, in which case the fact that I've trained slim to none for the upcoming half becomes a moot point. (I think the most likely outcome of this little situation I describe will be flailing and hobbling about across a finish line in Dallas. But that remains to be seen. Luckily. (This brings me to a point: If you flail and hobble and no one sees you, it's like you neither flailed nor hobbled. Just like the tree falling in the woods that no one hears which makes no noise. Science....eerrr wait. Science disproves that one. Science, you do not give me hope for the upcoming hobble/flail situation...))

Well, I'm off to sell things online. This is a new one I haven't tried before. I need some income to fund the online shopping endeavor. Also? All the app buying. Including the "Damn it. My mom is on Facebook" filter. Thank you, SNL, for being spot on sometimes.

Until next time!

PS - Jokes aside, I'm pretty thankful for all the people in my life who are aware of my craziness and the parade of jobs and have gone through it with me. It's amazing how a crappy situation can reveal love and support of people in my life. I won't take any of them for granted and will be thanking God on a daily basis for each and every one of them!! Also, I will thank him for
