See...it's only been 2 days since my last post. Let's
hope I will truly keep up with this.
God, could you please find it within you to forgive the
Philadelphia media for their coverage of the upcoming
Eagles-Rams game this Sunday? They know not what
The Job Front: I just finished a week of taking tests
for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. To be honest,
I don't think I took them as seriously as I should
have. To get a job with the State would be a great
gig. But I simply didn't get enough rest in the
nights before these tests, and was restless in taking
them. If I do not get good scores on these tests, I
have no one to blame but myself.
I still hate looking for a job...but if you are looking
for a new job like me, here are a few quick links for
you to check out:
If any of you know of some other good national jobsites,
please send them my way via e-mail.
Oh, one other thing! If you click on a link within one of
the popup boxes, a new browser window will open, so
that you will not get trapped within the boxes.
Perspectives: Tired of reading the same old news all
the time? Ever wonder how other countries report on
OUR country? Check out the BBC and CBC.
In the CD player:
Living Colour--Pride (Greatest Hits)
Jamiroquai--A Funk Odyssey
Depeche Mode--"Freelove" single
Self-betterment: I've been striving to listen to lots of
different music lately, primarily through CBC Radio One
and Two. I consider myself a pretty knowledgeable
person when it comes to music, yet there is so much out
there that has never graced my ears. And I like
diversity...without it, music would just suck. I
mentioned Brand New Waves a few days ago, but if
you're looking for some good classical or traditional
music, check out Northern Lights, which is on M-F
late evenings on Radio One, and M-F early mornings on
Syc, what the hell is up with your Canadian
obsession, eh?: I don't know what it is about our
northern neighbors. They are much like us, yet unique.
Canada just looks like a beautiful place to visit. I
haven't been there yet, but Rho and I keep talking about
going up there soon...I hope within the next year or two.
And no offense to NPR here in the States, b/c I listen
to them on occasion. But I generally listen to music
online late at night, and CBC has some great programming
in the late evening/early morning. I like to learn about
new places and people.
And it's not limited to Canada. I have a bunch of
newspapers from across the US in my bookmarks.
Sometimes, I like to see what is going on in another
city. When the WTO protests occurred in Seattle a
few years back, I found the Seattle Times to be
a great reference. I also have a bunch of network
affiliates in my head for reference as well.
We live in a great age. An age in which I can
find out what is going on halfway across the
world in a mere matter of minutes. Something
that was impossible just 10 years ago. Nothing
substitutes being there, but at least I can get
a feel for things while typing at my table here
And now, I quit typing.
