(*) Boys Photos

Here's those photos of my three boys, taken in July and August around town here. The first batch was at a local temporary Ice Skating rink, and the second lot were at the Motor Racing Museum.

I've received a major MAJOR disappointing personal blow this morning... I've been working alongside a professional job-placement marketing person (trying to help me get some full-time employment atm), who basically told me that because I didn't finish my 2-year Uni course a few years ago, those two years should be deleted from my resume. Yes, two whole years of my life just deleted, erased, like they never happened. I went thru an emotional and psychological hell thru those two years, trying to get my emotions around the Uni work, but I just didn't have the emotional strength at the time to complete it all. It really stung deeply for someone to be that blunt about apparently two wasted years out of my life. Fuck it.

I was gonna post a simple thing yesterday, in memory of the whole 9-11 thing... but upon reflection of my own memories of where I was when I first heard about it, I got very emotional in myself, recollecting my own emotional and physical state at that time, despite the whole 9-11 thing. In the end, for the sake of my own sanity, I decided against posting something about it. I'm sure no-one wants to read a whole downer of how pitiful life was for me back then, huh? heh heh.

As it is...

I'd also like to publicly sincerely thank both Caroline and Broomhilda for posting comments on my blog here. I don't post a lot lately because I mainly feel as though sometimes I may go to a fair amount of effort to make some good posts, but nobody ever visits or reads them. So, thank you very much for your simple encouragement, ladies. I mean that most sincerely.

Selection for today...

  1. Why are those two years at Uni not worth mentioning? I don't understand that. If you don't add them onto your resume then you have a two year gap. Or does he think that the fact you didn't finish looks bad in some way?

  2. "The fact you didn't finish looks bad in some way" - ya, that one. I appreciate what she was trying to do. She is trying to 'sell me' [as such] to prospective employers. Employers only wanna see completed studies, not just attempts. Ya, it sucks [I still feel liose two years were just now a total loss...!], but I *do* appreciate where she's coming from.

  3. The boys are looking great!

    When i was looking for work, i thought that my resume really looked bad with just fast food, movies, gas station and hotel housekeeping on my list. What it really boils down to is if "someone" is willing to give you a chance. Alot of prayers for the hospital job came into play on my part. I Thank God everyday for the chance.

    You don't have to thank me for commenting. I enjoy your blog and i know that we all sometimes just don't have anything to say or little time to put one together.
    Take Care Mal...

  4. Hmm, actually I have TRIED to comment onyour blog, but call me stupid or something but I can't find a wya to comment, just stumbled upon this comment thing, hence my rave...heheh. I love your blog, and it is disheartening to put so much work into something and no bastard visits or comments. I often pop a heap of family pics onmy blog, and not one comment. It's like there's an elephant in the room, it's weird, but there ya go. *deep breath. I sometimes feel like saying "I don't have to do this you know, I have a life too!" as it takes time to take the pics, download them, upload them etc, but what the hell...just do it for yourself. If only YOU and your boys read it, then that's worthwhile, right?
