Headache inducing

Reading job ads and trying to figure out how to rewrite my resume for a specific job.

With all this job stuff I don't get to do the really fun things like go over to the MIT site and check out their Open Courseware. There are some really fun math courses there.

My Dirty Little Secret

I love to do things like needlepoint and crochet. The needlepoint is on hold until I can get an eye exam and have my glasses changed, but I've been doing a lot of crochet. Finished one sweater and have a second one almost complete. It's killing me right now to see all this really gorgeous yarn that I can't buy (another reason besides keeping a roof over my head for having a job).

My sister and a very good friend (she sent me the coolest row counter!) just started blogs about their knitting and needlework adventures. So I've added links to them. Go encourage them to write more. *grin*

I suppose I have to end the pity party somethime

But probably not quite yet. Although I had a 3 month temp job, it's been 9 months and I still haven't found a permanent job. Off hand, I'd say that I'm totally unemployable except in low paying, unskilled jobs.

So I need to work. Any good ideas?

For what it's worth, when the temp agency called to say the assignment was ending the guy kept on saying how happy the client had been and what an excellent job I'd done. But really how hard is it to accurately query databases and enter the information into another database?
