they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

recession thoughts.

when the economy was better, i found myself wishing i had taken spanish in high school instead of french. being fluent in french doesn't exactly earn one extra money or an extra glance from employers who need to cater to a growing part of america's population.

now that i'm full-on into the longest i've ever been unemployed, i find myself wishing i would have been a waitress in high school instead of a lifeguard. because every server job in this city requires a "professional resume and experience." oh, i have a resume. but it doesn't have waiting tables on it.

    Maybe they just want experience of some sort on the resume, you know, to indicate that you can and have held a job before, regardless of the kind of environment it was in?

    It can't hurt to try, is what I think, anyway. No matter what serving job I was in, it started with a week or two of training. You're a smart cookie...if a restaurant manager can't figure out that you'd be able to wait on their tables once trained, then you don't wanna work for that manager!
