Well in the wake of being trapped inside, its actually given me time to just sit and relax. The past week has seen the invasion of my HP netbook at the hands of a Facebook-based virus brought on during a writing section at the Chaska Dunn Bros. Its ironic because that event was followed up by the even worse news that my car is now undriveable thanks to the meddling of some mechanics I trusted to look my car over before actually doing anything drastic. These two events, along with 6 days of working straight in poor weather have left me desiring something more. My desire to write and my continually rising stack of projects has me wishing that I had a better job that would facilitate my need/desire to get creative. The other day I noticed a job opening in the editorial department at IGN Entertainment, which is by far one of my top choices for a working position! I applied and hope that whoever does take the time to check out my writing samples (on this and my tumblr blog no less!) looks into my writing with an open mind for what I can bring to their company. Regardless of what the outcome will be, its extremely motivating that I made the effort to do such a thing (apply for a desired posting), in a week that has been otherwise been filled with disappointment.
So needless to say, as I write on my girlfriends macbook in downtown Victoria during a blizzard, I would definitely appreciate more positivity. That and an extra 130.00 to fix the virus issue on my stupid netbook.
