the one where i summon the higher powers for a job.

we won't get into any religious viewpoints on my blog, i'm sure mine are much different than most.

this whole "being unemployed" thing is not working for me or my ego anymore. i have been busy with school and clinicals for the past ten weeks so it hasn't seemed that bad, but if you have been a reader for a while, you may remember THIS. i have not had a full time job since. le sigh. eff you economy, eff you.

don't get me wrong, if it were in the cards [so to speak] for me to be able to be a part time SAHM, i totally would, but i need to "work hard for the money... so hard for it honey". to keep up with our lifestyle and to keep up with my sanity.

with my final exam for Phlebotomy this week, thursday [april fools day, who does that?!?] i am feeling the pressure even more to get a job in the field i have decided to pursue. maybe pressure was the wrong word. no one is pressuring me, especially cj, but i have been applying to various sites with no avail. everytime my phone rings, i am hoping it is a number i don't recognize with a friendly voice on the other line saying, "what time would you like to set up an interview?". or even better "your resume format is outstanding, you must be a spectacular person, you've got the job!".

i live in the land of healthcare, or so i hear. i'm just waiting for that call to get my foot in the door.

be thinking about me on thursday morning, and until i make an obnoxious blog post about my new job. i will love you forever.



  1. Good luck job hunting! What ever became of the complaint to the EOEC? This is just a reminder to myself never to get too comfortable with anyone at work.

  2. I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for but this is a great website full of job listings in the healthcare field.

  3. Good luck, Crystal! When we moved to Florida, I was seriously so depressed for the 2 months it took me to find a job... I'll keep you in my thoughts!

  4. good luck! what program are you finishing up?

  5. Liz - its phlebotomy. Blood and needles.

  6. Best of luck! Check out my latest blog entry if you want to know more about what I'm doing part time to be able to stay home most of the time with my daughter. Hubby's a teacher and unfortunately they don't pay teacher's what they're worth...especially now. Not exactly your field, but it could be something to get you by. Either way, I hope you find something soon!

  7. Wait that's today! Good luck! Sorry... I'm a little behind on blogs lately.
