Job Hunting

I've made a pretty fierce effort at job hunting recently, barring the few days when my father was in town, and so far it has been utterly fruitless. And I think that may be for the best. Don't get me wrong, I'm in no position to claim that what I've been doing in my free time has been more useful then getting a job, I'm simply thinking about how the next few weeks are going to play out. In ten days I'm going to be gone for a week. Immediately following that a friend from out of town is going to be in town for five days. I'd love to spend the next tend days employed but "I'm going to need twelve days off soon" is a difficult conversation to have with a potential employer.

So for the next ten days I'm going to change around my focus. I'm going to dedicate these ten days to getting my affairs in order, and to making sure I'm spending every bit of free time well. The actual process of that is very complex if analyzed on a minute level, but as is so often the case my behavior trickles down from larger principles. In this case it's a return to one I've so often tried to implement, namely the idea of living without dead time. My experiment for next week is to live for that entire week without dead time.

Let us see if this can be done
