Sent out 3 resumes so far. One with General Dynamics as a Linux admin. Another as some kind of commercial software installer/developer working for a local big city. Another for some small company to upgrade a crappy veteran benefits web portal.
Yesterday: Mostly nothing. Wife had some errands so I briefly got stuck babysitting. On whim, decided to go and see the new Puss n Boots movie. Hadn't been to a theater in 10+ years. Kids never been. Movie was alright. But felt somewhat out of place. I mean, when did "dinner and a movie" turn into eating fried waffle crisp while at a movie in a la-z-boy recliner:
Plus side, the tickets were only $7 which is what I remember paying 10+ years ago. Minus side, spent $35 at the arcade after the movie and that made only about 15 minutes of games....
Basically just looked at porn for eight hours straight while wired up on redbull and pills. Once I finally got out of the chair, my whole body ached from lack of movement and sore all over. Just took a shower and went to bed. Scrubbed myself hard but still felt filthy.
Sent a resume out to a bank later last week. Saturday I borrowed a relative's tiller to till up my wife's garden. Worked pretty good. I couldn't help but wheel it out into a field to see what it would really handle in hard clay soil. Of course broke it in a few minutes. Spent Sunday taking the whole thing apart. Just youtube "tiller repair" and you'll see the "fun". There's apparently only been two different types of self driven tillers over the last 30 years or so and they are both prone to common problems. In my case, broke the chain that drives the wheels. It was a dinky bicycle looking chain. Way too small for this application. The entire thing has to come apart to fix. Got a new kart "racing" chain on the way. As for today, didn't do much
Yesterday: Had to run errands all day, which sucked. Got home and messed with the tiller some more. Tried to get it clean up but only found more issues. I think I'll just ignore most of them and get it back together with a few quick fixes and pretend it is "like new". Then started feeling sick and grouchy so went to bed early.
Today: Woke up at 2am and laid there for an hour before (very angrily) getting up. And now I'm sitting here planning my day because posting on some sh!t forums is more important. I'll probably cancel the interview for today. Not sure yet. Still need to watch some online docker classes I paid for so I can better learn how to properly host a crappy php forum and use as resume fodder.
Interview with the city position went alright. They are as clueless as to software engineering as I am so might be a good fit. Ran out of time, they scheduled more meeting time for tomorrow. Or they said they would, still haven't gotten an invite so might have gotten jilted.
