Resume Writing

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:39 am by a11en

Just for the record, Resume writing sucks. Somehow I have to sum up my usefulness in 2 pages? Put my best face forward, and hope they give me a shot at an interview! I know exactly where I want to work… now I just need to convince them I’m the man for the job. [Although, I will take offers from other companies as well…]

I have a new post I just must write… I found an interesting Mathematician recently in wikipedia, and I just have to share his amazing comments. They’re absolutely directly applicable to GTD and productivity. I can’t wait to share them with you, but I have to get this other stuff done ASAP.

Let’s hope I can get back to you guys this weekend. I’m excited by the find, and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Hopefully it will spur on your work.

Chat with you soon!

p.s.- posting has been slow because I’ve taken a part-time job at the university where I work. The job gives me all sorts of wonderful access to fab equipment (clean-room, PECVD, RIE, Mask Aligners, Ebeam, ALD)… it means I have much less time in my day, and much more to get done. It’s been a seriously pressing time. Enjoyable, but I’m starting to freak out about how much I need to get done. OmniFocus has saved my butt in my part-time-job. Everything goes into OmniFocus, and I tick off all the tasks as I get them accomplished. Extremely useful. Not perfect yet, but very useful. [Omni- Work on printing!!! It’s horrendous right now! I’ll have to put up a post about that as well.]

p.p.s.- we may also have a guest blogger sometime soon… if I can convince her to write a snippet… Michele, my GF, may write about her experience receiving a ProFlowers.com flower bouquet for valentine’s day (and what was good and what was not so very good…) We’ll see if I can convince her to try it out.

As always, here’s wishing you excellence in your work, the foresight to choose your next actions carefully, and success in all your intellectual endeavors!

Jillian of Project Runway

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:26 pm by a11en

Quick post- Who doesn’t love Project Runway?  One of the designers has been growing on me steadily.  She has girl-next door looks, with something added that makes her more and more intriguing the more you watch her.  There’s only one problem- I wish she’d get a bit more girly excited.  I keep wishing for a bit more emotion out of Jillian, who often has a very monotone voice while describing her visions.  [Is it her vision?  Why so monotone?]  Although, we do see her frustrated side often.  So, perhaps it’s merely that she’s not really that happy.  Not sure.  But, the last episode we got to see a bit of that girly glee… she ran back off the catwalk swinging her dress.  Very very cute.  Add to that the peak of a black garter underneath that fantastic little dress she was wearing, and vavavoom!!  🙂  Very very *nice*.

Now, I just need to find a screen-capture to share with you all…

oh, ps- is it just me, or is it a darned shame that all these gorgeous models get naked in front of all these guys who so obviously couldn’t give a rat’s ass about naked women?  🙂  [Christian needs to tone down the volume knob just a bit.  Step it down from “11” to say, 5 or so.  His volume knob definitely goes up to 11.]

Back to our regularly unscheduled program…
