As soon as this video finished uploading to YouTube– it is taking so stinkin’ long!!– I will have finished with making Dallas Blogs. Woo hoo, man. Seriously.
I think it’s worth attempting to post, though. I mean- I cut stuff and did stuff and whatever. It’s like 3% more advanced than the first 18. Still nowhere near as advanced as the vids being posted by foul-mouthed 9 year olds who only seem to know how to post videos whose titles and tags lead you to believe you’re going to watch a clip from a show when actually it’s JUST A JOKE!! HAHAHA!!!1!111!!!! LOL ITS THI SDUDE AN HE SCREEMIN AND U HAD YER SPEEKERS UP !!!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Dallas Blog. Number 20. We out.
P.S. Jenny K.: There’s a special clip in it just for you. ;)
I’m working on my resume and so far it’s slow (boring) going.
I copied and pasted EVERYTHING from past versions and updates and notes and things into a new version. It’s a total mess. And so much of it is just— ugh. So poorly written. Some of it’s from right after high school. I had no idea what I was doing or saying and boy does it show.
So here I sit with stuff I’ve got to completely rewrite, mixed in with template suggestions from various web sites, and more superfluous data than I know what to do with as I’ve been copying and pasting from resumes used for everything from office jobs to teaching jobs to campus jobs… and it comes to two pages.
I don’t know how I want to format it yet. So many that I’ve looked at don’t read well visually, but at the same time I know that the viewing/reading methods that work best for me may not be how others will want to see what I’m including so I’m freakin’ out that I’m going to find an awesome, clean, easy to read format and will find out that no one uses it because HR types can’t stand it.
Regardless: Once I format it it’ll shorten up a little, but mostly I’ve now got to start cutting things. This shouldn’t be too hard since I literally have EVERY job I’ve ever had on there. Lookin’ at 14 total. Gonna shorten up real quick-like.
It’s describing the more recent/relevant positions using those God awful “action verbs” that’s really getting me antsy. I feel like using them is finding a way to maintain honesty while lying about what you’ve done. “Implemented redesign of human resources support program” should not be used as code for “When I was sent to buy a can of Folgers for the break room I decided to pick up Maxwell House instead because there was a stick on tattoo inside that I wanted for my kid.”
