New Beginning

Starting again after not writing for a long time. As you can see, my attempt to revive it earlier this year did not last. I have been on the phones as a customer service representative for about 8 months now. Long enough to be worn down by whiny, belligerent customers and struggling to take calls faster. The company’s goal is 300-450 seconds (5 – 7.5 min) per call. I’m at around 800 on a good day. Today I also begin a really determined job/career search. I have been checking in with CareerBuilder and SouthSoundJobs all along, but not focusing on developing new ideas, networking and setting specific goals. Work is not getting any better and I am nearing the breaking point. I need fresh ideas for work and career inspirations. Perhaps what I really need is a husband with a good income and then I can just tutor part time or volunteer in some community programs and not worry about having to support myself independently. Well, I'm not holding my breath on that one.

I have a new favorite TV show, Heroes. The first two episodes are amazing and promise great things to come. I was so surprised by the ending of this week’s episode. There are a lot of questions and a lot of things to discover. I hope the show delivers.
