Finding Work

Note: This is cross posted with this post. The crossed listed post is long gone.

For most of the year I’ve been putting in applications to a lot of companies with no luck. I’ve gotten an interview with one company but wasn’t offered a position that I had an interview with.

With the amount of time passing by I don’t know if I would be able to get a job. I know I could go to school and further what ever knowledge that I have, but at this point its just going to keep my busy and there’s a possibility of not being able to get a job after getting a degree of some kind.

It seems like that I have a constant run of bad luck over the last 6 years or so. I’ve been a caregiver for the 10 or so years – which had been a full time job (at least 50+ hours) in which I wasn’t paid for. I was caregiver for a relative with a some what limited income during this time. Not being paid to be a caregiver which is “screwing” me over in a few ways. The obviously way is preventing me from me getting hired on at company in Oregon.

All I want is to find work someplace and save some money to live on. Granted the way the job market is happens to be an “employers market.”

Seems like that I’m looking in all of the wrong places or answering those “assessment” the wrong way on online applications.

I even put in for McDonald’s and I don’t know if I’m going to hear from them. If I don’t, I just wonder what’s wrong on how I’m approaching on filling out applications or whatever related to filling out applications. Don’t know if that made any sense but whatever.

Anyways, all I want to do is to work and go to school …. is that to much to ask. Seems that no matter on what I try to improve my life seems all I get are road blocks of some fashion. It’s like that I shouldn’t have left Alaska in the first place, even though I got really tired of the cold, snow and the long nights.

a traveling post

Intro

This post is about traveling (obviously). From Alaska through Canada to Oregon and other places I would like visit ….. soon.

Now on with the post….

Well just about a year …. since I moved from Alaska to Oregon. Started on Oct 15 2010 towards Canada and on Oct 16 2010 entered Canada. By this time last year it snowed in Alaska and in Yukon Territories (plus other parts of Canada too at this time last year). When we – my brother and I entered into Yukon Territories lost an hour of the day because the time  difference between Alaska Time and Pacific time (which includes British Columbia and Yukon Territories) – anyways – side from the darkness of the long nights it was a very good road trip. There were a lot of scenery that I wanted to take pictures of – obviously I didn’t take any cause I didn’t have a good dslr camera with me.

Even though I could have stayed in Alaska and I’m thinking that I’m reconsidering the move and heading backup – haven’t decided yet. I’m going to see how things go at a University here in Oregon first – then I would go from there. Also it would depend on (still) trying to find  some kind of job here in Oregon.

Anyway, at some point I’m going to take a longer road trip into Canada where the trip wouldn’t be rushed like the road trip that I took last year (October 2010). This time I would have a good dslr camera with me along with an extra lens or two and couple additional memory cards. Obviously I would need to plan things out well ahead of time. I have a general idea where I want to go and visit to.

Though I would be taking a road trip here in the U.S. at some point to – beyond Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington State. I’m still figuring out where I want to visit to. I thought of going to the Southwest U.S. beyond that I don’t know where I’d go on a road trip to.

Though the places I like to visit are Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania. Going to these places are some ways off. Theses are  four place’s I was going to travel with my mother – obviously that’s not going to happen now. That’s another post for another time and place.

Aside from these places I want to visit to – I would like to visit Chicago, New York City, New Orléans, the Kansas for some reason. Maybe a few other places in the Midwest, along with  places in western Europe, New Zealand, and Australia.

Another place that I wanted visit with my mother is to New Zealand. For some reason I can’t remember she wanted to go there  though in part because it’s a scenic place to visit.

latter….

P.S. I’m going to post picture’s when I will take them as I go on a trip to places that I’ve mentioned above.  The pictures that I took last October won’t be posted cause I don’t have that many and what I do have been taken on my blackberry and which won’t be posted cause of the quality.
