Monday Meme

I went to a workshop over the weekend, which was interesting.  The woman who emceed the event looked over my resume at the end and gave me a few tips.  She said that overall, it looked really good and that I only need a couple of slight modifications.  Hopefully those changes will help get me some internships!

The workshop lasted two days (Saturday and Sunday), so luckily it wasn't an extensive homework weekend, like last weekend was.  Now I have four more days to go until I finally get another day off.  I'm tired already, just thinking about it!

Too this from here.

1.  What format did you start listening to music on?

The radio!  Then I moved on to vinyl, then on to cassette tapes.  Then on to CDs, and now I mostly listen to the radio and my iPod.

2.  When was the last time you called in sick to work?  Were you actually sick?

I had to call in to my current job twice, but I wasn't sick either time.  The last time I actually did call in sick was at a different job, and I really was sick.  Had two days off, and really could have used a third.  

3.  Would you rather be poor and work at a job you love, or be rich and work at a job you hate?

I'd rather work at a job I love and be rich!  

But that wasn't the question...  I don't like my current job at all (mostly due to lazy coworkers who can't be bothered to do their jobs).  I don't get paid very much, but if I got rich from it, it would probably make things a little more tolerable.  My job isn't rocket science though - pretty much anyone could do it.  (Well, except for my current coworkers, apparently!  lol)  

However, I think I'd rather work a job I love and be poor.  I've worked several places where I absolutely hated it.  I'd wake up every morning with a pit in my stomach, trying to convince myself that, "Maybe today won't be so bad!"  And then I'd go to bed at night, dreading having to get up the next morning and do it all over again.  I'm not sure the money is always worth it.  Having money goes a long way, but it isn't everything!  

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
This picture is labeled Camden Town.  I have no idea what it is.  Do you?  Is it an apartment building, or a train?  Because it kind of looks like it could be either one.

We don't have much time for music but we sure would go for a job we love and never for one we hate just for the money. I think that might be Camden Lock which is a canal that goes through a part of London. They just drained it for maintenance. Hope you are well.
Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Hey Wylde One!
Wow, good news about a resume update! Mom says that's the key to an interview. Good luck snagging an internship! That pix has me scratching my head, but it almost looks like water in the front, so maybe it's a shipping dock. Hmmmm.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Pol Comm

Yes I agree, rich and love your job! Hmmm, I am remarkably ignorant when it comes to stuff from London, I hardly ever go there.

Hello Friend
Good week

Haha, as soon as I saw the last picture I thought "Camden Town". They are houses built to overhang the old canal that runs through the place. They are within walking distance of my home! They have won various architectural prizes but personally I'm not that crazy on them. They always seem dank and dark and damp! You can see the green stains on the concrete below, that's because they never get any sun. Well, hope that answers your question! Good luck on the internships.
It's never good to hate what you do, you are wishing away your one and only life.
