To whom it may concern,

The above phrase is dominating my life right now. I apologize to all my loyal blog readers - all fourish of them - for Reve Rouge's MIA-ness lately. Instead of writing blog posts, I have been writing cover letters. I feel like I have written a gazillion of them.

My life is consumed by working or trying to find work right now. I take every snippit of freelancing I can get. And when I am not doing that, I am job hunting in every way I know how: stalking online job boards, writing those cover letters, reformatting my resume, sending handwritten thank you cards, calling my friend's mom's friend's friend who said he might be looking for someone, rewriting cover letters because the first drafts were horrible, donning my lucky green interview shirt every once in awhile, following up, etc. etc. etc. etc. There is so much etc. I can never do enough. There is always more work to be done in my search to find work. If I don't do everything I can to get offered job X, someone else will. And that person will get it. I don't want that to happen.

So right now, I have seven events on my Google calendar this week that are labeled "job shiznit." And it's only Monday. I need to write two cover letters and research a company where I am being interviewed tomorrow. I have to go. Sorry blog and its readers. Maybe I will get a job soon and subsequently have more time to write.

I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for =) keep on

PS: I've never thought about having a lucky shirt before, I should consider it ^^

Ugh, that all sounds terribly familiar-- that's what my boyfriend and I were both doing (and he's still doing!) before I came to France. Problem is, lots of people want work and there's just... not that much work available. BAH!

Yeah, I know that it could take a long time to find a job. That's why I feel so much pressure to be incredibly hardcore about it. And the lucky shirt doesn't hurt either ;-)
