29 + 4 update

ever since i decided to stop moping, things have really taken a turn for the better.

and in some random hope that the power of positive thinking actually might work, i just wanted to let the interwebs know that i have asked for something that i want as per goal #9.

i found a job i want.  i found a job that could potentially meld my education and international experience in development with my nearly two years' worth of private sector corporate social responsibility knowledge!  i found a job i want in new york city.

so i applied.

and if you are so compelled, join me in sending some positive energy in the direction of the un headquarters in nyc in hopes that they overlook my lack of the requisite 8 years of progressively responsible experience and interview me based on my ballsy cover letter and unique skill set!

I love a ballsy cover letter! Next time I have to write one, I'll send it to you to add a bit of ballsy-ness :)
Good luck!

i am not sure if i have ever told you this, k, but i really love editing cover letters and resumes so send them my way whenever!

Yay! Go you! That was one of my dreams as a teenager, wanting to work at the U.N. Sending all the positive energy I can muster!

update (again)!

i contacted a friend who used to work in the same office and he said he'd be glad to help me out.

so now i guess i ask for how i want him to help me?? not sure exactly my next steps.
