The time has come that I find a job, it will happen soon perhaps, of course I said this 3 months previous also, and 3 months before that. I may have to start like begging soon by visiting businesses with cookies, I don't know. Looking for jobs reminds me a lot of searching for people to teach on the mission. First off, looking for jobs online is like housing. I can find jobs to submit my resume to every day online but nothing ever happens. Housing in Japan was the same way and in both cases I don't get to talk face to face with the people. In Japan, often we just talked through a speaker phone with a camera placed next to it. We called this speaker phone a "kekko" box. Kekko is the word that the Japanese would use to say that they are okay and don't want to listen. It was a very nice way to say we don't like you, yet we heard it a lot and I always enjoyed hearing new methods of rejection that didn't include the word kekko. If anything else at least it expanded my vocabulary. Streeting was always fun on the mission especially in Tokyo. Did not have a whole lot of luck streeting either except for here or there. At least we got to talk to people in the flesh and see some smiles. I have not done a lot of job streeting, maybe I will try it, I am just not sure where to start. Referrals were definitely the best resource for finding people to teach. If we had decent people to teach it was always through referrals. I have had some referrals in the job hunting process but I would like some more and I feel that ultimately that is how I will find a job but who knows. I just need a job that will give me experience to get me started. I have limited my options to gaining a job in my career field, I may need to look at that and tweak it a bit.
Wedding plans are on there way to a point. We have a wedding date and we have ideas of what we want to do but nothing is set in stone yet. I am thinking that since the wedding is close to Thanksgiving that we should have a Thanksgiving themed reception including replacing the traditional cake with a big fat turkey and holding the reception in a field. The servers will be dressed as Indians or pilgrims and Bailee can be dressed as Pocahontas or Sacajawea and I can be Christopher Columbus or John smith or something to the sort. Dessert will be cornbread and pumpkin pie with some warm fresh cow milk. So good!
|Hey, It is Bailee and I.|
Last week Bailee and I got to spend time with a former mission companion of mine and was able to see his wife and new baby and hang out with him at temple square and at Braza Grill. It was a good time, he was a great companion on the mission and he is inspiring to me. I always enjoy meeting up with old friends. Also,kj I must say that Brazilian food is good and even tastes better the second time, sometimes even the third.
