Tales of the Funemployed

I feel like after a week of deep posts I owe you a light hearted fun post.  In case you missed any of my posts this week and don’t feel like looking at the side hand bar…

The Care Free Miles -Why I don’t run for time, pace or mileage these days

How Social Media Skewed my Thoughts of Running Fast-Fast runners…fast runners everywhere

Just kidding but that would be great blogging technique right?  I will tell you what I’ve been up to just for good measure.

First I’ve spent a solid 10-20 hours (seems like a good estimate) applying for jobs in NJ and PA.  I am trying not to stress myself out but job searching is hard work and stressful.  Right now I am thinking, am I good enough?  Why would a company want to hire me?  Then I realize I spent four years in college working my butt off. Then I spent another year working and loving my job so yes I am a good candidate.  As alluring as full time blogging is I don’t have the grammar and spelling skills nor do I have the interest to full time blog forever.  (I mean full time blogging and running pays the bills right?  (Well, no not for me).

I’ve also been running…a lot.  One of my favorite loops around town goes straight to the boarder of Mexico.  I finally remembered to bring my camera and in more proper blogging technique I stopped and took some photos.  I would have live tweeted them while running, but I think I would have gotten hit by a car or attacked by a Rottweiler or pitbull.

This week is going to be a powerhouse running week (peak week 1) for me and will hopefully be around 90 miles.  Knock on wood I’ve been recovering well and doing what I need to be doing.  It also helps that my only jobs right now are to apply for jobs, eat, sleep and run.

As far as my nutrition front (lolz):

I tried quail for the first time this week too.  I always see these pesky birds while running but when they are cooked it’s like the chef just chopped off the heads and cook them up.  It’s a little intimidating to eat but it was really good.  It really just reminded me of chicken.

Since it’s not real life until I show you a picture of a dessert I’ve consumed…I ate this fried ice cream.  It was delicious as anything fried is..as I’m sure 95% of comments will be about how delicious fried ice cream is.

My only plans this weekend are to pack the house and prepare for leaving Texas next week.  I’ll probably post more concrete plans once I know of them but the Russian Roulette of my life is ever changing and once I post a blog topic…it will probably change.

Questions for you:

Have you ever tried Quail?

Have you been to Mexico?

What are your plans this weekend?
