Today was a "work day."
We woke up at 11:00am. <--Boo hoo, I know.
We ate our breakfast delivered by room service. <--I should just shut up already.
We motorbiked our dirty clothes to a lady who has a laundry service down the street because I officially have zero clean underwear left.
In fact, if you must know, I have taken a pair of undies and am now wearing them inside-out. <--classy.
It was either that or go commando. <--Even classier.
Normally, we do our laundry in the tub to save money.
But this particular hotel is the shower/toilet combo room, so no tub is accessible.
Hence the $2/load laundry bill we accrued.
That's fine by me though! Saves my biceps and back from aching.
Though, if we're being honest here, I should probably say that it saves Verner's biceps and back from aching because I usually end up dancing and prancing around as he's breaking his poor back washing our dirty clothes.
But before you think I'm a good-for-nothin' little princess,
just know that I am in charge of the "hang-up-to-dry" duties!
Yes, he washes, rinses, and rings, while I then have the task of finding strategic places to hang the clothes around the room for drying. <--i never claimed i was domestic.
After that, we grabbed some Pad Thai to go and hauled it back to our little 10x10 hotel room for work time.
I worked a bit online for Fasha (I've been doing some online marketing and "building his online presence" for his chiropractic office in San Diego - thanks for the work, Dad!).
I also attempted to write another recap post on our travel blog, but failed miserably because I somehow got caught up with the latest celebrity scandals. Darn you, WonderWall!
V Dizz did his work online (and is currently still doing so as I'm typing this, because he's a good little worker bee, unlike someone else in this room).
After my celeb fix, I decided to hunker down and do some job hunting.
I think I've decided that I want to find something that is only part-time to begin with.
Hell, if it were up to me, I wouldn't work at all, so part-time is just going to have to do for now, thankyouverymuch.
I figure after having a 6 month hiatus from the work environment, it would be in the best interest of everyone involved if I slowly eased myself back into the workplace.
We'll be spending the first month or so at V Dizzle's sister's home in Noe Valley - San Francisco.
THEN - if all goes as planned and Mishi here gets herself a job - we can sign a lease for our very first official apartment together!
But first. That job thing.
I've been looking at some random jobs - airline business, hotel business, admin business. I'm pretty open to it all as long as it does not involve me being cooped up in a little cubicle, staring at a computer screen all day with zero human interaction.
I will live in a box on the streets before that happens! <--Okay, clearly, that's a lie, but you get my point.
I also need to find a place that I can get to via public transportation, because we will not have a car, nor do we plan on buying one anytime soon.
I am hoping for a scooter purchase sometime in the near future though. <--Fingers crossed.
I've probably applied to about 6 jobs and I already want to gouge my eyes out.
I don't understand why they have you "upload your resume" and then they want you to still manually fill out your entire education and work history.
Seems like a waste of time, if you ask me.
I don't even have a working cell phone for these employers to call me, so I don't know why I'm jumping the gun so soon and applying!
In fact, I may or may not have just said to The Dizzle in the best whiny voice I could muster,
"I don't want to work! Why can't I just be a stay-at-home MOM!?!"
Please take note: we are nowhere near having children and the mere fact that I'm presenting the option of us having one just so I don't have to work should probably tell me that we're definitely not ready yet.
Aaanndd on that note...
I'm sure something will come along that will mesh well with me and be a good fit.
I'm just being my silly, impatient self right now and needed a few moments to vent about it.
Thank you for listening and good day.
