Oh Hey!

When was the last time I blogged about anything of importance?  Seems like I've posted some random crap over the last couple of weeks just to have a presence in the blogosphere!

Continuing with that today....
I need to make a resume.  I don't have one.  I haven't had to apply for a 'real' job ever.  My current job was a very informal interview; my aunt hired me over a lunch at Panera.  I'm in my 7th year here and I've learned so much that I can add to a resume.  My jobs for the 4 years before that were at shoe stores, selling shoes.  Before that, I did home health care for elderly people and before that I worked at a Target store, first as a cashier, then moved to the service desk (returns, how fun!) and then I moved into the cash office, which I loved!  The Target cash office is basically taking all the tills from the registers and counting the money to make sure it matches the reports as well as wrapping bills and wrapping coins to deposit all the money!  OMG, I LOVED that job!
Anyhow... I need to build a professional resume.  I have little idea where to start, I'm soliciting help!

I'm sick again - twice in one month.  My stress level is weakening my immune system - this is absolutely ridiculous.  I'm at home today, being sick.  It's a sore throat this time.

We've got some snow in the past week, but yesterday is was in the 40's and the next few days are going to be the same, so the snow will be gone soon.

Here are some photos of what I've/we've been up to in the last few weeks (I'm on android, so I don't have any fancy camera effects on my photos like those of you with instagram):
Homemade Onion Rings!  yum!

Homemade cupcakes!!!!

Monster Trucks!!!
Natalie (Pam's little girl) sleeping on me at a baby shower of a mutual friend.  I love this little girl!

AYCE Crab Legs at a new restaurant in Anoka

The piece I painted at a pottery shop with a group of about 17 other women for Diva Night

The Inside of the same bowl

Cheesecake from Manny's - the biggest piece of cheesecake  in the world, short of giving up the entire cheesecake (that's Steve's hand, for size comparison)

Orpheum Theater for The Lion King!!!

the chandelier at The Orpheum 

Other than that... I feel like we've been watching a lot of movies lately.  Yesterday I came home from work and watched Horrible Bosses and Bad Teacher I have Little Fockers lined up for today.  Steve and I watched Mission Impossible last night, and recently we've watched V for Vendetta, and a few others I'm having a hard time coming up with.
I'm might see what else is available at redbox when I go to return my movies today.

Lastly, one of my best friends, Pam - you may remember her from the shower I threw back in September and the adorable little baby Natalie that I'm pictured with above - well, her and her man, Nick, are getting married and it looks like they're about 95% sure it's going to be on June 30th!  I'm so happy for her!  She already has her dress and her shoes, so everything beyond that is just simple!

I am actually getting laid off today (it's a belssing more than anything) and have been trying to re-do my resume as well. I hate doing it and honestly I will google my current job and genre and get ideas from other employers to see how they list a job task. If it sounds like something I currently do, I add it! LOL Good Luck

Ugh, don't ask me for resume help. I'm taking a class called Career Development and it's all about resumes and cover letters and what not and I'm realizing that at 28 I have absolutely no worthwhile experience to land myself a "real" job. Kind of wondering why anyone would hire me. Blah.

I've been trying to keep my resume updated just in case! I plan to stay at my current job for awhile, but you never know (plus I've used it for a few freelance opportunities)

The Lion King? So jealous!

I'll email you my resume so you can see what a finished one looks like and you can ask me questions. I'd be happy to help.

I love that bowl!!

Being too busy and sick is very stressful and overwhelming. I am feeling like that right now, big time!! I would recommend printing several resumes you find online and taking ideas from them. Or use a resume building wizard/widget. I haven't updated my resume in a few years either, always good to do that.

Dana said...

Do you still need resume help? I have a copy of a resume (not mine) that was created with the help of the Workforce Center that assist people when they're laid off. If you need it, let me know. As for your bowl, it looks awesome!!
