In which we come back from hiatus

Goooooood morning internets!

Long time no post, no?

I know, I know - I'm sure you've all been on the edge of your seats these past two months, wondering where the updates were. "WHERE COULD SHE BEEEEEEEEEEEE?" you've screeched to yourselves, hunched over your laptops, tears streaming down your faces.

What's that? Oh - you, ah, didn't really notice? Oh. Erm...well...that's cool, too.

The truth is, I have sort of scored myself a job, of sorts. A "freelance" job at a news organization that I used to work for a long time ago. I am a "freelancer." I "freelance."

The bad news is, I don't have things like "health insurance" or "guaranteed hours" or the "ability to expense a cab when I have to be at work at 4 am and there is no public transportation available at that time because this is DC and everything shuts down at midnight with the exception of the bus system which I would prefer not to be taking at 4 a.m. by myself and I'm sorry if that makes me a pretentious white person but let's face it people get murdered on the bus here in the wee hours" and other such useful, important things that usually come with jobs.

The good news is, I HAVE SOMETHING THAT RESEMBLES AN ACTUAL JOB. And I have been getting enough work that it's completely cut all blogging time out of my life for the past two months. Gah!

Now, here is the problem - because of this crazy "working" thing I've been doing, I haven't had any job interviews in the last two months - terrible or otherwise. No job interviews! NONE! WHAT to blog about?!

Well, I don't know. But I'm sure I'll come up with something terrible-interview-related. SURELY I'll have another terrible interview soon. And I'm pretty sure I've had a few that have been so terrible, I completely blocked them from memory, in which case...I will face the pain in order to hilariously write about them.

Anyway - STAY TUNED.
