Mad Men: My Non-Review

For about a month now, I’ve been trying to catch up on AMC’s Mad Men which is currently in it’s fifth season.  Technically, I can’t call it ‘catching up” since I had not seen an episode of Mad Men before this marathon.

I started watching Mad Men as a cure for my boredom.  I thought I’d watch an episode here and there, no big deal.  But this so called “cure” has turned into an obsession, or a race to the finish, as I like to call it.

So why am I powering through this show so quickly?  Is it because I love Mad Men?  Did the critics get it right this time?  I don’t know.  I can’t seem to put my finger on it.  I love how the show fills me with nostalgia of a time I never knew.  Other than that, I am not sure what draws me in.  It could just be that Draper charm that does it.

So what’s my non-review?  Love the style.  ❤

I’ll try to get a more thorough review after I am entirely caught up.

I HATE Cliffhangers!

For a while now, my blogs have been lacking something…WORDS!  I’ve mostly been posting silly pictures that make me smile.  So what have I been up to lately?

Applying for jobs!  (And some Etsy work, of course!)

I’m having such a difficult time obtaining employment.  I know that I have the education needed to get a great job, but my experience is lacking a little.  Here comes the question that I ask myself on a daily basis (more than once a day, usually):

How can I get more experience if no one will get me a job?

I actually felt pretty positive about the last interview process that I went through.  I guess you can say that I’m used to rejection by now, but there is something that I will never get used to.  Is it that difficult to send a generic letter to those who interviewed informing them that they didn’t get the job?  I gave you about 45 minutes of one day for a phone interview, and I gave you another hour of another day to go to the in-person interview.  Did I mention that I had to drive an hour each way to actually get to that place?

Before I get into a long(er) rant, I will stop here.  (I won’t begin to tell you about my emails that weren’t answered.)  This is for all you employers out there!  Please be respectful and update those who traveled to your office to be interviewed.  That will be greatly appreciated because I HATE cliffhangers!
