I had a busy day today. I managed to do a lot of housework and organizing before heading downtown. First, I went to an old co-worker’s birthday happy hour. Then, I went to the theater to pass on movie tickets I had won. After that, I went to my union meeting and then finally, my wine tasting. Despite being effectively unemployed, I do always seem to be busy.
I rushed in late to my union meeting. It was being held at a high-end hotel and I was wondering how they could justify the expense for that. I saw several people who I knew but the meeting had already started so I couldn’t go talk to them.
The union staff and board were going over our new contract and then opening the floor to Q and A. I was pretty satisfied with what they had gotten us this contract, which included a raise in our rates. I had to rush off to the next event in my agenda.
Wine Festival Tasting
Tonight was my free wine tasting night! I was quite excited about it. I was going to meet up with friends there and I would get a ride home with them. I got there before them so I proceeded with my tasting.
It was a lot of fun. I didn’t drink a lot, just enough. I probably ate more than I drank. This is definitely one of the best volunteer perks that I get. I’m already looking forward to next year’s festival!
Final Post for this Blog
I’ve decided to stop posting to this blog. I think that one thousand days is a milestone enough and one that I never thought that I’d reach. There were a few times along the way that I thought that I’d found my dream full-time career but it just didn’t come to fruition. The search continues.
As I look back at these past one thousand days, I realize that I am posting more on my physical activities, like marathons, trail runs, yoga, triathlon training, etc rather than my job/career search. Although these activities have kept me sane over the period and will continue to be a big part of my life, I know that I need to shift my way of thinking.
Who knows? Maybe I will start up a new blog, one with me detailing my new career. But for now, this is the end. Thanks for reading!
