What now?

A month ago, I went to work, because I had a job. Before the day was out, I didn't have a job. It happened just that fast.

And now a month has literally flown by. I've been writing cover letters and filling out applications like it's going out of style. I know I'm not alone in this situation, and I take comfort in the fact that people can honestly say they know how I feel. I would feel even better if we all were going out to our celebratory "WE FOUND JOBS" dinner.

Granted, it's easy to get cabin fever, or to spend the day watching tween shows on Disney Channel, or to sleep in much too late, or do similar less than worthwhile things.

Some days are harder than others.

Some days, I just ask, "What now?"

So, I decided I need a creative outlet. My mother tells me that I'm a passionate person. I truly love all sorts of different things: movies, treasures/trinkets (think anything damask), beautiful artwork, learning, food, the Gospel, people, etc. And until I find a livelihood that incorporates some or all of these things, I'm just going to use this blog. From now on, not only will I be posting EVERY DAY (and sometimes even twice!) I will be instituting themes for every day.

For example: Movie Mondays. I find that I post a lot of video on this blog. Movie trailers, TV clips, something viral that I saw on my Google Reader, etc. Now I will be posting these movies on Mondays.


I was catching up on one of my favorite blogs, Pop Candy, which led me to this article, which basically says that British people are funny, and here are ten British movies you ought to see.

One such movie is Son of Rambow, which is worth adding to your Netflix queue.

And there you have it. Movie Monday.

Oh Megan! Sorry you are going through this. Maybe this is novel time? You've mentioned wanting to write one, right?

Sorry about the job--but I am excited to read more of your blog posts! And I can't wait for Saturday . . . perfect way to take your mind off of any unpleasantness. And speaking of British shows--you need to check out the series MI-5 (Spooks is the British title). Netflix has the first 4 series on demand . . . but beware, it is addicting. Think Matthew McFaddon, and that yummy Colonel Brandon from the latest BBC Persuasion . . .

Waaaaaaaaaaait! Have you SEEN this movie? Because I so entirely want to, and have not. :( Is it amazing? Tell me more about its awesomeness until I feel obligated to go see it.

Please let me know when the SLC chapter of the Jobless Club meets next. I'll be back and ready to join later today.

Son of Rambow is the only movie I've ever seen in a theater by myself. Which is sad, because I had nobody to talk with about how fantastic it is. Until now. :-)

Oh, gosh, I do love Son of Rambow, and I'm excited that you'll be posting more (though, I do wish it were under different circumstances)!
