Things I Do:

These days, I do many things that aren't necessarily a blog post in and of themselves. So, I'm going to write a list. I like lists.

I like lists a lot.


1. Look at apartments available on
2. Dream of kitchen appliances, dish towels, and living room furniture
3. Make lists of the things I have Left To Do In College. Cross things off of said list.
4. Count down to graduation (4 weeks!)
5. Write real cover letters and resumes.
6. Write fake cover letters.
7. Look at apartments available on
8. Complete school work. Consider important topics very carefully.
9. Marvel that it takes the same amount of time to write a 5 page paper as a 10 page paper. Consider why this is.
10. Watch many episodes of Bones. In a row.
11. Discuss apartments on with friends. Consider each other's plans for next year. Panic a little.
12. Eat dessert regularly.
13. Create budgets for next year.
14. Register with Every Single Nanny Agency I can think of.
15. Look at apartments on

How Cover Letters Should Be

Dear Potential Employer,

We all know you're just going to skim this, and go right to the resume, but I just want to throw out there-- I would rock at this job. I am GOOD at working with children. I think they're funny; they think I'm funny. Really, it's a match made in heaven!

Oh, and did I mention how much I like CRAFTS? Glue! Glitter! Paint! Crayons! Clay! Bring it on-- I am so ready.

Imagination! I LOVE imagination!

And, yeah, I can mediate disputes and teach cooperation and sharing and all that jazz. I'm warm and loving, absolutely, but I have certain expectations for behaviour, and I expect those to be obeyed.

I cook. I bake. I love virtually all animals. I am not afraid of dirt, snot, etc.

I am your GIRL, employer! Think how lucky you would be to have me!

Awaiting my job offer,
