Lots of knitting. Lots and lots of knitting. (If you’re on Ravelry, you can see my finished projects.) My hands ache from the knitting, particularly the left because I knit Continental. I think I may have to learn to knit English just to swap off on occasion. We’ve been going out to hear more live […]
Well, I owe you all an apology. This blog has been abandoned for four years, and a lot has happened in that time. Katie is married, about to finish college, and expecting her first child! I went back to work in 2013! I work from home, but I work full time doing technical support for Apple, Inc. as […]
Yes, yes—I promise this is the last post for now. Probably for the weekend, but at least for a few hours! I continue to hope to find some kind of work that I can do from home despite my uncooperative body. Of course, most listings for “work at home” and “telecommute” jobs are complete rip-offs. I […]
I read Women, Work and Autoimmune Disease by Rosalind Joffe and Joan Friedlander a few months back, but for some reason, my review on Amazon took a while to show up, and I didn’t think to keep a copy for myself. It seems to finally be there now, so I’ll put it here, too (slightly […]
I’m working on a new podcast episode. Really! And I’d like very much to hear from you. Are you working? Have you had to change anything about work since developing a chronic illness? Have any of you gone back to work after taking some time off? Is anybody willing to be interviewed? Thanks!
So this is the first part of what’s become my sorta-weekly update. I went to meet a new team leader for the same company I worked for last fall. I thought they’d outsourced everything to India by now. One of their big clients vetoed that, though, so they kept some significant percentage of the work […]
A professor at school just sent out a job lead that I’ll be happy to forward to you if you send me an email.
I just got an email from PsiCorp. I would have thought they wouldn’t need such a clumsy interface to communicate anything to me. I am certifiably insane. I’m applying for an internship job. No, really. And finally, SPSU’s financial aid department seems to be unable to not screw up something in my life for more than […]
sambear had one interview this morning, and is going to another now. Send “hire him!” energies pretty please! Current Mood: :-)optimistic
Well damn. This temporary part-time data entry thing has been hard on my body, but we needed the cash so I was trying to just push through. But now they’re asking me to do something unethical. You know those slips of paper you fill out in stores to enter drawings, that have a place for […]
