Lost and Desperate...



Am I too obsessed with Lost? That's a funny question. It's like asking if I'm okay with breathing? 

I posted my Lost Thoughts on youtube on Thursday the 22nd. Since then over 800 people have decided to watch my video. In the grand scheme of things, 800 views is not that big of a deal. But when you're someone used to getting around 150 views per video, it's a big deal.

Not to mention I've gotten about 25 extra subscribers since posting the video....woot. 1000 subscribers might equal youtube partner!

In the meantime, the job effort still seems like an uphill battle. I've sent out more applications in the past few months than I have in my life. Substituting (although seemingly available) has not panned out like I hoped it would. I am currently deciding how low I want to lower my job expectations. I'm still holding out for the jobs I applied for on USAJobs.gov but who knows? 

When it comes down to it, if I don't get any of the jobs I
 applied for recently by February 1st, it's desperation time. 
I know that there is a job out there for me. I know there is a job that has been set aside specifically for me that I will flourish in. The question is when. Time before the wedding is running out and I may have to settle for now and do what I've grown accustomed to doing. Wait.

I know that you don't know me but- I saw the video you posted on youtube and it was great!!!
(good idea to post it on DocArzt!)
I am also one of your new subscribers there & I hope you don't mind me following your blog! (if you do mind-let me know)
Good luck with the job hunting! You have lot's of talent so I'm sure something will turn up!
Have you thought about working at a radio station??? You should try to get a foot in the door there! Have them check you out on the youtube!

Mr James - was hoping you were down in LA for the jay and jack podcast event for Lost. We missed ya.
Congrats on the job and keep up the podcasting. Wasn't the Season Finale just fantastic?
