I give up! I give up "looking" for love, and I give up looking for my career. I damn well know the type of girl I want to share my life with, and I most definitely know what I want to do for a living. I've noticed, every love relationship I've ever had, I met the girl by complete accident -- either bumped into her at a book shop, or met her in a class of mine -- I at neither point intented to look for love, it just fell in my lap. As for my career, two things, a technical writer and a literary translator -- languages and the ability to pull a Dilbert-esque computer manual out of my hat are the only sets of skills I have to my name, and, there is nothing I love more than translating novels.. therefore, screw putting my name into dead end places, I've made my work publically available enough, things shall come to me -- the universe has a beautiful way of doing that. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I've tried hard core searching and applications, clearly it's not doing the trick or else I'd be Daddy Warbucks by now! Hah, oh the joys of being an overly educated intellectual.
