Oh, wow... I've finally tucked into finishing my 'cake' resume' to send out to NOLA bakeries - as I'm finally ready to push 'print' for a hard copy to review... And the online program I am using goes kaplooie!??!? Toes up! It now looks like the inside and the outside are the same.exact.panels?!?! (it's a brochure format) And now...I cannot even get it to come up to edit and reinsert the photos I carefully selected and sized, let alone the text. I'm ILL! Positively and thoroughly ILL. I believe my only recourse is to utterly recreate the beast. ARRRGGHH! That being said - you may ask "why so stressed about this?" Well - sisters, brothers, whomever still remembers that this blog exists (not faulting you, I almost forgot about it myself) - it is because the resumes going for more office-type jobs have resulted in ZIP, NADA, ZILCH...and of all of the ones I've sent out...there has been one, count 'em ONE (1) response. And though it was 'negative' at the very least it was a response. For sh*ts and giggles, I responded to her and thanked her and just in case she may know someone (as people always do) at one of the NOLA bakeries/cakeries...included the link to my flickr page of cakes (specifically the Hubig's cake as it is immediately recognizable and most folks that I know of that have seen it LOVE it! :) Well - you may wonder what the heck is the deal w/the lackluster posting... I've been working my butt off at the job, and well - I did forget about it. I'll have to go look at my last post to catch up on what I posted last time I remembered, and pick up from there. Thanks for remembering, hang with me - I'll start documenting the real ROAD to NOLA. Even as I build the damned thing myself...career-wise. :) Be good, be safe, W.
