State of the Dragon: No Clever Titles  
I'm as settled in at thoughtsdriftby's place as I'm going to get, I think. The closet is repaired, most of my clothes are put away, I've got mail set up on the laptop and my Job Hunting File Folder in Dropbox.

I haven't quite had the burst of Job Hunting Energy that I realize I was magically expecting, nor have I gained the Key Insight Into What I've Been Doing Wrong All This Time, but I'm Working On It. I'm going to try to pick up an AutoCAD class at the local community college, which should make my skill set more attractive to a wider range of employers. They also have a program for a Land Surveyor's certificate that I should look into; there's a good chance of a lot of overlap between that and my ESSP coursework, so I might be able to get certified with just a couple of classes.

Emotionally, everyone seems to think I'm doing remarkably well; I'm not happy by any stretch of the imagination, but I've moved past miserable, for the most part. This hasn't broken me.

It still doesn't feel quite real sometimes, though.

I feel: blahblah

Good luck, man. Have you looked at non-profit job boards and so on? They're often hiring office staff of various kinds.

I don't know where to look.

Just sent you a note via webmaster address.

Also, I know just what you mean about it not feeling real. I still catch myself fleetingly thinking I'm just here on vacation.

er, okay, a different hopefully working email address.
