I’m sharing this to hopefully get your feedback on a few things. Who reading this appreciates fruit cake? AND, What’s your favorite candy bar? It’s hard to believe I’m as strange as I’ve been made to feel and I’m looking for support from a few food allies. I’ll be pretty disappointed to find my blog family feels the same about unique palate as my Facebook family. Read further for the backstory.
One of my Facebook connects periodically posts surveys to gauge who likes this or that. It all started years ago when he was totally amazed there are people like myself who like — dear I say love — fruit cake. Although I find it fine to enjoy a little fruit cake now and again, evidently admitting so on the socials was not my brightest idea lol. Don’t think I’ll ever live that down but I’ll still enjoy my fruit cake.
One of his more recent surveys was about different candy bars. He didn’t leave it open ended so I’m sure he was seeking a target audience of people who enjoy a certain treat. Well, once again I was in the minority being a big fan of Baby Ruth. Yep, that’s one of my favorites, along with Butterfingers, which seemed acceptable. Go figure!
Next time I’m keeping my Grade A food choices to myself because [in the words of Tabitha Brown] that’s my business! Wonder what it says about me that I grew up actually requesting liver for dinner.
Today I worked on another stressful task, unsure how I’d feel in the end but knowing I had to get through it. I’m not going to give much of my personal opinion on the matter except to say resume writing is exhausting! What Joe Schmoe made this a regular thing?!?! I’ve written obituaries — educating myself and curating stories to share the meaning to the 75+ years of someone else’s life — in less time than it takes me to summarize my own relatively short career. This is yet another thing I make harder on myself by further revising the document after declaring I’m done, always thinking of a better word or alternate way of expressing the same thing, and striving for perfection that’s never been defined. At least I’m no longer using pencil and paper, which was my preference for a long time. So many writing skills have deteriorated and been replaced with ever-evolving technology and I have to admit, the computer is a lifesaver.
I felt completely overwhelmed in the beginning and I won’t be stress-free until I gain employment but at this moment, I’m somewhat relieved…and still actively seeking!
