Australian Open starts in 5 hours!!

I had no idea how much work goes into writing the perfect resume. I think I'm on my fourth or fifth draft. Thank God I have Stephanie and Anna to help me out because I would be lost. We have made real progress and I think we might have got it into good enough shape that I can send it out. I was hoping to have it ready by Tuesday so I can fax a copy of my resume and cover letter to Travelzoo.com's office in Chicago. For those who do not know the wonder that is travelzoo.com, check out there site. If you want to find the best deals on airfare and hotels, this is the place to look. One of my hobbies is too look up deals for travel on the internet. I like to sit at my computer and dream of where I would go if I could go anywhere. So it goes without saying, I would LOVE to work for travelzoo. I realize that I'm probably a long shot for the position and that I would be lucky to get an interview but you never know until you apply. What is that line in Win a date with Tad Hamilton? "Your chances improve when you fill out an application. So Tuesday is the day. I'm going to fax my resume and they are going to see what asset I will be and hire me right on the spot!

In the meantime, tomorrow I am going to Davenport to talk to Mr. Kennedy but what he has available at his station. I'm not sure what to expect. He may have something and he may not. It will probably be on of those, "well it was nice to finally meet you. I'll keep you in mind if something opens up" type of deals. That's fine. At least it will be something. If I do get a job there, even if it for a couple of months, that experience will go a long way to reaching my ultimate career goal of being a sports radio producer.

It's kind of funny. Two weeks ago, I felt like I was running out of options and now I feel like I have so many opportunities. Maybe I am just fooling myself but I don't care. I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time. I'm doing something. I am finally make steps to do something that I really want to do. One of my heroes is my best friend Lisa. She left. When she said she was going to go to school out of the state, she actually did. Now she is living in Los Angelos with a great job and doing what she wants to do. I wish I was as brave as her when I was deciding where to go to college. And now my sister is in Wales, doing what she loves. If they both can do it, then why can't I. I'm only moving three and half hours away not half-way across the country or on the other side of the Atlantic. I can do this and I will do this. Again, if anyone needs a couch to sleep on, I am going to have the most comfortable couch ever! :D
