Endless Resumes!

I mean, seriously, the quantity of resumes a person with a resume must maintain just doesn’t end.

Quite by accident, I discovered I have an infographic from a time long ago when I had self-confidence, even the faintest hope of getting a gainful job, and was putting all day every day into marketing myself. Check this out:

This is not the first time I’ve discovered a crapload of my own work by accident.

A few years ago, I thought I’d start with WordPress by using wordpress.com at which point I was told the username “aceofdatabase” was not available. I’ve never run up against anyone else trying to use that moniker, making it a handy personal brand. But, yeah, I had an entire WordPress-based portfolio that I had absolutely no recollection of creating which I found startling.

Visualize.me is outmoded. I can’t get a secure connection out of it and it sort of smacks of abandonment but still might be a neat way to make a personal timeline. I can think of other ways, too. Hopefully I’ll remember the next one.

This is partly how 2008’s global financial meltdown and poor health of the time affected me: some memory loss. I never did land another job in Philadelphia which is how I ended up moving “home” to Coudersport, Pennsylvania in 2012. Knowing I’m too honest I’ll leave it at this: my only dream was to never live here again; I probably should have had bigger dreams.

That 271 mile intrastate move roughly marks the beginning of my 30s and the end of my career as I knew it. Speaking of which, I’ve put Word and WordPress to the test by pasting my resume to a page here.

Vivaldi.net Email Settings

Maybe if I post these instructions on my own website I won’t have to scour for them? Seriously, I don’t know why it was so hard to find the proper information. I’ve found Vivaldi to be an innovative and thoughtful browser. They offer webmail, and here’s how you can set that up in an email client:

Typing All My Life

Typing all my life as resulted in some pretty decent speeds. The fastest I’ve ever typed is 125 WPM on an Mac LC-575 in keyboarding class in high school. I think Mavis Beacon was involved. This post is here just to state I’m great at note taking both personally and professionally. Do you feel like testing your might? Some people are so fast it’s even crazier than my own speed!
