Almost three years ago, I wrote about a private online journal I used to keep (back before 'blog' was part of my vocabulary) called "Daily Dreams." At that time, I also promised that if I came across any other interesting tidbits from that brief venture I'd post them here. Better late than never, I suppose.

I wrote the following post on May 8, 2002:

The job market sure is frustrating right now. Since about the beginning of April I have been working my butt off trying to find a job, and as of yet there has been no payoff. I haven't taken it as a sign of my inability, though, as just about everyone I know is in the same boat. I heard today that the job market has decreased by about 30% from last year — a year that was pretty stagnant in its own right. I wouldn't be as frustrated or as worried, if my finding a job didn't weigh so heavily on the act of moving Katie up here from Arizona. We have both waited so long to be together, that it would be devistating [sic] to have to wait even longer because I haven't found a job. There are certainly options, but none of them really fit our current plans. We want to move into a place in downtown Seattle, so the connections I have in Arizona and the interest I've received in California don't really do me any good. Who knows what lies ahead...I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

As short-lived as it was, I'm really glad I kept that journal when I did. The span of about six months that it covered was a very interesting time in my life. Though it exists as nothing more than an old Access database at this point, it's nice to be able to read through some of the entries every now and then and get a glimpse into what was on my mind during that pivotal time in my life.
