PERSONAL NEWS #266
April 1st, I took care of many errands and chores around the neighborhood.  Picked up a framed print I had done for the kitchen and it looks great.

April 2nd, due to “tax season” I had to work 5 hours at the office from 10am to 3pm.  [Paid overtime, oh yeah!]  Afterwards, since it was such a lovely day, I took the East River ferry boat ride home to my neighborhood.

April 3rd to 7th, damn “tax season” is really kicking into overdrive.  It is resulting in stress, aggravation and paid overtime.

April 8th, after Dana finished cleaning my apt, I had a good private yoga session with Fabrice and gave him a raise in fee.  Took care of errands, chores and laundry before doing job hunting on the internet.

April 9th, I had to work paid overtime at the office from 10am to 3:30pm due to tax season.  Missed the ferry boat at the pier, so took office paid car service home to my hood.

April 10th to 12th, damn “tax season” is still kicking it into overdrive these three days at the office.  Way too much stress, aggravation and paid overtime.  I am so done with this “job assignment” and counting down the days to the end of it.

April 13th, office life has slowed down abit, and very thankful for that.  Had a call / interview with an agency during my lunch hour.  I updated the resume last week and been farming it out to agencies and prospective jobs for EA.

April 14th, another slow day at the office, and another call / interview with an agency during my lunch hour.

April 16th, it was a beautiful, warm, sunny Easter Sunday in NYC.  I headed to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens at 1pm and then joined a friend for tea/dessert at Cocoa Bar in Park Slope afterwards.

April 17th, a busy day at the office during the final days of “tax season”.  Worked 3 hours’ overtime and took car service home.  I am so done with this dead-end temp job.

April 18th, I had a call / interview with another agency during my lunch hour.

April 19th, slow day at the office, and a call / interview with another agency during my lunch hour.

April 20th, after work I had over to the BFP headquarters to assist with phone banking during our fundraising drive for the organization.

April 21st, last day at the temp job and left around 5pmish.  Took the East River ferry boat to my hood.

April 22nd to 25th, I visited with the parents in upstate NY.  Helped them out with yard work, laundry, grocery shopping and took them out for breakfast several times.  Got to see my brother and sister-in-law, plus get my hair done at salon.

April 26th, I had an appt in the morning with a new “temp” agency down in lower Manhattan.  Went well and have an interview lined up for a temp position next week on Monday.  Afterwards, I headed uptown to meet up with an ex-coworker for a light lunch and conversation.  Then headed back to my hood for a much-needed manicure, early dinner at Jungle Café, check out The Box House Hotel and a new apt bldg on Box Street before doing some grocery shopping.

April 27th, I had two job interviews today.  One for an actual job and the other with an agency.  Both went very well.  I also stopped by my old office in Times Square to see an ex-coworker and get some of my updated resume printed out.  After the interviews, I headed back to my hood for a late lunch at The Jungle Café.  Delicious vegan food!

April 28th, I had two much needed doctor appts today … chiropractor and lung specialist … then back to my hood for a delicious vegan meal at The Jungle Café before heading home to do laundry.

April 30th, I had a good private yoga session with Fabrice at the apt, and afterwards I headed down to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to join a friend.  All the trees were in bloom with fragrant blossoms and the Lilacs were still out.  It was a cool, windy day and the gardens were crowded with people.  Picked up some lovely goodies from the gift shop and then back to friends apt for a light meal.
