The broken car must be an old model that he doesn't want, haha. I shall treasure it!

For my web class, we have a variety of projects that we need to complete by the end of the semester. One is a "personal" page, which is of course about us; for this I made a quick page in spring-like pastel colors, with a doodle of a catepillar on it. Another task assigned to us is a web resume.

We had to do a bit of "research" and find examples of good and bad resumes online. I realized that I stuck just about every one that I found in "bad" simply because I hated their color selection ... they were all so painfully bland. I resolved to make my resume vibrant, and to that end I selected a pink, white, and black theme that I used for my journal a long time ago and remembered as being very crisp.

Fortunately for my web resume, I talked to a friend of mine who has always been an excellent moderating influence on my whims. The following are excerpts from our conversation as I worked through the project.

Me: I could switch them, turn that into the resume, and the pink page into the "About Me" page we have to make.
Me: Pllllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease say I can keep the catepillar.

Giving up the pink was hard ... did I have to give up the cute catepillar too??

...

Him: But, back to Resumes. They have to say, "I'm a Resume." without people actually having to read it. XD;
Me: ...
Him: Cause business guys.. they're lazy.
Me: That's so ...
Me: ...
Me: Dammit
Him: I'm sorry. ^^;
Me: I'll revolutionize wherever I work, really.
Him: Yeah, I'll know in the back of my head that you're in charge when a business organization is run in a huge pink building shaped like a catapillar in the center of town.
Me: XD

...

Under my "abilities" list, I had a few interesting items.

Him: "Getting large groups of stupid people to move" XDDD
Me: It's SO TRUE.
Me: ... do I have to take that one out? ;_;
Him: Well, I think you should reword it. XD;;
Me: "Making Lots of Stupid People Move Fast"
Me: Give me some suggestions. XD
Him: Thats a hard one. Able to lead large groups of people?

....

Him: About section should be different for each resume you wite.
Him: err write*
Me: This is just a "general" one to fulfill class requirements, haha
Him: It should say something like, "I am currently seeking a full time position in .. blah blah, blah."
Him: Or "Hi, My name is .... I enjoy .... and I am seeking a position in ..."
Him: Something like that.
Me: "I am currently seeking a full-time position that won't drive me up the wall."
Him: NO! Try again! *Slaps a ruler on a desk* Welcome to Bland 101 damnit. You WILL learn. XD;
Me: ....
Me: ::cries::

Yeah unless you have some REALLY darn impressive credentials I don't think you could afford a goofy resume.

I've seen a resume that's impressive to the point of "this person is a demigod in the field" and the resume is still pretty straight-laced.

I have a feeling the catepillar is going to get ditched.

A BROKEN toy car? My stuff is never broken! Only loved much. And i never give my loved stuff away. So I suppose you could say I gave you my love, my dear love. hahaha
