The Neck

Today was rough.  I sometimes pull muscles in my neck or trapezius when I do overhead dumbbell presses.  It tends not be the type of pain that’s enough to cause you to scream out in pain (unless you turn your head the wrong way, then Yikes!) but is an insidious sort of pain that just lingers.

I took an ibuprofen yesterday (should have taken two, Damn it), and have been riding it out today.

Normally, these type of things don’t particularly bother me, mentally speaking, but today I saw a rejection letter in my mailbox–in the past I have been almost glad to get them because they at least imply that someone looked at my resume–but today I was being hit from too many fronts, and couldn’t brush it off.

So I have come to the conclusion that rejection letters aren’t good enough, though I don’t know what else to do.  The days of walking into someplace with a resume are gone, and I honestly think that there are too many filters out there between employers and the unemployed.

That being said, I am going to keep on keeping on.
