Unemployed but not undone

Trying to get a job stinks. The whole process is degrading and makes you feel desperate.
Like today, for example, where I walk into a situation thinking I am actually going to have an interview and I don't get to talk to anyone at all. I am handed an application ( they already have a copy of my resume with all the same information) and told that if they are interested they will contact me within a week or so. And if I was really honest with myself, I don't want that job. If they offered me the job I would take it because they have great benefits and I need something to pay the bills. But how do I sell myself if I haven't sold myself on the job.
I have been through a few interviews recently where I realized I am too interesting for the job. It's not only over-qualified, it's that my rich life experiences can't really fit into a cubicle.
I can't sell myself well into a cubicle. So what do I do? Where do I go from here?
I know that God has a plan for my life and that I don't see the details until He is ready for me to see them, but that sucks too. 
I'm not giving up on Him, so I guess I shouldn't give up on myself either.

Run it out

I started running every day back at the beginning of April and have for the most part kept it up.
The thing with running that I have realized is that when I don't run I get depressed and I let negative feelings and thoughts creep in. It's not so much about the weight loss or anything but has been an amazing stress reliever. 
I would love to be a marathon runner some day but for now, I do 2 1/2 miles and feel the stress and sweat leave my body. Try it, it works!

I am so excited to have my laptop back!!!
My Dad had his stolen and then I let him borrow mine for a while.
I feel like I am discovering the internet all over again. I love blogs. This one, and many others.
They feel like magazines to me, only you don't have to cut down any trees to write a blog!
There will be many more posts now that I am back in the land of the internet.
