Merry Christmas from my mom and our dear neurotic dog, Bax.

Happy holidays! A bit late, but oh well. I’ve been busy with Christmas and family matters, and of course, being unemployed. I am getting sick of explaining myself to relatives (same old yeah-I’m-still-jobless-no-vacancies-in-the-hospitals-yeah-I-know-it’s-so-hard-to-find-a-job-here-yeah-there-are-more-opportunities-abroad-but answer). January has to be better. Honestly, it’s becoming embarrassing whenever someone asks.

And with that thought in mind, I am giving my resume a face lift. I found this article at lifeclever.
Give your résumé a face lift

It might help, it might not, but I thought I’d share it to anyone reading this who might have the same problem as I do.

Oh and more about accidents- I managed to scald my big toe (the right one).

I’ve also had a few revelations about life and love and family and perseverance and myself, like only the holidays can give to you. I guess I will talk about that another day. Happy holidays again, and a good new year for everyone.

Nothing shoe-related today.  Here’s an instructional video for wrapping a wine bottle using furoshiki.  We are giving a nice bottle of wine to my mom’s orthopedic doctor for six years (who was kind enough to perform an operation on her without charging his surgeon fee, I mean, it was absolutely for free.  He’s just great, one of those rare doctors who isn’t using medicine as a business, and my idol).

I like this way of wrapping presents- it’s like giving two gifts, and it’s environmentally friendly since the cloth won’t be thrown away.   So I’m doing the wrapping and it’s going to be special.  Will post a picture after it’s done.
