Starting with ME

This is my first attempt at blogging, so bear with me. . .
I've been thinking about starting a blog for quite some time now. Although my life has been very interesting lately - it's not exactly what I want posted all over the internet. So, I've been trying to come up with a worthwhile topic. . .
Again, the craziness of my life would make for a good comedic blog (or a really sad tragic blog). However, I wanted to focus on something positive. I want to use this blog to talk about making a positive difference in the community and ultimately the world.
On a personal level, I've been trying to transition into work that makes a positive difference in the lives of others. In December 2007, I left the security of a 9-5 (okay, usually 6:30-3ish) job with decent pay to find my "dream job." Little did I know when I quit my job that the economy would completely tank and I'd be lucky to find a job anywhere, much less my "dream job." So for the last 16 months, I have been working at Starbucks and trying to break my way into the non-profit world to no avail. Unfortunately, this economy has brought about a lot of job seeking fish in a very small sea of potential jobs and when employers look at resumes they will inevitably choose people with experience in their field. Not a great time to be switching careers.
Which brings me to this blog.
It's time to make a difference in this crazy world of ours - dream job, or no dream job.
And I'm starting with ME.
So, what do ya say? Let's change the world, one blog post at a time.
