Couple more things

  1. I think I have the post to Facebook thing worked out now. No, no I don’t, gonna have to contact support.
  2. My wife is amazing.
  3. Shaving first with, then against, the grain of your beard really DOES make it better. I now understand, but I’m not doing it to the mustache area, as I still fear I’m going to remove my nose accidentally.

Thanks!

Resume update!

So I figured I’d mention that my resume has been updated, looking a bit spiffier, thanks to the assistance of the Reverend Doctor Barbara Ewton of The First Congregational Church of Verona, who my dearest Emma lives with, helps and who is giving us a lot of help in the wedding preparations! It’s down to one page, the fonts are updated (Segoe UI), and it’s really looking much better. I probably need to update the infographic that I’ve had going with my resume, as well, to make it a bit more punchy.

I hadn’t really thought about it in quite a while, but it really needed a revamp. Next step is to put it up on the job sites, get a push on my visibility.
