    Happy belated thanksgiving to the two of you!!

    So I had my job interview today... Lasted 40 minutes- CRAZY! Great interview and they just called me for references. I'm hoping for the best on this one. It's at U of W and it's a 13 month contract. At least with something like that I can be more prepared for unemployment the next time it creeps up on me. It also gives me time to work on my resume Hope all are well!

    Oh, that sounds hopeful! And contracts sometimes get renewed or turn into permanent jobs. And if you don't like it, you have an easy out.

    It's a cycle of eating at certain times that helps get burn cycles going again. Essentially you eat as high a protein breakfast as you can handle then eat again 5 hours later and 5 hours after that being careful not to eat within the 3 hour window before bed. It helped me get going on paleo to start and I figure it would help with this plateau.

    As a side bar today was my first day of work... interesting is the word I'll use. My boss spent the morning complaining that things aren't as good as they used to be but I seemed to click with the other guy more in the afternoon. It's a 13 month contract at the university of waterloo. Hoping it may take me places but we'll see.
