Standout Jobs

I had never even heard of standout jobs... it was nice to see a site to win off the normal track. It was easy to use and well laid out(or for my personal preferences it was) It is a recruiting site for companies and it appears to be slightly more selective in posts, clients, etc than or career builder. There is both an area for recruiters and job seekers.


It was odd to see so many of the sites that we use on a daily basis to win awards. I was amazed that there were so many social networking sites listed. There were bookmarking sites that I had never seen or used before.

I love Craigslist! It was awesome to see it listed along with Facebook, Myspace, GoogleDocs! I'm going to bookmark the so I can visit some more of the sites that I didn't recognize or didn't recognize. :)
I'm a blogging machine today... Google Docs are awesome! We actually currently use the spreadsheet functionality and we used the docs when planning our wedding planning.

Spreadsheets are used for clients listing, developing of their families, and account numbers.

For personal training- contracts, training plans are produced for word documents. Spreadsheets are a great way to track work-out progress.

For wedding planning we used them to sign contracts, and guest lists.

Also, it is great to open documents on the web without having to download the documents if you are briefly reading a document.

Finally Back and Life is Calm before the storm...

We just returned back from the Bahamas for our honeymoon after a whirl wind week of wedding preparations and the wedding.... AHHH! It is finally over so much build up and we see the pictures to see how everything really turned out. I was happy to see it come and go and I wished that I would have been able to talk to more guests. The ceremony and reception only lasted a total of four hours and we pushed away from the dock a bit early. I'm glad we spent the extra money on some of the small things and saved in other places. The flowers turned out amazing! The should have for the price I guess. We had a lovely time in the Bahamas and were sad to come back up to Washington even though it is actually a nice day out.

Now back to the daily grind. The lack of internet all week... yes all week was rough trying to get any homework done or at all for that matter. SO now it is time to hit the books.

I just completed the bloglines assignment for 710. It wasn't too bad after I had verified my account. Initially, I was unable to figure out why I couldn'tsubscribe to any sites. Then a little pop-up gave it away...Thank goodness! Once I logged back in it was game on:) I subscribed to our class site,,, and a few more totaling roughly ten or so sites.

I'm going to resave and update my podcast from last week seeing as I could check my e-mail to see that it was saved properly and finish up this weeks assignments :)

Master Program

This was the first week of the Masters Program at FPU. I wasn't nearly as prepared as I had initially hoped. Work and Jb's school and functions hindered my ability to log on and completed everything that I hoped until the last minute......GRRR... hopefully next week will be a bit better as I have a couple days off before the wedding and heading to the Bahamas. Life is crazy busy right now.
