Learning!  
Down-side: Because of weird hidden library errors, it just took me 5 hours to print my resume to PDF.

Up-side: I can now debug all kinds of shit on my mac using command-line programming shenanigans on the Terminal app I did not previously know existed.

Which is good, because at about hour 2 I felt like my entire resume was a lie. (I HAVE NO COMPUTER SKILLS AND CANNOT TROUBLESHOOT OR SOLVE PROBLEMS CREATIVELY AND SO ALL THAT IS LEFT IS FILING.)

Conclusion: I'm pretty sure 90% of my admin superpowers are just effective googling skills.

I feel that way about my job as well. Everyone thinks I'm a computer genius when I regularly just Google "How do I do X?"

BUT. YOU GET POINTS FOR KNOWING WHAT TO EVEN ASK. *awards you seventy*

I am so grateful for all the people on the internet who give out free knowledge!!

90% of IT superpowers are effective googling skills, so you're in good company.

I was gonna say the thing that separates the admins and problem solvers of the world is GOING AND LOOKING FOR THE DAMN SOLUTION AT ALL.

We should have a freelance company of business problem-fixing and we would wear capes.

Oh if you need a proofreader for your resume or a cover letter for anything, let me know. I got skills, baby! Not of my own, but other people's lives? I can spin into the finest Egyptian cotton.

Hi, I've driven like 1500 miles in the last 5 days and have not slept nearly enough and I'm completely freaked out about how much money I just spent so I'M A LITTLE NUTS RIGHT NOW. kthxbye.

Oooh! I'd appreciate that! I got similar skillz because I reviewed so many damn resumes in my last gig, but man, it's hard to do that with your own stuff. I keep feeling like I should downplay everything because it's rude to talk yourself up but ugh, it's a resume, so why can't I just write I'M KIND OF A BIG DEAL and send that in?

Eeeeeeeeeeeeee massive amounts of driving yayyy! Keep going and visit me! :-D

I'm continually amazed how many people have zero effective googling skills, honestly. It's a real superpower!

I had that hanging up over my IT station at my old job! :) I don't think anyone read it, though.

And that would be why you (and me) are the wizards. LOL.
