February 1, 2011 by Heather
a mountain’s worth of some motivation from my dear husband, I spent some time in his office working on my resume. Little known fact about Heather: I am not an extremely driven individual. Don’t misunderstand me, I want to succeed and achieve things and make a difference and all that….but most of the time I’d just rather take a nap and hope for the best. That is a bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but you get the idea. I am not what you would call a “go-getter.” I think I used to be, but somewhere between age 17 and the blissful here-and-now, the part of my brain that fed me doses of “dream big” and “reach for the sky” went awry. Who knows.
Luckily, I married a super goal-oriented and amazing guy (not to mention incredibly handsome) who truly believes in me and my ability to be more than I think I can be. He is always inspiring me and encouraging me to do and try things that my pessimistic brain says not to bother with (running a half marathon, for example).
Back to the resume. I am working on getting it together to send into Colorado State University in Fort Collins to apply for a job there that I am becoming increasingly interested in the longer I toss it around in my head. Andrew is the one who brought it to my attention, along with the idea that I should go for it.
Resume finished, check.
Cover letter, in progress, and reads as follows:
