Stopped at the Procrastination Station--All Aboard!


A few months ago I decided to move on to a new job. Of course, I was asked for an updated resume, and I’ve been procrastinating. I haven't moved on to a new job yet. Writing poetry is more fun. Tonight I’ve decided to make writing a resume fun too. Who said a business consultant's software prowess can’t read like poetry?

May Angelou says:
Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art.
So tonight, I challenge you to take on a something you’ve been avoiding. Jump start this avoided thing with something that you love--art your way. If it’s cleaning, put on your favorite CD. If it’s doing the budget or paying bills, write the check in crayon and put bunny stickers on the envelopes. Draw a picture of what life looks like this avoided thing is done. Create your master piece! Go have fun!


 Resume
Knacked the anomaly
Spinning rainbows less the sun
A spread-sheeted extravaganza
In a fish bone diagram

Racing resources meet
Off-season lemon limits
Softened in bloodied honey
And scattered with cinnamon

Three-armed juggler packing
Bunched bananas and bouncy balls
While balanced one-footed atop
The square root of eighty-1

Exponentials in two to the twelfth
In at least a ba-goo-trillion bits
A byte found is simple
Amidst a smuggled giggle

Control F will find your way
At a clearance price
In seven hours a day
Now go outside. Let's play.
