So I got my second review back for the book, and its obvious I need to do some repositioning of the concept. Career counselors are not going to accept, or more importantly, encorporate a book into their program if it comes off as a replacement or replication of what they are already doing--especially not from someone who has a lot more experience than them.
So, if you can't beat them, join them. Basically, I'm going to rewrite it to make it "Make Your Career Counselor's Life Easier From Day One." It will basically have all the same content, but it will be positioned so that its basically meant to prepare you for the regular career education process offerred by a school. The idea is that your career education, like any other education, is all about what you put into it.
The second part of this is that I'm going to try to partner up with a career counselor who might make commentary, introductions--that kind of peripheral content addition that adds credibility, but doens't change my work. So, back to the drawing board.
These photos are from a week and a half ago... Holian came up for the Fordham football game, and coincidently, Brian and Tim, along with their Brooklyn crew came out to the same bar that night. Claire, Suzie, Carlie, and Kathleen came, too. It was more people that I knew at one place than I think I've ever had before.
Ok, so here are some pictures I took from Homecoming... I know it was like over a month ago, but now that I've switched my blog to Typepad, its a lot easier for me to post photos. I'll be more diligent about posting them in real time as soon as I catch up. In addition to hanging out in the parking lot, me, McBride and Liz Werner visited Queens Court, our dorm in freshmen year, to dig up the past. That night, I hung out with Deirg & Co. at the Beer Garden.
So Jeff the Intern says to me today, "I'll bet you Hilary is glad that Bush won, so she can run in 2008."
I just looked at that little map with that huge red section in the middle and said, "Look at this country. Look at how much red there is in the middle. They couldn't get John Kerry elected... there's no way in hell that this country elects Hilary Clinton. No way in hell."
And that gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling.
So, kayaking season at the Downtown Boathouse is over, and its quite saddening. I basically lived there on weekends, spending a good chunk of my Saturdays and Sundays helping people get onto the water, patrolling the embayment, and meeting lots of new people. I took some trips to the Statue of Liberty, Governor's Island, and up the Hudson to the Intrepid. It was probably the best summer I've ever had. Here are a few pics I took towards the end of the summer. When I get a chance, I'll move these pics from the Graveyard trip over to this site as well.
