Some days I am tempted to just make that my cover letter and be done with it. Other days I want to drop the please and insert a few others of the four-letter arrangement.

This actually isn't meant as anything angst-filled, more an acknowledgment that job hunters spend crazy amounts of time on those buggers and they're all such BS. "I am highly skilled in [objective 1 quoted from the advert], [objective 2], [buzz wordy jargon], and [objective 3]. I can technology and word, and have even been known to be a team player." It's all rather hilarious.

I'll admit, I haven't made the job hunt as much of a priority as I should have. Too exhausted, too soul-crushing. I'm on a bit of an upswing just now because of a work situation that is ridiculous and probably illegal, but equally I know if I brought up to my boss I'd be told to get over it. Which is telling. (I deserve better!) So I'm writing a lot of these letters, and the amount of work they take really is bizarre. It makes me smile, for some reason.
