No undershirts, Neil Lane, and too much making out.

Just a few thoughts on tonight’s final episode.

Jillian, you made a mistake.

Ed?  Really, Ed?  Ok, he is cute.  But he’s also awkwardly tall.  Why did I never notice what a giant Mr. Ed was until the final rose ceremony?  And Reid came back.  Reid.  The one who loved you but was just a little too timid to say it.  The one who stuck through, who made you laugh.  The cute one.

What was with all the dramatic music?  I had never noticed it in episodes passed.  And, the song they played as the montage of Ed and Jillian’s journey played…did anyone else notice it was Martina?  As in McBride?  As in the one who performed (the same song, in fact) on Jillian and Jake’s first date?   Funny how the montage left out the scene where Ed leaves.  Remember that?  He left because his job was more important.  Oh, yeah.  But then he came back, as so many of them did this season, because he had made a mistake.  A big one.  But apparently not one that was unforgiveable.

Props to Reid for returning, though.  And professing his love.  His “I love you this much” was too cute.  As is he.  Sorry you left heartbroken, Buddy.  And thank you for subtly correcting Jill by saying “indescribable” when defining the situation and not, as she did, “undescribable.”  We all called it when he had “prior commitments” that kept him from the Men Tell All special last week.  My scenario of what I wanted to go down was much better (and had a happier ending) than what actually happened.

Why didn’t Ed or Kiptyn wear undershirts under their dress shirts?  That seemed a bit weird.  And, nice gratuitous shot of Ed in his boxer briefs.  Guess his torso isn’t as defined as that of his competition.

Neil Lane seemed a bit…well, giddy.  I’d like to know who pays for the rings.  ABC?  Did Reid pay for his own ring, or did they fly Neil to Philly?  I’d like to think he paid for his own.  And picked it out without any help.  More reason to ❤ him. 

Was shocked they didn’t show the minivan cab and Ed’s white limo passing each other on the windy road…after Reid got dumped.  That?  Would’ve been great television.

I do not think Jake should be the next bachelor.  I liked him at first but he really is just too “perfect.”  I like the idea of Michael the break dance instructor and his twin being dual bachelors and vying for the same girls.

There seemed to be way more smooching than usual this week.  And groping.  And implications thereof.  And actual discussion of said activity.  I mean, leave something to our imaginations, please?  Thanks.

Chris Harrison pulled a fast one on Jillian with the whole Reid thing–and since when did he become a licensed therapist?   How do you feel right now?  Who do you love?  You know who you want.  You know what will make you happy. 

Ed could’ve done a better job picking the ring.  But, Kiptyn did already pick the best ring of them all. 

What’s with this “Ed is my best friend” BS?  How can he be your best friend already?  You barely spent any time with him.  And then subtract from that the three weeks he was at home.  At work.  Because that was more important than you.

In this economy…

I know there are a lot of people out there who are looking for jobs, whether because they were recently let go from theirs or because they are looking for a change.   One of my nerdy hobbies is helping people write resumes (I think career counselor may have been my true calling).  As you all know, writing a resume also generally comes hand in hand with writing a cover letter.

I recently was helping someone to do just that.  Since I felt a little rusty in the cover letter area, I thought I’d brush up by going online and reading some examples.  Some websites, like jobsearch.com, had well-written and useful examples; I also found that college career center websites were of help, too.  However, in my research, I found quite an appalling site.  You’d think, going to www.resumecoverletterexamples.com, that you had hit the jackpot.  The opening page is well-written and promises  that you will find hundreds of resume cover letter examples.  It claims to be “the perfect place” if you are on a search for a cover letter example. 

It all goes downhill from there.  The owner/creator of the site must’ve gotten bored and/or tired after completing the taxing job of creating the website and describing its purpose.  At that point, it appears as though this individual thought, “Hey, maybe I can outsource this to someone who doesn’t speak English as their native language!  Maybe I will just have that person write all the example cover letters!”

Here is just one example.  Looking for a job as an elementary school teacher?  I do not suggest sending this as your cover letter (which, as other sites will tell you, is your chance to make a first, and lasting, impression):

Dear Mr. Richardson,

As per your ad on internet that you will have first grade vacancies, I am applying for a teaching position at the elementary level. Please see my resume. I completed my teaching in third grade. My certification will be in both early childhood (PK-3) and elementary education (1-6).Because of my interest in higher studies, after this summer I will begin study on a Master’s in Reading degree.

As I always heard about your school, so I am ready to do work in your school at any time. I like hard work and always ready for helping others. I like to teach students and guide them to find success. I want my students always on top place and are full of meaningful experience, interesting learning that applies to their lives. I believe that this can be achieved through cooperative learning, meaningful activities, new technologies and internet also.

I am waiting for your call to decide our meeting timing. I would like to discuss about your school’s goals and how I can help in your goals.

Thank you for reading my resume and consideration

I have no more words.
