Thoughts on Jobs and Transitions

I hate the job application process but I get so excited when that process starts reaping phone calls and interviews are scheduled and the potential of a fresh start is on the horizon.  I’ve got my eye on one job specifically that I would tag as a dream job but I’m a long-shot and trying to temper my expectations. I’ve made interview appointments for another job I’m also excited about so we’ll see how it all turns out. I’ve talked here before about how much I enjoy the interview process.

I’m sure you’re all wondering what happened to all of the crap I spouted about this new job being a career, not just a job and such. Well I’m not going to get into it too much, but working with Carina has ignited something in me that made me realize I have skills and interests that I haven’t tapped into even remotely in my recent day job endeavors. So now I believe is the time to explore other options.

As I get older and adjust my expectations and priorities regarding my own writing, I realize that a day job is not just 8 hours of random crap I do for a paycheck that I can shuck off at the first hint of a  book deal. I’ll likely be needing one for quite a while so now is the time to reconfigure and make sure it’s not one that I hate.

An ongoing story for sure.
