Happy Wednesday! It’s been a long week already and I’m so glad it’s all downhill from here. My schedule feels crazy! I don’t know how people with more than me on their schedules do it. I had a long, long day today with a job interview. And tomorrow, and Friday, too. And probably next week. But that is next week Jenna’s problem, haha. I’m struggling for sure these days. My schedule is planned out from wake up to bedtime. By the hour. Literally. Ack.
But! I feel like I get so much more accomplished when I’m busy. So, I welcome it. I have to schedule relaxation time, and remind myself that it’s ok to take breaks, but hey– a small price to pay.
Today, I’ve got my workout done–I’ve been running/walking a lot around a lovely lake–and dinner, and schoolwork, and… whew. Looking forward to the freakin’ weekend. I’m still looking for jobs, and I have my Meetup tonight for grad school so I want to touch all of my assignments. That plus my dinner and everything else really makes things a bit difficult to wade through. Like I said on Monday, though, I’m trying to give myself credit, so at least I’ve made dinner and worked out every day this week!
I had an interview for a second job today, and I think it went pretty well. This interview was also with a local university. My fingers are crossed! I’m a little concerned that, because I want to keep my current job, I may not be flexible enough for them, if our schedules will align, for them to make me an offer. But it was worth a shot! Honestly, I’m not sure that I want it, at all. It has pros and cons, and I’m not really sure yet which side wins out… But, my job gives my cupcakes, andI don’t have to take it if I get an offer! Ha.
I’ve written before that I have big, scary dreams, and I’m not really sure what direction I want to go in. If I were to get this job, I would be working for the university for 60 hours a week. That’s a lot of my time, and I have many other things I want to use that time for as well. So, 60 hours a week is a big commitment. BUT I also need to pay the bills, you know, and jobs do that.
I’ve thought about just getting something flexible, like a serving job, or remote data-entry, but I really can’t decide. Jobs make me confused. I don’t know what skills I want to focus on. Don’t know if I’m wasting my time with the skills I’m working on now. I don’t know how my schedules will allow for my dreams. Where I can fit my hopeful career into my jobs. People tell you that you should look toward the future, but how far is too far? At what point is looking toward the future neglecting the present? Who knows? I certainly don’t. I just have to hope that all progress is good progress. Right now, I’m just keeping on.
Haha–more content later, I hope, but in the meantime, I don’t want to let to long go!
