Hey... I am still here. Alive and well. I have been knee deep in finishing up at the old job and full time looking for a new one. This is like 2 full time jobs if you want to know the truth. I know everyone knows what it's like to be looking for a job. Factor in while working, juggling 3 kids and a pretty hectic list of other obligations and perhaps you can see why I have been MIA. I'm tired and I don't have to tell any blogger how much extra work blogging is but for those of you who are just readers, it's a crap ton of extra effort on top of what all bloggers already do in real life. But... I miss everyone and I wanted to at least tell you guys what's going on in my world. Big things...
Over the past couple of weeks I have interviewed with 4 companies and honestly I am really excited about the opportunities that might come out of any one of them. The first of the face to face round was yesterday. I hate interviewing, I really do. I get so worked up about it and it just is what it is, there is only so much preparation you can do at this point in your career. I have done it a thousand times now. I'm good at it but what I am really good at now is knowing what I am not excited about. I am torn between any job is better than no job or... wait for the perfect job. Newsflash I feel like in a lot of ways I just lost the perfect job, in a lot of ways it wasn't but in the ways that matter for my sanity it was.
I am not looking forward to Friday, my last day. I have to say goodbye to people that I really have enjoyed and I am sad. I have to walk away from a project that so many people put blood, sweat and tears into that will most likely never become a reality. I have to leave one of the coolest places I have worked in a while and hope to find something even better. The good news is that typically something better always comes along. My resume is really strong and this last year has added some really valuable experience to it. But... it's still hard and that has been making it difficult for me to focus on this space. But I will again I hope sooner than later.
Thanks for reading if you hung in this long, I am not sure this was a stellar piece of writing but it is what is on my mind at this exact moment in time. I am not always the greatest at adjusting to change these days, it takes me a minute. Go figure... I should be a Pro!
Turn and face the strange,
