Ok, I've been away for too long. But I have an excuse--Job Search 2010. I've been feeling way more anxious than I thought I would. I guess I fell victim to coworkers and acquaintances telling me it was a bad time to find a job (no kidding--you're not the only ones watching the local news!).
My confidence suffered, and I was looking into alternate careers. And then I got several job offers. Mind you, these offers were before the standard hiring period, which really put my mind at ease.
So I felt great. Then I didn't know which job to choose. After ten years at one job, it's difficult for me to articulate what I really want in a new place of employment. I thought and thought, and then I decided to sleep on it.
And then I stopped sleeping. Dreams of interviewing, choosing, and proving myself filled my head.
Today I hope to stop all that. I've made my choice, and I'm dealing with all the subsequent paperwork.
It looks like I'll be a gifted and talented specialist in a local public school--what a great step up, and what a great fit for me!
Now I'm not sleeping because I've got a new job and new expectations to learn....
