same ole post

It's really no surprise that I have to blog about my job again is it?

I've at least had the convo with my supervisor...she knows I'm looking for another job, she's supportive and even said "anyone would be lucky to have you as an employee...I'll definitely be sad to see you go, you're one of my best workers." I'm at least grateful that she's not pissed that I want to leave.

Hopefully I'll get some calls and have some interviews soon...otherwise I'll be quitting without a job to fall back on and resort to a Starbucks barista.

I haven't figured out what that thing is that clicks with me. I don't know what I'd like to do, I just know it isn't what I'm doing now. I know that I'd much rather live in Italy where they work 9 months and break for 3. I also know that I'd much rather live off Canon Beach and run a coffee shop for 6 months out of the year and travel the rest of it. I know that whatever it is I end up doing for a vocation needs to be something that makes me excited to get up in the morning and not totally bummed.

I know you've heard this all before...just have to get it out...again.

As someone who was once your supervisor... I concur (and I sure I hope I told you this lots) with your current supervisor. You are a fabulous employee. And... anyone WOULD be lucky to have you! If I were selfish, I would wish for you to be back here, with me! But...I know this is not your calling or passion.

I know you will find the perfect fit. Hang in there. It does take time, and it stinks that in the meantime we do have to "pay the bills." Such is life, but man... when you find your true calling - there is no greater feeling!

Stay out of school. Keep from incurring additional debt. TRUST ME. Start job searching and send out a gazillion resumes. Throw doo-doo against the wall and see what sticks - the majority of people fall into careers. The career chooses you, strangely enough. You will find something that clicks - I promise.

Oh. And Starbucks? Great healthcare benefits and free coffee. What's not to like?
