restless...

Yes I am restless...once things start to get a relatively normal routinelike I evaluate my existence. What will I do next?? What should I do?? SOOOOOO, I am now applying to jobs everywhere again. I did this last August and had to turn down all jobs I got offered for different reasons. This time I have to be smart about it. I need to pay off the 35,000 in student loans that I will owe starting in Sept. That sucks! I have also realized that this will not be possible by starting out working in disaster relief. Basically I do not see my self making enough money to pay them off while in another country. Of course it's possible, but in reality I need to look back to the US.

The jobs I have applied for are all administrative/Executive Assistant type jobs. It's what I know...the thing is that I am being more selective about the organizations I choose. I gave up a potential job with the NYCLU earlier this year, which I am not sorry about although that would have been great experience and a plus on my CV. The reason that I am not sorry I passed up that opportunity is because it was not the right timing and it just didn't "feel right" for me then. All of the jobs I have applied for are in either DC or NY with the exception of one in India. The organizations I am applying with have offices in other countries so maybe after working for them for a year or so, I can be transferred? Who knows, I may get some great offers and decide to stay here?? My mind changes every day (sometimes multiple times during the day!).

I will know what's right when I see it and in the meantime, I am thinking of moving out of this flat (for multiple reasons that I will post about later). That change alone may be enough to satisfy me for awhile. I did move the furniture around in the living room which helped satisfy my "thirst for change"...but only for about a week...
