It's all I've ever really had.

That's why I'm in my current position - avoid burnout, do good work, have fun. Now if it weren't for the office-sharing, everything would be perfect. (Actually, working from home would be perfect, but I'll start with my own space and work up from there...)

I went back today (Thurs) and talked to two other copy editors. Yeah, it'd be dull. But it'd improve some of my rustier skills and make me more marketable down the line.

So, provided they make a decent offer, I am leaning towards taking it.

My heart will have to be elsewhere.

Yes! Dear God, Yes! And thrice yes!

We spend so much time at our offices. A lack of passion but an excellent community and environment is more than most (including myself, pre-lay-off) can point to.

Hell, if you don't take it, I'll move out there. Sign me up!


(Strangely, I'm *busier* now that I don't have a day job. Go figure.)

FD: I'm so sorry about your job. Was this recent? What fools!

I hope you're back in action soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the time with the little one. Yep, sure is busier, isn't it?

about me

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
