So, I just spent the last twenty minutes typing out a post that I’ve decided not to publish.
I know, I know. Bummer, right?
But my pastor recently said something that I should probably take to heart since my next #NoMoreProcrastination task is to look for a new job, and the internet is no longer safe for “work complainers.”
So I’ll keep how I really feel about my current employment to myself. Leave it as a draft post that mysteriously gets published after I’m dead; write the rest in my prayer journal to God.
He knows how desperate I am.
So for this third week in November, my goal is to apply to at least one new job every day. At least one, but I’m not limiting myself to just one. The more the merrier, right?
I think the reason why I eased off on my job search was because 1.) no one was biting, and it was kind of demoralizing, knowing that I spent all this money on a degree and then couldn’t find a job in my field (or as a writer, one that actually PAYS!)
The tragic flight of the millennial.
And 2.) as I mentioned in my introductory post, I got complacent with my current position, with the easiness of it. But the longer I stay, the more dissatisfied and unfulfilled I become with it.
Looking back on this post from two years ago, I laugh sadly at how not much has changed since then. I’m looking for a purpose, a reason for being. Yes, I’m praying about it, which is something I hadn’t done before, although I lied and told people I was.
I still have a firm belief that what I’m meant to do has everything to do with my writing, whether it’s working at a publishing company, or publishing my first book that becomes a New York Times best seller (reaching a bit? An Amazon top seller? That’s still an accomplishment).
I just hope I get some direction before I grow impatient and do something stupid on impulse, like apply for a job at McDonald’s.
I really don’t want to work at McDonald’s, but maybe Barnes and Noble is hiring…
