yet another transition

I'm changing jobs again. I am taking a risk: Taking a big pay cut to take a temporary halftime position that I think will take me one step closer to my Big Dreams. This is the stuff I've been hinting around with in the last few blog posts.

I am hoping this will all work out for the best. At the very least, I'll have some time to think, to write, and to maybe lose the Dissertation Pounds, the (Old) New Job Pounds, and the leftover Winter Weight. In the meantime, I'm wearing a lot of skirts and the more forgiving of the clothes I bought for this job, plus the few bigger items I finally broke down and bought.

I'm thinking of doing some freelance writing, too, though I'm not sure where to start with that. I know I want to take some time to work on things that have been buzzing around in my head as I drive to and from work.

I'm really excited about this opportunity, though a little sad to leave the friends I made with Snazzy (Old) New Job.

  3. A big risk, yes, but also an amazing opportunity to follow those Big Dreams. I know you'll enjoy not having the long commute and all the traveling, and to have more time for writing. Not to mention time with your hubbie and kitties. I hope the Dreamy New Job is all you want it to be.

  4. Jen, you made a scary move but my was it brave, and anything that brings you one step closer to your dreams is always going to be a step in the right direction. As long as you have a roof over your head, food in your tummy and clothes on your back, money doesn't matter...find your happiness darling, good luck!

  6. Life is about change and change is often good. Just think of it like hitting the "refresh" button on your computer and load up a new plan to take you in the direction you want!
