I clearly have been watching way too much baseball lately with all the baseball lingo I have been throwing around lately. Go Phillies!
Anyways, I'm in a pickle because I just don't know what to do about this whole job search thing. I'm still doing my internship once a week. Except now I'm not technically the intern and I'm getting paid. I can't even tell you how much I love this job. I wish they were able to hire me full time. For once I feel so content with a job and feel so passionately about it. I feel as though I'm able to integrate what I love doing with what I'm good at and I'm learning so much about a field that I never knew much about before. I just love it! I'm trying to work hard and prove myself so that maybe they will see the value in hiring somebody on full time or even part time..just more than once a week!
The problem is the fact that I don't have a sugar daddy or rich parents to allow this lifestyle of only working one day a week. I do not want to leave this job to get a full time job that I probably won't love. I love this job too much. But I have plans of grad school, traveling, getting married in the near future (and not to mention I am notorious for blowing all my money on clothes and books) that just won't happen on the salary of someone working one day a week.
I sucked it up and got a babysitting job for a few months before I went to LA so I could just make some money. It bores me. I want to be doing what I went to school for. I babysat for all of middle school, high school, and college. I need a break from kids before I start popping them out myself.
So what to do, gentle reader? Do I suck it up and try to babysit until maybe they can hire me (even though there is no guarantee) or do I just move on and find a full time job? Ah..maybe I'll dust off the old Magic 8-ball and see if that has the answer..
On a brighter note..my trip to Los Angeles was AMAZING. So much fun and I'm not totally broke. I decided it might not be a good idea to spend all my money on Rodeo Drive and come home with credit card debt. Here's a little taste of LA from me to you..
