I am having a really good time with this unemployment situation. I used to go stir crazy when I was off work for more than a few days, but I have changed. I'm really enjoying being off work. I would love to never have to take another job. I want to pursue creative things and do what I want to do instead of what I have to do.
I got a call from the HR lady at the hospital near home and they want me to come in for a face to face interview.
This means I am a serious contender for that job. I could hyperventilate on the heavy sighs here. On one hand, Yay! Job! Insurance! Security! On the other hand, Boo! Hiss! Job! Moving away from this place I love... etc. I really need the safety of medical insurance and a paycheck is nice... but I so don't want to go to another boring admin job.
My plan is to talk to the people who work in the department I would be heading up and see what the vibe is over there. It *might* be a cushy and easy job. There are a few people in the department, so this is one place where I would not be expected to do everything myself. I don't know. I wanted more time to be off. This is one of those situations where I have to either take it now, before I'm ready, or let it go by and maybe regret it terribly down the road. Dilemma. My life is full of dilemmas.
I'll bet they don't have another candidate with experience in LTAC reimbursement.
DAMN me and my awesome skillz.
I am making clothes left and right in second life. I've perfected my prim skirt. But I don't know if I can really build up a big business of this in the time I have left on unemployment. Also. I am under a lease right now and that goes till May. So it will cost me to get out of it. I have to check on that. I may be able to do something about that. On the upside, it is a lot cheaper to live in the town I'm considering and I looked at rental houses on the internet. I saw one that was extremely cute and had a big in-ground swimming pool in the back yard and it is for rent for less than 300 a month more than I pay for my 1 bedroom apartment here. I thought that house would be way too much, but I could totally afford that. It's a charming Acadian house with a long porch and cute gables on the roof, and a big pool. Maaayyybbeeee. I'll see what I can find out about this potential job.
If I don't update before the new year, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
