So I’m going to discuss something other than gaming for a change. Because while gaming is my life, I need to have something to pay for it.
Boo how to get there.
Now I consider myself a moderately successful college graduate with a job at least and a wonderful husband. The problem is that this job tends to really get in the way of that thing called the rest of life. I see my husband for maybe 4 hours of the day. I don’t get to really do anything during the week. Instead of just 8 hours a day I’m doing about 12 hours once you include the awful DC commute. I take the train. It would be longer if I drove. Mind you I tend to get lots of school work done on that train bit, but it is still a bit of a drag realizing you live not even 30 miles away from work and on average it takes 2.5 hours to get there.
So I have been applying for other jobs. I applied for one back down in the area I went to school at and got called back for a second interview. After the first interview I’m not sure if I want the job. I want to do the things that the job entales, just not everywhere it goes. It doesn’t really pay much more, my commute would be shorter, but I may travel longer. It doesn’t really move me anywhere except away from a lot of the friends I have developed over the past few months.
I am not sure what I do. I have other applications in. Waiting on other things. But I still don’t know. Those other things could take a while. But I guess I’ve been doing 12 hours so far there is no reason I can’t keep it up for a while longer.
Plus do I really want to move farther away from my family again with all the crazy stuff that is happening with them? While I have my own life, they are my family and I do need to be around to support them…
BTW if anyone is reading this that has a position open in Emergency Management/Homeland Security in the Washington D.C./Northern Virginia area, get in touch!
