Have Trigger, Will Travel

Made it through twelve days.  Have the whole weekend to unwind and blow off some steam.  Hooray!

So, it's not unknown that I'm looking for a new job.  I mean, I bitch about it constantly, so hey, you guys know.  The search isn't proving as fruitful, but I'm going to start a passive one soon.  My Alma mater offers a website for students and alumni to post resumes on that employers look over.  Gonna get that set up, so hopefully, they'll be coming to me.

The thing is, that I've found a couple of jobs that look promising.  But, the kicker is that they're halfway across the country.  They seem like good jobs, things I'd be happy doing, but in places I know little about, and other than a fear of failure and rejection, my greatest fear is fear of the unknown.  I'm debating taking the dive, because the way I figure it, if I have no leads here, I might as well look elsewhere.  But I think about all I would leave behind.  Alone, into the unknown.  Fucking terrifying.  But I won't know if I don't try.


  1. Well it depends on what you have going on for you where you are. Do you think you need a new start? If you do need one, then I would suggest taking that plunge. But, if things are good for you where you are, then I say stay there. Well done on living through those 12 days.

  2. Im sick and tired of my job as well. I've been out of school for a year and half and have yet to use my degree either. Hopefully this will be the year though. Good luck.
