Hump Day

...in more ways than one.

As soon as I finish my paper tomorrow (later today, really), I will be half done with my master's.

Wow.

It's one of those feelings where it seems the semester has flown by, yet dragged on for-freaking-ever. To be honest, I'm exhausted.

I think I've found the career for me, which is a relief. With the other jobs and fields I've been in, I found it interesting but not something I wanted to do for years to come. This isn't to say my anxiety about what I'm going to do after graduation is any lower. At all.

I had an interview this morning for an internship for the spring semester, and I was asked what I wanted out of my career as a science writer. I said that I loved being able to talk to interesting people about interesting things. Which is all very true, but really? I want a paycheck and health insurance.

Seriously.

And enough leftover to keep myself supplied in beads. Though my Etsy sales have been decent enough to self-sustain in terms of supplies.




Which brings me to a second point: I am only $10 short of reaching my $100 goal for the Gold Fork Project fundraiser for the National Eating Disorders Association. The necklaces are $20 each, and half of that money goes directly to NEDA.

Not that I'm dropping any subtle hints here. Not me. Nope nope nope.
My eyes are gradually sliding shut.
'Night.

Congratulations!!!!!!!!

As for post grad: Everyone wants a paycheck and health insurance - that's totally expected. If you said otherwise, an employer would think you're lying. I think the question is beyond those things, what do you want...

BTW - I'm going to go look at your etsy shop now...

Faith,

Right now, I'm going to stick with the basics. I think part of the problem is that I don't really know what I want. No public information roles- yuck!

Thanks for checking out my stuff!
