I just had an interview for a part time position at my local library yesterday. I’m going to tentatively say that it went well, I don’t want to jinx the whole thing. After the interview, I ended up at the local regional museum, just so I could get out for a bit. I love museums to bits! Was really interesting to learn about the local history in my area and how the area came to be what it is today. I also ended up buying a cow shopping bag from the museum, just to add to my ever growing collection of cows 🙂
Anyway, after a bit of thought with the whole unemployment thing and the way the state and federal budget is going, I set myself a goal for a Super Secret Kristine Project to keep myself busy while looking for more work plus who knows, this might evolve into something and take on a life of its own. I’m hoping anyway.
Not giving out any details, but starting to project has gotten me motivated to blog more & to throw myself into this new goal. As an Occupational Therapist by trade, having no occupation at the moment is really throwing me off kilter. When I went to the optometrist the other day to get my eyes tested, the optometrist asked what I do for a living & it was a bit awkward to explain my situation. I didn’t want to say unemployed, so I used my fallback strategy of what I used to do & now I’m looking for other work. Beating around the bush isn’t exactly my thing, so it threw me a bit. This kind of is how the idea of the project started. I’ve had ideas in my head for a while, but no real push or drive to get things done. No time better than now, right?
Anyway, I thought I’d write that down somewhere so that I can look back & see the exact day I decided to take my future into my own hands & do something about it. Wish me luck!
