I’m taking a break from this little blog of mine.
While I do love writing and sharing my stories with you here, it is a major time commitment which I need a reprieve from for a little while.
My job situation, which I don’t talk about much on my blog, is kind of funky. I’m currently temping at my dream company, but temp salary < real salary (with benefits), so I have to use the extra time that I currently pour into blogging and redirect it toward some freelancing gigs (some creative, some not) that will help pay my bills until I can secure my dream permanent job with my dream company.
I hate hustling. It’s exhausting. And yet, in the years I’ve been in the workforce since graduating from college I have yet to have a single year where I file just one W-2. Go figure.
I like the normalcy and security of having just one job which covers my costs of living, entertainment, and, obviously, my (highly expensive) running addiction. But rather than take a job I don’t want (I’ve already kissed a lot of frogs in this regard), I’ve decided to be patient and wait for the right job to come along at a place where I’ve already built relationships and invested time and energy establishing myself as a solid candidate, and which has a corporate culture that jives with me on a personal level (we’re talking social responsibility and sustainability… in short, they’re a bunch of a tree-hugging hippies who have an aptitude for business and fashion, just like me).
It’s just a matter of time until their budget drops and resources open up.
Until then, I can be found on Instagram (@sofashrunable) posting about my upcoming runDisney experiences, half marathon training, running outfits, cross training, winter, my cat, trail walking, and perhaps even a bit about my freelancing stuff. We’ll see. 🙂
