Today was the exact opposite to yesterday! In fact it was amazing to the point that I am still in disbelief.
Hindsight is 20/20 and I am talking about a job offer.
A 45 minute phone call later concluded basically with an offer and with me suggesting that we meet.
It will also include some sacrifice because it’s a job that might be 40 hours a week (though should be 32) which means decisions may have to be made about other things because there will be much less time in a week to write and do other things BUT… my financial stress would be relieved and that’s huge. I’d be back to salary which means vacation would be paid AND I’d have my weekends back.
I put on the brakes because we didn’t talk about money and I need a confirmation of the actually number of hours. The practice has just changed over and joined a call group which means that it should actually close on Wednesday and Friday afternoons which is where I get 32 hours a week. A few wrinkles to iron out as you can now tell so I had to hit the pause button and suggest that we meet and she’s excited about showing me around the office.
It certainly was better news than I’ve had in a while.
So, with this, I will keep you posted as it unfolds… I will meet with her on Thursday afternoon and, honestly, I can’t wait.
I’m going to try to settle my mind so I can sleep in a bit and do some editing which I wanted to spend way more time on today than I got the chance to.
