One of my favourite blogs, Why Girls are Weird, does a weekly series she calls 'currently' where by using the following headings she writes about what's news. Today, I'm stealing it. Also, my second article is up on the Green Steve blog, I'd love it if you'd pop over, check it out and say hi.
Thinking about: Decisions. On Tuesday I had a job interview for a pretty amazing job and opportunity. However, I'm afraid if I'm offered the job the decision of whether to take it or not will completely overwhelm me. It is an amazing opportunity, however it's only a 4 month job, I'd be unemployed again in October, it will not provide ANY work/life balance. Only all work all the time. And there is the possibility that I'd have to cancel my trip planned for going home in July. On the flipside, I'd be working for amazing people, on causes that I really care about, using social media to make a difference.
Feeling: Anxious. I recently watched a West Wing episode where the Pres is freaking out because he can't see how it would end if he sent troops to retaliate for the killing of Americans in the Middle East. That's kind of how I feel, except you know, no one is going to die from my decisions (I hope). I hate making a decision unless I can see how it will all end, how will I feel, how is this going to work out? If I can't answer those questions, I just obsess over the decision. It's not healthy.
Watching: Inspector Climate and I are still watching West Wing together, we're in the sixth season. Yesterday, I wasn't feeling that well so I also watched some movies like High Fidelity (one of my favourite movies of all time).
Reading: I'm currently reading two books: The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn is what I'm reading aloud to Inspector Climate. And then I just started, Nothing Daunted by Dorothy Wickenden.
Looking forward to: I really am ready to go home. After about 8 months of not being on the same continent as my family, I get desperately homesick. So I'm ready for July (we also just planned a short trip to Tassie and I'm so excited because we're going to drive down to the town that I hope we'll someday live in (even though neither Inspector Climate or I have ever been there, yet!)
Making me happy: Despite how anxious I am over the job decision, I'm happy and relieved that I got an interview, it's been months and I was started to get really discouraged.
