Queasy

I just applied for three jobs, online. Two are part-time online teaching positions, and one is a full- or part- time internship (“full-time, 20-40 hours/week” is what the description said) at a publishing company. I might apply for more jobs tomorrow, if I find any promising postings.

I feel very strange. I have never formally applied for jobs like this before, and I’m not sure how happy I will be if I get them. I’ll be glad for the validation, but right now all I really want to do is rest and have a summer.

I almost had this as a public entry, but then I realized that I’ll have to be more careful what’s public from now on, if I want to have a real-world job. This is so bizarre I don’t even know what to do with myself.

  1. Thank you

    I realized last night that I should have allowed myself some “vacation” time after school ended: a few weeks when I could feel no pressure and no guilt to get anything done, and just rest and breathe for a while. I’ve been puttering around and not doing very much, but I’ve still felt like I should be doing things, like writing or drawing more, finishing up some obligations, etc. So I’m giving myself next week for that. If any of the jobs call back, then I’ll have to act on that, but otherwise I’m just going to take it easy and not worry about how much I’m doing.

    I’m glad to hear working part-time jobs was a good experience for you, though you must have been very tired at the time! It’s part-time jobs I’m looking for, because I do want to have time to work on my own projects as well, and I think if I started with full-time I’d be too exhausted for that. We shall see!
