Wow this really was two years ago... Update time!
I am still living with the parents unfortunately, but this is the year I move out! (Crowd cheers in background.) Rewrites and setbacks meant I didn't finish grad school until this past summer. However, living at home allowed me to work seasonally and take winters off to write. I am extremely grateful to my parents for putting up with me this long, and although Mom keeps hinting I should just stay (forever, she said only joking a little), this is definitely the year I grow up and become an "adult." Only 15 months until I'm 30 you know (shudder shudder).
The past few years my employment has been all over the place. Some jobs have been directly applicable to my field but short-lived, while the wonderful world of retail is always happy to oblige, with a nice low salary that doesn't quite cover my car payment, health insurance and other bills. I don't know what hiring offices think of my resume but I've gotten a few interviews the last few months. Some are close to home, some a few hours away where I could get my feet wet and stay in one place for 2-4 years before re-evaluating. One is a big-shot, big city job I'm terrified they'll offer me and I'll have to move half a coast away, but at the same time it's exciting to think about.
Well that's me these days. The next three months or so could mean major changes or I could stall out again. Stay tuned!
