One thing about me that is…hmmm…fucked up, is that I am a workaholic. I do GREAT under pressure. I honestly, only struggle with my mental faculties when I have little to do. Well, this past week to week-and-a-half has been incredibly busy. I have traveled from Colorado to Wyoming 4 times in the past 5 days. That’s easily 1,000 miles I have wracked-up. I have a lot of things going on, and haven’t had much time to really think. I used to value thinking, but over the past few years, my thinking has taken a turn for the worse. Today, I’m feeling a sense of excitement, a sense of hope, and a sense of nervousness.
As you are aware, I had a major decision to make last week. Well, I settled on Decision 4. Honestly, I don’t mind traveling, for work, but I also like being able to work at a home office, as well. So, I turned down the job I mentioned in that post. By Monday, however, I had been invited to two more interviews with two different companies. Yesterday, I interviewed with one. Unfortunately, the company wanted to pay me “$12-$14 per hour to start with maybe a promotion and raise after two years” – needless to say, this was not a viable option. When I was driving to Wyoming last night, I received an email from another company asking me for a phone interview. It is for a new company that is developing a technology for the textile industry that uses a gas we can find in the atmosphere and turning it to liquid, instead of using water, to clean industrial scale textiles. It is a Colorado based company and will involve 50-75% travel. But, it also looks like I will be home much more often than the previous job offer I turned down.
Also, I have been trying to keep myself positive on a few other fronts. For example, this bitch is down 3 pounds in the past week! WOOOOHOOO. I’m doing a little dance and a twirl, so there! Okay, I just had to throw that in. Maybe I can get back to some regularly scheduled blogging soon and drop some more deep stuff.
