Two more done, more to go


Two professional jobs in Ottawa applied for.

Another cover letter is already in the works

and more to start.

*

The balance between rest

(this is a quiet space in my life)

and that I need a job and don't want to

run out of money again

is a constant struggle for me.

*

It must be in God's plan and for a reason.

I remember when I was unemployed for a summer

and after that ended I started going

to the Orthodox church,

decided to become a librarian,

became a catachumen

and then moved home

and then moved back to Canada for library school

and then to Ottawa

and then back to library school...

and then to Ottawa where I still am today.

All in the space of three years;

4 churches in two years;

lived in 6.5 places in three years,

two countries,

four cities.

*

It was a tad overwhelming;

though in my earlier twenties I used to live in three places a year

and fly six times a year;

West Coast-Michigan-New England.

*

Someday I would love to go to Romania


(not to mention tons of monasteries!)

but meanwhile,

it would be nice to either be given the winnings of a lottery ticket

(since I don't play myself)

or a job.

I'll take the job :)

*

Blessed weekend everyone!

Ha! Ha! Ha! How our family can relate right now. My husband recently lost his job. . .crazy story. Anyway, thanks for checking in on me! I check in on you and a few other bloggers, but rarely comment because I can never think of anything brilliant to say!!!! I'm glad you left me a little note, though. Prayers for jobs. . .
