Staying Busy

I’ve completed the onboarding process (salary negotiations, drug/background test, references, etc) with my newest job, and I guess I’ll start sometime in July. It pays 24% more than my regular job, which is a pretty sweet deal. My schedule should look something like this when everything gets situated (it’s a little messy, but it works…

Something need doing?

I’m really grateful to have a job and be able to fall into the routine of work, but in the past 7 months, it’s been a struggle to maintain a balance between work and health. As the opportunities arise, I often agree to take on additional hours at my per diem (on call/as needed) job,…

The Process

Because having a log of how things played out is always a good idea. So now that 99% of things are complete, where I’m just waiting for my license number to post, I’ve started the job hunt. Or, I put out feelers in the first week of October, and followed up with them after I…
