A new copy day job?

I have been busy looking for a new copy day-job (unrelated to the boss-catching-my-spelling-error incident detailed earlier) and have found that this has consumed me.

Why?  I do like my current day-job.  I like the people I work with and for.  I just know it’s time in my career to move on.  And now that I’ve made the big decision, I’m antsy.  Really antsy.  Not sleeping, neglecting my friends (blogger-friends do not despair!  My real-life, know where I live friends have been complaining too.  The word ‘intervention’ was mentioned several times), neglecting my manuscript, that I love, love, LOVE, until I had a MASSIVE HEAD EXPLOSION!!!


I have been picking little bits of brain and hair off my bedroom walls and trying to piece them back together into something resembling the general shape of my head.

The job hunt continues.  An over-indulgence in gin has helped me resume sleeping, and has happily doubled as acceptable socialising with human-friends.  I am now off to reconnect with blogger-friends.

    Welcome back- I’m happy that you’re reconnecting and I agree with Bethany, “reconnection successful” 🙂
    Wow so you quit your job? Good for you if you think it was not helping you moving forward and I hope you’ll find a much better one soon- you know, before London is out of stock for gin 🙂

    Haha–well, no. I haven’t quit. I’ve just told the bosses that I am looking, and got a lovely “we really wish you well but really don’t want you to leave” sort of response.

    But I am feeling stagnant in the current role, and am thus draining London of its gin reserves (well spotted!), so yes, a change is in order!

    Start praying, thinking positive thoughts, etc. for my day-job search!
