One Year Later, Still Here

A little over a year ago when I began this blog I was relieved to have  been hired by the U.S. Census Bureau. It was temporary but I had found myself without summer employment ( adjunct instructing) and it’s my nature to panic and not let spirit shake out the universe and reveal  the plan. So I was feeling pretty fortunate and found myself in an office of people many of whom were in the same predicament.  I was still thinking that I should be looking for the proverbial, conventional full-time job. Anyway the Census job lasted until the fall and fit nicely with the beginning of school and I was back to work. Three different schools, three different City’s, two States, four days. Still harboring the belief that I had to find “the job” I looked every Sunday at the jobs offered, looked at several websites and followed up on any leads that friends and family gave me. Well it’s summer again, the school work is back to one course and the ultimate job has not shown up. So what’s my point?

I don’t really want the “full-time job” I want to make a living on my terms. Dare I say it out loud. My Knitted Dreams blog was the beginning of my latest creative venture and truth be told using my creative talents is all I ever wanted to do. Much more to follow!

  1. Yay for you. Follow your heart and your dreams – they won’t lead you astray 😉 And, good luck~

  2. It is one of God’s greatest blessings to use your creative talents. I came upon that conclusion about five years ago. My husband called it a midlife crisis. I have been a creative person all my life, and refused to let someone stunt that aspect of my life for me. I divorced him for failure to understand; his loss, my gain.
