It’s always good to have a Plan B. I thought I’d write about ours.
Right now, I’m working at the hospital, applying for relevant jobs, doing sewing stuff, working on the blog, etc. If this goes well, it’ll be a new career of sorts. But I’m very aware that it might not work out. So we have a backup plan.
Our backup plan is that I do what I did in August when I couldn’t find a full-time job. I’ll go to a placement agency. I already have a relationship with one and there’s another I might apply with. And then I’ll see what happens.
Of course, I’ll explore other options first and do some job hunting on my own. I might even contact my boss at the old job and see if they have an opening. But if nothing else I’ll go to the old standby.
I probably remind myself of the backup plan 2 or 3 times a day, since work is still pretty scarce and I get nervous. It’s just the first week, and December is a no-hassle month. We have plenty of savings and my goal is just to keep looking for things and doing the best I can and it’s fine.
Micah’s very encouraging through all this–he has great faith in me as a writer, sewer, editor, anything I want to be. He says he married me to participate with my fulfilling all my potential. And because I’m cute.
