Randomly, whozatmac decides to post something on LJ, months and months nd months since his last post.|
My little baby is 5 months old now, as are the realities of parenthood. I love being a dad, I love his smile. Terry is the most beautiful thing ever to happen to me.
OTOH, being a dad makes a person think about things in different ways, planning for the future, wanting to know when the paychecks come instead of being happy freelancing and living feast or famine, working when when I want money and not working when I want free time, that's been my strategy for my 20's. My cross country adventure made any last need for money and luxury sort of dissolve into a freedom from material, but as a father material and stability are intertwined, I want to have a job, own a house, get high-class health insurance. . . so I'm trying to find a good corporate-haxor jobby.
I had a decent interview on Friday with an out of band access company that services most of the Fortune 500, but I've had a few of those before, so really I don't get my hopes rolling too much until we start signing paperwork. At least I try not too, but damn, I hope I know something soon. I continue to polish my resume and monitor my Monster account, but I'd really just rather be done with the searching, the interviewing, the hoping and worrying. . .
