When bad busy becomes good busy
Ok, I think we can all agree that looking for work is just no darn fun. I mean, all the uncertainty and insecurity, the possibility of rejection, plus all the work involved in preparing a good resume, maybe even different versions, and letters for each potential employer. Since I'm not even in the country yet, I have mostly just been scoping out various NGOs and checking the not-for-profit want ads and have only applied for a couple things I didn't think I would get anyway, just because I won't be able to fill the position soon enough, or be in the country to attend an interview. But as luck would have it, today I took a big step forward in the journey from job searching to job having. After a lengthy conversation with someone I think I will really like working with, I have gotten an assignment to do for a paper which covers organic food issues, which is the area second closest to my heart after the goal of getting people fed. But since I decided to work in an area of the world where that's not the most pressing issue, I am excited about being able to work to make sure that what people eat is healthy and safe, not just for us, but for the environment.

This means things will be a bit hectic the next few days, while I try to get this piece written in between my regular work stuff, so hopefully you'll forgive me for not having a slipper picture today. If it's any consolation, I decided a button just wasn't enough and that I will have to make a couple crochet flowers to put on them, as long as I can remember how - I haven't crocheted anything in a dog's age! Wish me luck!
