In which it all levels out - the life, universe, and everything
January 26, 2007

For the past 3 weeks or so, about 80% of my at-home/free time was taken up by freelance projects, one of which should be completed soon, and the rest of which will just have to be cut back. Everything has been going extremely well for me for... well, since Wednesday. And since everybody knows that once one gets at least 3 good things to happen in a day, all thought of nastiness in the past floats away on little clouds of euphoria. And not to bring anyone down, but I continually am trying to remind myself that though day may be fantastic, tomorrow may suck, and to just be prepared for it.

I am suddenly and unexpectedly employed, which happened at just the right moment in just the right way. I had gone to 2 proper interviews for positions that were below my skillset (though would pay me in the range I was making in my previous position), and had come to the conclusion that I just sucked at interviewing. Now I realize that I may suck at interviewing, but those that were interviewing me sucked, too, and I'm really quite happy I wasn't offered employment by any of those companies.

Everything good that has happened within the past 2.5 days just prove to me that my addage is correct: if you wait long enough, something perfect will come along, and that there's really no reason to settle for anything less (unless you're super poor and have to take a dishwashing job at Perkins so you can pay rent while waiting for that perfect job to come along). This goes for pretty much everything, I think, so keep it in your back pocket to chew on in the future - this time I'll give it to you for free.
