Another deadline …

AAahhhh!  As you may know, I have been a stay at home mom (with some work at home when my two jobs need me) for 7 1/2 years now and as IM will be starting full time school next year I will be able to look for a full time job.  However, this hinges on BR’s project finally finishing sometime in the Fall, for a Christmas release.  Whenever I find a great job I get so frustrated that I can’t apply until the Fall (and sometimes I make the mistake of applying because I get very overzealous and can’t take the job) that I almost can’t stand it!

Today there was an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about how the Silicon Valley is in a growth cycle, and there are lots of jobs, and then I find a very almost perfect job at Etsy that I am so frustrated I can’t apply for!  Of course it is based in Brooklyn, but they have a San Francisco office, and maybe they would let me do it there?

My perfect job would be in an Internet radio, music, podcasting or television company, but hey, I am a crafter and Etsy is right up my alley.  I cannot wait until Fall!

    That’s so hard when you’ve got all this potential energy bottled up inside, and it’s not time to release it yet!

    Maybe by the time you can work full time Etsy will have the perfect job in the San Francisco office.

    Meanwhile, I prescribe lots of obsessive knitting to take your mind off things. 🙂

    Hmm, can you talk to Etsy about alternative work options until fall?? If they love you and you love them – I bet they’d be willing to make it work. Worth a shot?

    How exciting that you can start thinking about going back to work! I’ve got a couple more years until I can think about it. I know there will be the perfect job for you.

    My perfect job consists of not working at all and having enormous monthly sums deposited into my bank account. Alas, that’s proving elusive.

    you know, Carrie is on the right track! I wish I had that job too. Wow, to work at Etsy would be huge. Are you still going to apply and ask about the SF office??

    Good luck! It’s so much easier when you’re doing something you love.
