I’m movin’ to San Francisco, baby.
I spent several maddening, decision-oriented days going back and forth and back and forth and rationalizing staying and rationalizing leaving aaaand my brain tied itself in many knots. But after a few days of hyperventilating at the idea of picking up and moving 3,000 miles, I realized – why the hell not?
Your twenties are the time that you can kinda just… go. And do something totally different.
And my momma’s out there, along with the rest of my crazypants / wonderful family.
And my mom and dad lived out there for many many decades, and she still knows lots of people in the area… sooooo hello, Networking. I’m Marty’s incredibly charming daughter. Nice to meet you. A job, you say? Why yes, I AM in the market!
And so many good friends out there.
AND I love San Francisco.
So there are plenty of good reasons behind it. But all those said – it’s still sort of a leap of faith. I don’t have a job lined up. I don’t know where I’m going to live yet. I just had a gut feeling that it was time for a … I don’t know, a shake-up of sorts. And after the panic phase simmered, I started getting super excited.
So, seem reasonable to everybody? Yes? Great.
My prediction is that the following two months will be a little bonkers… with three part-time jobs, lots of packing, and seeing all mah buddies so much that when I’m finally out of here they’ll go, “Thank GOD, I thought she’d never leave. Like seriously, WHY was she sleeping on our couch for the last six days if her lease isn't up for three weeks?”
OOOH, good news though! I JUST got an email with a totally exciting job opportunity from one “Coral Gilreath.” Ready?
Good Morning. [it’s 10:30 PM]
Don't miss superb career opportunity. [I would never miss superb career opportunity.]
The Firm [sounds legit to me!] is seeking for [close enough] self-motivated worker in United States to help us spread out our business in the North America area. [Seems like a reasonable goal. The North America area isn’t too hard to cover.]
Free instruction possible. [Like… in anything I want?]
Admirable profit ability. [Thank god. I only accept jobs with admirable profit ability, so I’m glad we covered that.]
- 18+ age [Hey, that’s me!]
- Only basic knowledge of Internet & computer. [I have a blog, I can work a keyb oard oKayllksgjin0??;]
- 2-3 free hours per day [Wait, does that mean I’ll be working 21-22 hours?]
Those who are interested must be fair and commerce motivated. Working only some hours per day. [Now that’s just uncanny. I’ve ALWAYS said that the best way to describe me is commerce motivated.]
Everyone living in the United States can be our representative. [Well jeez, Coral, now I don’t feel so special.]
Thank you for your attention. [You’re welcome.]
I think I’ve found my calling. …In what, exactly, I couldn’t say. But I have a good feeling about it, don’t you?
