The Future

Filed under: Job Search,Personal — by teofilo @ 10:26 pm

Thinking it over, I really don’t think I’m going to move next week.  I’m mostly just feeling frustrated about several aspects of my life right now, and moving away wouldn’t necessarily solve any of my problems.  I figure the best thing to do is probably to stick with my current plan, which is roughly this:

  • Now through May or June: Stay in Albuquerque, at this job and in this apartment (switching to month-to-month when my lease expires at the end of February). I’m going to be traveling a bit in late April, which should be a welcome break, and then my dad’s unveiling is Memorial Day, so it would make sense to stick around here at least until then.
  • Mid-June through late July: The GSD Career Discovery program, assuming I get accepted.  This really seems like the best thing for me to do career-wise at this point, and my mom has offered to pay for it, so I see no reason not to do it.
  • Late July through early August: Birthright.  This seems like the best time to fit this in.
  • Mid-August through summer 2009: I’m not yet sure what to do at this point.  I’ll probably get a job, preferably somewhere other than Albuquerque, for at least part of the time.  An SCA internship might be a cool thing to do as well for a while.  In any case, I will most likely be applying to grad schools during this time as well.
  • Fall 2009: Start grad school.

So that’s the tentative plan, and I think it’ll probably work out pretty well.  It’ll give me a chance to do a variety of things that I’d like to do at some point but probably won’t have time for once I get started on a real career.



  1. This sounds like a fun plan, though Chicago seems to have dropped out of the running… I can only assume this week’s weather forecast played a role.

  2. That sounds like a plan. Although I was thinking you meant this SCA for a bit, which would be even more awesome.

  3. Ha. Becks and I had the same thought. (It did seem a little incongruous for what I know of you.)
