Stay…just a little bit longer

I got a job. 🙂

Can you believe it? Although to be fair, it’s totally, completely different from what I wanted when I moved here. It is not related to publishing whatsoever, but it will pay a lot more (enough so that once I get going, I may even be earning enough to live anywhere I want in NYC in a year’s time!), and it will also buy me time to see if I ever will be able to get into publishing. As one of my friends reminds me, it’s not a means to an end, it’s TRIAGE!

At the same time though, I think I’ll acquire a lot of new skills, and I know that whatever I end up doing later they’ll come in handy. Maybe I’ll even be an entrepreneur, and be my own boss completely somewhere down the line.

Either way, I’m happy I will get to stay in New York. My time here isn’t up! I still have so much I want to do! Like Shakespeare in the Park! (Which I’m gonna try to go to on Tuesday, or maybe next Saturday…)

I am sad about leaving the bookstore, but since they moved me to the music and DVD department, I’m slightly less nostalgic about it. Still, it must be noted now that I met such a great group of people there and I am sad I won’t be able to see them all the time anymore (and get paid for it!). Still, whoever is a real friend will still be my friend when I’m not there, and I will still visit the store (and all the books! Oh, how I miss the books…).

Who knows what opportunities this new job may bring? 🙂
