I just got offered a new job two hours ago, to be a processor in an office that just opened this month. They have no processors there, and wanted to know if I start tommorrow. I said yes, however, I don't want to move there. I don't want to leave NY, especially the place I set my heart on moving to in the future.
I am afraid that once I move there, I will never find another place similar to the place I found last summer. I don't want to live there, because it puts me further away from my dream, but I need the job. So I have to go tommorrow anyway, and start working, because it's an offer I can't pass up. Something is better than nothing, job-wise.
However, for my home life, I DON'T want to live there. I like being close to NY, my dream lake home, instead. I don't want to move to Philadelphia, I DON'T want to be there. It puts me so much further away from my dream. Not that where I am now is great, but at least I felt closer to attaining my dream here, instead of over there, where I am actually *further* away from it over there.
I like the idea of the new job, but I DON'T like the idea of having to live someplace that puts me very very very very very far away from my dream. But in a slow job market, what can you do? You can't think about that. But, it's hard not to when it's right in front of your face.
GOD, I was hoping they had an opening somewhere closer to my dream. Why can't I ever get something that brings me closer, instead of further, to attaining my dream for a change?
