I have both an urge to keep applying to jobs, and just quitting...

But well, today got an email from a Michigan nature center I sent an application to for another job a couple months ago...

They hired someone else for that one, but they attached a description for a part-time job teaching programs. Why not? Now I have an interview!

One hour commute from here, or move closer since I don't currently have a vehicle, lol.

There is often never a rhyme or a reason to what eventuates in life ... so my thoughts for you, are to keep applying without expectation ... what will be, will be. The only certainty is that IF you find youself employed, then it will be they, who are wishing they’d found you sooner.

If you can, maybe go for it. Sometimes one thing leads to another.

Good luck!

.. interesting you mention that .

i briefly knew a girl . every month different job .. n pretty apparent on her facebook too . nothing to do with her character because clearly she was a nice girl . maybe just not acknowledging or getting help with her ASD . she thinks it's just depression . i can see it clearly .

must be a fidget or quick exit mechanism if things don't go as expected .

saying that .. it could be linked to periodic burnout . ive been a few jobs for approx 4 months then felt the need to leave abruptly .

wishing you the best of luck 8)

A one-hour commute with a car, or by public transportation?

If it's like 3 miles away, you might able to just walk there.

One hour by car, it's in the next county over.

Don't put the cart before the horse. Angnix doesn't have an offer yet. When she does, she'll figure out what has to be done.
