Job Interview

I am job hunting <---- hate it! I had an interview today for an actual writing job, writing for the in-house newsletter for this big company where I already work but my job is being relocated and ends in June. It was a totally normal interview (Thank God). No questions like, "If you were a vegetable, what kind of vegetable would you be?" (I don't know, what kind of vegetable do you think that I look like?) Just normal questions like . . . "Have you ever had a job where you had to write under pressure?" And I said, "only this one that I'm in now, where I have to finish my blog posting before my boss comes around." Just kidding! Didn't say that. Think it went okay. Will let you know. I am actually kind of scared to get a job that pays well enough that I would have options that I don't want to think about (like separating and all of that). This job would be kind of in-between -- a more than I'm making now, but not as much as he's making kind of thing. Fairly safe. My therapist thinks that I am scared to death of separation - physical and psychic (which is known as individuation in psycho-babble). Whatever.

I think that she is right. I hate that.

Overall 'hello' rather than a response to any particular entry. abadchristian sent me over here. I can't imagine how upside down and mixed up your world has been the last couple years. I really appreciate your honesty.

Do you self-edit now that you know your husband might read? My husband reads my blog, but if I don't say the 'right' thing about him (no slant in my favor, no abbreviating the circumstances), we have to have a long discussion. Sigh. I end up not writing much about our relationship. Which is what's most interesting, and good about what you've started here. Don't stop!

Hi Bea,
I've taken to just sharing with my husband everything I say and write - as much as I can. I found that sharing everything has really enhanced our relationship. He may see something that I've written to a friend and have a comment or questions about it, and it leads to another heart to heart discussion. Exhausting, but healthy.

I really try not to self-edit these posts, but it is probably impossible not to.

Actually, for me it is easier for me to say things here that I want to, but am reluctant to say. Like cocoa-bean says, it is "exhausting, but healthy".
