On one hand, I need money and health insurance would be nice. On the other hand, I feel like I'm cheating myself and my art by going back to working a "day job". And I'm not willing (yet) to take just any job. I need it to be a good fit for me. I need the culture of the place to be thriving and uplifting. I'm not afraid of hard work as long as it's not in a stifling negative environment. In my first interview I asked a lot of questions about the company and culture. The answers sounded good. That coupled with the information on their website seems positive. They have two positions available. One full time and one part time. I would love the part time position if the pay etc. works out.
I've worked a lot of years at jobs that made me miserable a lot of the time. I feel like this is my chance to finally do what I want, when I want. But is this realistic. Am I really willing to live in a van if it means not working at a job I dislike? I want art to be only second to my loved ones and pets. Not a job that isn't fulfilling. Life is too short to continue to do things that make us miserable.
Am I crazy to post this info on a public blog, where any potential employers can see? Maybe. But they should know who I am. What I stand for and why. If I take a job I will do it to my best ability. And if I'm not happy there I will look at why and do all I can to change it. All I'm asking for a is a good fit. For me and the company.
