I have a lot of wishes for 2017. I have a lot of hopes. I want more hikes and travel. I want to not be scared as PEOTUS takes office. I want my book club to actually happen and my play to have the house filled. I want more commissions and maybe a hair routine that works.
But my big wish for 2017: a job.
I finish grad school in June and while I was gifted two years to focus on my writing, those two years are coming to a close and it's time to get my shit together. I want to find a job that allows me the freedom to write regularly. Id love to write full time but I know that's not realistic. I'd like a job that gives me health insurance and one that doesn't leave me spent at the end of the day so I can write for an hour or two. I'd like a job that allows me to be creative and preferably work with kids. Or I'd like a job that allows me to support my fellow writers. I'd like a job that doesn't feel like the antithesis to wellness.
So I'm putting it out there. If y'all hear anything let me know.
