As some of you may know, I have been job hunting all summer. Now, I have worked NON-STOP since I was 18, and you would think I deserved a break, but the last four months of being "out of work" have been maddening. Not just the loss of income, I frankly don't know what to do with myself! In addition, I fall into that scary catagory of 50-something age women with resumes as long as your arm trying to find a "last act" to their career life, but up against a multitude of young competition. I'm not out to set the world on fire...I've done that once or twice already...but, I did have a certain criteria for this job search that I hoped to attain.
1. Be of service, utilizing my lifetime of experience and skill set to serve my community and neighbors.
2. Be happy, I enjoy my time in the workplace, it must be filled with positive, happy people.
3. Make just enough money to supplement my much pared down lifestyle here in Lafayette.
I hope my Lafayette friends and neighbors will come visit me at the gallery and join me in supporting our Louisiana craftsmen and artisans. In fact, I encourage all of my blog readers to take time to support the arts in their hometown.
