Okay, so I thought it was hard to go back to work with Harry Potter unfinished on my nightstand at home? Nothing, however, could have prepared me for what it is like to go back to corporate drudgery after reading about a roguish band of witches and wizards fighting against the dark lord himself!
Seriously, I want to go to Hogwarts.
Which is to say, I want to be doing something meaningful with my life. I want to help people. I want my job to be something that I feel good about, something that is an extension of who I am. Corporate culture is NOT an extension of who I am. It is merely a way of paying the bills. I want to do something that I care about, maybe even something I would be willing to die for. Is this asking too much? And is there really anything left out there worth dying for?
Kai, Corvus and I were talking last night and we were thinking that if I need to start looking for a new job (which it seems I am going to need to do, judging by how awful things are getting around here–you and I should really have a good long chat this weekend if at all possible), it doesn’t make sense for me to look here. What would be the point? Maybe, just maybe, we might need to considering moving the move up. We’re still futzing with finances and all that, and it would depend on the job situation, but a spring time transcoastal migration is not out of the question.
