My last 2 days of freedom… then it’s back to the grind.  Or starting a new grind, I should say.   Unemployment has proven to be a pretty worthy experience.  I’ve been able to tend to many (never quite got to “all”) of the projects that the time squeeze prevented me from getting into.  It’s enabled me to be selective about my next venture; I never felt pressured to settle for something that only felt mostly right when I knew there was something on the horizon that was exactly right.  That’s not to say that I held out for some romanticized “dream job,” like the Editor-in-Chief of a fashion publication or Brad Goreski‘s replacement.  Finding a new job, especially in the times we live in, is striking the right balance between what you know about your strengths (and weaknesses), what you liked about your past jobs, the pertinent experience you have, and — realistically — where you see yourself heading.  I’m proud to report I have done the proper amount of soul searching, networking, and hustling to land a position with an A+ company doing something I am committed to succeeding in.  Like I said in a previous post, WWJW will continue but at a different pace than before.  Thanks again for remaining interested and involved!
