I have never in my life been so inspired to find the job of my dreams.
I would love to say that it’s the New York air providing this burst of inspiration but honestly it’s mostly due to the undreamlike temp job I am currently doing. Its seems like a great company with a nach for what they are doing but my repetitive data-entry position is rather dull.
Ok Ok I get it. It’s not permanent, it pays and the dull process is actually a very helpful and necessary job for this large company. All this however doesn’t negate the fact that it’s not why I moved to The Big Apple. I want my dreams to come true and I want to have my mind blown. Baby steps they say. And I am taking those steps even if they are in high heels thank you very much!
At least I can thank these jobs for giving me motivation to go after what I want for a career.
But it’s the weekend so hooray for that. The first weekend living in this metropolis and I cannot wait to explore (and apply for jobs–I did say I was inspired after all).
Already last night I enjoyed a ramen dinner with an old friend at Momofuku. There are so many great restaurants and bars to try…just need to land that job to pay for it all 🙂
Then today I hit the streets of Brooklyn as I did another tourist run. This time I took a different (and longer) route which led me all the way through downtown Brooklyn, ending at the Brooklyn Bridge. I enjoyed seeing another side of this borough as the area I live in is a bit…dodgy we shall say. Cannot wait to explore the boutiques and cafés in and around the downtown area!
