So i just had it pointed out to me that i'm in a very nice place in life right now, where I have a decent job, but the perfect excuse to leave it with two weeks' notice, I'm about to go month-to-month on my apartment for $50/mo extra, at least for May, and ... well, I'm about as free as I've ever been or ever will be. Even this campaign manager gig is only until mid-May, then I can go off to wherever.

And my top priority lately has been finding something to tie me down one place or another... Spiffing up my resume to find a job that holds me more tightly, looking at housing listings, pining for some sort of girlfriend.

What is it with me and freedom? I think I just didn't stop to think about it enough to appreciate it, not really...

In other news, the wireless earpiece for my cell phone is pretty cool, but it could be a little more uncomfortable, and a little less staticky. But what do I want for nothin'? A rubber biscuit?

I need people to look at my resume. Email me if you're willing to help. The most recent section seriously needs help; I can't wrap my mind around a decent way to word it.

Freedom is good, but meaning is better. I will assert that meaningful attachment is more inherently valuable to our human lives. "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose," baby. :-)

Freedom is an adventure, or at least gives you different opportunities for adventures. But don't feel like you're doing something wrong/ill-advised by looking for things that will impinge on it.

The freedom to find something better is a good thing. But that's only because "something better" is a good thing. Having something better, choosing something better, may limit your freedom to choose something *else*, but the goal (at least, my goal) is getting those things that you want, rather than having slots open and waiting for things to come along.

I admit to bias in this. I have a job that I (usually) love. I have a husband that I (pretty much always) love. I know I have the freedom to quit my job and do something else, but I feel no desire to do so at the moment. I did swear a vow that I wouldn't quit my husband and find someone else, but why would I want to?

It's all very well to shop around, but you don't want to spend forever shopping, or you have no time left to appreciate what you found.
