I've recently been a bit stir-crazy. I don't know what it is. Maybe I'm anxious about the move into a new library at work, or maybe it's the same ol' dissatisfaction with my job. I can't tell you what it is, but it's got a hold of me. I thought a little change would help, so I did what I always do when I feel the need for change. I chopped off all my hair. I have a cute little pixie cut that doesn't quite look right on me, but I like it anyway. And now I'm going a little further...
I applied for jobs in Tacoma, WA, Aurora, CO and at Bowling Green State University. The job at Bowling Green is actually pretty cool. It's in the music library and sound recordings archive. I just like the idea of going to work where there are thousands of lp's, 8-tracks, cassettes and cd's at my disposal. But the downfall to all this job hunting is the fact that I can't actually afford to move out of the dorms. I have one more year to pay on my braces and finish paying off my credit cards, then I'm home free, but can I last another year?
So there's this job in Wellington, New Zealand. Does anyone know if $39000 is a decent salary in NZ?
