Nailed a few interviews this week, and job prospects are looking good! I'll most likely be returning to the kind of stuff I've been doing day-job-wise: auditing for a financial institution of some kind. And now things are...getting a bit picky when it comes to deciding.
The thing I'm debating is that I'm looking at two jobs I've been feeling pretty good about, based on how the interview went. Both involve the same nature of banking work for pretty much the same good pay. One is in San Francisco, where my family lives. It'd be in downtown SF and well within reach of all there is to do in San Fran...having grown up there I really love the area, the weather, and the fact that there are so many fun places to visit and things to do. The only downside is living expenses...OUCH.
The other job opportunity is in Texas, namely the Dallas area. Pretty much halfway across the country from my folks...but real estate is AWESOMELY priced ($100000 gets you a palace of a condo/apartment in Dallas, whereas good luck finding even a closet for that much in SF), and from what I've heard Dallas is just as big and has just as much going on as San Francisco does when it comes to fun things to do. Weather is pretty hot from what I've heard...but I've braved many a triple-degree day in Nevada and imagine Texas weather will be easy enough to tough out.
So...being close to family or flying the nest. I'm crossing my fingers that an offer comes through, but whichever job I land, I'll be thankful as HECK to be employed, and I'll make it work no matter which way I go since I can't go wrong with either. In the meantime, my phone is glued to my hand, my body is ready, and my fingers are crossed.
As for an art update, I'm working on a Celestia/Luna Chibi pic! It's been a fun one to work on since I haven't done any Princess stuff in a while, or at least I have less art of them in my gallery than I probably should.
Stay tuned, and as always thanks for reading.
