ok - the last post in this section that i made really inspired some things -

i kept on feeling like i was on the verge of getting somewhere -

but i would get derailed - even though I am close -

i just need to think in terms of
sort of the practical steps and that is where

i would get stuck -

my thoughts would vaporize -

i couldnt decide what or where I wanted to work

--

whatever -

like i started thinking how

my nerves totally affected this too -

i think i was looking in - towards the conceivable new job -

and thinking it had to be some destiny fulfillment - (is this oprah's fault? jk sorry oprah)

.....tic toc tic toc -

I have to admit - there is no perfect - job

I will committ to a job - and have the realisitic

'spectation Lucy - that it is just a jiz-ob

i will learn some things -

i will do good work

but i will not set myself up for

anxious self delusion -

work has to be satisfying - but i can't expect it to 'make my life' at least first off -! lol

so i am trying to chill a bit - and just say - yeah i can do that - for a couple of years -

yeah - why the firken not!

there could be some fun stuff - and most likely not so fun -

but i'll take a chance if they will too -

Mark,

You are in a new city and country, and I guess there is a lot to think about and organize. I would try to handle it in just managable steps and not worry that you can't sort everything out immediately. Who can do all that at once?

Your attitude towards a job is spot on I think. Something to pay the bills and satisfy you for the time being is great. That will give you some time to look around and discover other possibilities, or maybe even develop in this one.

Take care,
Larry

I agree with Larry. No need to put any extra pressure on yourself.

There's enough pressure just getting up in the morning, no sense in adding more in trying to figuring everything out. I like the one step at a time suggestion.

Good luck, Mark,

David
