Today has turned into one of those days that makes me think that "anywhere else" is a valid option right now (albeit with a continued eye on and progress toward any long-term goals). Busy busy, want want, need need, gottahaveit, don'tlikeyouranswer, and on and on. They are crawling out of the woodwork, and it makes me want to hide. The oil and gas position wouldn't require phone time or proactive calls, and that would make me very happy indeed, and would significantly reduce my stress level.
Forget more education, maybe I can just write a blockbuster novel like Grisham. *SIGH* I might try writing, just for grins. The worst it can do is suck, right? My biggest questions are 1) can I come up with a story, and 2) can I *tell* a story?
And maybe more education *isn't* what I need. Maybe I just need to find a job that actually uses my law degree and that's a better fit for me. From what I've seen, most library positions pay less than or just about what I make now. Of course, law librarians are faculty, and I have no idea what kind of salary they pull in. Probably more than your average librarian, or at least I'd think so. I may ask the career services director at the law school if she could give me some information on that, just in general terms.
On a related but tangential note, Johnson County needs a prosecutor. Sounds about like what I did for Ellis County, and it's about the same commute as what I'm making now (only with less traffic - I could probably get to Cleburne faster than I can get to downtown Dallas). Can't hurt to apply, although the low end of the salary range isn't great.
(Meno, I'm chasing my tail, running all the way to the ends of the earth. Quit laughing.)
