Just putting this out there...

It's a new year. On nyd I woke up with this song in my head, along with a slight headache. I started to think about all the possibilities of 2014 and my remaining time in London (officially 9 months but who's counting). I started thinking of the places I want to travel to, the things I want to do in the city and then I started thinking of my current funds--or lack there of. As it is, I don't think I can do all I want to do and still afford to stick around for the whole time. What do you sacrifice time or experience?

I'm not going down without a fight, my mama brought me up right! So I can either accept this fate or change my situation. I've long given up the dilution of getting sponsorship or marrying a knight in shinning armour (the fantasy is still strong, mind you) so my only option is to change my income aka get a new job or some other kind of earner. The job market is a tough one right now and I know I can't get something here in my trained field (can you say, 'career break'?), but making more than what I currently make would be the next best thing. So I'm putting it out there to the Universe, get me a new job! It's all about the contacts. 

My transferable skills:
Research queen
Administration proficient
Managerial bad ass
Attention to detail hawk
Organization goddess 
Writing superstar (examples provided here, unless you aren't a fan, then it's just a first draft...)
Computer and social media diva

Life skills
Telling aprox time within 5 min
Shuffling cards so they make that phutttttttttttttttt noise
Petting dogs
Excellent tea maker
Enjoyable companion on long car rides
Oddly great at telling dad jokes 

But don't take my word for it. LinkedIn link




(this is what is called tongue-in-cheek, unless you are serious, then so am I)
