Take my job... please!

I say that I want to continue in school so that I will have lots of skills and therefore the freedom to drastically change careers whenever I want. And yet, I've suddenly realized, once I get a job, I don't think I will even leave it. Maybe I subconsciously realized this and that's why I haven't seriously looked for a Real Job yet - I'm afraid of picking the thing that I'll do for The Rest Of My Life. I am too nice or too weak to ever let my employer down by leaving, or too lazy to ever look for a new job in the first place. Me voici, stuck here. Me voila, stuck in a future job. I have so much to look forward to.

Never feel sorry for employers. They don't feel sorry for you when your salary doesn't extend as far it should. You could be a professional student, somehow becoming part of the fixtures and fittings of the university to such an extent that they pay you for it.

It's not employers you end up feeling sorry for... it's supervisors, and other people who have to take up your slack. Anyway, I'm just whining. I know I'm not going to look for another job until the end of the summer.

I get the same feeling... I just found out that our clinic director is leaving at the end of the year. It makes me feel guilty about leaving for an archives job or for grad school...
