Job search update: I accepted a job at the York Daily Record in York, Pa. I’ll be working as a business lifestyle reporter, which basically means reporting on the way people spend, save and earn. It sounds like a really cool position and I’m excited about it.
My mom is freaking out about the salary. She’s told me she has had about three panic attacks about my not being able to pay off things like student loans and rent and car insurance and cell phone bills and everything. And the fact that I’m not going to be making that much money has led to many a tense moment between us as of late.
I mean yes the money will most certainly be tight and I’m definitely worried about it too, but I don’t know maybe I’m just in denial for now because I’m glad to have a job and I get to enjoy the last bit of my last semester.
Now I get the fun task of looking at apartments and trying to find someone to live in my CP apartment.
I’ve also checked out the running clubs in the York area. I figure it’s a good way to meet people and learn where it is and isn’t safe to run in the area.
I’m kind of all out of sorts about everything because it seems like it happened so fast. But it’s exciting and fun.
And now I’m off to tidy up the apartment because potential subleasers are coming to visit tomorrow.
