Anything someone will pay me to do! Actually, though, I’m looking to find a job in publishing here… and failing that, just anything that will pay the bills while I do some schooling at night for a few months. We have enough cash in the bank right now that work isn’t absolutely necessary quite yet, but I hate to see the account balance drop knowing that nothing is coming IN at the moment!
Oh, and for Coldie and Prima (and everyone else) a brief run-down of the events of the past couple of months:
My teaching contract in Korea finished as of Feb. 28 (relevant thread here), and Astrogirl and I began making preparations for Escape From Korea 2003. The Fiancee visa application was filed last summer (not early enough as it turns out), so we shipped all of my crap to the states, and waited patiently for her visa to come through.
The visa had not yet come through as of a few weeks ago, so Astrogirl is still in Korea, while I came ahead to the US to begin reconnecting to life here. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been living on my best friend’s couch and drinking his beer while step-by-step getting things done… IE: opening a bank account, getting a valid CA driver’s license, buying a car, getting insurance, finding an apartment, arranging for phone, internet, and electricity services, beginning my search for a job (the original topic of this thread), etc. ad nauseum.
Whew! It’s been hell!
So here I am in San Diego. I’ll be moving into a new apartment tomorrow, so I have a lot of shopping to do! I have to hit the Goodwill store hard, as Astrogirl has refused me permission to actually decorate all by myself (just recently she OK’d me to wipe my chin alone, but that’s another story…). I have to fill the basic furnishing necessities with cheap stuff that she can throw away when she gets here so she can buy matching duvet covers, coasters, doilies and what-not… Women!
The latest news on the Fiancee visa is that I had failed, somehow, to establish that I was a US citizen, and therefore entitled to actually FILE for a US Fiancee visa!:smack: Hopefully that has been straightened out now. Until then, Astrogirl is waiting in Korea…
Anyways, the stuff I shipped from Korea is supposed to be delivered here later this morning, so I have to load up the new car with boxes and haul them over to my new apartment. Then I’m off to buy a bed! And a TV! Um… and some other stuff, too. I have a list here somewhere…
