I'm trying to decide between two possible jobs. One is at a nonprofit, very close to home, and my responsibilities would be broader and more general than I'm accustomed to. While the idea of working for a nonprofit appeals to me, I think I might prefer to remain in my specific area of expertise. And while the interview went very well, I left feeling only fairly sure that the people liked me, as opposed to the people at the earlier interview--I'm SURE that they liked me. That job is very similar to the work I used to do. The commute is not great, although the hours are flexible.
But wait just a minute. Let me turn around and toss the horse a few carrots; I'm riding in the cart right in front of him. I haven't actually been offered either of these jobs. I'm optimistic, but I'm not counting chickens just yet.
Whence the barnyard metaphors? Am I Ross Perot all of a sudden?
