kid - i want to go back inside RIGHT NOW

Gearing up for the ol' job search again...

Well, back to the job application grindstone.

While it looks like I'll still have RHA when I get back to San Jose, it sounds like my hours will be reduced down to alternating weekends, which is really minimal.  Like, 8-12 hours a week?  Sounds like trouble.  Thankfully, my health insurance will still be covered by the company so I won't be entirely dependent on Seanie for lifestyle funding.

But I've got to find a job.

I've been applying to pretty much any museum job that I can remotely qualify for - location doesn't matter.  I've applied for positions in Colorado, Utah, Southern California, and even cities out on the East Coast.  If it's in a museum and it deals with curatorial or collections management, I'm interested.

Of course, my preference would be to find something in the Bay Area.  I really do miss living in California, where the weather's warmer and the climate doesn't make my skin peel like an onion and my family and friends are all nearby.  But I don't see a lot of jobs popping up in the museum field, so I think that if I don't locate something before I get home I'm going to have to open up the search to include pretty much anything full time with benefits.
