Now that I've been home for a month and a half, my life is dramatically less interesting than it was a year ago. I'm enjoying the activities I've sorely missed, most especially poring in the library and spending half a day, if not most of it, reveling in the available literature.
I'm not going to lie, I'm going stir-crazy with the lack of a structured regimen to my days. While reading, running, and cooking are noble activities, I'm ready for some good work. However, trying to break into the non-profit business is really tough, and with the backdrop of last year's massive lay-offs reducing my chances from little to none, job hunting can be really discouraging.
My hope right now is to get exposure into the nonprofit business of global development, especially ones that emphasize and support grassroots movement. That might be distant yet, but hopefully, these aspirations achieve fruition.
For the moment, I've embarked on a writing project. If you're interested in tuning in, feel free to visit methinkprettyoneday.tumblr.com
