My closest supervisor has been promoted to a new job within the hospital, and I couldn't be happier for her. She is qualified, thoughtful, and a workhorse. It will be a pleasure to have her in upper management. Unfortunately, that means she will no longer be my direct supervisor. That position is OPEN.
Do I apply? The pay, I hear, is not spectacular. About 50 cents to a dollar more per hour. But this is probably less about the pay, than it is the experience. However; I didn't go to school to work in management. Is this the experience I really want? And does it line up with my future goals? I can still work from home in this position, too, although I would be required to drive in every now and then. Maybe once a week. Not an awful thing.
I have been applying for every coding position that pops up, and I have been denied every time. I can't even get an interview. The manager of coding is no longer responding to my emails. I'm not sure what to think about that; back in February, they wanted me in their department. Now I can't get a peep out of them. My mind is whirling with thoughts, weighing every pro and con until really, all I have is a headache and no further answers. I do this every time a milestone comes up in my life. I overthink everything!
Bucket's 13th birthday was yesterday. My camera is not working (!!!) and so I got no pictures of him on his birthday, which really made me sad. He had a good birthday. I worked all day. Such is life.
