Apples and oranges.

I'm regularly told that I have one of the best jobs in the world. I'm not trying to brag. I'm just sharing what comes back my direction. And, while I don't disagree or agree necessarily when folks say that, it is a pretty good one. There are plenty of reasons to stick around. I've seen a lot of the world in the past few years and I've met some pretty amazing individuals. I've been able to write for a living and be pretty creative with how my words come out and get presented. Add that all up and it makes for a pretty nice stew of tasty goodness. I'm not even sure how I'd make it better if I could (though three work-from-home days a week sounds right nice).

But, truth be told, it's not the best job in the world. It's just not. That job was recently created, though. Go click on that link thing and get really, really jealous. Go on. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want the job, cause I do. I honestly do.

Not surprisingly, the link to apply has been down all morning. I'm just spitballin' here, but there may be a little competition for this one.

Hmmm, dunno that I agree. Seems a bit lonely. I mean tropical paradise does sound fab and all, but you're friends and fam most likely can't afford to come visit. And what about dating or missing your current someone? I guess maybe for six months you can do it, but it wouldn't be the ideal job for me.

The link is still down. It sounds dreamy to me . . . relaxation and adventure.

That's just one less person I have to beat to get to the final round of applicants. Thanks!

I guess I don't look at this as putting your life on hold, necessarily (friends and lovers and such). It's a way of enhancing what you have and adding new experiences to it. Life is to be lived and, man, what a way to do it.

You should go for it. I would consider it, and it sounds like a blast but it would be a challenge taking that much of a pay cut. hehe
