My sister got a new job and leaving the job she’s been working at since 2011. She has a great relationship with the owner of the bakery. They’ve been on good terms since the beginning and until the end. As you know, I’ve been looking for a job and miserably failing. The thing is, I’ve never wanted to work with food so I’ve never applied in the food industry at all. I know that I can’t deal with the heat, the stress, and my unsanitary tendencies- ie licking my fingers especially when it deals with sweets- just don’t match well. Even at home, despite my enjoyment of cooking and baking, I’m constantly having to check myself but because it’s family, I don’t feel too bad. My sister’s offering me the job she’s leaving. The money and experience are very enticing. Not only that, I’d feel so much better helping my mom around, financially that is. Yet, despite this urge to say yes to the job being handed to me after all the rejections I’ve had the entire year, I’m seriously questioning if I should. Maybe when I started job searching and this came up, I would’ve said yes immediately. Or maybe not. I know myself enough to be sure that I don’t do well with food. I don’t do well with heat. It’s an anger trigger. I know I’m listing more cons than pros but it’s a lot like when I debated dropping out. Dropping out? Woah. I’ve never seen me leaving school as dropping out but it’s been a year since I stopped and I haven’t gone back. So, even though I have dreams of getting a degree, I guess, I have to call it that. Anyway, this job question is like the school question. Money is important but I know that in my heart, money isn’t a drive for me. It would be nice to have it but what am I compromising?
