Case in point: while slightly coincidence I am looking to find a new full-time job this year. I spent a year and a half working at a company that I loathed. It made me miserable. I made some absolutley wonderful friends that I have been able to keep (mostly), but other than that the year and a half were wasted by me sitting at a desk doing something that I hated. It had nothing to do with my career goals and I basically spun my wheels.

What I want to do is be a film director. I am currently a director, but I am not paid for what I do. My previous job was nothing but a road block.

So I quit, and now I am working to actually find a job somewhere in line with my career goals. Though basically that could be a receptionist at a production company and I would be way closer than my other job put me. On top of this, I just want a job that won't make me miserable. I'd actually like to go there every day. Shocking concept huh.

It's just happenstance that my job search will probably pay off in the new year. God has a funny way of doing things and I just need to follow along.

What can I say? I'm praying for positive change int he New Year, not some crummy surface-resolution that I can't keep.
