I've been on the road for the last two weeks and have been focusing on work and grad school. I'd like to say my focus has been successful on both counts; to make that utterance might be stretching the truth a wee bit too much. But all is good.
Last week, I received the nix from the final -- of three -- face-to-face interviews. When I shared the news at church yesterday with a few folks during coffee hour, they were happy about the situation -- as has been some folks in the OD arena here at my current employment: perhaps I'll stick around. Perhaps. While I'm still looking and still very interested in getting back into independent schools, I'm also not desperate; this move isn't the be-all and end-all. With a slight shift to doing a little more conflict resolution and work with dysfunctional groups, I think I'd find new challenges to keep me engaged for years more to come. To move, I need to find the right community and the right job; all grass is not greener.
