Last week, I had been kvetching to my friend Jerami about not being sure if I wanted to remain at my job past my review in October, but needlessly already feeling anxiety over something that may or may not happen in four months time (longer, really, b/c even if I leave, my boss and I have agreed I would give him three more months to find a replacement).
So much of my life in Israel right now is tied up in this job. Who am I if I’m not that? And even though we established that I don’t have to worry about it right now – how will I find something else? I mean – duh, I’ll use the English job websites, but still was worrying about this, too.
Anyway, Jerami talked a lot about social life and networking. Not formal, wear-your-nametag networking, but getting out and meeting א List Gays and shiz like dat. Israel is a small country, she reminded me. It’s very easy to become a big fish in a small pond here.
Hmm,… Me, a Big Fish. I like it. Maybe I’ll become a freelance PR consultant and either help big companies get top tier U.S. press, or help smaller, artier, webbier, cooler , live eventier Israeli companies get the right press here in Israel. But for that, I’ll need better Hebrew (working on this).
