I haven't written much lately because I've been busy, mostly with my chorus' winter season performances. But I wanted to briefly mention a book I found on Saturday at Borders. It's Making Work Work for the Highly Sensitive Person, a book about people like me who struggle to find work environments where they can be successful without burning out or feeling as if they're not getting anywhere professionally. Among other things, the book suggests self-employment, which I've thought about but not really made any serious moves towards. I'm still applying for full-time positions. I got a call from another recruiter at Cisco representing a content delivery group a few days ago. Since there seem to be groups a least a bit interested in me, I'll probably push the job search out for a couple more months, unless something significant happens to change my mind.
