As I was walking to work this morning, fighting off the panic attack of "OMG! My contract ends in March! And I Really Shouldn't Have Listened to that NPR Story about Foreclosed Homes! And GAH! I Could Be Out of Work in 6 Months! But, I Still Want to Buy that Super Cute Pair of Shoes I Saw in DSW!," I began thinking of jobs I would like to do ... or at least skill sets I possess that I could apply to a new job.
This is what I came up with during the 15 minute walk:
-teaching ... not necessarily in a classroom setting (and, god forbid, never again in a public school)
-explaining complex ideas in an understandable way
-coming up with creative learning tools
-writing [I think I'm purty good at it]
-thorough understanding of international and domestic environmental issues
-know the Toxic Substances Control Act like the back of my hand (which is *so* very very sad)
Now, the questions are how to best package this and what kind of jobs I should look for. Any ideas? Anyone? Anyone?
Completely unrelated update, but have I mentioned recently how much I *heart* Madeleine Albright?
