The Jig is Up

I’ve had an amazing five months, been to some beautiful places, and seen some amazing things, but for better or worse the jig is up. I’m moving back to New York city next month.

I am ambivalent about the move. On one hand, it will be great to back in a city I know and love, but on the other I will miss the itinerant lifestyle. Also, while I’m excited by the prospect of finding a new job and working on new projects (somewhere besides my kitchen table), I’m going to miss the luxury of waking up whenever my body tells me to to do some writing.
What all this boils down to is that my last few weeks in Playa del Carmen will be spent job hunting– never the most fun task. I crawl through the job boards, craft up cover letters, and then send them off with little expectation of hearing back. I’m off to the job boards now in fact. At least hiring seems to be on the upswing and I have had a pretty encouraging response from the past week of applying. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

  1. Good luck, Linnea! You have what it takes & I am sure that there is something exciting just around the corner for you. But on the other hand, I am sure that you will miss your vagabond ways & I will miss hearing about them.

  2. Yes, it’s fantastic! Such great energy and so much to see and do!

    Thanks. The suspense is certainly exciting enough for the moment. : )

    I can’t believe it’s been so long myself! You know, I really only meant to go away for three months…and now it will have stretched into 6 by the time I get back.

  3. I ve been following your blog while you were 5 months welcome back to the greatest city on the planet. Looking forward to following your take on the local scene again.
