I had an interview last week, and a second interview yesterday. It’s for a general manager position at a theater/dance space (actually, dance with some theater and performance art) in Brooklyn.

There is so much potential there, in that all my issues with the job seem to be on the road to being non-issues. It’s part-time (4 days a week) but they want to make it full-time within 6 months. No benefits, but it’s a possibility within 6 months. Low pay, but as the responsibilities and time commitment increase, more money. So much potential to do cool work with young artists, and to develop new programs, and to learn how to do a lot of important things.

I lay in bed last night just totally paralyzed with fear. Can I live on so little money? Can I get another part-time job? Can I get out of debt and pay for health insurance?

But really, my fear is that I am making the wrong choice and that by compromising what I need from a job, I will be making myself really unhappy. Then again, working is a good thing. I want to work. I need to work, for any amount of money.

I need Mexican food.
