Time to revisit my 2019 plans to see how things are going so far. With the year already 1/3 finished, I want to keep track of my thoughts before I lose them to time.

My final semester is half over. Just 7 more weeks to go before graduation. I've been applying for some jobs already. Waiting until graduation to apply is poor timing since that's when all the other grads will be applying also. Also, the best time to look for a job is when you already have one. This allows me to be more selective with my applications. I've found just 2 job postings that appealed to me and I didn't get an interview for either one.

I'm really in no rush but I do have a few timing concerns. The first is that to take a job abroad would have to occur in the next 3-5 months while Lefty could still make the trip. He'll be 9 next month and I worry that an international move would be too stressful for a senior dog.

Also, I promised myself a new vehicle when I graduate. I've been driving my current car for 20 years and life is too short to drive just 1 car. Of course, if my career plans take me abroad, then a new car isn't needed at all. To buy the car is to admit that I won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

So once again I find myself in a holding pattern. Not certain if I'm going to land or fly to parts unknown. I check the job listing nearly every day. My HR person is well aware of my intentions so I don't feel guilty at all for looking.

From my past history, I should just assume the status quo but dreams can't wait forever.
