My manager told me to apply for her job today. And she was serious!

I'm really not sure.

On the one hand, I don't feel qualified enough for it (although I fit the basic recommendations for the job). On the other, it doubles my salary.

On the one hand, I've been told that it will help me learn patience. On the other, I have no patience to begin with!

On the one hand, I'll probably have no social life if I get the job. On the other, I don't have much of a social life right now!

On the one hand, I'd be taking on a lot of responsibilities regarding privacy, work policies and procedures, legal healthcare issues, and the department's budgetary issues. On the other, no more need to deal with the tough coding and charging issues that I hate about my job.

On the one hand, if I apply and don't get the job I still gain interviewing experience. On the other, I get the friggin' job! Ack!!

On the one hand, managerial jobs are the leading cause of alcohol consumption and heart failure*. On the other, I don't drink and I'm not sure about my family history regarding heart-health is all that great.

On the one hand, it's a great opportunity and Moses Lake is small enough that it would be a good place to start. On the other... the previous statement is true.


She threw out the "Where do you want to be in the next 5 years?" question at me, which I hate because if you know me at all it's that I don't like planning that far ahead. Plus, I didn't think of "In a movie theater watching The Empire Strikes Back in 3D!" fast enough.


*Probably not true.
