And searching for a job is really cutting into the amount of time I can devote to full time unemployment. No one's going to just hand the job to you. It's never just drinks, or just lunch, or just an interview. This is politics. You have to lay the ground work. There's the people you need to meet and the people who need a to be asked to call the people you need to meet. And you always have to round back, the loop always needs to be closed.
But then, I've known this is the way it works from the beginning. This is the reality of the life I choose to lead. I mean really, it's not as if I thought I could just coast my way to DNC Chair for God's sake!
