In the meantime, I have a phone interview on Wednesday. I wouldn't really need a background check, I don't think, since Highmark should have all my paperwork already from having worked at United Concordia. I'd rather do that anyway. But the Medicare job is still on the table with a start date of July 23.
I met a fiddler who was busking at the market yesterday, much like the protagonist of my werewolf novel, so I had to at least stay and chat and drop some cash in her bucket. She encouraged me to pick up the violin again.
I want to. But it becomes more clear to me that I can't quite do it right now. Oh I tell myself I'm going to, sometimes I even try, but there's something impeding the whole process and I think it's the urgency I feel towards my writing career. Right now taking up the violin feels like another incomplete endeavour to add to a whole list of unreached goals. Until I accomplish something on the writing front it, anything else will just bog me down.
