…we are looking for long term commitment

Every employer ever

I am currently applying for jobs for my next big adventure (I am more or less always looking for my next job). And there seems to be one returning phrase that keeps scaring me away; we are looking for long term commitment. The fact that it scares the hell out of me, makes me feel a bit like a cliché running from commitment.

But the thing is, I am not ready to settle down! And what is wrong with wanting my freedom. Yes, I can give you six months of my time. That seems to be the contract I can sign without having an anxiety attack, but long term…?! I just cannot give you that. And I am not saying that I would not be happy to stay, if I found the right place and the right people I tell myself that I would be happy to give up my nomadic ways, but I am not going to sign away my freedom, just to make you feel safe.

It is never fun looking for a new job, especially when it is on the other side of the planet. Which is sort of my specialty. But I think I will have it sorted soon. In the meantime, I have been hard at work. Read more about Mancía and Falanghina (I promise, they are real grape varieties). And shortly I will ad the basic philosophy of how to think when pairing wine and food.
