Take a Penny, Leave a Penny!

Close to three years ago, karnythia hosted an LJ post where she asked people to leave a comment if they had something they wanted or needed, or if they had something they were willing to give or offer.

I got two things: yarn and friends.

This is how I met rosefox, who has since become one of the people in my life whom I value most.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about that and what a big impact it had on my life over the past three years. And it made me want to do it for other people.

Quoting karnythia's post from all those years ago:

What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you have?

Feel free to answer any or all of them. They do not need to be realistic things (I put world peace on mine last time) If you don't have a LiveJournal, or would prefer to answer anonymously, give us a way to contact you.

Feel free to share this on LJ, DW, and other social media if you like.

What do you want?
A better handle on my sanity, since my therapy had to end when my job did.

What do you need?
A job I can live with (Boston-area, T-accessible; I can't drive)
Health Insurance.

What do you have?

Homemade postcards and the willingness to send them.
A love of cooking and discussing same.
... probably other things if I can think of them.

What sort(s) of job are you looking for?

Admin Assistant/Office Management, ideally in academia or for a nonprofit.

Have you searched for policies on ehealthinsurance.com? I like them because I can enter my information once and see a bunch of quotes from various companies at varying coverage levels. I found my dental policy through them because I didn't like the work offerings and it's been working out pretty well for the past few years.

That's a really useful link, thank you!

Wait, were you ineligible for MassHealth? Also, the several months of temp job requalifies you to apply for unemployment.

... I haven't gotten the MassHealth application done yet. And my hours fluctuated above and below the cutoff for unemployment.

I am kind of a mess, roommate.

I love you, roommate, it'll happen.
