Happy Dance!!!!

So, I got another part time job today. I am very excited about it. It's at my local library, where I formally volunteered. I have worked at a library in the past, so I know what it entails. Like I said, it's part time, but I love all my part time jobs. I wish I could just have a whole bunch of part times, but then I'd have to continue to pay my own health insurance and there's no set retirement plan. I did a little happy dance when I got home today.
But, I am kinda reluctant to tell Kevin and my parents because they're so pushing me to find a full-time job and adding another part-time to my schedule means I'll most likely have to drop one if I find a full-time and/or schedule around. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to schedule around. They're all about me finding a career, which I totally get, but at this time with the economy and the fact I have no idea what I want to do with my life, it's a little tough. Now, I know that people are saying that the economy's getting better, but with what I've found (or not found as the case may be) lately with the economy, I think it's better to say yes to something now, even if it is another part-time than wait until I find a full time.
Now, I asked my dad to chat with him when I got off work tonight because I have to fill out some tax forms and something about if something happens to me, who do I want my stuff to go to. I was kinda thinking about that tonight. I really don't have anything to my name, I don't have a spouse, I do have a boyfriend that I'm totally in love with, but it's not like we're engaged or anything, and if for some reason we don't get engaged or married.... I don't have a house or any property to my name, so I can't say to leave it to my estate. The only thing I really have to my name is my art and my guinea pig. I'm guessing by the time something happens to me, my pig will be dead (hopefully, meaning nothing will happen to me anytime soon), and what can I leave to my art? So, that leaves my parents, which I don't really have a problem with, I just, I don't know.
Anywho, I'm heading home from one job. I can always put off talking to dad until tomorrow night as I don't start at this job until Thurs morning. We'll see.

I think you're right about saying yes to the part time job. You can still look for a full time job while you work a bunch of part time jobs, and it's always nice to have extra money. You can always quite later if you find a full time job, just be careful you don't get burnt out.

Congrats on the new job! I think part time jobs are ok when you're not sure what you want to do full time. They give you an opportunity to try different jobs, and there's nothing wrong with that. Go for it.
