Wait, let me give that the font size it deserves...

I GOT A JOB!

I start Monday Oct 30th at the department of Family & Consumer Sciences at Michigan State University. Almost six years to the day after I left (in one of the worst examples of poor timing in history). The job is grant based, so it'll be renewed a year at a time, but I intend to make myself so utterly indespensable that they'll find a way to keep me. My office will be just upstairs from the MSU Dairy Store, so I'll have to work on the old willpower to only go down for ice cream once or twice a week.

The pay rate is decent, it's full time and my benefits will start in November. I couldn't be happier. Lori, the office manager who will be my boss, stressed that they chose me because of my vibrant, entertaining personality (as opposed to instead of it). I find that a particularly encouraging sign.

So... I'm off to go do my awkward but enthusiastic happy dance.

I've got a job!

note: the use of "fucking" in between hoo and ray should not be interpreted as dismissive! the use of the expletive is joyous!

And since I'll be working just upstairs from the Dairy Store, it means... MORE FOOD PORN! Chocolate Cheese! Exotic flavors of ice cream! (We'll get you back somehow...)

Re: YAY!
Feel free to borrow my luck! It only took six years, after all... hmmm... maybe you want to borrow from someone whose luck is faster.

Congrats, I'm very nearly desperate for a full-time job with benefits, right now. Homelessness is looking more and more likely.

I was staring down bankrupcy, which I'm sure contributed to my stress level. Hoping for you.
