I got some news today… I almost peed. I had that interview, I was panicking (ask anyone who spoke with me since yesterday)… but I got it. I GOT IT!! Not bad for someone with virtually no congruent experience, but lots of tangential, peripheral and scholastic background to the position. My hands are shaking and I’m just dazzled. Gawds. Permanent job. Work-from-home with not-infrequent work-site visits (paid mileage) as well as them paying for part of my cellphone bill.
I will still do my best to contribute posts to this blog and work in my garage… with the ironic twist that I can not afford some new toys (to supplement the goodies my father gave me Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, more on that in a future post), but now I Can actually start DOING Things 😀
