News from beyond

Some surprising and exciting news! The phone rang yesterday morning before 9 - hah, needless to say I was sound asleep. The number looked like the future employer that I have been so hoping to work for. Remember that interview I had?

Well, they called a couple days ago, wanting another reference. To be quite honest, I had thought they were not interested in me. But when I listened to my message, (yikes! roaming) she offered me the job! Yes, I got the job! I cannot even tell you how excited I was, am! I have waited a year for a social work job. I have been waiting forever for one.

I jumped up and down and screamed, and then...I realized that when I get back from vacation I am going to have to quit my current job. This actually saddens me because everyone there is like a tight knit group of family or friends. And my friend, the one I have mentioned in the past two posts, works there as well and I will no longer get to see her every day. Or make fun of people every day. Hah.

I know that my boss, the owner, has no clue whatsoever that I am thinking of leaving. The last time I mentioned it was when my manager was being a real Satanic whore and he said that I was just emotional and was probably "on my period." Yeah, he's that kind of guy. Either way, I am going to have to break the news to him when I return and this is not that fun of a thing to think about when I am on vacation.

I am super excited though! This job is going to kick butt - tuition reimbursement (to get my master's!), paid vacations, benefits after one month, and flexible hours. Yes, basically a normal job. But the job I have now is a small company that is just starting to offer insurance. They do not have paid vacations, or tuition reimbursement. The sad part about that is though - the job I have now was going to pay for my insurance entirely.

The excitement of the new job has not worn off entirely though - I am still out of my freakin' mind excited for this and all the possibilities that lay ahead. I am finally in my field. I am finally doing what I have longed to do.

So that is my post from Florida. :) Exciting news on vacation!

Congratulations! That's really exciting. Sometimes, just the change of scene with a new job can be so healthy...shake your head right out of a bad place...
