The Final Word

Well, as of November 15, 2010, I will no longer be among the ranks of the unemployed.

Yes, Yellowcat, THAT good news.

After two years – well, 23 months – of struggle, doubt, worry, fear and anxiety, I got the sh!tty commute job down in the city. You know, the one which will cost me three hours of my life every day? That one.

Oh, it’s all right. It’s only for a few months. In the meantime, I hope and pray the permanent job comes through. I’ve spoken to the recruiter and told him if it does, I WILL be resigning, no matter when it happens. I’ll be professional about advanced notice, but I’m gunning for a full-time job and if there’s a chance, I’ll do it.

Today at 10 a.m. I’ll be finalizing with my new contracting firm and I begin work at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, November 15. Pray for my immortal soul. It’s probably gained too much weight to do it for itself.

Thank you to all who prayed and cared during this tough time. It’s been tough, but maybe, just maybe, it’s over now. At least for a bit.

  1. Good news! Here’s hoping you get that permanent job, but in the meantime, maybe you can use the commute to some up with some story ideas.

    Oh, that’d be nice!

    Good luck!

    Thank you so much. 🙂

  2. Yay! Happy news, despite a 3-hour commute. Yes, hoping you do get the permanent job.

    Definitely hoping for that. Definitely.

    23 months is a long time to stress over economic life. Happy there’s a respite from that for you.

    Yes, it IS a long time. A VERY long time.

    Best of luck!

    Thank you!

  3. Wow, what wonderful news! You’ll do great, walking and commuting and everything. Like you said, it’s only for a few months. Enough to keep you going while you wait for that permanent job to come through. Good for you, sweetie.

    No walking. Not now. Too cold. But it’s work. Meh. We’ll see how it works out. Thanks.

  4. Hey man, congrats!!! And if it gets to be a struggle, just remember, it’s a paycheck and it’s somewhat temporary. One day at a time. I’m so happy for you!

    It will be a struggle, for sure. Getting up at 4:30 a.m. has no merits. But it’s nice to have the weekly check, for sure. And it should be a good check, too. Thanks for the support. 🙂

  5. Sorry about the commute. But very very happy for you otherwise, D. Many times while I’ve been visiting here, this post’s title might have been very alarming — great to see it being put to use this way, instead. 🙂

    HA! Didn’t mean to scare ya, JES, and thanks for all the support you’ve given me. You’ve provided the connection to the only non-governmental income source I’ve had for the last couple of years. I really appreciate it.

  6. That’s awesome! Hope the other job pulls through for you soon >.> that commute sounds like a pain!

    It IS a pain, but only for a few months. 🙂 Less of a pain if I’d lose about 80 pounds too. 😦 Thank you!

  7. That is great news. Sure, the commute sounds awful, but employment is good for the body and for the soul. Good luck!

    I don’t know about soul, but it’s easier on the mind for sure. Thanks!

    • Well, some jobs are not good for the soul, certainly. And there are a lot of factors in what makes a job good and a lot things that contribute to the soul, but I still think that most people need to feel there is a place to go, a task to do, a paycheck earned for the family’s well-being…yeah, that stuff is good for you.

      I agree, it is good for most. I get that sensation surprisingly easy from doing only the most minor of things. 😉

  8. That is so awesome! And – it’s a lot easier to get a job if you already have a job. Or so I’ve heard. Good luck with the first day, and the next step: finding something permanent, without a grueling commute!

    Thank you! Here’s hoping!

  9. Oooh such good news, but now I’ve read ahead, and such good impending news, too! 🙂 I can’t wait to hear how it all works out! At least the interview is before you’re scheduled to start at the long commute job. Maybe you’ll have a response before and that will make things simpler.

    That would be awesome. AWESOME.

    Oh hurray! 🙂

    Thanks! 🙂
