YAY! I got the job I've been interviewing for, for months! It's part-time, it's contract, and that's actually all fine by me. I'm a little nervous, because I'm going back into a field I thought I left for good, but it turns out, I actually want to do it now. 90% of the problems I had stemmed out of my untreated illness and emotional dysfunction, and I feel like I have a really good grip on that these days.
I'm really excited to do work I genuinely like, and get PAID for it. I'm going to work my ass off, do the best job I can, and hope that's enough. Now if I can only stop coughing up a pot roast every 20 minutes.
