The End of the Tunnel... Or the Post with lots of Ellipses

When I finished college--it was 2002--post 9/11 and the world was not ready for a slew of new college graduates....

When I finished grad school--I found a nice teaching position--but it was just before the big ol' crash--you know... 2007.... Fun times.

So... long story short... despite all of my glorious experiences and lovely jobs from here to, well, there...

I have never had a salaried position...

Until now.

(and the clouds were parted and the sun did shine down and all the little duckies sang with joy!)

I got a job! And I have real benefits! And I make monies!

I am so excited to make a budget and pay my bills and go to the gym with my company paid for gym pass and visit the dentist with my dental coverage and and and and....

I am humbled, grateful, and really excited to get to work.

It's a nice job as a recruiter for a firm that matches physicians with hospitals and vice versa.

My goal is to maintain balance and to make sure I take care of myself so I can be the best employee possible.

I am so happy. I am so happy to be employed here in Salt Lake City. I love this town. So... life is particularly joyful right now.

Thanks for bearing with me through the more depressing posts. Y'all are peachy keen.

Yay! Nothing like a good job to take the stress from lack of money away. :)
