JOB!

So, I, uh, have a job.

!!!

This makes me so happy. I will be high for days. Scott is breaking out the bottles of champagne as we speak.

Yesterday I had an interview with the assistant dean of the law school. She told me she'd get back to me in a week. The manager called me this morning before noon. During my lunch hour I started filling out paperwork with human resources. I am currently staring in belief at a packet labeled "Staff Benefits". Jordan assures me that he will read it drunk in about an hour.

The only downside to this job is that I have to quit the one I have now. Which I feel bad about. My boss has enough to do now with two people short. She gets into bad moods whenever I have an interview. I'm waiting until it's necessary to tell her.

I then had to go out to dinner with my cousin, who was a complete jerk. I understand that he wasn't feeling well. So he should have called it off. Instead we went out. And I didn't expect him to give me congrats. But I didn't think he's be an ass and tell me how much he thinks my position sucks.

I unfortunately have nothing more to add. Especially now when I'm being handed my second glass of bubbly. I'm sorry I haven't commented much. I'm so exhausted when I get home. But I will be relaxing much this weekend. I'll probably finish Eldest. If you've read Eragon, know that Eldest is just as good. And I have a few letters to write. Ahh, I love weekends.

He's a special little one, isn't he?

I'll be an admin assistant in a new building. What's kind of nice is that my manager is about two blocks away. I'll be helping out the law professors and legal writers in my building. And ha I get a student assistant. Good times. I can understand the pressure you feel. How is it going thus far?

I have assignments to write training documents on things I haven't been trained on. They kind of threw me into everything. but I hope I manage well and they consider me worthy of a raise for all the stress!

Many thanks. He can be a little... unkind and unthoughtful every once in a while, but he's terribly unhappy most of the time, and he is my cousin, after all.

That's the same problem I have. I felt really awful about quitting my current job, but this new one is just so much more exciting and actually has to do with my major so I couldn't really turn it down in good conscience. I feel awful though, because they're understaffed as it is and it's going to put so much more extra stress on the day supervisor who is completely over-worked as it is. I told them I'd come in on Sundays to help out, though, and that seemed to make it less bad.

That's an interesting situation. I suppose I might be able to work on Saturdays, I suppose, since we are closed on Sundays. It won't be much, because we are only open for four hours, and we don't have many customers. I don't think it would be much consolation, but I could offer it, I suppose.

Yay, congrats! Hey, as much as you feel bad, won't you be glad to get away from your moody boss? And your cousin...pfft, how rude!

I'm so glad to hear this about Eldest! I heard some bad reviews about it, but now I'm gonna go out get it from the library ^_^
