word up dawgs!
This is Officially the End of crying, moaning, bitching, complaining, and general malaise.
I am Gainfully Employed by Brainworks Studios! doing design work! for a children's book publishing firm!
it feels like a dream. I randomly called employers on monday, got a positive response from one, dropped off my resume on tuesday, got called wednesday morning, had an interview wednesday afternoon, and boo-yah! bagged it this morning. the office is super-sweet, the place does all the concepting, writing, and editing of the books, and they pay isn't half-bad either.
hugs hugs hugs. and as soon as I get my first paycheck, you're all invited to my rapper booze party.
o the difference a day makes. this morning I found my tax refund check while going through old papers, so I have $65 dollars of fun money for this weekend. later I was still feeling kind of mopey so I washed the dishes and listened to the Rome Mix, a CD of stuff we listened to last fall semester, like tenacious d and saturday night live skits and The Best Song Ever Made, St. Elmos Fire. So I was laughing and singing, and I thought I heard my phone ring. When I picked it up and checked the messages, there was the job offer.
and I now formally apologize for any times in the past few months when I was whiny, moody, mean, or grumpy.
okay enough of this! more celebrating now!
love, a very relieved katie
