    Holy Shit - I got a Job!

    6. goddamn. months....


    For 6 goddamn months, I've been throwing my resume at everything. In total, 68 different companies. Not a single call back.

    Flash to this week, my sis texts me that her husband (working in wireless), is in need of 4-5 people for a team.

    Resumes sent (mine and girlffriend), two calls later, we have onboarding emails/paperwork.


    Start on 7/20. Job is in KC, but we can work remote (one of the two "wishes" we asked for). It's a slight pay cut from what we were making before, but far more than the $0 we're getting now.


    Best part of all of this, I don't have to piss away the equity from my house for every day living (meaning, I can pack it away for something more appropriate, like a house, perhaps).

    Chuffed is an understatement.

    Haven't worked in an office in over 5 years and we weren't real thrilled about moving (not that we wouldn't, but it'd be a pain in the ass right now)

    We have some time left on our lease, thus the "pain in the ass" part. Not sure how much longer we're going to be here though. It's "meh" to say the least.

    While I would have no problem heading back north, it's a hard sale with her, because she's not been in a proper winter for 20+ years. I've only been removed from it for 3 winters, and it doesn't bother me.

    There's plenty I miss from Chicago/area...

    There's definitely more to do there anyway.

    ...and yes, I quit at quitting.
