I'm in a slightly better situation than I was last time I posted, and SUBSTANTIALLY better than most of the intervening times; new bike, steady job, NEW COMPUTER, things are improved. I might even be able to take this job (or a promotion) out of this state, which would dramatically accelerate my timetable. Not having to build up a look-for-work stake to live on means getting out of here all the sooner!
Besides, I like these people. For the first time in my work history, I believe I can honestly say there's nobody I work with that has a real problem with me. That's a VALUABLE first, I can tell you.. and shameless offerings of candy doubtless had an effect on the proceedings. Still, I'm looking forward to my three-month anniversary with this place. It should be all good, I say.
Have to go, love you all!
