So! How're you?
...
That's nice. I have news to share, so hush.
Yesterday I gave notice at work.
Things there had gotten increasingly frustrating since the new company took over (not their fault, just how things go) and I was really starting to dread getting out of bed in the morning. chillguru was the one bright spot in my days there, and I'm seriously going to go into withdrawal once I don't work with him any more. *sigh* (I'm also worried he's going to kill me in my sleep.)
That aside, the new position sounds super-duper awesome. Sys Admin at a small children's book publisher that's about a 5 minute walk from our apartment. I sent them my resume last friday, interviewed tuesday, was asked for references wednesday, and got the offer thursday. I think they liked me... ^_^
To say I'm psyched about this is a total understatement. I really can't wait to get started!

VV00TT!

I'm sorry I haven't been up on the details but it's been quite clear how upset and frustrated you were. I'm glad you've gotten the heck out of Dodge and hope your new place treats you much better.

Congratulations! It sounds like you really needed a change. I'm all for getting out of evil work situations, having done it a few times myself.

That's *fantastic* news! It sounds like a lovely company (having heard about it from oceanic for a while now) and a MUCH better environment than the old place had become! Can't wait to hear more.
So! How're you? ... That's nice. I have news to share, so hush.… - another LJ. or: how i learned to stop worrying and love this life-thingy
