Two years and eleven months. About 14 interviews, half of which were second interviews. About 165 jobs applied for. 644 documents in the “resumes applied” folder. One long recession. A few housing market crashes. And now, because one gal wants to get her Masters, I have a job.

I am not in my twenties anymore. I don’t want just any old job anymore. I want a career. I hope it works. I hope the synergy in the interview extends, well, throughout the career. I want a place where I can say I’ve been there 10 years and it’d been great.

I start August 2nd. It’s two weeks off. There are things to do. Secure daycare, set up Noris for the first two weeks in August. Pray Levi’s confused nap schedule won’t make us all bears. Get better organized on Steering Committee things, because I might only be able to attend half the meetings now!

I am humbled. But, I have a job.
