I got hired today! [View all]

After a very long 4 years of struggling with no offers for permanent employment, existing on side work, and generally feeling very down on myself, the tide has finally turned. Full time employment, with benefits and decent (not great, but not bad) wages.

To say I am pumped, is minimizing it. Thanks to all of the DUers that have given support over the long dry stretch.


Edited to add:

I am overwhelmed by so many wonderful responses from all of you fine folks. The out-pouring has left me kind of emotional. I will make an effort to respond to as many of you as I can, but it may take me a while, so please have patience.
