i got a job.

Been out of work since 01Feb2019. After applying to almost 100 jobs, one literally came looking for me in the person of a man i worked with previously. It's a contract position and will last 6 to 9 months, pays well, exercises all of my brain cells.

I'm so excited.

I'm 63 and being incapable of imagining a life with no income whatsoever, went ahead and started early Social Security. This job will supplement that nicely. I had severance for 4 months so really it couldn't be much better for me.

I'm so happy.

Between trump, republicans, and being 63 and unemployed, I have struggled with depression. I can't escape the awareness of the degradation of democracy and this rapid slide into fascism, but I got a job! So that's something I can feel very good about.

I'm so relieved.
