Positive news! (For me)

At the end of August 2013, I quit my go-nowhere job to attend school full time. My girlfriend could afford to support us at that point. Two months later she was diagnosed with cancer. With her urging, I remained in school (a one year certificate course) while she went through treatment. She has been working less and less, but still insisted I finish school. These last few weeks, money has been VERY scarce. I have three weeks left in school, but luckily my classes have dropped to one day a week.

I applied at a business that is located less than a mile away, and today I got the call that offered me the job.

I will be making twice what I was at my last job... plus benefits. And my gas money for the commute will cost less than most people's coffee budget for a week.

If I could do a happy dance here I would... but that would probably make most viewers reach for the eye bleach.

Thanks!

She's done chemo... and radiation... now it is a waiting game to see how it all worked. Another 5 weeks until the CT scan to tell us the news.

Congrats on the new job, AND completing school. Keep us updated on your gf.

P.S: She sounds like a keeper. You better put a ring on that finger.
