Today I got a job.
No more desperate searching, no more killer, literally, temp jobs. No more worrying about getting hit by cars and having no way to pay for it since I'll have health insurance.
It all happened very quickly, as I just interviewed yesterday, but starting Feb. 4 I begin my first job with benefits, first job where I don't know the end date in advance.
I'll be working at a place in old town Alexandria. My official title is "instructional designer." They design training materials for different clients, and I'll be writing, editing, and developing these materials. It is not what I thought I wanted, but after interviewing for it, I know it's something that would fit for me, and that I think I could be good at.
So that's that for now. More information as I know it. (And I'll update for the past few days later.) Right now, as I fell asleep during the UNC game - gasp! - it's time for bed.
