The One Where I'm Gainfully Employed...

So boys and girls, I'm officially employed. I accepted a position as of 3 p.m. today. I'll be working for a jewelry supplier in the corporate office. Store operations secretary is my official position. I swear it was like getting into the CIA or something. They did a credit, driving, and criminal background check on me, plus a drug test. Of course, I passed it all. Apparently all the jewelry ships to the corporate office and is resent to the stores, so I have to be trust worthy. I start Monday. I can't believe I start already. It's been a month, but the good thing is I'll get a pay check from my severence, and my new job at the same time. Yay!

The day I interviewed there, they called to move forward with the testing, and then the police station called me for an interview. They need a part time person to work in the station at the desk. I need a part time job to make up for the money I'm not making at my new job. $2.14/hr less. The new pt job will be weekends, and a few evenings. They seemed really interested in me and even offered me a full time position. You know, when it rains it pours.

Today, I got a call for an interview at a furniture store, and a manufacturing company. I hadn't accepted my position yet, and so I set them up for next week. Now I'll have to cancel them all.

I got my birthday wish, a job. This weekend I'm going to a Christmas party for my previous employer. They invited me but not my old dept. Eat that bitches!

So, this weekend I am going to celebrate. If I don't have too much fun at the shin dig I'm going to kick it at 80's night. The theme this month is 80's dance hits. Hell yea. Unfortunatly I can't get my wig split until next Tuesday.

Thank you to everyone for their positive comments and thoughts, I am certain they helped me get a job, that I think I'll enjoy. If not, as my friend Katie says.....It's just a job.
