A couple of years ago I took a civil service test to get put on the list for state jobs, and have been receiving letters about potential jobs for about a year now. When I didn't get the teaching job for this year, I started replying to them in earnest, but NEVER got called for an interview, which made me think that my letters were just going into this state black hole, or that my resume paper smelled like BO or something. I was full of black despair, especially when I was forced to go back to my TIMP (temp agency pimp) and beg for work a couple of weeks ago.

BUT. Last week I got an interview for a state job! And today I was offered the job! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!

It's a job in a field I'd never pursue on my own with a super-bland Orwellian title like "Management Specialist Trainee I", but it has BENEFITS and a SALARY and FREE PARKING (an issue for state jobs) and the PEOPLE WERE NICE and the job itself will likely NOT REQUIRE hideous amounts of night and weekend work like teaching did of me, and and and.

I HAVE A JOB!

Man, I'm jealous of the paid parking. But the People Were Nice part is really and truly the best thing about any job. Yay!

They ARE! Thank you for the comment! I love that icon. I miss that GH era! Old Carly, the B&W flashback episodes, Dillon and Georgie being adorable . . . can't really remember much else.

Also! I have not forgotten about the things I promised to send you, things got busy and I am atrociously absent-minded. It will get to you eventually, I promise!

Thanks, Helen! The job sounds like it might be boring, and boring work generally = pointless LJ entries, so BRACE YOURSELF.

Also: The job includes potential for travel to NYC occasionally, so maybe we could get together sometime!

Thanks, Caroline! There is definitely potential for me to be spamming your friends list again, since there is regular computer access in the cubicle farms that characterize state jobs, unlike teaching.

Yay for you! I also am looking forward to the potential for many new posts from you. I didn't get a chance to comment before, but your post about the Elks club and the mumbler and your dad and the leaf in his hair had me laughing out loud. Also, I totally agree with your dad -- you really do want the doctors to find something wrong. I was extremely gratified when the doctor told me the reason I was experiencing tightness in my chest was pneumonia and not something lame like allergies or, God forbid, anxiety. I almost did a fist-pump right there on the exam table as he was writing up the scrip for my chest x-ray. Sadly, the x-ray itself was clear, but I still had pneumonia, so there. Vindicated, baby!!

Thank you for the congrats!

I totally just laughed in the middle of the office here at the image of someone doing a fist-pump upon being prescribed a chest x-ray - it's funny because it's SO TRUE, totally how I would feel in such a situation! Thank you for the kind comments about the Elks Club entry, too. I'm glad you liked it!

Congratulations -- that's great news! I don't work for the state here but I know lots of people who do, and it's a pretty sweet deal in general :)

A lot of my family work for the state, and from what I've seen it seems like a pretty sweet deal up here, too!

Thank you so much for the congrats!
