please, please, please let me get what i want ...

ok, i had a job interview today. and, i really, really, really want this one. more than any of the jobs i've applied to. except for this ultra cool job i applied to a year and a half ago. i don't even want to talk about that job right now.

the money is more than what i made at my last job (but, it will probably translate into about the same, because my transportation costs will go up). the benefits are awesome. vacation time is better than most places. i really like the area of vancouver it's in. it's good to drive to, and it's good for public transport as well. the building is cool and they have windows! lots of them! and, after the interview was finished, i wanted to hug my potential new boss. and i am not a hugger. she just seemed like one of the nicest people in the world. maybe i shouldn't be posting this. i'm probably cursing myself. but i have to let some of this out.

i do have a 1/2 woot on the job front. i did get the working at home job. it's only casual so i'm not making a whole lot of money. but it's better than nothing.

i also filled out an application to volunteer for something that could be fun. i'll update if they accept me.

you may not see me around much in the next little bit. i've got some casual work lined up which involves lots of computer use, so i'll be cutting back on some of the fun stuff for awhile. plus i am working on a post which is in a different vein for me. it involves a bunch of research and more brain power than usual.

i know i owe some of you emails and stuff. i'll try and catch up soon.

1/2 of a woot is most excellent :) I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you and hope that everything works out for you.

I find volunteering to be great fun, and a good release that sometimes gets your mind thinking in a new direction.

Look forward to reading this new direction post :) Best of luck, I will say a silent woot for you in thought :)

You know, of course, that if you use Smith's lyrics in any title, they automatically have to offer you the job for which you last interviewed? It's a law or something.

Wooting here.
