I GOT THE JOB!!!
I grew up in a rather communal setting. The type where I didn't find out aboot things like 'religion' or 'philosophy' or 'race' until I was an adult. That didn't mean we didn't have hangups -- to this day, I still feel uncomfortable aboot MONEY. The root of and all that jazz.
So, I've been living comfortably at the Canadian poverty line.
Then I got married. And that...(understatement alert) changed things.
I started paying attention to the...limitations that my lifestyle accrued.
So, I re-entered school as a Medical Transcriptionist last year; I figured it combined a few of my favourite things: computers, writing, and LOGOS LOVE.
It was a tough and intense course (especially since I have what I jokingly call Tourette's Hearing). Thank goodness I had a teacher who was one of those types who is so encouraging.
The course ended in April, the practicum was over, and since then, my mind has been...rotting. Eating itself, essentially.
I had my graduation last Friday (soi strange so long after school was over) and was angered when I found out that 2 of my classmates had got jobs really close to me.
Then, when I got home, I found those wonderful emails, offering me a job.
To my new profession. My new life.
So, genties & ladlemen, what experiences have you had lately in your life that have been uplifting?
