cheese, among other things

so i went out today filled with a certain amount of trepidation.

i came home with two chunks of very expensive and delicious cheese…and a job.

well, not A job, per se, but THE job. as in the full time equivalent of the best summer job ever of yesteryear. as in… boy, i was gonna make all sorts of "woot woot!" noises but then i realised that, really, i'm just very very tired. i suspect i'll be thrilled as soon as i get over this numbness, and in my head, i'm totally happy, just the rest of me hasn't caught up yet. too much to do, i suspect.

but no, really and truly: i got the job and i am thrilled beyond (evidently) my capacity to feel it at the moment. but yes: happy!

i just realised i put more excitement into my post about olive chicken than this, but my darling poultries, i really really am exhausted! why am i so exhausted? oh, yeah. the school thing.

alrighty then, back to the grind, but i wanted to take a few minutes to share my good news with you. seems like only yesterday i was telling you that i was going back to school, don't it? and now here i am! with a job! like a real honest to goodness adult! and a job that doesn't (hopefully) involve me coming home covered in blood and saliva, to boot!

Because... it's work. Even if it's work you want, and trained for, it's still something you do because they will be paying you.

Maybe a short break would have been useful, if anxiety producing. Still, GOOD FOR YOU!

I got blood and spit on me today!

no. i worked there this summer and LOVED it. and as a summer student i was somewhat underpaid…at least compared to what i was used to. this is the job i've been waiting for.

i think it's more that i am just tired and yes, the break that's coming will be useful. the week in poland is gonna be more of a chore than sheer pleasure, but i think that the utah hiking that follows will be precisely what the doctor ordered. and then ten days off after that before i start the job! time to paint the condo!!! woot!

Don't count out being covered in blood and saliva - there is a public engagement aspect to it! You know how those can go.

Congratulations! Well done! Your new employer clearly recognises talent, and that's a good start.

thank you, tom.

and anonymous - let's hope we keep all THAT to a minimum!
