I got the job!

I’ve been looking for a new job for quite some time now and I’ve written a couple of stories about things that have happened to me along the way. I had the good fortune of being employed while I looked and that made it less stressful I’m sure but there was still a lot of stress.

The excited voice of the recruiter when he called to give me the offer verbally was mind-numbing to me; why was this guy so happy for me and why did he seem so genuine? I think this is what getting out of a mentally abusive relationship and finally, meeting “nice” people must be like.

Anyway, I’m just happy to be starting a new evolution in my life and I’m going to do my best to do a great job to pay back these wonderful people for taking a chance on me. I honestly have very little going for me but they picked me anyway!
