i start on the 14th of april. i have a week off as they're short-staffed next week, and the supervisor wants to make sure i get all the attention i'll need during my first week. so it's nice to know i have some extra time off before starting, just to get myself together. the idea of really having a full-time job is completely overwhelming. maybe unbelievable is the better word to use. its something i wanted, but didn't believe would get. not now, not yet. and i'm lucky, so lucky, because i only went for interviews with 2 jobs since i got back from queensland, and wound up getting both of them. not everyone can have that luxury of choice.
i might not want a future in insurance and investments, but in a company like this, i'm on my way to having a career :) that's what i've always wanted, and russ says, "i want a career now too!" not just working, but working towards something. i always needed to have a drive. i always needed to push myself. now i can start over.
god, i'm so, so glad i came back home. what with my ex-housemates acting like psycho money-hunters the other night (long story, unhappy ending... but who really cares anyway?), and all my wonderful friends i have here in adelaide... i can't believe there was ever really a decision to be made. it was just a matter of time in the end.
