I just started my new job! It is working in student services for a large university in New Mexico! It is the perfect position for me - except it is only part-time. So, I'm still stuck in retail for the present moment working full-time at night and during the day I'm at the university. I still couldn't be happier. I think having to look for over a year makes me appreciate it more, but I'm still dead tired after just the first week of this schedule. But, on the upside, all my earnings are going straight into our house fund, so that is a great feeling.
To be honest, it is just nice to have a job and not constantly be job searching. It just isn't fun; in this market it is easy to be hard on yourself when things don't work out. Anyone else out there still looking around?
