    Smile Update to Wish Me Luck

    Well I just got off the phone with the president of the company I interviewed with last Friday. After 7 months of being unemployed and 4 of working for minimum wage at Jiffy Lube, I have a job in my old field again! Although I didn't get quite what I asked money wise, it's close and with a good eval after 90 days I'll be at what I asked. I go by tomorrow to start my paperwork and should start the 14th.

    That's awesome news! Never underestimate the power of yourself, or the many who hoped the best for you and wished you good luck. It works if you want it to. Same way a collective body sends up prayers. I'm happy for you.
