With the exception of a job that could only afford to pay me for 4 days I have been out of work for 310 days, applied at close to 700 places and been on dozens of interviews.

FINALLY today I was hired at a company that I know I will have long term employment at making great money working with great people at a great location right on the Bay with an amazing view of the Golden Gate bridge and surrounding waters

It is a dream job and the reason I moved to California in the first place 3 years ago.

Needless to say..I have never been this happy and plan on drinking this entire bottle of $4 champagne right now!

Congrats, Leleliz!!!
Awesome news! Enjoy every drop of that $4 sparking wine!!! With that first check go out and get yourself a $15 bottle and go again!
I've been out of work just over a month - still feel like I'm on vacation. But I'm sure I will be jonesin' to get back to work soon enough. Or when the unemployement runs out . . .

Thanks BK and Kiki.

Yeah my 2nd renewal of unemployment runs out mid October but then I am eligible for 30 or 36 extra weeks from the government.

I cant believe it took me almost a year to find a job. Freakin craziness!

Today is my 16th Wedding Anniversary. It makes me very happy knowing that Andy has put up with me for that many, plus a couple more, years.

Eating lunch "Doe" today @ the new "wild Ginger"restaurant in Bellevue, Washington.
I sat at the Satay bar and watched the 2 lovely, nimble tonged chefs dance out the orders, and when my time came, the Best chicken satay I've ever eaten, (and I've eaten alot!)I asked my waitperson to tell them how great it was, and she said "I don't speak their language"..
I waited untill they were looking my way, waved, pointed to my plate, gave them a thumbs up (hoping that their culture wouldn't take it as an insult), smiled and rubbed my tummy, and touched my fingers to my lips, bowing..they rewarded me with a big smile....a really happy moment!

After only being at my new job for less than 3 months I was still paid a really nice Christmas bonus as well as the company gave every employee a nice bottle of wine.

Cash & Booze = extreme happiness
