I'm taking the plunge!

I accepted the dream job today, and told the company in Vermont that I was very sorry, but an opportunity I couldn't pass up was offered to me. Telling them was relatively quick and painless. They wished me well and I thanked them for offering me the job.

So I move home on the holiday weekend. My boyfriend is picking me up Friday, and we should be back in Dartmouth Saturday. I'm looking forward to being home again.

And Jacki, yes, he's going to go to school in Halifax. He actually wants to speak with you about the math department at SMU while he's there. I'll be in touch :)

Linda, are you back in res yet? I tried to clean it up as best I could, ask Norma Jean how much of our deposits we're getting back. You should have seen the small bathroom, it was disgusting :P

Hello again!

Greetings all, sorry for the absence. I have moved out of residence since the year ended, and been living with my aunt and uncle in Kingston for a while, so have been unable to update. I'm still at said uncle's, but stealing a bit of internet time.

I had my live interview at Vermont last week. It went so well that they offered me a position higher than the one I had applied for. This is a good thing.

Then on Friday, I got a job offer from an archaeological firm back home. Essentially, they're offering me my dream job. The catch? It's a temporary position. However, there is the potential for other contracts with them after, as they have funding for the next year, and I can't even begin to tell you the contacts I could make here, and the potential research for my masters that could be done.

So tomorrow I'm calling the universities back home to see if my boyfriend's credits from his American program will transfer over, as I really want to do this job. I've told them that I'll let them know by Wednesday if I'm going to take it.

I'm really excited about this, and I hope it works out. I'll keep you posted as I can!
