In fact, I was offered TWO jobs this week, which in all honesty made me feel like a greedy bastard.
It is a good job, one with enough compensation to make me feel secure and pay off the bills that have piled up in short order. There is enough work for only me to do that will last at least a year which may (or may not) be the end of the recession. Job security, I like it.
Better yet, it is exactly what I wanted. And if it turns out it isn't what I wanted, the other job offer stands for 30 days but pays significantly less - but is also exactly what I wanted in terms of type of work.
I leapt off a cliff 3 years ago, quitting my most hated job, going back to school, spending 40k on a degree I wasn't sure was really going to enhance my career as no one really understands what I do anyway. I regressed both financially and in sense of security as well as drove myself insane with worry, but it seems to have paid off.
I'm going to spend some time dreaming of ways to stimulate the economy in my own special way. (Yes, this includes shoes)
May my good fortune spread.
