User Topic: Finally--Goodbye Contract Job I Hated!

I had posted here more than a year ago about going back to work for a company I had worked for previously and loved. I hated it from the first couple of weeks. Now, about 1.5 years later, I have accepted another position. I have less than 2 weeks to go.

New position is still commuting into the city, but everything else will be fabulous--great company, stable, and I will be doing exactly what I love. I can't wait for this new chapter to begin.

Yay! Glad to hear it! Transitions can be scary but a good scary.

I don't think I am making sense but congratulations!

I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.

If this isn't what I consider soulmate crap, I don't know what is.

I know--giving up the familiar into the unknown. But I am looking forward to it.

Getting a new, exciting job is hands down one of the best feelings in the world. Congrats!
