That was the message in my fortune cookie. I posted in General about a new job. I got an offer letter that I accepted recently. More money than I made before (ever before to be precise) and my duties are elevated and more interesting to me than what I''m doing now.

Sometime fortune cookies get it right

Don't you love it when a 'fortune' cookie has an actual fortune? Especially a good one that comes true! Congrats Brandon!

Thanks gahurts.

Thanks homewrecked2011

I definitely learned that I am introverted people-person. So 100% working from home is not me. This new job changes that.

Congratulations!

What a great fortune cookie. (remember the game where you add "under the sheets" to the fortune?? )

From one introvert that needs people to another, I totally get it.

Thanks Williesmom

Yeah, it's been a learning experience. My IC reminded me about "still waters running deep" because even though I'm quiet by nature and even I am not very demonstrative of my feelings for others I do care deeply. I'm learning to find ways to express that.

There are a lot of caring people here on SI and I appreciate SI and all of the support I've received.

I had one last year that said, "You would make a great lawyer". Since I"m in grad school for legal writing, I thought that was really cool. And I"m with better4me, you can end each fortune with "in bed"…weird that it always works!

Congrats, Brandon. That fortune is way cool. Even cooler that it actually came true.
