Re: A decision to make

Sending you and Grandma lots of love. ((((Hugs))))

Good luck in finding relief to get out of a bad work situation. It's scary as hell, but so worth it once it happens.

Re: A decision to make

Thank you unmanagable. I'm sure my Mamaw would thank you as well.

My shoulders have hurt for over 2 years now (from stress related to this job).
I think it's time to move on.
I hope they call for me for an interview.

Re: A decision to make

I got offered a job interview for the position. I need to prepare a mini lesson and write a short essay. Shouldn't be too bad. I'm really nervous, but it will all be for nothing if they don't offer national health insurance...

Please wish me luck! (It's in 2 weeks)

Re: A decision to make

Had my interview today. The lesson portion could have been much better... I was way too nervous.(T _ T) I'm not sure what they will say, but I'll find out within the next 2 weeks.

Re: A decision to make

good luck! I'm also waiting on a call back from an interview and it's stressful. Good job tho going to find something you'll enjoy rather than something you hate but pays decently. (Helps that the pay is good in something you'll enjoy doing, but doesn't always work that way)

Re: A decision to make

The company finally called me back- a month later..
They're going to offer me the job.
Yeah!
I just have to try to coordiante all the details so I don't have a gap between jobs (even though I want a week to myself).
Thanks for your support everyone.
I'll let you know how it all goes.
