I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After almost 5 months of unemployment, I'm proud to announce that I just accepted the opportunity of a lifetime!!!! I've been interviewing for this particular position since the first week of January, but didn't want to jinx it by blogging about the process. ***Edited to add: I can no longer go into any detail about my job, due to Corporate Policy. Let's just say that it is a REALLY great job, and that I'm REALLY REALLY happy. Hooray!

I can't even begin to tell you how blessed and relieved I feel to finally be employed again. When I lost my job, I felt like God came out of nowhere and put me through quite a trial- I had no idea how I was going to try to search for a job and plan a long-distance wedding, all while living on 30% of my previous income (in one of the most expensive cities in the world, no less)...

Now that I've finally seen the light at the end of the tunnel, I couldn't be happier to have gone through this trial. I will never again complain about how much I dislike my job or how boring I think it is, because I'll be forever grateful to HAVE a job affording me a steady income and health insurance. I've learned to never take for granted the daily extravagances I can now afford, like body lotion or cable TV.

I've really enjoyed having you on this uncertain path with me, Dear Reader... Let's raise a celebratory class of Veuve, and toast to the next leg of this amazing journey!

xoxo,

Lulu

Jade Bordeaux said...

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!
I know that we have a lot of people, here in America who are gonna love and be grateful for the next job that they have, and God sure does work in mysterious ways...doesnt he? Sometimes I wonder if the unemployment rate isn't skyrocketing to teach us all something...about greed,status,pressure,and what really is important in life.
Not to say that it is anyones fault, just that there is always a "message in the storm".
I am very happy for ya!
