It can all change in the blink of an eye!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Just thought I would warn everyone that I won't be around in the near future because I just accepted an amazing job offer!!! Full time, benefits, 3 weeks vacation...the works!

In the past year, I have either been unemployed, underemployed, or have taken short temp assignments. Rob has been working overtime to help out and we have been under major stress. I usually 'lurked' more than posted because of this stress and didn't feel like airing my problems on the forum and being negative. But it is so hard to be a university graduate and remain unemployed for soooo long! It really hurts the spirit.

On top of job problems, we also had ongoing car problems and had to put our house renovation projects on hold. Just recently the sewer backed up in our basement and I really thought the sky was going to fall in on us!

But things drastically turned around this week and now I'm ready to get on with my life. So I won't be around for the next while, but with good reason!

I also wanted to send out a big thank you to all the angels behind the scenes who have helped me get through this past year. You really kept my spirit going when I didn't feel strong enough to believe in myself.

TCS is full of amazing & kind hearted spirits. I'm so fortunate to have met such an amazing group of people!

I never doubted for a moment that someone out there would recognize you as a true quality individual and hire you for that perfect job. I am so glad this worked out so well for you, and I will miss you and the Nakita hits you usually leave on the board. I commend you for not giving up and giving into the despair and I am grateful that I have met you even on a bulletin board. BTW I have been trying out those recipes you sent- your chicken and bow-tie pasta is the best!

Best of luck, keep in touch if you can-

Kass, I am SO happy for you!!! I know this has been a really trying time for you and Rob, and it was just one thing after another. But no bad tides like that can last forever! I feel the same way as Mary Anne, I KNEW the perfect position was out there somewhere for you - and I am SO HAPPY you finally found it!

Here's to the start of a new, and HAPPY, chapter in your life! (Canadian beer, eh? )

Kass - once again, congratulations. I am proud of you and of your strength after all the troubles you have been through. I know you have been working hard to get where you are going now.

I wish you all the best at your new job and do keep in touch with us!

And you have indeed proved the old saying "What does not kill you makes you stronger" is true.

Brilliant news!!

It makes me so happy when i hear of others good fortunes, especially when they've had it rough for a while.

I always remember(wish i could remember who it was)when someone on the site was having a bad time, and someone(again, i can't remember!)posted a reply saying'Wait 3 days'. How true i found those words to be!!

Lots of love and luck to you in the new job, but don't leave us forever!.

Oh Kass, it would be so sad if you and Nakita left forever, if you do find the time do come by and say hi

I'm really happy for you though, Big Congrats!

Thanks everyone for your support! It's greatly appreciated. I'm really excited to start on Monday.

Don't worry about me disappearing forever. Once I get settled, I'll be sure to update you guys. This place has been my home for the last while and I'd miss it too much. Nakita would also get depressed from not hearing from her fans if I left and we can't have a depressed cat, can we?

Once I finish my 3 month probationary period and am secure in the job, I'll finally buy my own camera! So get ready for amazing Nakita pics in the future!

Take care guys!
