    After being unemployed for more or less a year I finally managed to get a job! At least for a year forward. I am so relieved and happy. And the job starts in August, so I can have a proper summer vacation before that.

    I'm going to be hauling junk to the dump this summer. Pay is pretty good, I get to be outside, and can listen to my music driving around. Maybe I'll even get some more meat on my bones before I'm through.
