    I was so depressed without work.

    I couldn't find the right job for me. My career went down the wrong path. But I didn't give up. I kept pressing on and somehow I got a job I never thought I'd be considered for. God has truly blessed me even though I thought all hope was lost. I'm glad I didn't give up.

    So...after several days of deliberation,

    self-doubt, and serious reflection; I've taken a new job. I know it may not sound like much to many people; but this has been a long time coming, and is my first non-forced job change of my 'career'. It took some time, and some recommendations from friends, I had a few...

    So Happy I Could Just About Die. Or Scream. Or Scream and Then Die.

    That title pretty much sums it up. I'm going to be making more money doing something I love, and I don't have to do selling of any sort and I don't have to do customer service. To hell with Rollaids. Relief is spelled J-O-B.
