I can't tell you how good it feels to get a job and get paid. My hours are all over the place (in a few weeks I'll have a few 60 hour weeks) but for an entry level position w/ only an associates degree (getting my bach) I'm doing ok.
I was out of work for over a year and the stress near the end before I got hired was unbearable... and shit is only going to bet better.
Being unemployed and a total load was the worst year of my life. I'm surprised +1 went through that tough time w/ me and didn't dump my ass.
