IO: Holla 4 tha dollaz!!!

So, after having an interview that was absolutely terrible yesterday, I got a phone call at 8:30 this morning offering me the position!

Yeah, I have no idea either. I just know that I was at home in tears like 15 hours ago. And now I'm bouncing off the walls! She said they liked my ideas for the position, and they want me to make it my own. They will train me and support me when I come to them with ideas for the department or when I want to try something out.

The position is an academic advisor for graduate students at GMU. It is part time, which means no benefits, however, it pays REALLY well. I'll be basically starting around the same salary I expected with a full-time job in this field. I've discussed with my parents, and they said I can move back in with them since it is just a 25 minute commute from their house (which will be weird...I haven't *lived* with them in YEARS...I've only visited.) The part-time is perfect, because that means I can do what I really want to do, and that's take some economics courses so I can apply for another degree in a completely different field (International Affaiars - I haven't decided if I want to get another Master's or a PhD). AND, because I'm working at the school, I can take the courses there FOR FREE! So, essentially, I'll be able to finally save money...which is something I don't think I've ever been able to do in my lifetime.

I'm soooo excited right now! It is hard to focus. Except last night I had a nightmare that my advisor was chasing me down yelling at me to send him a chapter of my research project. I don't need anymore dreams of my advisor, so I'm off to the library.

Thanks to all who offered me lovely words of encouragement and support during this time! It really means a lot.

He must have been playing the Bad Cop role, but you're chill demeanor and mad style overcame.

Way to go!

Pretty soon you can start your own money threads like Zoomerang or get those grilles you always wanted:

wow, I have actually ventured into IO just to say congratulations!!!

GMU is a good school and not so far from here. When you get all moved in, we need to reschedule that interferencer get-together.
