I got the job! I think I must have said "thank you" so many times on the phone to my new boss that he thinks I'm an idiot but no matter, I got the job!!
I start on April 1st, which would have been my first day of unemployment.
Good things come to those who fail to plan for a proper emergency and instead buy fancy cameras online. Wait scratch that, but OMG I'm so happy!
AND I'm going to be making more money! More details to come!
