We interrupt our regular scheduled programming (blurry pictures of plant-based, oil-free food) for the following news: I got the job in Waterloo! I have no doubt it is largely in part to all the good vibes sent out by my wonderful readers and friends. :)
This means that I am now frantically trying to find an apartment (I'll be starting work in two weeks or so). I don't think it will be too hard - there are two universities and a college in Waterloo, so lots of housing to be found.
I am honestly so, so, SO ecstatic that I got the job. I can't remember the last time I was this happy and excited. I have NEVER had a permanent, full-time job before. I am used to living paycheque to paycheque (or OSAP installment to OSAP installment), and I hope I can finally make a realistic budget and start paying off my student debt. Plus, I think I'll love the job. I'll be working at a university where I used to be a student. I used to work in the math department as an undergraduate TA, and now I'll be coordinating the math labs and TAs. :)
In other news, I am going up to the cottage tonight for the long weekend. I haven't been up to my family's cottage all summer, and this might be my only chance. I'm going to do a lot of knitting, sleeping, and relaxing. However, this means I will not be able to blog again until Monday or Tuesday... and, for those of you keeping track, this Sunday is the last day of my 6-week Eat to Live challenge!
I will find a way to stay on track while at the cottage, and report back to you when I return. I am also packing the scale for my final weigh-in on Monday morning...
I have to finish packing and head out, but I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
