Maybe OK

I got a job offer! The position starts January 22. It's a good school around where I'm living now. Pay is good, hours are short, company isnt bankrupt... everything I've been dreaming of. I have also had a phone interview for an ESL winter camp in Korea, to fill the time (and wallet) until the other job starts.

We'll see, we'll see. I'm totally expecting something to go terribly wrong so I wont let myself get too happy yet. But, yesterday after the interview I celebrated by buying myself this ¥300 kawaii tiny fake cookie set.

So if I dont think about how I havent paid any of my bills this month (and wont be for the next two) and how I could possibly be kicked out of my apartment at any moment-- I am totally pumped.

Good luck, Mim

i agree with red-handed! This blog is much more of an interesting read when laced with utmost desperation and possible starvation.

:D

by the way, i bought the new kevin drew album (the lead of BSS). So i will arrive in Nihon with taco seasoning, peanut butter and new cd's in tow.

I'm 'totally pumped' for you too. (I'm guessing this is a positive thing. Forgive me if the meaning of this Americanism actually translates as burn-in-hell-you-evil-bitch.)
