That was on a Friday. The following Monday afternoon I was offered the job. Having spent the weekend planning how I'd spend all the money I would be earning, there was very little to consider and said yes instantly. I started two days later! And I've been spending money gleefully ever since.
So here I am, the editor of the i-studentadvisor website and online magazines. There is a lot to learn, and I have an editorial staff of one. It's a big, busy job but I'm so excited to finally be getting paid to do what I'm best at. I will probably be putting the blog to rest for a while, especially seeing as I didn't keep up the original task of a daily professional improvement post beyond about a week. Or perhaps it will morph a bit into the musings of a publishing professional. Which is what I am once more. Yay for me. Pardon me getting a little sentimental, but it's been a long and emotional slog trying to find suitable employment in this recession-riddled place, but it finally happened, and in the most unexpected of ways. It's pretty much the best Christmas present ever.
