I found out last night that I got the job at the Housing Authority! I am soo excited!!! The job is going to be amazing. I will be a Housing Counselor there and will be making 25k a year to start, full paid benefits for me and I found out they pay at least half the benefits for the kids. And they pay into a government pension. I will have to go to a training from January 11-15 up in Salt Lake but for that they will either compensate my gas money or pay for the plane ticket and such, plus a hotel room and an eating stipend each day. I will miss the boys so much while I'm gone but it will be worth it because then I will become certified.
My first day is...today! I am officially done with Convergys and will start at the Housing Authority this afternoon. They are letting me stay at the school until winter break, and then I bump to full time. I can't wait! I am going to miss working at the school soo much but I am on to bigger and better things!
So on my big "lets improve my life" checklist I can check off find a good job finally, and next up on the list....move! Now that I can afford to. Say goodbye to the sardine can, roach filled apartment and hello to a better and much cleaner place! :)
