It's been going really, really, well, which is-- well, not a surprise really, but much more than I hoped. My last job beat me down, my best efforts bringing nothing but criticism. So it feels really, really good to get "thank you" and "you do great work" and "I'm definitely on your team" from people who could potentially be my boss. Everyone is very friendly and supportive, which is great, and the work is interesting, although of course I'm only doing very low-level stuff at the moment.

But I'm still not getting my hopes up too high. As you've seen the last few months, I have just had too many "sure things" turn out to be anything but. I'm just grateful to be making a little money, gaining a little more experience (I learned how to create a fillable self-calculating PDF form the other day, complete with javascript, and am getting used to Windows 7 and Office 2010, both of which I haven't been able to use because I can't afford them) and a little bit of a boost to my self-esteem, and doing something productive for the first time in months. And if I get it, well, all the better. I can think of much worse places to land.

So tomorrow at 8:30 am MST I'm interviewing to go permanent. Think of me then, will you?
