I am now officially employed by a company that can pay me a regular salary!

I’m both excited and terrified—for the same reason: it feels like life-life is beginning.

That is to say that I feel a stronger sense of responsibility for my future now.  Before it was just, “Let’s make it to the next crappy day.”

Now, however, it feels like I finally have a future to start preparing for.

Before it was, “Meh, I have the money in my account, and it’s shiny; I’ll buy it!”

Now it’s, “Hmm… I don’t know, I should probably put that money away for something more important.”

It’s an interesting feeling, both thrilling and terrifying, both enhungering [sic] and nauseating.

It’s a new experience that I hope I’m ready to take on.


  1. Congratulations. Welcome to the grown up world. Good luck with the new job.

  2. I'm really happy for you! It really feels good to have a job and earn money to make a living. And indeed we are lucky enough because average people like us are not having a hard time looking for a job and having it immediately.

    Disabled and injured employees before are having a hard time in looking for a job because of their condition. But now, with the help of some reemployment services companies in town, getting back to work and having a new job is a lot easier for them. Reemployment services programs as of the moment really suits the needs of the disabled and the injured employees.

    Anyways, good luck to your new job, enjoy and love your new job!
