I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

I start mid-september and spend a week working at the Mtl office, then I spend 2-3 weeks in Quebec City for extensive training.

Glad to be finishing off the year with a new beginning, coming into a new decade :)

Oh, do people make "new decade's resolutions" like they make new year's resolutions?

@jamie Thanks, Jamie, I appreciate it :) They have an office in London and idk, maybe one day I'll be going there too :3

@brandon Congrats! I'm not surprisedβ€”very well deserved :D

@codesections Haha aww thanks, man! That's much appreciated :3 Apparently they thought so too because their offer was higher than what I was asking for :P

@brandon WOO! You deserve it. Seems like its been quite the process, but its finally over!

@cavaliertusky Oh it's been a rollercoaster of emotions, for real. Between the several interview, and there being quite the delay at certain points, I've probably stressed myself out more about getting this job than I have about doing the move with my partner

@brandon congratulations!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ₯³πŸŽ‰

@Gina Thank you, Gina! I wish I had more time to celebrate! :P I'm moving Saturday so it's still just gonna be go go go until things have finally settled down

concrats then. all the anitcipation wasen't all waist.

@Twelve Oh for real! I was probably checking my phone every two minutes at some point :P I'm really excited, as you can tell :P

@AppleStrudelMan Thank you Apple Strudel Man! What are you having for breakfast? ;D

@brandon I bought a bagel with my coffee since I forgot my breakfast at home. No 🍎 involved. πŸ™

@AppleStrudelMan Hey that's better than I've got! I just have the coffee :P Maybe that will change soon :)

@lnxw48a1 Thanks Walt, it's been a long time coming (at least it feels like it :P )


Tout vient Γ  point Γ  qui sait attendre. πŸ˜‰

@normandc j'etais si loin de les envoyer un courriel pour leur demander s'ils y avaient des nouvelles :P

I had written the email, but not sent it yet on purpose (was waiting until 3pm) and then I had an email asking about a final call in my inbox (which was code for "we have an offer" as my friend informed me)

@brandon At some point people realize that making a "New X" resolution is pointless because if you want to change something you will, and at the time of your choosing, not some arbitrary date.
@brandon Also, congrats on the next adventure in your life, enjoy the learning.

@geniusmusing Thank you! I look forward to all the opportunities this is going to afford me :3

@geniusmusing True true, I don't think I've ever actually made changes through resolutions

@brandon Maybe celebrate by giving something to the community?

@agnelvishal that's not a bad idea, but it'll have to wait :p I'm ALSO moving today (lots of costs are incurred moving, if you're not familiar)
