the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin
I had a job interview today. I've been angling for this new position at my same place of employment ever since the position was vacated in November. I've been doing the job since then on a very-part-time, interim basis and have really enjoyed it, and now I'm finally in the running to actually get it for reals. The interview today went SMASHINGLY well, as far as I'm concerned. I mean, I didn't bumble around and make a fool of myself and I felt that my interviewers were impressed with my enthusiasm and confidence (the kind of confidence that can only come after working at the same place for almost seven years and being utterly overqualified for the job...)
And I was pleasantly surprised when the compensation range was finally (FINALLY) disclosed to me. I might still be making peanuts, but there will be many more peanuts, and peanuts of a slightly higher quality. Maybe even organic peanuts. What I'm saying is, I'll be able to afford to pay the student loan people in March when they start asking for their goddamn money already.
Now I'm sitting here waiting for Mahavira to pick me up so we can go have drinks with her brother and sister-in-law. I am planning to make myself indespensable to Mahavira so that she can never leave me: one step is to ingratiate myself to her family. Wish me luck.
