As of June 1st, I will have permanent employment. :D
This company called Spring Graphics that I interviewed with ages ago just called me out of the blue one day and asked me if I'm still looking for permanent work, because they need a web/print designer.
It's in Masterton, which is about an hour and a half from where Jason lives/works! So, we're going to get a place in between, but closer to my job than his (this was his idea - because there happens to be a mountain range between the two cities and he doesn't want me driving over the mountains...and I agree!).
I was just about to interview for a job in Queenstown! LOL...that's at the BOTTOM of the SOUTH ISLAND! Man....this is so much better. I can't believe Jason and I are going to live together. :) I found a bunch of places to rent and he's going to check them out tomorrow (I wish I could go with him, but I'm a 7 hour drive away still).
I'm finishing up here, at Environment BOP in Whakatane on May 27th. Jason's going to drive up and we'll spend the weekend getting my stuff back to Wellington. :)
I do have a party to go to here on that weekend...am hoping no one gets emotional at that.
I have a certain opinion of all the people I've met. I tend to think that I will see people again if both of us try to see eachother again (whether it's once every couple of years, or once every few months)...and if we don't try, then, aside from cool accidental meetings that lead to a coffee and a catch-up, neither party will be better or worse for never bumping into the other again.
I hope that doesn't sound too icy...I don't mean it in a bad way at all. I'm grateful for the people whom I've spent time with, because if either one of us has any memories of the other (bad, good, scary...sad...it doesn't matter), then we've touched eachother's lives, and that's an amaing thing in itself. If we meet again, cool. :)
I guess the best analogy is to imagine a gigantic river that we all travel upon. Some of us catch the current, some of us just drift...and some of us get caught in the sticky weeds on the sides... (am I taking this too far?)
If we happen to catch the same current, then good, but we are likely not going to bump into eachother again on it, unless one of us is paddling toward the other.
Okay, moving on from that....got a bit hung up.
I have to get a copy of my college diploma to give to immigration here. Bleh...I hate dealing with immigration...and I'm about to begin the long, painful application process.
