Today just took a fantastic and unexpected turn!! I was looking for a part-time job before the winter break, just while I'm finishing the first year of my Master's degree, and was unenthused about the prospects, however; I did interview for one great job that I didn't think I would get. Today the university called me and offered me the position! I can't believe it! It's with the student union at the school I attend - the pay is more than I have ever earned in my life, and it's a one year term. This feels like the beginning of a great year.... I can't wait : )Nutrition
