Good Things Come to Those Who Are Patient

So remember that job that I really *really* wanted?

I am officially off the job market. It is mine.

*big sigh of relief*

It is one of those rare jobs where the job description seemed like it was written specifically for me. It will be challenging, interesting, and meaningful. Doing research and statistics. Just my kind of thing. I am beyond excited.

I start soon, so I have to get my apartment organized in the next few days. That's actually good. The housewife thing got old fast. So much for my plans for being a tourist in DC while I was unemployed. Oh well, there will be time for that later. On the running front, my new job doesn't interfere with Gansett at all. I pretty much go from running a marathon to working full-time again. I am probably going to take a running break after Gansett anyway. Perfect.

I will have a sweet commute. Every time I have done it, it was 25 minutes door-to-door. Walk 2 blocks, get on the Metro, get off the Metro, walk a block and a half. No train switches. Couldn't be any easier. Waaaay better than sitting in my car for 45 minutes doing nothing.

All of a sudden, I am feeling much better about moving to DC :-D


  1. Congrats on the new job, that is exciting! Sounds like a nice & easy commute! That metro confuses me - I'm a teeny bit excited to experience what it's like to not drive everywhere, and use public transportation.. weird huh?

    1. Thanks! I am excited.

      The Metro is kinda confusing at first, but it isn't so bad once you get the hang of it.
