Job Update, because Tumblr is the new Livejournal…

I got a job offer today (yay). It’s at the place I wrote about earlier, where the CEO smokes in the office, but after going there and feeling things out, I don’t think it will be too much of an issue. He’s only there a few days a week, and half days at that. My office can be closed off, and when I checked it out, it didn’t smell like smoke at all. 

He’s very flexible and open to me working from home when and if I need to, and is of the opinion of “if the work is done, you don’t need to be here anymore.” In other words, if I can get 40 hours of work done in 30, I can go. He’s fine with me coming in a little later in the morning to accommodate my childcare and travel concerns.

It’s not quite as much as I wanted (it’s still $5,000 more than I make now), but they give you extra money to not use their insurance every month. Combine that with not having to pay what I’m currently paying when we go on my husband’s policy, and it’s like an extra $5,000 in our pockets. 

Opportunities for advancement abound. He wants to essentially build the expansion of their creative department around me. It’s a tall order to fill, but I don’t have any doubts in my abilities.

So I’d have my own office that’s bigger than my bedroom (and probably my kid’s bedroom combined). A wall of windows that overlooks a creek and marshland. Flexible schedule. Whatever computer and equipment I want. His condition? “Decorate this fucking office. It looks like a dorm room.” Oh, and he curses like a sailor and is fine with me doing the same.

Ugh.

Ughhhhhhhhh.

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do
