Hey Chris, CONGRATULATIONS!!!

You mentioned a few weeks ago you had an interview coming up.  I guess you just swept them off their feet.  Doesn't surprise me one bit!

You see, in just a matter of a few short months you've managed to be HIV +; finish your senior project, graduate and now you're working. 

Good job, mate.

Aww thanks for the replies everyone it's much appreciated! 

It went ok today apart from it being ridiculously hot in the office, we are going through a bit of a heatwave at the moment.  I went looking for a fan to buy and take in tomorrow and it took me an over hour because all the shops were sold out, were not used to the heat in this country!  It's just an IT support job i'm doing at the moment it's only a temporary 2 month contract but i've had a telephone interview tonight for a permanent job that i'm absolutely desperate to get because the business park it's located in is fantastic it's got sports clubs and an outdoor swimming pool etc! And theres also the possibility of hearing about another interview tomorrow so hopefully shouldnt be long until i'm in something a bit more permanent.

Thanks again everyone!  ;D

Wonderful, wonderful news Chris!

I hope that you will find the right job for you, one that not only brings a paycheck at the end of the month but also lots of satisfaction on a daily basis.

Hi Chris!

Congratulations on the new job, and the prospect of a more permanent one, too! You've done a spectacular leap in a few short months, and I'm proud of you!

Speaking of heat, gosh, honey, we are into our 10th day of awful temperatures out here in Northern California...looking for a break, soon.

In admiration, and love,

Zeph :-*
