 So I got a call this morning - I got the Fort Edmonton job! <3 <3 <3 

I'm really, really  happy about this. Again, I was 98% sure I had the job, but when they take weeks and weeks getting back to you and you hear about other people being hired for similar positions first... I feel self-doubt.

Now that's one less thing I have to be anxious about. I can focus on finishing my papers and studying for exams! 

I mean, Fort Ed not the BEST paying job in the world - I could theoretically find better paid work in a warehouse somewhere - but that's not the point. Money is all well and good, but by working at the fort I get to actually enjoy my summer. I have fun, get fresh air, do historical research, wear pretty clothes and make pretty jewelry... I get paid to talk to people from all over the world or from right here in Alberta about the history of the region, and its awesome peculiarities. I get paid to talk about super-cool historical stuff.

Plus, the vast majority of the coworkers are absolutely amazing people. 

I'm going to be in the Fort (1846) Era again, possibly in the same role as last year. :) I have a different supervisor, but I know him to be awesome, so this is great too. :) It's going to be an awesome season! :D

To end this post off (short, because I really should be doing homework right now >_>  ), here is that gleeful photograph of myself in costume from last year, which effectively describes my mood at the moment: 

(On a completely different note: so, uh, Russian cyberterrorists?)

:D I swear I will make it out to visit you this summer (a.k.a. August).

PS, Russian cyberterrorists - stop breaking LJ. D:< What did fandom ever do to you?

Apparently there are some who are not fans of some political movement in Russia who use LJ as their blogs?

I was more trying to say that they were making fannish pursuits very difficult and what did fandom ever do to them to make them hate us so? XD

*sigh* I hope it blows over soon.

Yeah, I agree. :( I mean, it was down earlier when I first checked my e-mail... although the silver lining is that I get more homework done when LJ is acting up... ;)

There is truth to this statement. ;p

Congratulations, sweety!!

It's awesome to be employed, isn't it? Even more when it's to do something you love, AMIRITE? :3

Congratulations dear, I'm happy for you and hope you'll enjoy this job! (I wanted to comment you yesterday so I could have been the first commenter but damn LJ was down...)
