    I'm sooooo happy right now!

    I have been unemployed for 6 months and finally landed a job today that far reached beyond my expectations!
    Was getting very depressed as there was just nothing out there and not much help from the government made the 6 months really tough going.

    I am so happy and just wanted to share it and give hope to those who have been in a similar situation.
