I tell you, "Phew!"

Good news! I get to keep doing something that I earn money for!

This wasn't guaranteed. I've been in a week-and-a-half of training for my new call center job, and this culminated today in a test I had to pass. If I didn't, I'd have to do the Sad Banner. This is the Sad Banner:

But. I passed. So I'm back tomorrow. And Monday I start my regular (for now) schedule, Monday through Friday 12:30 p.m. through 9:00 p.m. That's one reason I made sure to go to Geek Trivia Tuesday, because that'll be the last Geek Trivia I can go to for a while. The whole "earning money" thing trumps it.

I'm relieved I passed the test. I really wasn't confident before I took it, and I was only marginally more confident as I started. Last night I had an annoyingly on-the-nose dream about screwing up something exceedingly simple. With a character smart-assing at me about screwing up whatever simple thing I'd tried to do. YES, MIND, I GET IT. Go back to being weirder.

There are no guarantees, and I still have a lot to learn. But I have a foundation of knowledge -- enough of one -- and now I'll build on that.

Also, today I got paid for last week's training, anda week from now I'll get paid for this week's training, and a week after that I'll get paid again, and the circle of work will go on...
