Ahhh at last! [Feb. 16th, 2010|11:14 pm]

So, I got my lottery winnings today! Whoop whoop! I CANNOT wait to pay off some credit cards! I still can't believe that the chances of us winning was 1 in 3.8 million! Just glad I was one of the 20 that won. Never thought in my wildest dreams that I would/could win. Reliving that moment when they told us we had won is amazing. I could cry all over again just thinking about it. So needless to say, tonight will be pleasant dreams. :)

Holy crap! Congratulations! Are you going to keep working or are you going to focus on yourself for a while and pursue some of your interests?

Ha, unfortunately it's not enough to quit or pursue many interests. We were 1 number off from winning 171 mil though. Instead, we had to "settle" for winning $250K. Split that up 20 ways and take taxes out, not a bunch but enough to pay off dept and be comfy again. But yeah, probably will have enough to focus on myself and pursue some interests, just not many. :)

Ah well. While not the total freedom that could have been, some relief is always welcome, I'm sure. :) You don't update often (said the kettle- haha). Things okay? You still in Hamilton?

I stay pretty busy and don't get home 'til late on most nights so I never feel like getting online and don't typically like to update it while I'm at work. But yeah, still in Hamilton and probably will be for a while. Just put in so much hard work and money that I wouldn't feel right about leaving. I want to enjoy it now. Plus, there are still some things that I need to do to it.

How are things with you? Graduate yet or get a job in your field?

Graduated, but still looking for the big boy job. Apparently when corporate belts get tight, jobs like design work become scarce. So I'm back at Walgreens until somebody decides that my skill set will benefit their company. Just found out today that one of the temp agencies I registered with may have a design-related position open, so I'll learn more on Monday.

Well congrats on the graduation, I'm sure it's nice not to have to worry about studying anymore. Best of luck to you with the job search though.
