To everyone that has provided suggestions and encouragement and listened to my bitchin' about white trash and the city currently live in I have good news.
I have just accepted a position that is a side step and a bit forward on the career path, but in a much better place for me personally and professionally.
Now comes the fun part, trying to sell my house and find a place to live an 18 hour car drive away.
I start in mid March, and it will probably cut into my slacking time considerably after that.
Bye bye white trash, "mini homes", bags of bologna,that "good dark rum", smelts, sugar donuts as high class food and inbred albinos.
