I am writing to let you know that I will be away for the next 2 weeks or so, starting tomorrow (well, tonight, really.) It's about this rather exciting thing that just happened. So I feel like I need to explain things a little bit to you.
You see, I just got a phone call from the last place I interviewed and they hired me on.
These folks there are super nice - they were looking for another partner in the clinic because one of the original founders retired. They are offering me a pretty complete and comprehensive entry and they said they are more than happy to help me grow professionally. On top of all that, this place is close to my parents' home so I can live out in their basement for a bit until I find a place of my own. (It also means living with my parents for a while. But that's not a bad thing. They've always said they wanted me closer to home so they can make sure I eat and sleep.) I've got friends and colleagues that are within driving distance away, too. All of that is a huge bit of good news that's a long time coming.
It also means I need to fly across half the distance of Canada, go back to my old apartment and clear it out. For the folks who's known me for a while, you may know that I've lived in that place for almost 6 years. It's going to be one heck of a move. And driving back to my parents' house is going to be a total of 3110 km (or 1932.5 miles). That means I'll be gone for a while to get things sorted out and haul my belongings from Point A to Point B.
So... I am sorry for the inconvenience. I promise I will be back as soon as possible. If you need me for anything, please leave a message. And I promise I will get back to you as quickly as humanly possible when I get myself established again!
Wish me luck!
P.S. Thanks for reading through the whole message!
And to say thank you, here's a sneak peak. I am planning on a small give-away of 3 prizes some time after I get back and get settled. It'll be for a post-cared sized piece that's similar to one of these: Kureha (Red Leaves)
(enlarge for 12 full examples.)
So if you think you are a trivia buff and knows the ins and outs, the ups and downs and the highways and the byways of multiple fandoms, this is for you. Get those brains ticking!
More details to follow!
