Well, the new job that I thought I had will be a few more months in the future. It was a research project sponsored by the federal government, and as with any federal government project, things move slowly. They had all of us classroom observers ready to start work in November, and then the project manager pulled the plug and said there were a few more "kinks" to work out in the study. They said we would start in December, but now they're saying it will look more like January or February. I was kind of counting on that income to boost my savings account now that I'm living at home and looking to move out, but now I'm not counting on anything. So there's that. I don't want to look for another job, because this is a really exciting opportunity to be apart of early education research, but I think I will keep putting resumes out there and just see what comes my way. It's part of the luxury of living at home I suppose, and I'm really glad I wasn't dependent on that income. I guess we are all struggling in this economy and we just have to be thankful for what we DO have.
