When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.

This is going to be a super long post with a lot of bragging, so sorry not sorry.
I had an interview for a quality control lab tech position at this company upstate. The lab was so well organized, and the instruments looked amazing. The work would be constant and fast paced, since my ~possible~ department runs 24 hours to make sure everything in the plant is kosher. The tests I’d be running are mostly with instruments I haven’t gotten my hands on yet as a chemist. It all made me fall in love with chemistry again. It’s been a while since this dumb field I chose made me happy. And huge bonus, it’d be a late shift, so I could continue being a nocturnal fuck.
And they wanted me, like, immediately. The interview itself went great and I got to meet some important people in the company. They sent me for a drug test right after the interview, and they must have rushed the results or something because I just got a call that they’re already in and good. I’m going to go up again to continue the whole prehire process almost immediately. So I might be moving in like, a week? Two weeks?
The area up there is the perfect mix of tiny old town next to suburban civilization. I drove around a bit after my interview, and basically fell in love. It’s the kind of area where the second you get on a highway all you see is green and mountains and nature I want to be in asap. I still have to do some research to look for bars and tattoo shops, so I can continue being an asshole (but I did find a yoga studio). Besides that, it seems to be exactly what I need in a residence. I don’t know why I fancied myself city-folk, I’m absolutely not.
And super bonus, the salary is awesome for entry level in a position like this. Fuck, pretty awesome for entry level anywhere. With the rent rates up there, I very well might be able to spend a bit more on a one-bedroom with a washer dryer en suite and still be able to put a nice sum into savings. Or even just get new tattoos without panicking about money. Thank you, miracle of graduating without student loans!
I could be a relatively successful adult really really soon. I feel like I’m way too much of a shlub for everything to be working out. It’s so fucking weird.
