OK, so, point one: got what I needed, docs-wise. This is good. This allows me to handle a couple other looming issues.

Point two: I would have gone in for orientation tomorrow, but this afternoon I received a phone call about a resume I had thought long since ignored. While the job doesn't pay any more (in fact, it's a little less per hour), it'd be full-time work, and not at a place that makes me loathe to speak its name (you may have noticed that part...). This means more money in the end, and bennies (I assume). This means it's a better option, over all.

So, I go Thursday to see if I can land the job. Meanwhile, I talked to the first job, and they agreed to hold my position open for one week, so if the interview goes badly, I still have the job on which to fall back. Not too shabby, eh?

Man, this has all been weird, and has made me think about some aspects of my life that I have pointedly ignored for a long time. It hasn't all been good, but the end result should be worth it.

Edited to add detail

Is the second job a sure thing? Congrats if it is! Better is always good :)

It's a "pretty sure" thing. however, I've already talked to Job 1, and they'll hold my position open for one week as a fallback, which is cool. So, i'm good, regardless.

Wow, that's great! I'm so happy that you've found a position either way :)

Congrats, brother! This is exceedingly awesome.

I'd be careful of assuming benefits, though. Just my two cents. And not that I'm saying that should/would change anything.

No, you're absolutely right, best to assume nothing. Still, at least there's a chance, as opposed to no chance, which is what I'd have had at part-time.

Yay Job(s)! I'm up for a Phone Tech thing. It would be a good skills upgrade, and I have all but one tool needed. 4 weeks paid training, One week of testing. Then up up & away. The possibility of travel is about 75% right now.
