Callooh, callay oh frabjous day...
I got the best job ever today!
I am part of a seven person team caring for 140+ acres of botanic gardens. I get forty hours per week, year round work, I get benefits, two weeks vacation per year to start out with (which rolls over per year, too, I can add it up!), and a job so great that employees had to be banned from coming in to volunteer on their days off. I will be working outdoors, gardening, all through my first spring in New England. I will see every first leaf, every new bud, every blossoming flower. I will be working in meadows, apple orchards, wildlife refuges, among gazebos and 1720's farmhouses. I will see every bird variety that Massachusetts has to offer. I will work among statues, brick paths, and dirt trails. I have been told to bring along a change of clothes to work, implying I will be immensely dirty.
I cannot imagine a happier day.
