Wow, wow, and wow! All this good news over the past few months that I'd missed out on!
Congrats to Zach, NebraskaCat, and Blakeney Green!
Zach, it sounds like you've really found the perfect career for you and that others are really appreciating your skills - and that you've benefited as well by gaining confidence in public speaking.
NebraskaCat! This major news item totally escaped me. What wonderful news!
Is there a wedding planned soon??
Blakeney Green, great news about Masie, and congratulations on the new job! And how great that you're already familiar with working at the "new" job and that you already know you like it, so the only difference is (hopefully) that you'll be getting more pay and/or benefits for doing the same thing.
The education and outreach aspects sound really interesting as well!
