Hey, y'all, I just got the word and am just a wee bit thrilled!
Today I found out that I am officially 'owned' by (er, an employee of) Fox Interactive Media (FIM for short)!
That's the conglomerate that owns the American TV network (you probably recognize that). Specifically, I'm working for MySpace!
I've been a temporary worker for them for about a year now but since December (yeah, just in time for Christmas), they started laying people off because of who knows what, but the economy gets blamed, which is funny considering Fox is expanding, but whatev. I've been in fear of my job pretty much ever since and what with my crazy-ass school schedule I couldn't find a new job that would allow me to be full-time and still go to school, which meant I kept jumping through hoops hoping to get hired (and praying I wouldn't get fired first).
So, fuck yeah! I'm a permanent employee now, I get a dollar raise and benefits! and some tuition assistance for the fall.
I cannot tell you how relieved I am that I can stop job hunting and not have to worry any more.
And how am I celebrating? LOL I'm trying to write a psych paper due Monday. It's a behavior assessment of a really annoying third grader. She makes my sixth graders seem tame.
