After NINETY-SIX grueling and discouraging days of job-hunting, I finally have an offer that fits. I will be starting with two studio days at The International School of Music.

I will be located at the southern campus (not that the other one is that far away). To say that I am limp with relief is an understatement.  Still some hours needed to have a full-time life, but at least I will now be back in the ranks of the employed and can also focus my housing hunt.

I am so grateful to each of you who has offered support in myriad ways. I won't say that this is the toughest thing I've lived through, but it's been a slow drip of demoralizing days and I am glad to be focusing my energies towards actually working now.


  1. Such great news. I'm happy for you!

  2. Congrats! Hope it's the start of many good things!

  3. Great news, Laurie. When do you start? If you need a place to stay that's a little far away, I'll be moved in by end of week of 10/23.

  4. At last! I was gone yesterday and didn't find out until now. I hope this is something you love and works well for you. Congratulations on hanging in there.

  5. Sometimes, the light's all shining on me,
    Other times I can barely see,
    Lately it occurs to me
    What a long, strange trip its been...

    Felicitation, et bonne chance.
