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.
