Two weeks after I was told I was being laid off, my job search has ended. I start my new job at Paperless Business Systems in July.

Special thanks to the real-life friends who helped me with my job search: David of the University of Washington, Jon of Rapid Systems, Cameron of Cray, Kyle of WildTangent, Dylan of Pokemon USA, and Jun and Apurva of Microsoft. While I ended up not getting a job at any of your companies, you went above and beyond to get me leads. It is because of you that I have kept my house, my job, and my visa. I will pay you all back someday.

Now it is time to draw again.

    Thanks, everyone. Getting laid off actually increased the amount of work I had to do, with my old job giving me a one-month contract to teach the other people at work how to do the tasks that would normally fall to me, and the whole job search on top of that. Not to mention I have to make an emergency trip to San Francisco to renew my passport. The worst is over, but I’m not out of the woods yet.

    Congrats on the new job; I knew everything would work out! I’m really glad you found another job, cause it would really suck if you had to leave. Good luck with everything!

    This news comes as a relief. It would be sad it you’d lost your visa. Congratulations.
