Good news, everybody!
(If you didn't read that in a Professor Farnsworth voice, get thee to Netflix)
I applied for a job within my department - slightly more hectic, requires more of me, pays $2.50/hr or so better - and I just received confirmation that I got it!
I'm really excited that I'll be able to put more in my savings account and get off work earlier (this shift is 8-4) and be a little more challenged. Huzzah!
