Just found out that as of 1st March I have escaped from my current dead-end shitfest, for a whole new, much better paid, potential shitfest

Apologies for the spam factor, but I'm just so fucking chuffed right now. :DD Please feel free to use this thread to spread news of any other joyful happenings of the day.

Nice, good luck to you.

I just found out that if I don't find enough other work to leave my current dead-end shitfest for good soon, then I'll still be there when my shop starts opening at 8:30am instead of 10!

I have a new boss and I'm having to do at least 4 hours work a day now, it's a fucking outrage.

When I move to the states I will probably start off with a job working in a friend's coffee shop. So I'm just waiting for DX10 cards to start showing up in laptops so I can by a new comp and sit and play WoW during quiet hours :)

Why are you moving to the US to work in a coffee shop?

Yeah, come on NY. What will you be doing?

He won't tell us, though. He's like Will Smith in Enemy of the Estate. Gives nothing away.

I'm surprised he told us that it would be in London! :)

Sorry to hear that dude. :(

Is there no chance you can delay starting the job until after you've recovered from the surgery?

Currently seeking the best possible solution (there's a few complicating factors).

More nagging is what I'll do with myself for the next 6 months. I've never had nothing to do, before. :D

Thanks for the well wishes!

So yeah, both my doctor and surgeon support me staying home while waiting for the surgery (most likely in September) even though I currently feel completely well, so I don't feel quite so bad for being on sick leave and feeling totally okay.

My new job will be waiting for me once I'm better from the op (estimated 6 month recovery period!)

I feel like I should use this time for something productive but yeah I'll probably just play loads of games.

Recovering from an operation is absolutely the perfect excuse for playing games, so make the most of it!

That is great news! Really decent of them to wait, I guess in terms of being productive you could just make 100% sure you're as prepared as possible to start your new job, but yeah... mostly just play lots of games :)

Sorry to hear about your troubles NY, but it sounds like you've got the best result you could have ever hoped for. Enjoy your time off. I'd kill for 6 months in bed.
