I got the internal position I applied for. With a raise. I would be more excited but some (happy but stressful) complications have arisen. Life is messy sometimes.
My mom just told me, as a last note before the close of our phone conversation, to watch out for black bears. I live and work in highly urban environments, with the closest black bear habitat at least 200 miles away, but my mom saw something on the news about attacking bears and how they’ve pretty much lost all reason.
"They’ll rip your face off," she said.
Thanks, mama. Love you, too.
