Thank goodness, I finally have an offer for gainful employment. It's not as gainful as I would have hoped though. Once again, it looks like I'm going to have to a discount to what the general market is for my skills. While it's more money than I made at my previous job, with the increased costs of living, it turns out to be less in my pocket. At least there's some good perks like lunch brought in every day and free dinner if you stay late enough. It's incredible how standard that is around San Francisco.
It's a job that I think I can really excel at. It's going to be a challenge to try to save money in this environment.
