I grew a pair!



So all this time I heard that people had been talking about considering me for a temp-to-perm position, all behind my back, all saying nothing but great things, and then it came to nothing.

So today I finally approached my boss and she directed me toward the woman who's looking for an assistant next year and this whole time this woman was dropping hints so that I'd approach her about the position and not ONCE did I catch on. She said she included me in the mass e-mail she sent out saying, "Does anyone know of someone looking for an assistant position," hoping I'd reply, meanwhile I interpreted it as, "She's sending the letter to me but is asking if I know anyone else so I'm obviously not what she's looking for."

How much taller do I have to be for all these things not to go completely over my head?

So I'm going to start helping her out (in addition to the two other people I'm helping) and if it works out I'll go temp to perm.

Holy crap ;D
