Livin' in the Sunlight

Good afternoon,
My God...if you're in the BC area, you are no doubt resisting the urge to frolick around outside, considering it's probably 5 degrees and POURING rain. Fun times. What day is it...? March 17? Hmmmm...spring is in the air, I guess. o_O;;;
Well....I have officially begun the rat race. I have my very first full-time, 9-5, Monday to Friday JOB. Also, I guess you could call it a rat-race, but somehow, I doubt the rat race is supposed to be this COOL.
I now work at the 'prestigious' Studio B, in Vancouver, British Columbia. For now, I'm an animation revisionist, but in three weeks time, I'll be officially animating. As an animator. I'm sorry - I haven't quite gotten over the novelty of it yet. :D
Honestly, I am having a blast. It's so much fun over there, the people are so nice, not to mention infinatly patient (which I'm thankful for), kind,'s heaven. It's also hard work, but really, I wouldn't have it any other way. The facilities are great, the computers are awesome, and, well, from what I've seen, the show seems to be fairly on track, more or less. And, on a side note, the pay is amazing. Now, maybe to someone who's been in this for a while, it might be nothing (from what I've heard, Studio B pays pretty well), but you're talking to someone who, for the last year, lived on $500 a month. $316 went to rent, also. Not to mention that I've NEVER, in the five years I've been working, broke the $9.00 per hour rate. The MOST I've ever made was $8.65, and back then I was like "WOW! That's SO much money!!"
And benefits...! Weeeee!
Well, let's see what happens, and see how I do....I'm still really excited, and I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the future.
Also, thank you so much for everyone who supported me throughout the last year. It's also the little things that meant so much to me. I would not have made it this far without you. Thank you.
Love always,

I gotta tell you how happy I am for you!!! It must be very exciting, and it's obviously saying something about your skills when you land a job as an animator right off the bat ;)

You're also a very hard worker, and I've always admired you for that! Please continue in doing your best! I'm rooting for you :D
