I got a job!

I normally post at night, but I wanted to share some good news. Job 2 left me a message to call back and I called them back. I was really excited when she said that they were offering me a job! I was really happy, but I also wanted to see what happened with Job 1 so I asked for a little time to think about the offer. She said to call back by Friday and I agreed. I got in touch with Job 1 and they continued to say that I was a top candidate, but still had more round 1 interviews set up for what seems like the rest of this week and next week. She said that a decision probably wouldn't be made for another few weeks or so, and I thought that it was best to take the Job 2 offer since it also seems like a really great job.

I plan to call them tomorrow to let them know that I'm accepting the position. I believe I start August 1st, so I will have one more week off. I'm fairly sure my hours will be from 6:30am -3pm so I will need to adjust my sleeping schedule.

I think the salary is great for an entry level finance person and my next few posts will deal with setting up goals, an emergency fund, and some words about savings.
I'm excited!

Just to note about my health: I had another check-up, and they used a machine on my legs and checked out my lungs- the technician (or I guess he was a doctor) thinks that there is no clot in my leg. I'm definitely glad about this good news as well.
