Yes, Virginia, there is a Goddess.

One of the things I've rarely bothered doing is ranting about my workplace.  This is simply because I don't want to spew a lot of vitrol over the fact that I've had to deal with levels of stupidity that can boggle the imagination at times.  However, because of the situations at work, I had made a personal goal of leaving the facility by the end of the year... whether it would be by getting a new job somewhere, or just simply walking out from being overwhelmed with the bull.

Fortunately, the goddess decided that the former would be the way for me.  As of this afternoon, I had received an offer from the facility in Houston Texas (actually Pasadena, just outside the Johnson Space Center) and accepted said position.  It means a promotion to a level 3 tech, a hefty pay increase of around 25%, but it also means I'll be leaving Fort Walton Beach to move by the end of the month.

The good aspects are that there are plenty of apartment complexes within easy walking distance of the facility, shopping won't be a problem either, and I can (for now) continue without needing a car (for the moment.)  It also makes visiting mshollie easier, as there's always Southwest flying back and forth.  The bad are that I'll need to get an apartment, cable, internet, power... and outfit the apartment with furniture.  But that can be dealt with later.

So in a month or so I'll be living in Pasadena, Texas and working in a much more comfortable environment.  For me.

Believe me, I've been hoping for this for a while. The atmosphere at work is just so toxic of late. But this will be a much better environment for someone like me.

Like I told you, you submit to the body scans at the airport, and the patdowns when you get to my place. *evyl gryn*

I do hope you'll change your gloves! ;) Meanwhile, I'm navigating the Metro from Hobby Airport to Pasadena and back. This is going to be interesting.

Shouldn't be too bad, already have a list of like 15 apartments within 2 miles of the facility.

Congrats! Sounds cool!
You'll be the not-so-little old dragon from Pasadena. :D

You can also play SCA with mistress_nerak. She's in the process of moving to north Houston.
