So a few weeks ago I was at work bitching about how I was getting a bunch of bad tips and that I was getting impatient about starting my career as a working chemist. As I was complaining, I decided to stress-eat a fortune cookie. Naturally I read my fortune and started laughing, cause it's exactly what I needed to hear in regards to my situation. I took a picture to serve as a reminder.
About a week goes by, and I get a call saying I've been offered a job at the SF location for Blood Centers of the Pacific. I didn't wanna say anything until everything was clear and good to go so as to not jinx it. Well everything has officially been clear as of today, and I start on Monday 😁
TL;DR: don't ever give up pursuing your dreams!
