Shit's about to get real...
I'll be honest--I was starting to give up hope, I resigned myself to resuming the job search here in this reclaimed swamp of a state, Florida. I was starting to think, hmmm maybe I should enroll in a TESOL class, I'll be able to finish it before I get my damned background check back from the Feds. But then, after a frigid day in the field (62 degree (F) water is chilly even to my northern ass), there it is, you beautiful plain brown envelope containing a single sheet of paper, verifying my lack of criminal record! CHYEAH. Shit's about to get real.
