Jeff has a job!

Jeff got a job offer!

The only issue is that it is in a town where I wont be able to easily get a job in Social Work after graduation. If need be, we may have to move half way in between both of our jobs and drive a half hour to get to work everyday. This part sucks. But, him being unemployed was destroying our ability to get married next summer and he was not going to last much longer on the funds he had saved up. It pays extremely well, and is something he'll love to do.

Yay!!

    That's awesome news! As others have said, half an hour commute isn't so bad to live the life you want to lead with the person you want to be with! FI and I both have 30 minutes commutes and that's pretty standard for where we live. I'm so happy for you!

    Yay!!!! So glad he took it! Seriously, a half hour commute is nothing. FI and I each do an hour each way in opposite directions.

    Yeah! I have a long commute and 30 minutes is completely doable. If there isn't a traffic problem then it'll be completely fine!

    That's so great! A 30 minute commute isn't bad. Mine's 35-45 in the morning and about 45 in the evening. I recommend finding podcasts to make the drive time go faster.

    Congrats to him!!

    And driving a half hour really isn't bad at all.  If I get the job I interviewed for, my commute will be an hour to two hours one way.
