Day 8: Joy - Take us back to a moment this year when you experienced pure, unadulterated joy.

Sadly, I'm having trouble pinpointing this one and I don't want to make a general list repeating myself. Ironically enough as I just finished typing that sentence, I remembered. How could I forget?! My moment of pure joy came on August 11, 2011.

It's the day I received the call saying that I got the job for the position I had just interviewed for in NYC. I remember I had just got home from my hell job and the phone came up a 212 number I didn't recognize. On chance, I answered it. It was the recruiting office calling to tell me that i had been hired and asking when I would be able to start. Joy isn't the word, I was elated!

She told me my starting salary, what time to be there on my first day, etc. I hung up the phone and quite literally cried. All the headache I was dealing with at Hell in Hackensack was finally over. I was getting a real job with coworkers and benefits and tax deductions. FINALLY.
