Still in college, went from a $10/hr ($20,800/yr plus occasional OT) job where i really just did whatever they threw at me, to a salaried $32,000 a year developer position.

Also in the past 3 weeks I moved into a new apartment (living alone for the first time ever), and ended up with an absolutely wonderful girlfriend.

So does this mean that I'm due to be hit by a train or what? I'm not used to this kind of luck.

Congrats. Just remember, sometimes things arent always as good or bad as they seem.

Not to rain on your parade, but:

1. She could be a guy :shocked:

2. Your new boss will turn out to be a dick

3. You discover black mold in your new apt



;)

Not till I ask her. She's something of a nerd herself, can kick my ass in most fighting games and loves NWN, so I don't know what forums she trolls yet. I can only imagine that conversation

"So I was reading ATOT today, and came across this thread..."

Good for you, but you are still on the low end regarding your pay (at least for a developer), get some experience and get something better

Regards and GL

She's probably too old for him :p Assuming the girl is around 20 or so :laugh:

Congrats on all the good news! I'd be terrified if it were me :D
