It's officially official. I got offered a full time position at my company last week. Next Monday is my transition date. I'm getting a 30% pay increase, 401k matching, and the healthcare I will have access to are the same cost as my Obamacare coverage but much better coverage. Plus Dental. Which I need, because I have not been to a dentist in a few years. My schedule turns kind of shitty (12pm-9pm Tues-Sat) but the pay and access to good benefits is pretty worth it.
Needless to say, I've become a fully functioning adult (or close to it), which is fucking crazy. I'm pretty psyched about going permanent, (more due to pay and benefits than the actual work), but another part of me wants to just bleed them dry over the next few months/year and bail. Continue that cycle of work/unemployment. But this is more responsible and a better option. We'll see how it plays out
