After feeling all doom and gloom for almost 2 months, some good news are coming along! :D I eventually got an offer for a customer service position at one of the big banks here in the UK. 25 mins by bus from home, right on the High Street, although the salary isn't that great, I would still say it is quite a catch.

Considering the current economy situation with the Triple Dip on the horizon, I consider myself very lucky to land a job that pays more than minimum wage, with (minimal) benefits, at a steady company, and possibility career progression. But just one day after I got the offer, I saw a vacancy for a job in my old field of work!

Although it was one step down from my previous role, it means going back to what I know, what I do well, and where the money is. After sending a follow up e-mail with more information, I received a call back from the company that I am qualified for their short list of candidates. More information will be coming later at the end of this week, I hope so bad that it'll be the positive news.

Please keep your fingers crossed for me. I really want this!!!

P.S. Any suggestion for a nice area to live in London that is not too expensive? Thanks!

Danno -- Thanks a lot! I hope I get to choose as well! Praying for more good news in the coming week(s)!

P'Tu -- Thank you very much! But let me keep you updated on the news first. I don't want to jinx it!

funky_house -- I am looking East, possibly Hammersmith line because that would take me straight to the station of the potential work. But I don't know where would be a good area to narrow the searches. But thanks for the suggestion!

My brother lives and works (hedge fund) in London. I hate his current girlfriend and would be more than happy to give you his contact info!

Hahaha, thanks Rob! I guess you forgot that I am married!!!
