I've been kibitzing ever since I started my job search in January.

I don't post much, but I love reading everyone's thoughts :-)

I've been here for a couple of weeks, and have already discovered some great folks here on the fora! 

(I've seem some pretty scary stuff, too, but life's a mixed bag, isn't it?)

Glad to have somewhere to introduce myself, anyway.     *waving, not drowning*

Hello! (yes, with a wave)

I'm new to the fora too. So tell me is there a five phase process to acclimation? (I'm still in the obsessive/compulsive reading phase...this is downright addictive!)

To answer your question, happy (may I call you "happy" or do you prefer HLT?), next comes the obsessive/compulsive posting phase.  Brace yourself.
