Finally, after 7 years at my agency, I am officially permanent staff. I have been working a full time position for numerous years, but it has been temporary. Which means, I had to reapply for the position every time it came due. Not a big deal really, but more of an irritation. Now, I own the position. It's mine. No one can take it from me and I am full time until forever.
I guess I should be more excited, but I feel like nothing has really changed. I guess it hasn't, but I feel like I should feel different. Or something. I have no idea.
Of course, now I am "one of them". The permanent full time staff. Not one of the casuals or the newbies or anything like that.
