When I told RockGirl that I'd gotten a permanent job offer today, and that I'd accepted it, she replied with, "Yay, I guess."
By the way, I italicized that word above because, as I learned a little over a year ago, permanent doesn't really mean what people think it means.
Anyway, I knew exactly what RockGirl meant.
After exhaustive research, I have determined that money is a good thing to have. But, another thing that's good to have is tons of freedom.
Sometimes, you can't have them both. Sometimes, you have to choose.
And, since my grand lottery plan never did work out, I had to choose. I chose money, and everything that comes with money. Food, housing, etc.
Plus, I'm really excited about this job. I know, everybody says that, but I really am.
