Big Adulting Day for EngineerBoy

On the day of his dad's funeral, Engineerboy was offered a Summer Internship at a company that sponsors his Baja Racing Team. Three months, full time, more money than I earn.

Also, same day, actually at the funeral, Beest's HR people told him they were interested in offering him a summer internship. And it wasn't a charitable move.

Earlier in the year, he told our local summer pool that he couldn't commit to coming back as manager because he was trying to get a summer internship. But their need-to-know deadline came and he hadn't heard anything about the internships he had applied for, and he's a freshman, so he agreed to return as pool manager.

Today, he resigned from the pool, and told beest's employer -who is suddenly very interested with an email at 4pm Friday and another at 4pm today requesting a face-to-face interviw this week- that he has taken another position.

So proud, but so much stress so young.... (He turned 19 on Friday)
