Thanks for the words of encouragement guys! It's really good to be here. Still haven't heard about the job (Tuesday morning) but if I haven't heard by this afternoon I'm going to phone them. Waiting all day yesterday was seriously stressful.  :heeha:

I will keep you guys posted. Tmprince, just hang in there. I know that it sounds easy to say but it'll definitely be worth all the stress in the long run. Look at me, I'm talking as if my stress is over  :uglystupid2:

Keep the faith.

wow, all this advice and invaluable knowledge is something else. Thank you for all the encouragment, wise words and so importantly, the frankness. Having read some of the posts I can see why people say they could not have done it with the forum. So to all those who give so willingly, a very big thank you. Hope to meet up one day soon in NZ.
