Jumping (back) on the Friday Five bandwagon, with:

1) A reminder to self, and everyone else who needs the same kick in the pants, that avoiding problems does NOT make them go away. Today I may not exactly be grateful, but my spine is straight, and I am dealing. Go me! Also, people, total strangers, are unexpectedly positive when I eat humble pie and ask for help.

2-5 are job opportunities I am passing along from the director of the tech writing program I took at De Anza. I hope someone can use the leads to good advantage!
