Just finished signing my new contract. There were a few changes in there, one including I have to give a deposit for my house (wasn't done last year).
As for the raise, I'll just say it wasn't what I was shooting for but it is in a good range. He thanked me for returning next year, and I sincerely said I look forward to it. Also I'll be in the same grade and subject, so I'm happy with that too.
Now to kick back I guess and relax...hey Christmas is coming.
