And now for a real update, I think

Rate this Entry
So, as previously mentioned, I'm still very much alive.

Back in April I switched companies, making a decision to become somewhat of a mercenary. I wound up netting myself a $7/hr salary increase in the process. Little did I know that it would send me a good 50 miles away, in shitty traffic, and would pretty much consume my life for almost 12 hours a day 5/6 days a week. Social life went down the drain, gym time went down the drain. It royally sucked.

In that time, I wound up getting turned down on two of the jobs that I've wanted forever. One of them was my own fault. Failed a heart rate test by a single heartbeat. The other was because I had gotten in trouble for drinking in college (an on campus incident; being underage and possessing beer. No legal action, so it's essentially bullshit). But long story short, I got turned down because the person in charge of hiring had a bug up their ass about any alcohol infractions.

However, in that time that killed my life, I made friends with a guy whose cousin is in very good position to help me out with the latter of positions.

I've started the steps to reapply and hopefully things go the way they should have.

And for those of you that have been paying attention to the news this past weekend, and know what I want to do, that event has made me want the position at hand even more.

Other than that, things are good. Same as usual, and now with more free time.
