Okay its really weird jumping into a full time job after having not worked a regular job in about a year and a half, but that is what I've done. I've been working solid 8 and 9 hour days every day since last tuesday and I won't be getting a day off until Saturday.
My boss wanted to make sure I got plenty of training. Which of course is a good idea but I'm already starting to get that "oh do I have to go into work today" feeling that comes from working 10 days straight without a day off. I'm anxious to get into my regular schedule which is going to be night shift and give me 3 and 4 days a week off.
I've been driving everyone nuts asking for rides to work, and home (as I still have no vehicle), and I've already had a few days where I was stuck at work a couple extra hours because I couldn't get a hold of someone to pick me up. So I can't wait until I can drive myself. Thus far the big thing keeping me from buying a car (other than the obvious fact that I have no money) is that car insurance is so expensive.
As for the job itself its a nice job I think. I basically get to work as slowly and methodically as I like and do not have to work with any customers. I'm working in a "clean room" (clean because its supposed to be clean but really isn't).
We make stampers for cd's and dvd's. They are basically molds for cd's and dvd's that other people at the company stamp out thousands of copies from. Its actually kind of neat. The only downside is that the chemicals I've been working with have caused the skin on my arms to break out. Which led me to telling some of my friends at live oak that I was "allergic to work."
So I should be back to posting regularly once I get on my regular work schedule, that means after tomorrow. Woohooo!!!! Of course there is still that issue of needing to move in the next couple weeks but I guess I'll cross that bridge later...
And one other thing... is it just me or have the last two debates been rather sleep-inducing? Oh yeah and isn't it funny how both candidates have the exact same position on gay marriage?
