I know I said this in my other thread but I thought in case people don't want to read the downer stuff that here's a way to just skip over it and go straight to the good stuff. lol

So yeah I just got a call a little while back and got offered a job working at this antique store. It's going to start out part time but possibly work up to full time. This week I will be working 32 hours so thats pretty close to full time. I'm not sure my pay rate yet, but I think it's min wage which will suck, but at least its better than collecting unemployment. I'll get to wear T-shirts and jeans and its always going to be a day shift so nights will be open for partying! woooooooo lol

I've been dancing around my house singing, "I've got a job I've got a job!" I've called my friends and family and let them know, and I even whipped up a batch of turtle brownies which should be done shortly. (turtle brownies are brownies with pecans and topped with carmel for those who don't know).

So yeah I'm excited after 7 months I finally get to start working again!

Yay Lo!

I thought turtle brownies were made out of turtles at first. I was in equal parts horrified, intrigued, and interested to know how you extracted them from their shells.

Congratulations. Argh. Now I feel I have to type more, so I'm not accused of spamming.

Antique place, eh? sounds nice. A bit cooler than working in a Fish and Chip shop, I should imagine. Man, I do not want to go to work on Friday. All my exams are finished, and its going to be boiling in there. And busy. With annoying customers. And I'll burn the chips.

Great, now instead of a spam post, its a self-indulgent spam post. Anyway, have a good time at your new job.

7 months, huh? i've been unemployed for nigh on a year now, and it sucks. the unemployment office put me on this new computer course (new deal, for any of the british peeps). do they do this kind of thing in america? the bad thing is i'm into science (as in i want to work laboratory in a minor role), and i just found out that the unemployment office have othority to put people onto college courses instead of the computer course. i'm gutted. i could have been furthering my education instead of parttaking of this waste of time.
sorry if i'm boring anyone, but i had to vent my speen at the damned unemployment office and this seemed as good a place as any to do it.

The unemployment system in the states sucks. You only get like 75% of what you used to make at your last job given to you. My percentage may be off but here's an example: I would bring home about 230 dollars a week, unemployment pays me 152 a week. Also you only get unemployment for 6 months before they cut you off. Only because of the lack of jobs are they allowing people to get extensions on their unemployment, which I got and had another 3 months added, and 2 months to find a job before it wore out. Only thing that they do if you can't find a job is send you to this boring seminar for about 4 hours on a weekday, and then after that you either have to put your resume online, or get this place that's supposed to help you find a job, as in pay for you to take courses to better yourself and help with your training, but they don't do crap in fact I haven't heard from my rep in 2 months. Ok end unemployment rant.

$152 a week? Yipes, that's more than I get paid!

Anyway...

Congrats!

I remember my first 'proper' job (not a newspaper round) was working in a butchers! I spent my afternoons after school and Saturdays wiping blood off of walls in a room sized freezer and other rather grim tasks. And people wonder where I get my sense of humour from...

[this isn't meant to imply that this is you first proper job, I just fancied sharing a recollection!]

cleaning blood off of walls eh. might i ask how you thought up going and finding a job like that. I never new the had people to do that.

My first real job had to have been working in a deli in IGA, which isnt much like working in a proper deli, all i had to do was slice procecced snadwhich meat (and such, not real hunks of meat) and slicing cheese. a rathre boring job, but they let me have free meat and cheese all the time laugh.gif mmm spiced turkey and provolone cheese

I need to make something like 1500 a month to be able to afford to move out of my moms place again which is what I really want to do.......yeah those of you from yahoo chat last night know why! lol Beer and Sex! lol. I have a crap load of bills that I have to pay and 152 a week isn't cutting it. This was even with me cutting down on gas, cutting down on smokes, letting my mom buy all my food, pay all my utilities, and letting me live in her house for free. lol. I hope I can make some dough with this new job. lol

I'm picky and probably won't find one.... lol but I need SOMETHING... lol
