Job Update

First off, thanks to everyone who responded to my last entry about "OMG I HATE MAH JOB!!1!". I'm using my once-weekly Internet access now so haven't had time to respond.

I've actually been offered a new position for the same company. It's kind of...awkward. I will be working at their second facility which is an hour and a half away. BUT it's at the beach and my family has a beach house about 20 minutes away so I'm planning on driving downstate with the dogs/cats, staying at the beach house for 3 days while I work, then driving back upstate to my apartment the other 4 days of the week to spend time with he horses and work my other job.

Not an ideal set-up, but at least it gives me an option. I was planning on looking for other employment and quitting at the beginning of May anyway. This new position starts around that same time so I guess it's kind of meant to be. They're hiring a new vet and I will be the head technician in charge of surgery and anesthesia. NO PRESSURE, LOL. We'll see who gets burned out first - me or the vet.

BUT I'LL BE AT THE BEACH MORE OFTEN. I've missed it soooooo much. Maybe I can actually have a bit of a social life too. Love going to the open bars at the beach, where its acceptable to be sunburned and flip-flopped 100% of the time.

And, in what was the primary reason for me making this decision, I'm going to be making significantly more money. I'm making $12/hour at my current job and will be making almost $20/hour at the new one. YOU GUYS, THAT'S A SHIT TON OF MONEY FOR ME. EVEN IF I ONLY WORK 30 HOURS A WEEK. If nothing else, at least I'll deal with it for a few months over the summer and save up some money (hopefully). I'm already like "hmm, I could totally buy a horse trailer... and I DO need a bigger car...". Finance fail.

That's basically my Real Life Stuff.

If we want to channel the Fangirl for a second thooooough... HOLY FUCKBALLS, THE FOLLOWING. YOU GUYS. HOW IS EVERYONE NOT WATCHING THIS SHOW?? I ACTUALLY CRIED THE LAST EPISODE WITH THE CONVERSATION THAT RYAN AND CLAIRE HAD IN THE BEDROOM. SDFJAKHJFGASHJ KEVIN BACON IS MY GOD.

AND CASTLE. TWO WEEKS AGO, WITH THE EPISODE OF PERFECTION (i.e. with the Cursed Video one) ILU ONCE AGAIN SHOW.

(I have a new foster cat...who I named Stana. I have a problem.)
