    I'm currently a tube welder for a boiler service co. and I have access to dealer auctions so when I'm home I wholesale used cars. I'm getting ready to get my real estate license so I can try that market out as well.
    I've only got one semester left in college (took a bit of a break) so I'm thinking this summer I'm going to finish and shoot for the Marines piloting program :D

    I work at a mental institution in Nashville Tennessee, and I'm going to school to be a registered nurse. Funny thing is, if my Talon keeps needing more crap, I'll be the patient soon.....LOL.......

    Got off work early today @11 due to power outage in area my crew was supposed to work. Have call in tonight to see if the machines are working, if there's worl in the morning. Well, I did get paid for the 4hours I was there but didnt work due to the power. Hopefully there will be work tommorrow but my weekends are open this week. Following, I do work three 12hr days in a row. Gotta love this set schedule I have, woot.

    Curious, what does this year's SO fall on.

    worked my first full 12 hours on thrusday, it went really well.

    Funny thing this staffing firm kept calling me, while I was working had my cell on vibrate. Well, the girl that called me did it by accident supposedly she made an excuse she call a wrong emergency phone. But when I got home a relative told that they called asked where I was working it. Then they said oh yeah that's right he is there drrr.. Well, I do know for a fact that Child support does indeed check on where people work at because I called into them a day before went in when they had a power outage.

    When I talked to my child support case worker about my new job she said that was great, and since I'm felony free thats a major plus for me. Because they don't hired them. I do think my supervisor does like my work cause he said I'll see monday. One cool its 12hours at the same machine unlike a rotation every 30 minutes like some factories.

    It would be cool if this year's SO, falls on a weekend I'm off. If not thats alright because there's few other tracks around me, that weekend.

    Thats cool you're serving. Do you work 7 to 7 type a shift.
    I only got 5 hours of sleep in for my first full day but still made it in and did pretty good.

    I think you have to go to bed like around 9pm to get a decent hours of sleep in.

    If you heard of the power nap thing, that helps too. Like when your on lunch do a 5 minute snooze, I've done it does help abit. Didn't do this on my new job though it was a decade ago when I was driver for a pizza shop. I worked 16 hours mainly because I requested to travel to other shops when short handed but an daily occurance, tips was excellent.

    I'm off till Mon its why I'm on late but at times I do forget to signout, due to doing aarons etc..

    Photo Lab Supervisor for a retail/pharmacy store, doesn't pay a whole lot but it sure beats being on unemployment. Was laid off my last job a couple years ago (company wasn't doing so well) unemployment pay sucks not too mention having that much free time on your hands is pretty boring.
