Good afternoon!

It is Sunday! The one day off a week I get. It is such an anticipated day that is not nearly long enough. Well, I guess I'll give a little update to what has been going on in my life lately.

For starters, I have been applying for new jobs for quite some time now. The job I currently have, Bestwrench AutoCare, it's ok. But, I'm only making 12/hr. I work 52 to 60 hours a week, and have absolutely no benefits. My boss, Lee Dison, is a Napoleon Complexed know it all never can be wrong douchebag. Don't get me wrong, He can be hilarious as hell sometimes. But as a whole, he is rude, annoying, and a douchebag. He "owns" the business, however, his dad is the one who really runs it. So along with having no life, and being broke all the time, I must say that I really dislike my job. I have found another one though. Cypress Trucks, A company closer to my house. It would mean I would be driving semi again. Which I was trying to avoid. I would be considered a local driver. I would be home every Saturday and Sunday and most every night during the week. Karly can come to work with me again too. I would make about 300 more per week and get full benefits after 90 days. Medical, Vision, Dental, PTO, and 401k. I would be a "flat bedder". Hauling equipment and a range of different building materials. I will only travel Florida and southern Georgia. Orientation starts a week from Monday. 3 days long, usual trucking stuff. I haven't officially taken the job yet. I will go through orientation and make sure it is what I want to do. Then I will give notice to my current job. I pray it works out because I'm pretty miserable where I'm at. So is my baby girl.

Besides job hunting, I have been spending most of all my free time studying and taking practices tests for my A+. I purchased, CompTIA A+ Certification for dummies. I am very impressed with how well written and the amount of information that is in the book. Learning a lot more than I originally expected too. 1/4 way through the book and looking good! I will be attempting the test for the first time in the beginning of July. If all goes well with that, then I will continue on with Network +. Then I might delve into getting my MCSE in Windows 7, Server 2008?2009, and exchange server. Wish me luck and pray for my brain to work!

Besides all that, everything else is ok. The lights are still on and there is still Ramen Noodles and Mac'n'cheese in the cupboards. HaHaHa. Karly and I have inherited some stray kittens. We haven't taken them in the house but we put food and water out for them. Can't let the litter critters go hungry!

Well, until next time. - The MisFit Floridians.

Well, I have had 7 interviews and 3 job offers. I refused to of the jobs, however, this third one I may take.

Work monday thru friday 8 am to 6 pm and saturday 8 am to 4pm. I can get some saturdays off. But not all the time. They only wanted to pay 10/hr but I told them I wanted 13. So they offered me 12 and at 90 days a raise if I performed well. It would be 52 hours a week. I would make about 700 a week. Which is about what I made driving truck. The job position is a service writer for a small 7 bay mechanics shop. I would learn to run the business and manage 3 or 4 mechanics. They are growing slowly. I'm not a fan of the working every saturday. But I have done it before and it didn't bother me. I don't know.

It would teach me how to run my own shop etc... And If the buy another shop or grow alot there would be alot of possibilities for me.

They want me to start ASAP which is good. I don't know, any comments?

Saratoga, NY. Beautiful country up here... However, I hate new york. People here are just weird. HAHA j/k. Been sitting all day. Can't get a load out of here until tomorrow. Thats ok I guess. At least I found a truckstop with showers. Gonna do some laundry too and organize my music. ETc...

only 35 more days of this job. Thank goodness. Don't know how much more I can handle. You can only spend so much time alone before you finally realize that you are the insane one and everyone else is actually just fine. And thus.... My sanity has lost me. When you fight with yourself out loud about what kind of music you want to listen too...... or you talk to your dog expecting a response...... Somebody commit me. ROFLMAO

IF all goes right, I'm waiting on the IRS to get my tax return back to me. They befuddle it and instead of putting it in their system as a 1040a they put it in as a 1040x which is an amended return. So they were telling me. "you have to send us a copy of the original"... I told them... "you evil twits messed up now fix it." They said," Oh our bad. It will be an additional 30 days on top of the 6-8 weeks you have already waited." You know, if I had owed them money they would charge me interest. But since they owe me.... I just have to wait longer. Stupid little fucktards. Scuse my language but it really irks me.

I'm waiting on 3800 dollars so I can MOVE!!! to florida and start college down there. I can't wait. I'm so sick of North Dakota and its freakish weather. The only reason people stay there is because they have never been anywhere else and get SUCKED into its black hole like gravity. It eats you alive and slowly kills what brain cells you have left. eh... lol... Just a little taste of my utter hatred of the place. Only reason I stick around is for my mom and the fact that I'm scared shitless to move somewhere new and unfamiliar.

So i'm off to do laundry and will chat at myself lata.
