    Career/ Life Update and I’m Still Alive.


    by cuteelf ·

    I’ve been away from TR for awhile. I really dont have any good excuses, so please spank me (JD, get the belt out!!).

    I have popped my head in once in awhile, and said hello, while the replies to me have been WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU?

    So, here I am.

    Update on life.
    I was horridly unemployed from Oct 05 til MAY 06. I was literally going nuts w/ cabin fever, and finally got a call May 2nd. I was offered an interview.
    While sh!tting a brick, I accepted interview and got spiffed up for it.

    It was at a local large bizness, and pay is, well, better than eating beans & rice.
    Interview went good, boss had great poker face, I didnt think I would get it. (usually I’m good at guesstimating).
    Well, I was wrong. 🙂 I got the job offered to me the next week, and was hired May 15.

    Since then I’ve been a Tech 1/ Helpdesk Biotch, and learning lots about AD, Network standards, crazy political BULLSH1T (no automagick lockouts or kickouts from Windows…HIPPA, anyone???)

    Dells have fubar mobos and PSU’s. 😛
    Life gets interesting when Email servers puke.
    It also gets interesting when Spam Filters die same week.
    It gets really really fun when a GPO goes south and you have to manually do the install on over 1200 pc’s.

    So, life has been interesting, and I’m still working on my BS degree (can’t you tell :P) and trying to get back in the black.

    But, even more of an update.

    I might have another job offer soon. A governmental (heh mental) job, with better pay and
    bennies, and more roads to drive on!!!!!!!

    So, besides a blood draw/ first born, thats what all I’ve been up to.

    Miss you gals & guys, and I will be around more. Promise.

    Put the belt away, JD.

      Sorry to hear about the bad fortune, but glad you’re employed again.

      I was away too. Except, I was just busy with doing things my boss said he has no time for…plus all my own duties. 😀

      Glad to see you back. 🙂

      Yes I’ve accpted, just nothing in writing yet.
      He’s coming back from vacation on Aug 22, then we start the ball rolling w/ a WRITTEN agreement about me & work.

      I’m planning on shipping car & some stuff, and having fun.

      I will miss current job tho. 🙁

        Have you compared

        by jdclyde ·

        In reply to more

        the cost of shipping “car and stuff” with selling “car and stuff” and buying different “car and stuff” when you reach your destination?

        Best of luck with the move, and congrats on the job and the NEW job. Things are looking up, AGAIN! 😀

        And remember to do short term renting when you move to a new area when possible, because you can’t really tell what it will be like till you are there and will want some freedom to relocate if desired. Year leases or buying are never a good idea right off the bat.

        What is the new position? Duties? Technology used?
