Yeah, you can like that. Everyone else can be ashamed.

You got it, my lord.

I'm still working at the Pretzel Factory, believe it or not. I got a raise to a WHOPPING $9.25 an hour. Which is why I'm currently looking for a new job, actually. So between that, school and moving out, my schedule is pretty tight.

Also, I like how I'm number 10 with only 11 posts. I'm hoping to throw of the board and take control over it with my mind powers.


Dude, I'd kill for $9.25 right now. I'm making $7.50, and I suspect that when I go back to school and my availability drops from "unrestricted" that it will drop down to $7.25!

Though I do agree that even here, $9.25 isn't enough to live on your own comfortably.

Going for my bachelors in computer science. When I get back out in the work force with my degree, I'll likely start off at $15/hr. Jelly?

I think that my already having my BA is what makes this even more degrading. But of course, the main thing History is good for is teaching, and with no credential yet... well, you get the point.

You'd think that in an area littered with historical sites that there would be more museums that require historians... but no, just art historians, scientists, and archaeologists (paleontology preferred) for the three Carnegie Museums down in Pittsburgh. The Fort Pitt museum never seems to be hiring. I would totally make that drive every day if the pay was good enough.

I keep hearing from older family that people are just simply looking for older young adults for real jobs and people with more experience. Even with a degree, it's still damn tough to find a good job right now from what I'm hearing. Lots of people are taking up two part time jobs, companies are knocking down full timers to part time so they don't have to pay them benefits, my sister was being worked 35 hours at Target which is the ultimate max for part time. $9 an hour is not bad at all right now. Not comfortable to live off of at all, but yeah, you have to take what you can get it right now.

On that note should be hearing back on maybe three jobs this week and have a few calls to make. I recommend you guys hit up careerbuilder if you haven't and build up a nice looking good resume. It took like a month or two, but I've suddenly gotten several calls within the last week or so. You either need connections to get into jobs or just pure luck with randomly applying online everywhere, at least in my experience.

Yeah, connections help. That is how I got the job at Cabrillo... but I have no connections here, which sucks.

Oh, jeez. That blows. I can't even imagine making that right now. And your boss is an ass. Are you positive that he's going to do that?

I have no connections whatsoever. I'm just hoping that I get a call back. However, there was some promise. This is the first application I have ever filled out and felt that I actually stood a chance. I actually have something to offer. Go, Pretzel Factory!

But I still might just apply everywhere like you, Xeo. Maybe somebody will notice me.

I'm not 100% positive, but I was talking with a coworker who has been there for two years and mentioned that I make $7.50 instead of $7.25 like everyone else and he said "are you on unrestricted hours?" and I said yeah. And he told me that likely they will drop it down when I go back, which... so yeah. I'm already looking for a new job, but this makes me look harder.

So here's how we're doing.



Not sure what Katana's count is at this point or if she's keeping track, but it looks like so far we've got about 1,521 for the board.

And about 1,305 posts in total for the 8 of us.

I was just about to post that after reading the first statement of your post.

Looks like you already surpassed 300, Elara.

Yah. I died, actually. Almost. Step-dad has cancer. Near the last stage. Preparing to bury the second dad I've had in my life. Probably sounds dark, but the brightside is I was lucky enough to have someone else when the first died when I was 11. YAY!!!

Enough mood killer. I don't "prefer" any result. I just made the guidelines. This part of experimentation is just to set guidelines and see what happens. Sometime next week I'll post the full extent to what we've had here.

You guys are really fucking amazing though. Seriously.

Now don't I feel like an asshole for wondering where you went? Fuck! I'm so sorry about what's going on.
