Hi everyone, I have more good news to share with you, though this is news of a personal sort. I will be starting a new job come this Sunday!
I'll be working at the same place as my father at Amazon.com as a warehouse associate. Actually I'll be working as a temp through a staffing agency, but my work is guaranteed to at least the end of the holidays. There's a really high chance though that I'll be converted into an "Amizonian" though. As of now Amazon isn't even accepting applications for the position and my dad tells me they're converting SMX people like crazy. So my chances are good.
I'll be working 4 10 hour shifts a week, so no time for MOCing on a work day.
but hey I'll be making $13.50 an hour, so that'll be nice.
This is honestly the best job opportunity I've ever had, so I'm very excited about it. My dad also says this is the nicest job he's ever had to, and he's been working for like a zillion years in the warehouse industry, so that's saying something. The even cooler aspect is once peak hits, we'll have to work mandatory overtime. That'll suck cause we're being worked to death, but making time and a half equals out to $20.25 an hour is pretty damn good pay when you're used to minimum wage like my family is.
Then I think we make double time for the last two hours, unless that's only the amazonians. if that's the case my pay would go up to $27 for the last two hours.
This might be my only chance to immaturely go "Haha I make more money than you"
so I'm going to take it.
Okay, now that I've got the excited gloating out of my system, I'll get on to why I'm bothering to tell any of you this stuff. Well basically, it means my buddies over in the groups flashing next to this writing in the side bar will be responsible for maintaining order and civility, but also because I'll finally have some $$$ to throw around. That means I'll be able to commission a few people I've wanted to commission, maybe put up some prizes for contests in the groups, make at least the BML a Super Group and generally just return some of the love
(and iron fisted domination)
that the community has given me. I hope to at least. Its in the plans. If you know anything about me, you know plans of mine hardly work out. But
As for MOCing, its probably going to slow to a crawl, and I'll have to hit up Alex-Darkrai
and a few other slow-progress MOCers I know of on advice about how to get a MOC done over a long period of time. But seeing as how I'll be raking in so goddamned much money, and able to keep it(except for taxes) since I don't have many expenses, I can put some of my hard earned pay towards getting parts on a whim, which means quite a few projects on my "needs funding" to-do list can finally
be crossed off. And who knows, assuming I'll be able to keep my job past the holidays, I definitely wanna put into ABS a few big projects I have in mind, and who knows, maybe along with Bionicle 2015 will see the return of one of its most well known and beloved MOCs.
Only time will tell...
My dad's got a new stable job, and that's improved the mood of my household tremendously, and now it looks like I'm on my way to getting a good job to, 2014 has started off pretty rough for us here, but it's improved a lot over the last two months.
Thanks for reading my gloaty rambly junk about my personal life. And thank you all for the support.
