Ok, so I talked to Julie at the Lucky today, and she told me that there might be a spot for me at the Lucky on Airport. So, that'd be cool, just for a bit here and there... But I think in order to make it worthwhile (because if they hired me today, I could only really work for 6 weeks, what with shows and the like...) I'd have to offer to stay over the summer. And... well, At first, I was all gung-ho about the idea, you know, my own place, my own job, volunteer on weekends or whatev....

Then I got thinking about it. He won't be offering me the minimum $12/hour I'd be getting at the factory (closer to $14 if they put me in weigh-up again...), and he probably won't be able to give me 40 hours/week + overtime, which I'm guarenteed at Richardsons, and, though I'll have to pay rent anyways up here, I don't have to pay rent/food/hydro/internet at home. Plus, Richardsons is putting in an Expansion, which means that there's definalty going to be work...I'm walking back into that job, no questions asked.

I mean, I'd love live alone, but that's coming fast enough. I'll be living on my own (hopefully) for the next 2 years, and depending on what happens after next year's placement, I might even have a real job up here soon. I just... I don't know.

And, to be honest, I'm really kinda nervous about getting another job... But I don't really want to talk about that now. I'll wait until tomorrow, after I've discussed it with this Dr. King guy... See what he says.

That's pretty much it for now. I have class in a half hour, and I'm kinda peckish, so I should make some lunch. Urg... I hate money.

One way or another, you'll figure it all out. These things have a funny way of coming together, even when we're utterly convinced they won't. Do what works for you and what makes you happy. And don't hesitate to ask us if you need some help, a shoulder, an ear - whatever. I mean, I'd like my ear and shoulder back at some point - useful for holding up my glasses and backpack, respectively - but I'm happy to lend them out. ;)
