The search as ended, for now at least. I have found employment with a reverse mortgage company called AAG in their accounting department. The pay is less than I was wanting, but times are tough and in this economy you take what you can get, for the time being. I had been interviewing with another company for a position that was higher paying, and more than a bit more desirable, but that fell through in the 11th hour. I won't go into the details of what happened, but needless to say I was screwed over, yet again, by my past employer. Luckily, I somewhat had this other position with AAG in my back pocket.
Although the pay isn't much more than I was making before with Fastech, I will say that the working conditions are leaps and bounds beyond what I have been experiencing the last 3 years. I genuinely like the people I work with and the controller here is very friendly. They seem to be really happy that I will be working there and I can tell already that they will be happy with the work I do. The past couple weeks I have had more good days at work than I have the last couple years. Thats always a good sign, right?
I would like to thank everyone who was praying for us in our time of need. Thanks to all those prayers, what we thought would be a really difficult time ended up being like more of an extended unpaid vacation for me (trust me that my mind was not viewing it as this at the time).
As for the storm trooper picture, it mostly made me laugh, but it also reminded me of how I felt every day after work at Fastech. Enjoy
Sidenote: This summer's new music has more than lived up to expectations so far. I have been rocking the following albums a lot lately.
1. Bon Iver - Bon Iver
2. August Burns Red - Leveler
3. Unearth - Darkness in the Light
4. Set Your Goals - Burning at Both Ends (still not totally into this one)
5. Nick 13 - Nick 13
