Was at a job interview the other day regarding a full time job as a mail man. Despite that they kept saying I was over qualified for the job and that I should try and find something more "exciting", and despite the fact that they didn't have a job for me in the district I was looking for, I got a letter today saying that I could get a job there if I want it.

Yay! tongue.gif

So I'm probably gonna take it untill I find something that pays a little better.

cool.gif cool.gif cool.gif cool.gif

Cool thing is that you can walk around listening to music while you deliver the mail...

Haha, I'll try not to smile.gif

If something better comes along (actually this was one of the first job applications I sent and haven't gotten any answers from some others I sent regarding "better" jobs (payment)), so there might just pop something else up mean while.

Well, the mail man job here will give me enough money to pay bills, rent for apartment etc, so it's all good. It probably won't allow to much money to be put aside to buy new gear - but then I could always get an extra job, search for another job (I've sent some applications for phone sales man, which gives a little more a month) or put some of that in my wish list for christmas wink.gif

Ooofa I just got my first real full time job, full benefits and such. Can't say I've ever been more bummed. No time to play guitar, no motivation to play guitar, and not enough money to buy gear! Wtf mate

Haha, that reminds me of when I went to Junior High biggrin.gif The last semester we could decide ourselves what to do in the gym classes. The most of the people chose to play football or just went playing around, but I chose jogging because I could listen to music while doing so tongue.gif

Yes, that's exactly what I'm thinking too. A chance to listen to more music than I do these days as well as free exercise.

It's almost exclusively up and down stairs though, and with an old football injury I'm not too sure it's all too good. But I'll take the job and see how it goes. If it turns out to be bad for my knee, I'll just quit and find another job.

I'm at my girlfriends house at the moment, and I've been spending money big time going back and forth from job interviews, so I'm all out of money for the right tools as for now. sad.gif I might see if I can dig up some money from somewhere during the next couple of weeks to get it done.
