As some of you might already know I've been job hunting recently. Looking for a Full Time job that has opportunity for advancement and benefits, since my current job, despite being in the industry I'm going to school for, lacks all of these.

Welp, after 2 interviews and a few online tests, I was just given an offer today to work for an IT outsourcing company. It's a modest pay raise from my current rate, salary, but it comes with full time employment, lots of room for advancement (one of the guys I interviewed with had jumped to nearly the top of the company in 5 years since he started), full benefits, and the opportunity to learn, practice on, and implement real enterprise level networking equipment. The biggest plus however in all of this is that they are completely flexible with their schedules such that I can continue taking classes without them interfering with my work schedule.

All in all I'm super stoked. But, since I am currently at the office I can't let myself get carried away. Now starts the unpleasant part of all of this: filing my termination notice....

So have a drink! They're on me... in a metaphysical kind of way.....

After seven weeks of horribly boring free time, I'm finally starting my second term in university next week. Not sure how happy other people would be about that, but I really love what I'm doing. :D

I just got a call from my boss and was told that I have a snow day off tomorrow. (O_o) I didn't think things like that really happened. I was pretty sure our company policy was more along the lines of 'Through rain, through sleet, through snow... You shall get your ass to work even if you have to goddamn teleport, and don't even THINK of calling in 'sick' unless you're dying.'

So for the past week, I've been attending an Air Force Non-Commissioned Officer Academy (which is weird for me since I'm Army), but in my class, we have a guy from the Japanese Self Defense Air Force (JSDAF) also attending with us and tomorrow we're having a push-up competition. So the following convo takes place between myself and the JSDAF guy:

Me: So what's up dude, how many push-ups are you going to do? Hyaku? (100?)
JSDAF: Hyaku? How 'bout Fa-Kyu!
Me: I totally just got burned in engrish... lol

I honestly didn't expect him to have a snappy response with his broken english and I think he was rather pleased that I got his joke, so we each had a good laugh :up:

I am an awesome cook. But for all the things I can make, for some reason, I have never been able to make meatballs. Which is stupid. All the people I've known who aren't very good at cooking have been able to make meatballs. Which makes me feel even more stupid about not being able to do it. Well, last night, I finally (almost) successfully made meatballs. And the things that went wrong can very easily be fixed. *^_^* (Didn't bake for long enough and simmered for TOO long.)
