|12:43 am - work is for jerks|
i got a job! i think. a "youth and family counselor", which apparently means i hang out with challenged kids in maine. york and/or sanford, so i would be commuting i guess. it's $9/hr while i'm a trainee, and after 3 months or 300 hours i graduate to a real person and get $9.25/hr with benefits. it's not for reals counseling though, that's just the fancy title i get. it's more like i'm the guy who hangs around the place making sure hte kids are getting along and taking care of themselves
and julie informs me there is a similar place that's in dover and pays 10/hr. so i guess i will investigate that.
and i have an interview at the NE center on wednesday. to be a "pantry worker" which sounds unthrilling. but free NE center food would make me :-D though i would feel like a bastard choosing food for myself over helping kids
state: no longer useless
np: mr t experience - love is dead - i'm like yeah but she's all no

your icon makes me want to seduce you.
my dad used to be the NE Center's executive chef; the kitchen there is enormous. You'd have fun there. Screw the kids...I will take your job.
their kitchen is crap compared to holloway's. the guy said that all their equipment is old and crappy and breaking, but holloway gets all the cash money bling and new equipment and stuff. even though they are way fancier and do all the big conventions and shit
i listened to that emf cd a little. it was pretty good. when we get hooked up to dsl ill have to send it to you, id do it now but im usuing aol so it would take about a weeks time to send one song.
thanks for the message you left me last night. i miss living in the mansion. i hope you and kevin will visit again soon! dinosaur misses you.

that sounds awesome! congrats!
thanks! i had a 2nd interview today, it went really well i think. someday i will actually be employed by someone, instead of just driving around to talk to them..
hang out with challenged kids in maine
I did that one summer!!! let me tell you, after a few weeks of that you'll find out that *you* are the one that's being challenged.
They better be paying you major $$$, Tiger, because otherwise you come home at the end of the summer with a few measly hundred in your pocket saying "WTF??"
Not that I want to discourage you or anything. My job was sleep-away camp in Washington, Maine: kids around 24/7. Let me tell you, that puts a real damper on romance unless you have access to a car or sneak out skinny dipping late at night which is a tad nippy up in Maine.
When will you know which job you're taking?
eh sorry if I sounded bitchy. It's late*, I'm tired, and you go have fun and make sure you post lots to tell us how you and the kids are doing.
As long as it isn't sleep-away you should do fine.
haha you didn't sound bitchy. sounded like it was something you tried and didn't like it and you were telling me how it went for you. which i appreciate. god knows i'm terrible at anticipating how things will go, on my own
it isn't sleep-away. well, once a week it is, but that doesn't really count. i get to go home when i'm done each day
i had my 2nd interview with the maine folks today, it went really well i think. i imagine i'll be going with them, but we'll see. from waht they said, this place isn't quite as i had been told/imagined. they're trying to make it as much like a home as possible, so it's not some crappy regimented hospital, and there's only 4 kids and they are not intensely messed up, just a bit maladjusted
it's paying 9.25/hr, which isn't astounding, but not terrible. apparently i will be getting my 40hrs/wk over 3 days, most weeks. which is scary, but 4 days off sounds nice. and one of those 3 days will be an overnight, so i will be getting paid to sleep. sleeping rules!
i wouldn't be like living there or anything though, so my romance will not be dampered any more than a regular job would. not that i have any romance to damper at the moment, but hey
