Just got a call from a computer shop I applied to on a whim last week. I was looking more for a second job type of deal, but they ended up offering me full time, a possible management position in a year and a half and to run the business (all depends on my dedication, really) in 5-7 years. They're offing me a full $1 more per hour than I'm making at OfficeMax, annual raises and once I get to a management position it will be something like $15 with chances for more if I can make myself become "indispensable." I don't know what the **** I did to deserve this sort of good karma, but I'm latching onto it like a fat kid on a cupcake.
Onward and upward
