Happenings: I’ve experienced them.
I haven’t be updating regularly, at all, but changes are up ahead for me.
I have a new job! Today’s my last day at the cruise company. Next Monday I will begin anew at a furniture company order processing. They do business furniture. Doesn’t sound like it will involve a lot of phone crap. Better yet, the orders come from businesses, not the general public. Farewell, customer service. I will not miss you. Hello, salaried position with benefits at a small office. It’ll be 35,000 a year, so not a lot of money, but my supervisors [at the cruise company] are acting as though it’s making a shitton of money, as though I wasn’t making about that much the first year at this company. Let’s all agree that it’s only enough to keep one person with a wage that’s above just-getting-by.
Guys, I’m going to be able to pay down my debts. Save money. It’ll take a few years, I know. But this is insane.
I'm doing okay with my word count, but only about 450/day, which I plan to hike up over the next four days I'm not working.
