On the doak job update. I am about 95% sure I will be taking the Sr Tech Job overnight. The shift differential seems to be a sure thing (though, it's still unofficial until they confirm that). It'll be a big change, but I think long term it'd be good for me and my career.

Somewhat unrelated, I had an interview today about 40 minutes away from my house. I do love where I work, but all things being equal, I think I'd prefer to have at least some social interaction on a weekly basis. I'm not crazy about that commute (especially when my commute is currently 0), but, if they are willing to pay what I'm asking it's something I'd have to take under consideration. Evidently the lack of tech jobs in the area also leads to a lack of tech skill. Evidently they had been interviewing for 6 weeks for this job and he was very excited about my resume. He asked things about "How much would it cost for us to get you", and "When we saw your resume we wanted to bring you in right away". It'd be internal sys admin work, which is a big upgrade from a customer facing role, and company seems like its growing in the right direction. It's a corporate environment which would be a huge change for me. Probably my first time in a real corporate environment since I left my first job in 2007.

Sounds promising, Doak. Good luck!

I have an interview on Wednesday. It would be a decent or better raise if I get it. Plus it would be closer to where we're hoping to end up buying a house.

Everyone's getting interviews and sells. I got my job as produce stocker at Tops. Not bad seeing I do college and needed something, and two of my friends already work there in the same department as well.

Interviewing at a grad farm research firm. Hoping not to come across as desperate as I am.

I have a friend on FB that has just posted NINE CONSECUTIVE pictures of her at a wedding. Not an album, but nine separate photos, all with different captions, AND HASHTAGS. My news feed is only that right now until I finally scroll down far enough to get away from it.

And it's not the first time.

I almost want to de-friend out of principle, if it wasn't someone I've known IRL for like 15 years and I'd legit feel bad about it.

For people like that you don't have to defriend them, Just unsubscribe from her updates.

That's awesome, Chain. You guys are like Revolution Road, but with a happy ending.

What's the school situation for the kids? I found private schools down there to be on the expensive side.

Less expensive than my school taxes here in WNY. They run from January-December with some long breaks. Let me snag the details from my wife and I'll shoot you a PM.

In other words, not like Revolutionary Road at all?

I mean, I love me some Mendes and I liked that movie, but it's pretty depressing from front to back. Away We Go might be a better choice if you're looking for a happy story/ending from a Mendes movie

You are good about posting pictures. Usually it's just some randoms and then the rest are in an album. Albums are much more feed-friendly.

My facebook rule is pretty hard and fast (heh heh). We have to have met to be my friend. My only two exceptions are AV18 and OldGoalie. The reason for that is that with both of them, we've had conversations outside of HFB that are closer to friendships than some people I've actually met.

And they're cool.

This rule would exclude me, which automatically makes it a terrible rule.

Then again I don't have Facebook, so carry on.

Thanks. You're pretty cool, too.

Also, I've been back for two years now. Sooner or later we should meet.
