damn.. I wish I was in a position to help. I guess I am in a way but I have been so focused the last 3 to 4 years on eliminating all my debts and buying a house it has kept me in a state of "no disposable income poverty" (not real poverty mind you....)
rin:
yay! i am very happy you have returned.

Well my dear friends. This weekend has been pretty uneventful. Yesterday consisted of going to 77 and having wakeangel do my moms hair. Thank you so much Michael. Calvin and I really appreciate all the time you put into that. Afterwards Calvin and I dropped mom off at Jakes to have dinner with her boyfriend. Then we proceeded home and entertained ourselves by cleaning up...

It's been well over a month since my last post. After all this time of having my sg account we're finally get dsl at my place of space. You see it's been at my boyfriend's dads house this whole time. We've even been officially living together for the past year and still no internet at home. Now as of January...

Damn it, I'm going to be in Hillsboro having dinner with old family friends. These things never work out. But I Myspace friended you, and we will keep in touch, and you will come to our next party. I really want to hang out with you more, I don't know why it's never worked...
venice:
Mm, that was a good point. I'll see what time I get back. I don't have to work on Monday, so if I get back in time I'll come.

Realizing I was vague with that last post. I am to say, I quit Mallard Landing. That job was crap anyway. Although I'm deathly poor now. I realized how much a secretary gets paid at the hospital. I've always wanted to do secreterial work. Just never had any oppurtunites. Even looking around on the internet. I don't know where to look. I...

i came!!!

i posted in sgpdx...
...i'm home now frown
bridgetwnpeddler:
I used to feel the same as you regarding holiday's.... but as I got older I came to value those things I used to dismiss. I do not know the intimacies of your familial relationships but if they are not completely disasterous/abusive I suspect there will come a time when you will value that time as much as I do now.

In the meantime the doubletime at work and not having to hassle with things is not so bad either. smile

It's time to get serious about finding a new job. I'm no longer a caregiver. I didn't care for that type of work anyways. But I know I definitely can't afford working only at Safeway. I'd be living off of $10-20 a week after bills. Ouch! I've already applied at Macy's and Best Buy (I'll take what...

Wamu didn't hire me. It's okay though, the lady that interviewed me is putting a good word in for me at the human resources office. Very excited about that, most def.

Put in an application at Riverview Community Bank. Need to check in at IQ Credit Union. Good grief, I want that banking job so bad I can taste it. A little bit...

Finding a new job always sucks. Best of luck to you.
bridgetwnpeddler:
Job search is going okay so far. Two interviews so far, one I am really interested in (even if they did move the dang job from downtown portland to vancouver.. uggghhh) and one I am not sure how interested I am in it.

I spammed out the resume to 6 other jobs yesterday so I am going to sit and see if any of those come back anytime soon.

yeah I made good money before that is for sure. I do not need to make that much again but I probably need to make at least 74K at a minimum. Even at that I would be keeping my eyes out for something a bit better or with a better bonus.

Wow, forever and a day ago I posted.

Today I have a job interview with Washington Mutual, that's right bitches WAMU! SO wish me luck because I'm tired of my job and want out of it so bad!

I've really wanted to work at a bank for awhile now. It's time to get started. Also Lacamas Credit Union, (which is only...

Hmm... I don't know if you have it or not. missmyla at gmail dot com
bridgetwnpeddler:
here anything from WAMU yet? I hear they are expanding big time in Bend also. Nothing on my job front yet.

I know I can find a job I am not worried about that. The key is can I find one that pays me enough to cover the new house I bought. I could sell my car but since it is a convertible I would have to wait till about April to June to sell it and get the best money for it.

Sigh...

I made too much at my last job. I did a good job of using that to pay off a lot of bills... but I ramped them all up again to buy the house. Oh my.. I am going to miss the 92K I was up to this year!!

Oh my god, it's been since the beginning of July since my last update!

Wow. Last time I was on here I was going to get a hotel reservation for the beach. That was for my anniversary, and let me tell you. Four years together, this anniversary was amazing! We spent a weekend at the beach, away from everyone we know and our day...

welcome back!! smile

don't buy a new car... no...no...no. you want to be trapped in two job hell forever? You have not liked that ever since you have been on SG!!

If you must get another car, the Mazda 3 is a nice bet. But get one about 2 years old. Let someone else pay for the new car deprecation and you can get one much cheaper and still under warranty.

Really that is the way to do it darling.
missmyla:
It was nice seeing you last Friday! smile

Today was fun. Calvin and I went to the beach. Do you guys realize it's only like an hour from Portland. Jesus! Anywho, our anniversary is coming up at the end of the month. We needed to rent a hotel and just get out and enjoy life. Working two jobs is frustrating and depressing and consuming. When I have free time it's usually...

Yeah, sorry I missed you at Berbati's. I didn't really have any plans and ended up having dinner with friends when I thought it would be at most a drink or two. I doubt I will be at Sinferno much anymore, unless there is a holiday the next day. It is too damn hard for me to get my ass up in the morning. whatever
d23:
i will come visit soon


much silliness will ensue

The 4th of July was fun. I worked at both jobs making time and a half at the old folks place. While at Safeway it was double time and a half. Woot! Woot!

I can't wait for that paycheck.

It was good seeing a few of you kids.

Can I just say... I'm not sure if I like the new outline of the website. I haven't been on in a few days, but this is just weird.

Maybe I'm just not hip.

How is everyone doing?

Edit to say:

I just applied for a new job! Let's see how long it takes me to get it. Applying for the...

Hey good luck getting that job. Weren't you kids supposed to come out last night? *stands there tapping his foot impatiently*. It was a good night at Sinferno. There were snakes and Germany did a fire show. Oh, and to answer your question, I'm just peachy. I'm having a hard time with the new setup as well. But I'm not very web savy so, eh.
