But it's become obvious that almost NOTHING is made here anymore! So where is this country headed? What will be our economic backbone that will help us remain a world power? I see us in 50 years being a "second world" country for sure. The system is broken. Capitalism left alone will fail. Our Government is a travesty. Time for a reboot.

Work work work
Haven't posted in a while but maybe it'll stick this time. It was a combination of a boring life hence nothing to post about, and, well, that's mainly it. Working to change all that so we'll see.
So yes I took a part time job with the census in addition to my hellish full time job...$13.50/hr + 50cents/mile for any mileage incurred is a pretty good deal. Plus I'm assigned my immediate neighborhood which is pretty cool.
I also have a second interview coming up for what would amount to a third job but isn't really a job in my eyes...more on that to come.
This past week was our census training. First two days boring sitting in a room having a booklet read to us type crap but the last two days we got in teams and started practicing our enumerating! Plus we did like 9-4 every day. How nice is it to not be doing 7-5, then 1-10 the next day then 7-6 then 1-10 etc etc....I actually was getting into a sort of routine, felt better, was happier and not all stressed out about my store. Well that's over, back to the real job at 1:00 today...shoot me.
Anyway this made me realize I don't only need to get away from my current employer but out of retail altogether. I need to find a job with normal people hours but can't afford a pay cut either. Crossing my fingers.

Florida is no picnic either, I was down there twice in the last couple of months and things are kind of scary. Although my time was entirely spent in Sarasota. In the end you have to do what you have to do.
