  • Don't know if Atlanta is going to work out. I just need to get a good waitstaff job. That pays pretty good if you know how to treat people.

  • Jobs going good. I got some time and a half days over the holidays and had a real good Christmas. Staying off the booze is a struggle every day, but I am doing good.

  • Well. I am not an AC man anymore. I tried working at a garden center for a couple of weeks, but it is standing on my feet all day watering plants and unloading trucks. I don't want to do that. I am going to finish out this week and then I will start at a coffee shop next week. I wasn't cut out for manual labor. Hard work and no mental stimulation. Not for me.

  • Got into a fight with my boss on Friday and now I have no job. I'm not sure if I quit or got fired. Guess it really doesn't matter. I hated that job. But here I am at the holidays with no income. Gotta' find something soon.

  • No work. This season where you don't need AC and you don't need heat is killing me. If I don't work I don't get paid and if I don't have anything to do, I wnat to drink.
