Some of you guys sound like hens clucking. beotch beotch beotch lol. Anyway for my part, I'm very glad to be out of Cali, next step is to convince my wife to quit her job, she's making too damned much money and that's why we've been stuck there for so long. Eventually she'll choose me over the job. Hopefully sooner rather than later. As far as Austin goes, let me tell you it ain't Cali even if it's still not the heart of Texas. This is where i got a job, and a damned good one at that. I'm the project surveyor for a job in downtown on the river, it's supposed to last another year. I'm in talks with several other outfits, none of which are in Austin, so when the time comes I'll slip seamlessly out of these 90 square miles of weirdness and into reality. Probably CC or possibly San Antonio. For now, I'm happy as a clam at high tide.
Oh yeah the details: week before last I decided to spam my resume out to Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, and Texas. I had palnned to interview with most of the people who called me back, I was going to go to Austin, Houston, CC, San Antonio, Salt Lake, Missoula, and Sidney. I came here first to kick off the tour, and they made it too frikken sweet to pass. None of the other companies would have been able to come anywhere near this offer, so I took it and no regret. I was hired within hours of getting off the plane on Monday. Next day I piss-tested and found a house, on Wed I started work. I have a company F250, a sweet laptop, and a real bright future. Need to find time to fly back to San Diego, see my wife, get my car, some guns & fishing gear, and drive back.
