Not making a whole lot of progress as of yet on the New Year goals. Heck, it’s been almost two weeks since I wrote that stuff and I think I’ve ran once. Blame it on the New England weather I guess. Oh, and the fact that they are tearing up our gym at work and moving it to the band room. I should just join a gym, but disposable income is not what I have a lot of these days.
So far, the first two weeks of school have been okay. If you don’t know, I am going back to school to broaden my horizons a bit and focus on my post Army career just in case things don’t start going my way in the weight department and I have to find a new job circa August 7, 2009. I was offered a job in Salt Lake City this past week, though the report date was a bit soon and it wasn’t a promotion. Plus, I would be in the same boat come August, so it probably wouldn’t be a good move for me. If they’d give me another month, I would probably take it though. I can’t afford to live here anymore and if I am going to take an entry-level accounting job somewhere, it will have to be at about 75% of my current income. Not really likely here.
Supposedly, the bonus I was recommended for at work got approved this year, and if it is, I should see it with my next paycheck. A bonus is nice, but they could save themselves about $1000 and just promote me instead. That doesn’t look too promising either, if only because our higher headquarters are broken beyond repair. They claim being short-staffed and over-worked, yet the three pending applications I have with them have been sitting there for at least three months. The should just fill the positions already, or re-advertise them so people can apply. I don’t think I would have a problem working in Pittsburgh.
I interviewed with H&R Block on Friday for a part-time thing during tax season. Help me get some exposure to taxes, or at least more than I already have. I thought it went good, and it sounded like they are hiring a bunch of people, so hopefully I will hear something tomorrow. I guess we will see. If it does happen, then I may be in a little bit better shape financially, but at the cost of my free time. But it is only for four months, so it won’t be that bad I suppose. Not that I do anything productive in my free time anyway…
