First day of work was yesterday. Apparently, only the first day of work is in the building I'll be working at in 6 weeks. For the next 6 weeks, I'll actually be training in a building that is all the way across town. Unfortunately, I can't walk there. Thankfully though, a guy from class has offered to come pick me up. That worked out pretty well. He'll be here soon, so I can't write a long entry. My walk yesterday left me with some pretty nasty blisters, but it was fun seeing if that walk was something I could do. Whelp, that's about it for now. I am so glad that I have a job now. It takes so much stress out of my life. Not only am I able to be away from everyone in the house for about a third of the day, I'm earning money for it too!
Oh speaking of earning money, I got started on Amazon's Mechanical Turk program. It's alright, but it's slow income. I can see myself devoting maybe an hour to it per day. I earned 1.34 for about 30 minutes of work yesterday. If I'm not to busy, it's something to do in my spare time. Boring as hell though, but something to do if I know just need some spending money. I'm sure if I worked a bit harder and used my resources to find more profitable HITs, I could easily bump up my earnings. I'll have to investigate.
Interesting, I just took a look at the Mechanical Turk program. I can see how that could get boring, but not a bad way to slowly earn some spending money. Is it competitive?
So glad you a guy in your class is giving you a ride, that's really nice! And saves you even more stress, yay! » Amelie

Actually, it's not competitive, but it is a first come first serve basis, so knowing about the HITs that are lucrative early on really helps.
I'm glad he gave me rides too! Thankfully, I got my car fixed last night, so everything is going great now! » Morpheus
