    It has finally happened. I just got an email confirming that I will be leaving for training at the end of this week.

    I've got my benifits package sent to me also.

    I'll be training in Maryland for 3 weeks, come back home for 3 or 4 days then fly out to Saudi.

    Its been a very drama filled 4 months dealing with trying to get this job. Its also been very stressful because I had no money or a car and was basicly being supported by my girlfriend. I had applied for other jobs durring this time seeing if anything would come through just so I could start making some money but the job market is rough in the south east for a Marketing major.

    I can't wait to start. :hs:

    He is going to work in Saudi Arabia for awhile.

    They shafted him in the visa and passport process.

    Now he got it, hes not a douche so he felt bad for mooching off his girlfriend. Hot girlfriend.

    ,

    Hunt Vally so right near you.

    Where do you train.

    And it was a lot more than just the visa process, that was just the quick easy answer.

    Its a super long and complicated story that involves mergers, policy changes, family working for the company trying to hook me up, and old managment that didn't want to hire me.

    That and they took forever on my visa.

    I'm not positive. I assume so because I will be there several times a year.

    I just bought a new digi cam to document my trips. I got a Casio Exilim 7.2 mega pixel. My only complaints are that the screen resolution isn't great so to really see how good the picture looks you have to put it on the computer. I also tried the video function and it was kinda choppy which was disappointing.

    They also had a sale on 2 gig SD cards for 20 bucks so I bought one of those too.

    This is the first digi cam I've ever had so I've been snapping photo's of stuff.

    This was my graduation present from my Aunt and Uncle(the one that got me this job).

    To say they are loaded is an understatement. My parents are lower middle class so I'm not used to anything like that. I just about died when they gave me the watch. I felt guilty for some reason.

    Now I'm fine with it and like to look balla.
