    Ah. It was good experience but they couldn't give me the raises they were promissing because of the economy. Place won't be around next year I'm pretty sure. I bailed.

    This new job is working on a pipe line. I just talked to the guy and he is trying to get me in a somewhat supervisory position that starts at $27 an hour instead of $17 an hour. Yay college. Will talk to him tomorrow after I go take my piss test.

    72 hours a week kind of sucks, but I'm not doing shit else. Might as well be making money.

    Oh, nice work you do realise that you should be the one designing that pipeline not building it though.

    Wish I was an engineer :(

    If he does manage to get me the position with the pumping crews(the $27 an hour job) where they help manage the other crews, that will be $2,800 a week :eek3:

    If not I figure I can still live on $1760 a week :x:

    But to be fair it is like working 2 jobs, its 6x12 hour days and it's hard to get time off. This job will run through early January.

    The only upside is it will be fun to see how you fuck this one up. You were able to blow through $60k with the quickness at that last place. Excited to see this one!

    When does this job start vs. when you are fighting?

    With that work schedule you aren't going to have a lot of time to train.

    Much less feel like it, it's going to be a very physical job.

    I'll be able to manage 2 or 3 days a week with a boxing instructor I found in Jackson I'm starting with Monday. But still, we are 3 weeks out from the fight. There isn't to much that can change from how I am now. I'm in decent shape. Nothing great but better than I normally am for just not training for a fight.

    Actually you can change quite a bit in 3 weeks.

    and You really think you're going to train 2 or 3 days a week while working 6 12's?
