I met up with a guy named Chris that I shared a class with me at PBSC. He offered me a job serving Kava one mile from my house for $10 an hour plus tips. He claims it's common to make $150 in a shift... but that's the 7pm to 3am shift. I mean, I'm usually up that late anyhow. He also said that it's the kind of place that you can do homework when it's slow, which it can be midday. I'm supposed to go meet the Co-manager today for a second interview. I'd have to give up Chili's pretty much completely. I have to consider it a bit more.
I also met a guy not long ago who asked about futurism. He works for Florida's Department of Children and Families (DCF). He offered me a tentative job that would require me to move to Jacksonville and take a job working for the state making $40K a year to start (that's w/o a BA) and paying for 1/2 my credits until I graduate. Sounds pretty sweet. He explained something about politics, being that you get in by who you know and who you've worked with, not where you graduate from. He said he needs someone like me that he can bounce new ideas off who will give him straight, honest answers, stating that he really likes how I think and the way I phrase my explanations, perfect for political dealings. He has to decide on which job he's going to pursue and keep me updated. Could be something to think about for the future, right?
Things are certainly beginning to happen for me out in the background. I can feel it.
