The Day Before Christmas
I finally got all my typing done from like the last three days. It came out to four scenes I think, or something like that. And, most of this post will probably be dedicated to catching up my stats. But, I wanted to talk a little bit about good news.
I will no longer be employed by PTI on Wednesday December 26th 2012. I am happy about this, namely because this company has royally screwed me (and all of its employees) over. That doesn’t change the fact that I enjoyed the job, what did change was the rate of pay. Prior to Dec or Nov 7th (can’t remember which) PTI was paying us a guaranteed amount of money per week, that way, if we didn’t have a lot of runs that week we would still be able to make a living off of it. Now, mind you the guarantee wasn’t a great deal of money ($350 per week), but it’s a whole hell of a lot better than I’ve made on the last two paychecks. Both of which, for two weeks worth of work, were well below the $350 mark. So, yeah, a man can’t provide for his family when he’s barely scraping in $200 dollars. That situation, and a couple of others, that I don’t want to discuss in a public forum, made me decide it was time to find a new job.
I did find a new job, one at the McDonalds in Logan WV. It’s another minimum wage, dead end job, but it’s guaranteed five days a week and at least thirty-two hours a week. I’ve worked at McDonalds before, and I’m not sure if that guarantee is going to pan out or not. But, fear not, I’m going to keep looking for a job, hopefully one that I can call a career, and if that falls through, then I’m going to go back to school and get a degree in counseling or something. I have some vested interest in the field of mental health, so counseling might be right up my alley.
As for Cold Lunch and my stats I typed four scenes today: 17, 18, 19, and 20. 17 was 2 hand written pages long, 5 typed pages, and 1,220 words long. 18 was 2 hand written pages long, 5 typed pages, and 1,257 words long. 19 was 3 hand written pages long, 5 typed pages, and 1,388 words long. 20 was 3 hand written pages, 5 typed, and 1,307 words long.
And, yeah, that is progress ladies and gentlemen.
Now, I’m going to get out of your hair.
What are you doing the day before Christmas?
