    Fuck yeah corporate America. So i've been interviewing for all kinds of different jobs over the past several weeks. . didnt get called back for some for a 2nd interview, however I got called back for a 2nd interview for like 50% of the interviews ive been going to.

    So this one job called me for a 2nd interview and they offered me the job today. Which makes me wonder if the "grass is always greener" on the other side?? The job pays about $15,000 more than what im making now and is about 5 mins from my house. :cool:

    what sucks tho is I am happy I got this awesome job, but its more of the same "corporate" bullshit. I dont much enjoy that.

    Congrats! I wish my ex have had the patience and the humor you have shown and shared for quite sometime on here! which reminds me during our time together he became totally unbearable and paranoid with not being able to find a job that could pay him more then his previous one. If you can believe me according to him that was his reason for wanting out of the relationship!? anyway I love to hear good news, so mind you if I share them with you! best wishes and success in the new job!!

    Great good news, Import!

    Yeah, corporate sucks, but it pays the bills. Keep true too yourself and save the money. Since I lost my jobe last April and have been ekeing it out, I am glad to see somebody out there is doing well.

    Just figure out a way to make the corporate world work for you and not too much of the other way around.

    Congrats.

    yea, I definitely dont wanna sound like I'm complaining because I got the job. I worked hard to get that job and am grateful for it. But ugh!!!! The older I get the more I don't see myself working in an office from 9 to 5 everyday.

    Yes, it pays more and am grateful to be working in this "tough economy" but part of me just wants to fuck a 9 to 5 and do something cool, fun, wild, and crazy.

    Well if you aren't going to enjoy it either way, you might as well get paid more and travel less!

    yes, exactly. Acting skills is what one needs to have to work in an environment like that. It gets old and tiring. and to be honest, I couldnt be bothered to act anymore
