Sounds like a good deal Alex Arce. I agree with Paul, keep the job even if it is a few days a week. Just to have some cash flow. Because then your resume will have this gap that raises questions when employers see you trying to get back into the working class.

That's awesome about your bills ... I can only dream of that ... I haven't seen anything less than a $1K in bills since college. I don't even want to tell you what I pay ... eekks.

lol, as a Chauffeur, I sleep whenever the opportunity arises, sometimes while waiting on clients. I was just being facetious. Hell, I got 3 hours this morning, and am going back to bed in an hour or so to be fresh for tonight. Clock be damned, I just need a good dark cave to crawl into


Get Yer waders on, boys! San Antonio is floating away!

No I didn't switch to days. It basically stems down to the TX round up. That screwed my sleep up. I got so much sun that it basically told my body that I should be asleep at night. It's all a part of our internal clock. Sun exposure help you sleep good by having your body produce certain chemicals. That and keeping the day schedule for a few days killed my sleep or what good sleep I was getting. Oh and the VIP patient I had was a board member for my hospital system. Yeah he sits on the board. So he was SUPER high in the chain of command. Of course I kick @$$ so no problems.

We do say studies, but those are for night workers. Oh and I wouldn't do it our day tech would. That would be my next move up if I get promoted again. I'm not too excited about it. It's kinda of boring scoring studies. At least at night watching people I can zone out and stare of into space. Scoring I have to sit in front of the computer doing stuff...not as much fun. That and I can't watch movies or anything and whats the fun in that?
