Monday afternoon: Work!

Posting has been sparse since last week because I've been working. It feels REALLY good to be back in the workforce. I just finished my first gig (last Thursday thru today) as an actual technician, replacing motherboards in laptops. The company is giving me good training resources, so that's nice.

And I'm getting paid per unit, which I like. I guess I like the satisfaction of getting paid for my productivity. I had been under the impression that "piecework" is generally illegal under US labor law, but apparently that's not the case. Maybe it's because I'm classed as an independent contractor, I don't know.

I worked my ass off yesterday especially, but I made good money, so I'm really stoked. I've got another gig coming up on Sunday and Monday, and between now and then I have a bunch of piddly chores to take care of (taxes, car, etc.).

More posts coming here soon.
