Well, I had a job interview yesterday. It was by far the hardest interview I have had. I compared it to being in basic training and having the TI’s gang up on your during lunch, or as it is known in the Air Force, the Snake Pit. The question’s weren’t very hard that they asked, but when a few of the interviewers have put in 25+ years at this job, it’s kind of intimidating. So, now i wait to see if it’s a go or not. In the meantime, I’ll keep pushing out those applications.
I’ve stated before that I hate living in the Midwest. I’ve lived here my entire life, with the exception of my time in the Air Force. For some reason though, I don’t consider it home. For me, the southwest is home. People have asked me why I don’t just move there. If it was only that easy. My wifey has another year of school left for her bachelor’s, and I less than a year for my master’s. Maybe, and that’s a BIG maybe, we’ll move on down there and give it a try for a year or two. Of course, my main issue is family. I know as soon as we were to get down there, someone here would get sick and we’d have to travel back. My mother keeps wanting me to move to Missouri to be closer to her and my sister. I’m like ma, that’s still the Midwest.
I did photography for a few years and miss it. When i got hired on at CADS I sold all my equipment because being a supervisor and salary, I didn’t want to book a wedding or party then get called into work. My favorite part of photography was the editing and restoration of old pics. Here are a some of my pictures.
Yeah so, I sure do miss it. I’d love to start up again, but two things are stopping me. 1) Photography is a very expensive job/hobby. 2) My wife says no. lol I understand where she is coming from though. Camera’s, lighting, remotes, backdrops, website, props, extra lens’s and whatnot are not cheap.
Alright folks, back to these job apps. And do me a favor, don’t steal my pics.
