A Happy Day

Postby Douglas Harrison » Mon Sep 13, 2010 4:27 pm

Phew, my unemployment has ended: I found work with a local company as a trucker. I am crediting the good vibes from my friends (some unmet) and my steady-as-granite family.

Congratulations, Doug! Terrific news!
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

When can I expect you to come down here and start treating me in the manner to which I'd like to become accostomed to?

Congrats on the Job!

Mazel tov, Doug
Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristrocratic forms. No gov't in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, gov't tends more and mroe to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class

Gee, Steve, when you love your work, every day is like a vacation.

Driving a flatbed is a physical job, but I like active and varied work. Already, I've driven to Washington State and back, and I'll be hauling in BC, Alberta, Oregon, and possibly Idaho and Saskatchewan, too. A trainer is with me for three weeks, and after that I'll be on my own.

Truck driving (and loading and unloading) consumes much of my week and has reduced my online time considerably. Still, I feel I'll always have a spot here to return to, a little cabin on the Net. I'm sorry if I haven't kept the yard up.

Spring is near, I think.

Trust me; a job is so important. For money and (for some people) self worth and satisfaction, as well. Take it from someone who's underemployed. There's a reason why I haven't been around here as much as I've wanted to these last few years.

Duane, how about becoming a hiking guide? You could make big money.

A hiking guide provides great job satisfaction, but very little in monetary compensation. Unless I'm one of the increasing number of "Ultra-" something-or-others. Ultrarunner, ultramounteverestclimber, etc.

Actually, I view my outdoor activities as a (frequent) escape from the madness of the real world. If it were to become my real world, it would probably lose luster.

Ugh, when posting in the "Science Vs Religion" thread yesterday, I discovered I am more than a little rusty. Most of what I've written online and off in the last couple of years has been brief, and my syntax, grammar, and structure have suffered. I should've known the bike would have flat tires.

However, I am not discouraged. It's better for a relatively solitary person like me to contribute something than to be out of the conversation altogether.
