Happy Saturday fine folks!
Spending day with S.O. We had our come to Jesus meeting this morning and got our feelings out. Plans have been modified — He’s found out about an opening in his area that’s a $20k annually raise. He’s got a good chance at getting it because of connections in the area.
Although I lived in Valdosta for eight years, it’s not a place I want to live again. However, if S.O. gets that job, I’m going to relocate. I mean, I’ve been here for three years now and I’m kind of stuck in a rut. Haven’t made many really good friends, and the cost of living is higher. Haven’t found better job.
He’ll put in a good word with his current employer and try to get me in there — slight pay cut, but it’s got PTO and holidays, whereas I currently dont have PTO and have to stay late and make up time because I’m technically a ‘temp’, but not really. My job classification (other personel services aka OPS) was originally designed as a temp job, but it saved the state so much money, they were classifying not temp jobs as OPS. I mean, I do get insurance and a mandatory retirement account, where 7% of my paycheck goes. But no PTO. If I miss work, I have to make it up by staying late/coming in early (thanks Slick Rick).
Working in state government made me care who the governor is.
So, the plan is now, whoever of us gets the better job, we’ll good-word the other one into our previous position. Then relocate.
