Been taking a hiatus from the lounge as of late. Started with needing to figure **** out and focus on work and money with the whole baby thing. And lately its just been... I don't know, a break? Anyway, about a month ago she had a miscarriage. So things just sort of worked out. Work is going like ****. I'm still not making money. I'm making more decent hours more often(last week was only 18 hours, the week before was 36 though, this past week was about 34 I believe). I've really been growing to like what I do. I learn more and more all the time, and almost wish to continue being an auto tech, I just need money. It has really taken the same attitude I had when I started doing the job, namely, **** IT!! Just do the task at hand and make money off of it. Did a torque converter on a Montero that I took a bath on a few weeks ago, but I learned a bunch about monteros, so that was good. That fabrication thing seems to have fallen through. I tried contacting him twice, both times he never returned the calls. I called him a while back and he said he was all ready to go and just had to line up some customer jobs that he had waiting. Then didn't hear anything for a month. Called, no response. Called again, still no response. So I'm Lost at Sea at the moment. Ha... EDIT: Oh and thanks to all you guys who offered advice and help with all the troubles I've had.
