Busy Busy Busy

I have been very busy lately and obviously haven't posted in a while. If it wasn't for the wife there wouldn't have been any posts up here since WOW February 5th. (I just looked to see the last time I posted).

Lots has happened in the past month so I will give you all a small update on what has been happening.

Last you heard from me much of the discussion was the stupid job crap that was going on. And really none of that has changed. But other things have been added or are going to be added that has made me pretty busy.

Let's start with the current job.

Our office is changing in the next few months and in May the entire office is moving its physical location. And there are some of us that will be separated and will no longer work together. That doesn't really matter much to me since I will be staying in pretty much the same position but part of a bigger group.

Right now there are about 10 of us in my section and that will probably turn into like 50 or something like that by the end of May.

Unfortunately the move is not going to help my career as far as stability or income which sucks. But what are you gonna do. There are worse things in life I guess.

Now let's move on to my job prospects.

I recently applied to be a IRS Agent and so far everything has gone well and I should be getting an interview in the coming weeks/months. I aced the assessment test and am listed in the top of the applicants for the position. The advantage here is that this area is considered hard to fill and could come with a nice signing bonus. Which would be helpful to me.

I am not certain I would take the position but more than likely I would. It wouldn't require much (if any) travel, which I hate right now, and it would be more secure and would pay more. I am excited about that and just hope that I actually get an interview.

Now onto my extra curricular activities.

I took a part time (20 hours a week) with a Internet start up company called It is an online selling site that is getting started up and if you want you can come check it out. It is free to buy and sell items on the site so if you like to sell on eBay this site will be cheaper.

Basically I am doing a 12 week training course on Internet marketing while spreading their name across the web and doing some networking. After the 12 weeks (which ends in May) there is a chance that I could be kept on permanently to do Internet marketing, blog writing, and article writing. So I am pretty excited about that.

And it is a paid position so it really helps me make my bills.

More extra stuff.

I also am going to be writing for a local community newspaper starting with their June issue. I could have started sooner but with the netSpray stuff I didn't want to get too much on my plate. I will contributing to the sports section of the paper doing interviews and stories with and about local sports personalities.

That I am really excited about and can't wait to get started. It also pays a little per article so that works too.

So as you can see I have been pretty busy over the past month and that is the main reason why this site is not updated to much. On top of the stuff mentioned above I have my other 2 sites Hershey Bears Hockey and Jumping Offsides that I have been writing regularly on. And just this past weekend Verb and I started to discuss local sports teams and news in the area.

I hope to continue writing here from time to time but it will not be with too much frequency. Hopefully anyone who still reads this keeps coming back and reading.
