I gotta job I gotta job  
As the subject says, I got a job :D Finally, I was getting worried a bit!

I now work for Terra Firma Equipment! They seemed really nice, a really small office. They basically created a position for me cause they really liked me! I start at $20/hour! Yay :D Which was cool, cause they were only going to start the position I applied for at $15/hour.

So I might be able to get a new computer after my first paycheck :D

Its a long bus ride, about an hour so thank goodness there's a Starbucks for me in the morning. I don't actually mind cause I have one transfer which is at West Edmonton Mall! So if I decide I want to go shopping after work or go to the movies I can before I head home :D

I'm celebrating by ordering some Boston Pizza! How much do I love that I can order anything up to my apartment!

Thanks! It just went up to $9.40 (it's different for each province) but I remember in high school it was 5.90

Wow, that's great then. :) Here it's around $7
jennifer jensenjenniferjensen on July 11th, 2012 03:54 am (UTC)
Its actually the lowest in Canada. In most of the provinces its at least 10 and 11 in the territories. Although Alberta is the only province to only pay just GST. All of the other provinces pay GST and PST which basically doubles the tax on everything.

YAY!!! I knew you'd be able to find something soon. :)

The bus ride isn't going to be the best thing in the world, but so long as you have music to listen to or a book to read you'll be fine.

Yay for Starbucks and being able to order delivery!

In all honesty I really don't think it will be a permanent kind of job, its mostly just data entry and I'm not used to doing only one boring thing all day, its not very stimulating.

That on top of the fact that its an hour bus ride, 1/2 to WEM and 1/2 hour to 181 Street. Its way the hell by Stoney Plain Road.

I mean its fine and the pay is good for what I'm doing but I think its a stepping stone kind of job.

Those two things are waaaaaay too dangerous :D I already used my starbucks card in a week, on my way to gold member status :P

Also, can the sun turn off any time now!!!!! Its bloody hoooooot.
