    my new job on the 19th Current job has been getting slower and slower
    since more people are shopping @ wal fart for cheap prices.

    So got a new job, F/T with benefits (what I need!), also their in over time
    mode right now to handle new business coming online etc. - probably will
    be working bout 50 hours a week @ this new job + 10-15 hours @ my old job
    for another month or two, so they can find a suitable replacement and I
    can leave on the best of terms (or better be put on leave of absence).

    Good luck! Its always a bit stressful changing jobs. I changed just about a year ago and felt like a complete moron for the first few months! Just keep reminding yourself that it gets easier as the weeks go by!

    The good thing bout this is obvious:
    1) I'll be working 5 regular days @ the F/T job
    2) 2 of those days I'll cap off with short shifts @ the P/T job
    3) Only one regular full day @ the P/T job.

    And thats for just a month or two anyways - but after that, just 5 days
    No more pulling 10-13 days in a row just to get a full 80hr (2wk) paycheck
    More time to devote to finishing my website (or redesign) and photography.

    Actually started work last Friday. Feels good to actually work instead of sitting in a class,
    which is all I've been doing for the past 5 weeks. Had to drop a few $$$ to upgrade my
    work clothing to fit [more of dress shirts vs. polo] but otherwise no big deal.
    I just can't wait to get out of training (sometime bout beginning of next month) so I can
    start taking advantage of all the open overtime they have right now.

    Rebuilding the Tiburon engine with all performance parts, all new pumps/gaskets/etc.
    for now, though, with all this new found money. Can you say 350whp car by year's end?
    Or if I swing things right, I could most likely get into something like a used '03 Acura RSX Type-S around Christmas.
