that doesn't sound too bad
i worked at a subway throughout high school
as soon as the owner left in the afternoon we were on our phones in between sandwiches
we ate so many cookies and sandwiches they pry were thousands in the hole
and we smoked bud while taking out the trash
i miss it sometimes

Security guard here. I am sitting in my car with the heater turned on and not giving a fuck. If you value money over your free time, you're a fuckin dingus.
>not shitposting and making money simultaneously
it almost sounds like the perfect job, except they drug test so you can't blaze on the job right?
Yeah, I'm in a similar situation now.
Making $16/hour as a junior dev. Can do anything on the computer all day, but it's a lousy company and there's no growth (Also crappy legacy php to maintain)
This is my last week though, got a new position that pays $20/hour at a decent company. Probably won't get to goof off anymore though :/
What is the most work you've had to do in a night?

A client was consolidating their rented space in the DC by moving machines from two cabinets into a cage they were also occupying (just were going to pack machines in tighter.)
They showed up in the middle of the night a day before they were supposed to, while another client was getting DDOSed, the on-duty net engineer was nowhere to be found, not answering calls, emails, anything, the new feed that was supposed to be run to the clients cage wasn't run, and as the client began powering on their newly migrated machines, their power strips started popping.
So I'm running a cable under the tiles by myself while my co-worker (cool ass motherfucker who lets me sleep in the break room when I'm tired from school) is finding spare whips that have been run from the PDUs and trying to find out what machines they can power off when the net engineer stumbles out of his office drunk as fuck. He starts talking to us and trying to explain to the client that any cord-and-plug connected load can only be designed to have 80% of the circuit's rated ampacity for the purposes of fire safety (Which is true, I am knowledgeable about the NEC.) and it was just a general clusterfuck.
Another fun time was moving a KVM around to a hundred different machines in a cramped, dark, and hot as fuck literal jungle
of cables in the hot-gap between two sets of racks.
All in all, it's not bad at all.

Bitch thing is, I'm more than likely going to be getting a job offer as an industrial process electrician at a steel mill that's several hundred miles away from all of my friends and family, so it's a tough call. I can move, save up a bunch of money and get a bunch of experience, then move back, or I can take my chances here and wait for something else to come up….I really wish I could stay in the same field that I'm in right now, I just don't see a future for it at all. So many of the daily tasks I need to complete could be so easily automated that it's not even funny.
It's like I'm going to have to wait until retirement to finally get another chance to do nothing but relax, shit post, torrent old content that I want to archive, etc.

I work a desk, but the computer i use is locked into one program, so i can't shitpost at work.
What I CAN do is bring books to read during slow hours. I've gone through so many books and between the occasional customer and cleaning it's a pretty comfy way to spend the day
My manager recently told me to stop wasting time on the job, so i'm afraid that he might take my book privileges away. It's bullshit, i had gone over 2 hours without seeing a single person in the building and he tells me i should be pacing the floor.
I'll be getting stealthier about it, and hopefully i can continue

Thanks anon. I went in, gave it my all, but didn't get the offer. Now I'm scrambling to find something else. Feels bad. >>370> he tells me i should be pacing the floor.
That's such bullshit anon, wow. Maybe get a kindle so you can low-key have it flush up against your comp screen or something? Might be the best way to go about it, but damn, that's messed up. What industry is it?

Just sending out applications like a mofo. Luckily the professors have a whole bunch of other connects in the industry via a really loyal alumni network, so I'll get in somewhere, I'm sure. Just a matter of continuing to show up and do the footwork.
How about you? What's going on in your life? Something good, something bad, and something you're not sure about, if you please.
yeah man all you have to do is get that foot in the door once and you're golden
i'm doing okay, working as a web dev. the job is fine, i can't complain. other than that i've been pretty sick ;_;
hoping i can find some help soon. i have been doing some open source stuff lately so that's lifted my spirits.
>>416>foot in the door
Yeah, that's the truth.
Getting the recommendations has kind of taken a funny turn as of right this second - I'm extremely nervous that I'm going to soil the names of the college, my professors, and all of the other students by screwing something up because as of right now they think highly of me and how hard I've worked (many consecutive 20 hour work days in the final semester)
So in a way I'm really sick, too, just sick in the head. I'm sorry that you're not feeling well, too. Is it stress related? Are you eating somewhat healthy? Worried about money? I wish I could help anon. Let me know if there's another way that I possibly could, please.

I also forgot to chastise you for using open-source instead of Free software (if that is what you are making) :3
