Yeah, I've been a vampire most of my life. I still find myself up most nights.
I liked freelancing, which is similar to self employment, but without the book keeping end. Just picking who you work for makes a big difference in quality of life. Most I ever made annually working a real job was about 47000 & pretty good benies. Temper lost that job (and a really good friend) after four years.
My first freelancing job was for a tech temp firm and paid, 27.50 hourly, time and a half for over 40 hours a week or eight hours a day, double time for weekends and triple time for holidays. first contract lasted about a month. The company that contracted me was very, very behind on a 3D anime/video tradeshow thingy using touchscreen and lights controlled by the computer. They provided a place to sleep, meals, things to keep me awake and worked me14 hours or more a day with one day off each week to go and look at my house and show my pets I wasn't dead.
The money *sigh*
I knew a free lance aircraft mech a few years ago. He made two other brothers and myself canes out of Aircraft aluminum alloy. Fast in your hand, as light as solid wooden cane, pretty much unbendable or breakable. He was kind and the cane goes everywhere with me.
I just love that draggin' the butt across the floor thing...
...and if you think it can occasionally be gross when a dog does it - every once in awhile my fat, stupid, much-hated cat Stubby fails to get her azz clean enough in the litterbox and I find her draggin' her big white azz across my almost new tile kitchen floor, leaving a brown trail behind her. Which stops my laughter instantly.
Love this.. I started to do a scene with the hut then realized that it's not in my pc anymore.. By the time I found all the Tansy stuff discs & got it in the pc I didn't feel like making an image anymore. But .. I will get it done sooner or later.. LOL ..
Yes, she does. My constant plugging her models here is mostly to help a friend, but it's also because the accident took away my ability to model, giving me a taste of what people who love 3D and can't render live with. Helping other folk find low cost items to render that they'll use over and over seems like an easy public service to me.
I'm doing good! My New year's is always quiet except for the fireworks and bullets flying all over at midnight! So far..I've started work on Christmas Eve and haven't had my truck repo'd yet! I'm going to make a couple truck payments once I get my first check.. after my 30 days is up..probation but no officers visiting me! I do think about you..and wonder how you are..I hope you're good and staying outta trouble..or whatever her name is! LOL! Yes..bad joke..but I know you laughed! I'll send you a email, with a pic of me..just a normal one!!! Hugs and kisses my sweetest friend! Someday we'll meet and then set off into the sunset!
