Getting Your Priorities Straight

So, I just got back from a job interview and got presented with a job offer! I had a choice of morning or evening shift. The evening shift is 15 hours less per week than the day shift so, it would be a somewhat significant amount less money on each weeks paycheck. There was a choice to be made. On one hand, I would be making less money but on the other hand I would have to give up my weekday morning snowboard sessions. The choice was obvious. Starting next week, from 5:30 to midnight I'll be at work and happily riding all morning I love it when shit falls into place. At the end of June I can switch to morning shift and once again in October I'll be given the opportunity to switch back to evenings. Gotta love it.

If anyone else ever took a pay cut or sacrificed their careers to ride or do what they love then post up your stories.

Now that's putting it in perspective.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

The fact that he told you... you could be a lizard at a truck stop should pretty much end your questioning. lol

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

They're too stupid to gather what that entails. I suggest they google image blue waffle instead.
