Yeah, Facebook can so easily come just a pit of ****. I know when I had my break down in December, well, I pretty much did it in public on Facebook (well, to my friends). Thankfully they were very supportive but I still get embarrassed by it :P

Now if I can't say it on twitter, I write a blog post. I like writing and it helps and I babble so it's nice that no one reads it :D

Facebook for keeping up with friends lives/organising events etc. Twitter for the random **** of random-ness. Blog for serious post and writing my DnD stories. Now I just have to stay with that :P

I'm also looking at a career change, not liking being a soul sucking banker -_-


Probably :P

You totally should!

I don't regret the change at all! Not that this job is brilliant and the pay still sucks (I'm still listed as a Trainee, hopefully this pay review should see that change) and I barely have enough to pay the bills and what little I have in savings goes to the big bills or that game I really want.

But I hate IT and I hated that place so I will take the **** pay and driving to Rockingham every day than go back.

Mid year though. I am starting part time uni so I can get an awesome job :D

Cata, I'm currently in the midst of a career change... of sorts. I need to get my fitness up (maybe 80% there) but I've already applied. Will require a change of states as well... my wife is fully supportive of it too. Fun times ahead :P

I think you're on the ball Arty, you'll get there :D

I want a career change too, but for financial reasons. Earning less than $20 an hour isn't going to help us find a bigger house.. or help the wifey stay on maternity leave as long as possible.

Ballsy, stupid, same same :P

Mind you I'll be going from $80k+ down to about $55k base to start, that'll hurt a bit... but hell we're surviving on one income for now anyway so I'm used to being broke all the time! :P

Damn Disco, even our entry level casual pool get $45k :-/

Hell, my last job (entry level tech support) was $60k. Mind you, we're in very different areas, that's a massive draw back of living country vs city.

I thought my 60k+ down to 40k was bad!

Never been dumped personally, although I have done some in a less than flattering ways. This sadly is a huge reflection on the sort of people I attract. Why must they all be crazy?!
