    Had a successful 8th birthday party for our son today. The weekend closest to his bday is always presidents day weekend so it is always hard to do anything. The last couple of years he wants to have lunch then go to the Aquarium which is great but it is always a juggle with how busy it is. Today was insanely busy but we managed to get a huge group of kids and parents in to a diner for lunch then walk to the aquarium. And we didn't lose any kids in the crowd. I think we had 14 kids total. So tired but my son had lots of fun.

    Picked up a fuckton of overtime this week so working 72 hours in one week.
    Working tonight which is my usual day off so getting paid 8 hours overtime premium pay for the holiday , plus overtime premium pay for the 11.5 hours I'm actually working and it's dead tonight so making almost $60/hr for this lol.

    Also picked up enough days where I can bank the hours for extra days off which will put my bank by mid March at 72 hours, and I still accrue vacation and sick leave as well.
    May as well work my ass off until I get the call for my promotion.

    Do you get to cash out on your hours when you get the promotion, or do you plan to use the days?

    Since I'll still be with county , it carries over. I can bank up to 80 "comp time" hours in lieu of the overtime pay. For every 11.5 hours of work I earn 17.25 hours of comp time so it's a good trade off. I took the cash for today because of the holiday though lol.

    I'm banking some to use for my vacation in May and just backup so I can take a day off or use as sick days if needed.

    While I am not really into subs, not getting a Publix sub when I lived in FL is a big regret.

    As of yesterday I am a licensed realtor in the state of Michigan. I actually thought I bombed the test because the wording was so different than the practice tests and book work from the course I chose. I'm very glad you either pass or fail, no grade/score. So now the real work starts and I'm a combo of very nervous but very excited. I've never been good at trying to get referrals or what not for business, but I learned it's because I hated the work I did (insurance). I never cared to really try to talk to strangers outside of my office or be vocal about what I did. Now I'm happy to. For the first time in quite possibly twelve years I approached a complete stranger to start a conversation. I was at a coffee shop studying and I overheard this girl a few booths in front of me live streaming. I sort of took an interest into what she was talking about but I talked myself out of it and went to my car. I sat there and said fuck it what do you have to lose. Start a conversation and just see what happens. We talked for over an hour, exchanged numbers, and it was a great experience. If by chance down the road I can help her or someone she knows with a house, cool. I was over the moon that I was able to meet someone new and it hopefully have a new friend.

    About work though, there is lots to be done. So anyone can go take the test but to actually receive your license you need a broker code, which basically means you do have a job. I originally talked with the largest firm in the county to see if I could get in. The broker was awesome. We talked for almost four hours on my initial meet and throughout my studying we emailed. I'm sure what was next is protocol to weed out those that aren't serious. I was to meet with him again before scheduling my test. This was about a month ago. I was surprised how quickly he wanted to meet once I emailed him. I soon learned why. He was leaving the firm. I was bummed because I wanted to work under this guy. Decades of experience. Literally said his job is to mentor and create big time agents because duh, better agents means more $$ for him. I asked if he was retiring and he said he was opening his own brokerage. This changed everything in the conversation because now I'm like, is this poker where I gotta read if he's offering info or what the heck. So I just said, is the door open? He replied yes it is. He told me what I could expect and that was really it. Said it's a process getting his new broker code from the state but we'll be up and running hopefully mid March. I am extremely excited to be at the ground floor of his operation and I need to be a sponge because this is the best career opportunity I've had since 2010 and I'm not giving up this time.
