Hey peeps, how is everyone doing? I’m doing pretty good. Very tired but good none the less. I wish I could be more there but since I started working and going to school my time has pretty much been swallowed. I started at Canadian Tire in end of October or mid October and been working as a service man / car jockey. It’s pretty good for a basic job and foot in the door. It’s right next to my school so yay convenience. I am pretty much up from 5:30am till 1am (got to cram in studying somewhere) so usually my weekends are sleep oriented. Tire season started hardcore about two weeks ago. Basically all day is constantly changing tires and oil changes. I do roghly 40 – 48 tires a day. That means about 12 cars max during my shift. Really it all depends on if the tires are already on rims, low profiles, etc. I have had some really nasty ones like low profile 19 inch BMW ones but those are rare. I like the car jockeying aspect as I pretty much get to try all cars out there that come into the garage. Nothing too out there though but I have done some new BMW sports cars and plenty of luxury cars from other companies. Sometimes despite the price tag your better off getting a regular car for the average person. The worst car I drove by far was the smart car. Oh my god those are horrible. Not so much in the sense of speed as the car is fast but you just KNOW that if your hit then you are toast. It does not matter any safety inspections you feel the cheapness of their cut corners. I also lost a lot of weight. Roughly 20 pounds so far but toned some muscles much to Marie’s happiness LOL
School has been going quite excellent and passed some more modules. Right now were doing ignition so that’s pretty interesting stuff but mostly it all comes down to basics of electricity and diagnostics which I am pretty fucking good at. On my rare spare time I have been playing some Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I play this usually with Lucas watching. He loves all the scenery, monsters and all that. He gets so excited for boss fights. Sometimes he hides or screams woah!!! It is really incredible to see how he is turning out. He is very quiet usually, keeps to himself around others but when at home he just likes to hang out and help with whatever your doing. I’m pretty impressed. Sometimes I wish he would play on his own with his toys but as long as he is happy hey, who am I to bother him.
Anyways, I hope you are all doing good. I will hopefully have a friday off soonish. If I remember right I should have one coming up. I will keep posted on that. Would be nice to get together even for a movie or whatever.
