What's new

Just a bit of an update on what's been going on. David and I have really been enjoying out time not in school and not working. I have been doing a lot of work on David's family's garage, which needed a lot of cleaning out, and now we're having a big garage sale! I intend on putting everything I make at this towards my Africa trip, but it's not looking too good so far. I have real potential cause there are quite a few large, nice items that are worth a lot, and David's dad has told me that he'd give me a commission on them for selling them, but I need to sell them first. ;P I have posted on Craigslist too.
Other than that, we've been taking a few trips. A week ago we went to the very Northwestern tip of both Washington and of the USA. That was pretty awesome! My profile pic is from there. We also got gas in Forks (the setting of the Twilight series, which I don't care much about but I know some people that would care very much. ;P). And of course, if you look at my previous post, the past few days we went up to Whistler.

Even though I've been really enjoying my time off, I can't help but notice my $ dwindling, so I started passively looking for work. I also got a nice bit of cash back from the government for my taxes, so that helps. Anyway, I was looking on Craigslist one day and sent a few resum├ęs out via email and got a response from a sushi place that is just opening. I went into an interview and was offered the position! It's kind of a "test" for everyone involved as the place is just opening, and I haven't even started yet cause the place is still under slight construction! I don't know exactly when I start yet, but it should be in the next week or so. I have to bring my papers into him, which I was supposed to do when I was in Canada, but that didn't work out did it. ;P I also have to take a food handling and alcohol serving test and get those certificates, which I will do most likely tomorrow. This should be good, I love sushi and the owner seems like a nice guy. I also like the uniform. :) I won't be there long as I have to leave in May, but it'll be nice to have a little income for a bit, even if it is about a 30 min commute. I just hope the part time work is enough to make up for the gas. ;P I am glad it's part time though, so I can still have time to hang out with people as this will be the last time I'm in this area for a long time as I most likely won't be coming back here (for long at least) before I move to Australia.
