Life update & job news

I’ve been remiss on posting, but for a good reason: things are going a little better, my luck may have improved a tiny bit. There are two things I’m working on. One is a new job and in that vein, I had a promising interview today where I scored a near perfect mark on the skills test and nailed the back and forth It’s still customer service, but it’s for a large S & P 500 Internet company with a huge facility here in town and I would literally be getting in on the ground floor — which is still under constructions. The pay is a little better than what I’m getting where I’m at, enough that it would materially improve my life practically from the first paycheck received. The thing I liked best about it is the actual work environment. Going from where I am to this place would be like walking from a 1960s office complex into the year 2035. It’s beautiful and spacious, full gym on premises, room to grow, plenty of room to advance, and it’s a publicly traded with a great discounted employee stock plan and other, topnotch superb benefits.

The other project I’m working on is for Kickstarter. I can’t talk about this much, but I may have some work for anyone who is deft with creating YouTube videos. Leave a comment below with a good email and I’ll contact you. Note: this is not an intern job, it is not a learn as go deal, this is a one time lowish to moderately OK flat fee for a few hours work for a creative producer who can hit the ground running with editing, placing text and other advanced effects on the YouTube platform. Outside of that, more soon.

    I know a video maker who could do the work you need. I think you have my e-mail from my comment; if not, ask Miri, Stephanie, or Jason on the backchannel, they all have my addies.

    Best Wishes for them both. Please let us know ASAP when you do get good news; you’ve been through such a rough time recently that a lot of us want to be there on the sidelines cheering you on when good things start happening again……………………….

    DarkSyde, I checked with my video-editing friend and he’s good to go on this one if you’re interested. The website ain’t pretty, but his video work is: http://fbnmultimedia.com/

    HTH. Stay strong, brother.

    Good Luck! My best friend from High School works for XO Communications and I know that they are, were recently hiring CSR for the phones. He will listen to me on a new hire recommendation. Let me know if you need it.

    Stephen,

    Today, Hannah Anderson’s 8 year old brother was identified, dead, burned to death in the fire in which her mother Christina had been found, burned, and shot.

    Hannah has been abducted and no one has seen her in a week.

    I would like to alert you to a truly disgusting, and racist blog post made by Sikivu Hutchinson.

    http://freethoughtblogs.com/blackskeptics/2013/08/09/another-white-woman-has-gone-missing/

    In that post, Sikivu Hutchinson, Ph.D., a woman born into a family with two successful, well known authors, decries Hannah as “Privileged victim”.

    This is disgusting. It is racist. It is foul and evil. It of course represents much of what the world has come to expect from Free Thought Blogs.

    Shame on any Free Thought Blogger that does not criticise Sikivu for her ugly, racist and highly privileged comments.
