I really like my new job so far. I went a little over a month and I 'm finally getting into the swing of things as far as what is expected of me. I do not mean I work for or exactly what I do , but I will say that I am in the sale. My position also required a lot of travel which is different for me. I 'm not used to "live in a suitcase but I 'll get used to . An average week to see me away from home 3-4 days depending on what happens . The only thing I'm not too fond of all the miles is that I'll put on my car. I'll use it as motivation to do well, I can afford another one with lower miles . I still have plenty of life left in my current car , so it is not a big deal.
One thing I 'm still getting used to is using the WiFi in the different hotels I stay . I used before of course, but not to the extent where I am now . I soon realized that not all hotels have a real secure connection that made me start looking for something that could help me in this regard. I found the best VPN for China and I signed up with them. Now I do not have to worry about anything when I am using WiFi.
I have to thank my friend Nick to hire me . We were both on the job (it is unfortunately still ) and tell each other good jobs that we saw during our research. He is the one who told me about this position and I'm really glad he told me . It is not the type of seller so he had no interest in pursuing it . I keep control of my old sites from time to time when I 'm home and I sent him some job to check. None of them worked for him , but I'll keep trying. I knew how long it took me to find and even then it was someone else who has found me. The problem is there are so many people on the work they get so much interest that they can choose the best of the best to work for them.

I leave this weekend with my girlfriend Katie and I am really looking forward to it . His family owns a cabin which is about two hours as we go. I've never been there before , but from what she told me , it is very nice. It is fully furnished and has heat and plumbing and everything you could ask for. I think the thing I am really looking forward to is that there is no internet access there. She told me that even our cell phones do not work which is nice but a little scary as if it was an emergency. I think that's the only downside of it but I 'm not going to worry about it. I'm sure we'll be fine , but I 'd be worried if something were to happen to my parents. I said worst case, they can call their parents and they can pick us up.
As for what we'll do involves a lot of rest and relaxation . I pick up a book that I'll probably read from beginning to end . There is a barbecue where I intend to use too much. She told me in the small town near the cabin there is a butcher shop that sells really good meat that we'll stop for you.
I am ready to leave mainly because of my work. It was super stressful lately and it starts to wear me down. I really hope things turn around soon because otherwise I might have to start looking for something else. I'm tired of working 60-70 hours per week. I am an employee , so I do not do anything extra for that time either . I think it 's so stupid but I knew when I accepted the position. The thing is, I was told there would be a few days where I had to stay late. I know complaining about my job is not what you probably want to hear that I 'll stop.
Anyway , I'll take our camera too and will do a lot of pictures . I'll do another post when we get back and after some, but not like me when it will be exactly . I know it will not be on Sunday evening and how the work will he might have to wait until next weekend.
