I have only been back home for a week or so, sort of burnt out from all of the really difficult classes that I took during the Spring semester. I need these for my computer science degree, which I am roughly two thirds of the way to. Of course many of these classes are quite difficult to get in and so I was faced with having to take a lot of really tough ones all at once. Yesterday I did a day’s work for a Hendersonville tree service. They will give me all of the work I want and even pay me a good wage, but this is dangerous and difficult work even when you keep both feet on the ground as religiously as I do. The thing is pretty obvious when you say it out loud, but you never want to get hit in the skull by a forty pound piece of wood falling from forty feet in the air. I have seen guys come close to that when they were not focused and it is really scary.
I would rather find a place where I could earn good money sitting in an air conditioned office, preferably one with a lot of attractive young women. I could also wish for them to find me attractive while I am at it, but it is enough to just be in the game. You are not going to meet any girls doing this sort of thing, although you occasionally work for them. Once in awhile they bring you lemonade, but then they get well away from the danger zone. I applied for some internships, most of which were in Charlotte or Raleigh. That would have been awkward if I had gotten them. It might have entailed me living in my car for a bit as I am broke right now.
