I start as an Estimator/Project Manager for a local civil site contractor on May 5th. It's been a long, hard eighteen months that I'll never forget and learned a LOT during that time. It's been a struggle to say the least.

If you are like me, you will remember how it was and never be able to have a really bad employed day again.

Probably true. After never NOT having a job for the last twenty years straight, it was one heck of a wake up call.

Thanks everyone. It's kind of a weird feeling delaying the college thing and sh!tty job until I was into my forties. But now that I've been through it, I won't look back. From here on out, it's onward and upward. I have three more semesters to finish my bachelor's. Hopefully with highest honors. Then it's onto getting my masters because I promised my father I would. I think I'll be the first in my family to get a graduate degree on top of that.

School and working, you Sir are a bad azz. When you pull if off I will also cheer loudly. Financially, what have you learned.
I felt like a genius for having a very healthy set of 401Ks.

Financially, I've become a poor college student and a tight-wad. That much will probably stick with me until the student loans are paid off. lol

First day back at a real job after eighteen months felt pretty damn good. What felt even better is when they told me they wanted me to come on board because they knew I was the best in this area at what I do.
