First of all, I shouldn't mislead you all, I knew I got the position a few days ago, but today I found out (well actually yesterday since its like 4am) that all is ready to go. I sent my acceptance notice, I got my apartment (its VERY nice!!), and my mother didn't take it as bad as I thought she would! She was actually happy for me. I was shocked. Really shocked.
I start at PHX (Phoenix airport) on February 19... that means I have to get all my shit together within a couple of weeks. I also had to cancel going to Mexico with Lou so I could use a vacation week to move there. They better give it to me because Im just going to leave. I am also hoping they give me my reimbursement for the CDL-A without a problem. I know these people can be stupid (see how long it took for my CDL-C reimbursement) so I have to go there tomorrow to make sure he doesnt bullshit me.
So now that a lot of my stress about leaving has been lifted, I am going to start packing soon. I also have to get my car fixed and inspected before I go. I have to install the hazard light so I can pass inspections over there if they are that stringent. Or not.
When I wake up, I have a million things to do!!! And I also have to make a million lists!!!
Shoo, this is hard work.

My first application packet arrived in Phoenix today... I am anxiously awaiting another packet from Phoenix to send back. I am very excited to be on the "A" list of candidates for Phoenix! I have been kept up at night thinking about all the things I will do and need over there. I think about how I will move there (I just found out that with my Fedex employee discount, I can send everything there for waaaaay less than it would be to rent a U-Haul. My Plan is to Fedex my non-breakables such as clothes, shoes, books, and uh... thats about it, and pack in my car my electronics, breakables, and animals. I guess I will have to leave my fish tank behind. I may also leave the budget birds, but take the doves.
So here is my list of potential items I will ship via Fedex:
-Most of my clothes and shoes (I think I may leave behind the fur coat, but at the discount rate I get, I can afford to take both my closets) -Office supplies (I'd say "school supplies" but I don't want to act like Im still a student) -Select books (definate books are Calculus, Anatomy & Physiology, Volumetrics, Earth Science, Holy Bible(s), choice astronomy books, cookbooks, and work related literature. -Paper files (yes, people actually still use file cabinets although I will have to get a new (cardboard) one when Im over there because mine in metal) -Tools I currently own (I will leave the belt sander behind) -Any clothes drawers that cant be disassembled
And here are the things I will take in my car:
-Computer -All electronics except my TV, VCR, and DVD player. -Makeup -Jewelry -Spaceship Chair -Select appliances -Plates and utensils -Birds -Meux Meux ^_^
However, I will have to buy a lot of things when I get there such as:
-New mattressandframe (considering Aerobed because I hate cheap mattresses, but afraid the plastic will melt in the heat) -Some sort of desk with chair for the computer (this one is perfect. All I require is a pull out shelf) -some sort of eating table with a chair (unless the eating table becomes the office table and the eating chair is a rolling office chair) -A lot of those big Tupperware trunks, although I may opt for cardboard so I can throw it out later on. -Pots, pans, utensils, and big appliances like a microwave (unless the place comes with one... and I hope the place comes with a refridgerator!!) -Other things I cant think of at the moment.
I went on a preliminary kitchen cost assessment, and I conclude I will spend between $300 and $400 on the kitchen alone. Throw in the rest of the stuff and I'm looking at about $1000. Thats not so bad.
Well enough time wasting. Ive got to hang my clothes and get ready for work. Tonight will be okay, but the rest of this week is going to be cold! I may have to break out the snow pants :(

Happy New Year!
I guess I am a little late with that greeting, but in any case...
My new license with all endorsements except school bus will be arriving in the mail soon! And without wasting any time, I have already applied to a couple of positions out in Arizona. I hope I get a "supplemental application pacakge" soon from them. I would be so excited to finally move there! Not only that, ASU is the school that offers the MBA with logistics concentration!
NEWS ALERT!!! NEWS ALERT!!!!!!
OMG! Fedex FINALLY reimbursed me for my CDL-C!!! HURRAHHHHH!!!!! JOYOUS MONIES! It's all there! all $178!!!!! I just saw it right now! HURAAHHHHHH!!!
Anyway, I went to the PBR Versus Invitational (the bull riders competition kickoff) at Madison Square Garden and I liked it a lot! Unfortunately, there were a lot of obnoxious people there, who were only there to make fun of things. In my opinion, why would you go to an event to make fun of the event? I don't get it. I don't think that's cool, I think that's stupid. Yeah, so they play country music and salute the flag.... thats what many Americans do. More reasons to dislike NYers. Snooty for no good reason. And extremely obnoxious when drunk. Not to mention unattractive. Being a poseur is never cool.
I didnt bring my camera because they asked for no video cameras so I didn't want to cause any trouble. I wish I did though. Plenty of people were "breaking the rules." I had fun though. I hope I can see another one someday - but maybe somewhere other than MSG, you know?
Not much other news here. Just waiting for my packets and a chance to move. Im cold... Im going to bed.
