Hey all, (Why I feel the need to address anyone when I know no one reads this thing, I’ll never know)
I’m actually doing it, I’m friggen blogging! Its not as hard as I imagined it would be. I read all these frequent blogs on all sorts of topics and I think to myself, I a)cant even write all that well, who would read my shit, and b)the only important news I read comes from other blogs so I’d just be repeating what that guy already said. So I’ve since ditched the dream of iVaughn.com becoming the next Lifehacker or ArsTechnica and have re-focused my blog on a more valiant and obtainable goal, to a attract so goddamn readers! So, here goes nothing.
As an aspiring IT Professional and avid computer software user, I’ve grown acutely aware of the many nuances and caveats that need to be kept in mind at all times while planning a life through a peice of software, take for instance MS Money Plus. I use it religiously, to plan my bills, track my account transactions and balances, manage my budget and forecast my future cash flows, but what happens when you simply read the number that MS Money spits out and never consider how it might have obtained it? All sorts of shit, that’s what. Needless to say I’ve come to the realization that I need a job, after noticing that my projected year ending (2008) balance of $1500 was greatly skewed by Money’s unique ability to take an average of all the monthly income I’ve generated over the past 9 months and assume that I am still capable of generating that today. So, for the sake of argument, lets assume that I cannot, as the past 9 months of income were the result of a lucrative on-campus job which I gave up to participate in an even more lucrative summer internship, neither of which mind you, do I still have today. In any case I realigned the estimates with what I considered most reasonable and saw the bottom line result plummet to just above $350.
I have since contacted the local campus bookstore about a graphic design job for arounf 12 to 20 hours a week, and roughly $7.90 an hour. Not nearly as lucritive as my previous employments but income none the less, I will keep all posted and I look forward to any wayward web surfers stumbling upon my site and commenting.
