travel and work

I finally came home last weekend. Before that i had been staying with some college friends. While I was there they moved into a house they just bought, so I got to help out with that and see the new house. They, of course, were working most of the time, so I spent a lot of my daytime watching tv shows on dvd. When everyone was home, we played board games and similar, as usual.

After I had been there a while, one of my hosts got me something of a job. The office he works in had a bunch of projects that no one seemed to have time for, so I went in and helped them out for about a week. It was a nice change of pace. The company develops and imports board games, and my wages were paid in product credit rather than money. That is kind of fun, but after a week, I think I already have more credit than I know what to do with.

While I was still working there, I got word that work was going to start up at the scoring center back home. I bought a bus ticket and came home to do some scoring work. It was great to get back into that again (not least because it pays actual money), but unfortunately they have decided not to start any big projects any time soon. There won’t be any substantial scoring work for us until spring.

I would rather not live that long on savings, so I’ve been considering my options. I might move out of state. I might move in with some friends where the rent is cheaper than my current place and pick up scoring when it resumes. I might do something else that hasn’t occurred to me yet. This is the time to wait and see.
