R.I.P. Biggie Smalls.... Anyhow it's long since been official: I'm taking a job and moving to Las Vegas. (I like to call it LOST WAGES! [Such a great joke!]) If you're hearing it here for the first time, don't be so offended! Or surprised! Remember when I announced my engagement on this blog. That was WAY bigger news and you all were happy for me then. What's changed?! What's your problem?! This web-log has always been the source of relevant, exciting, and breaking news.
So basically it's a one year management training program. After that I'm placed into a store as the General Manager. Great benefits, salary, and bonuses. I'll be working in a retail environment, soometimes in a mall, selling very stylish and expensive jeans... now, i know what you're thinking, "Craig, this sounds PERFECT for you!" but I'll tell you now that I had some reservations i had to work through.
Here's why I think it'll be good for me. 1) It takes organization, planning, scheduling, and someone that's uptight about the details. Boom! That's me. 2) Communication, interpersonal skills, leadership, and dealing with hot headed people in a calm, cool manner. I like the challenge. 3) Fashion sense. You all KNOW that i'm stylish as crap! 4) Drive to make money. Dude... I love money. I need lots of it. I spend it like it's on fire.
The bottom line is that Karly and I are ready for a change and this is perfect timing. Our current lifestyle/schedule involves me working 80 hrs a week and her going to school 20 and working another 32. We NEVER see each other. It's stupid. Plus, it'll be good to strike out on our own and whatnot. I'll miss Utah, all my family and friends here. A lot. But Vegas is only a spell away and it's on the way to California. I'm excited to see more of my family down there.
I'll be leaving the 19th of July. So there you have it.
