I thought I'd be given more overtime but it turns out I'm mostly working a regular 40 hour week. I'm having a severe case of "ahh I make enough money already". I need to step it up with work on the side... thanks for the pep talk.

I don't think I could ever be in a place like Fort Mac or the shit hole town I"m currently in (Estevan, Sask) and be working 40 hours a week, there's just too much money to be made in those towns and they're aren't the most enjoyable places to be living. Actually, Estevan is such a dump that I actually miss Fort Mac, something I thought I'd never say!

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
