I work at.....ahhh crap...I'm unemployed = \ lol
Got laid off last year around this time (job sucked anyway, factory work), lost my apartment, girlfriend took off, had to move back to the 'rents.
So I raided Borders Books for computer programming textbooks, consumed all of them and went back to college this fall as a computer programming major =D
Way to rise above all that crap. I'm going to dedicate my FF marathon to you.
edit: I also took the Chicago Firefighter exam YEARS ago...well they sent me some stuff about this time last year to take a physical. I took it and passed. They sent me a letter that the next step was a medical exam and background check but nothing never came.
I'm not holding my breath, since Chicago's budget is fucked. But on the other hand CFD stands to lose a lot of staff due to retirement and such.
