Started my new job today. I now work on the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA. I work for a company called Jacobs Technology's and I am and electrician doing up keep in the one of the Wind Tunnels on the NASA Facility. Some of you may remember I quit my job when I was in Bremerton, WA working for my last company who shall remain nameless. Been out of work for the last month and a half. It has been fun being a slob, but I am ready to start earning a check.
