Getting the itch again…

Posted by: mose

Posted in: Rock

So, I’ve been going through some of the old recordings. I’m not happy with them. They’re really not as good as I remembered them being. The timing is off. The editing is lazy. It’s time to go back into the studio, AKA swiveling this chair 180 degrees and turning the amp on.

Reader feedback time. What should I record? Should I do one of the existing ones again? Clean up More Love More Power or or Oblivion? Should I record a different cover? Or should I actually write something (scary). You have the power. Comment. Comment! COMMENT!!!!

A letter!

“Dear Applicant:

Thank you for participating in the recent agency training. The process of getting hired by any law enforcement agency can be long and even stressful at times. Congratulations on getting over the first hurdle.

at this time I would invite you to submit your Personal History Packet to the Bellevue Police Department….”

Yay! I’ll drop this off on Monday and then it’s back to the waiting game!

It was a good day.

I had fun at work. It’s been a few years since I’ve been honestly been able to say that. The only injury is fairly minor. It looks like this will be a more stable and permanent gig, which is nice. I work with a couple of great guys, and we’re able to clown around, get a lot of work done, and get stuff done. It’s nice. I could really get used to this.

Plans for the week

Posted by: mose

Posted in: Fantastic!, Life, Raves

So, I’m going to work tomorrow. It feels good. Really good. I didn’t get a new job per se, but my good friend Bob is short-handed and has been kind enough to let me do some work for him this week. I’m really grateful he’s giving me this chance. I’ve helped him out once before when he needed a hand with a night job. I really enjoyed it. It’s good old-fashioned hard work. No desk. No computer. And certainly none of this crap:

Never Again!

I’m not banking on the police thing 100%. I can’t read God’s mind, so I can’t be absolutely certain that’s his plan. I don’t think it’s untrusting to be looking around for other opportunities. I’ve applied for positions with the TSA, FBI, a great Christian investment firm, and some other places. If something comes out of those, great. I’ll ride it out until I get a call from a law-enforcement agency. I will not, however, go back to a call-center. I will not sit in a halficle (if it doesn’t have four walls, it’s not a cubicle) with a lame headset, taking call after call. If I happen to have a phone on my desk at my next job, it will have one of these.

The test results are in.

Posted by: mose

Posted in: Fantastic!, Life

So, it’s October 1. The results from the SELECT exam are posted. I based the Test of Adult Basic Education. Thanks, public school system! For the POST test, I came in with 90 in Math, 96 in Reading, 90 in Grammar, and 100 in Writing for an average POST score of 94. Of everyone that passed, the average was 88.27. I finished the agility in 1.44, just a second and change slower than average, 1.4214. :/ Not horrible. My genius wife ran the figures weighing the POST scores with the agility scores as a secondary sort and came up with me ranking 25 out of the 125 passing candidates. There were 23 that failed out on one or the other.

Now, the question remains, “Is that good enough?” I don’t know, but we’ll have to wait and see.
