How has life been?

I got my butt off the couch and came to my office to get on the ol' desktop computer, for old times sake!

I know I keep in semi-contact with most of you on Facebook, but what has everyone been up to for the last x-amount of years?

After doing a quick forum search, I was able to discover that I left Blockbuster on June 25, 2008. In a few months, it has been FIVE YEARS! So, here's what has happened in brantheman's world in the last five years...

-Spent the next several years following the big blue in the Hotel Business. I enjoyed it.
-Moved into Office work for a couple of years. Did did not enjoy it. Just got laid off! Currently looking for a new job in *GASP* retail!!
-Got married to my boyfriend! One year married, seven together!
-Just enrolled back in school to become a surgical tech. Wish me luck!
-Peed lots of music into the toilet.

Go!

Glad things are going good for you Bran. I left BBV in July of 2011 when my store closed. Got a retail job at Pier 1 shortly after that. Had some family issues, with my mom passing away in January 2012. Went back to work at another BBV, hated almost every second of it, and on 10/31/12 was my last day. I still work at pier 1, would love to go back to school but don't have the money. I am going to be volunteering at the Oakland County Animal Shelter after Feb 18th. I am hoping that I don't come home with every animal in the joint.

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell alone.

Sorry to hear about your mom
My mom passed away on October 10, 2009 at the age of 48. Unfortunately, this is also my husbands birthday.

Sorry about your moms.


I graduated college in 2008. Got married in 2010. Working in direct care for people with developmental disabilities. Love it. Was a Program Manager for a year and hated it so now I'm back in a group home and making more money through OT.

uh. I got married.

my mom died too.

we should form a separate club for that.

I work at a daycare. I'm an Assistant Lead Teacher in the 1 year old room, and a support teacher in the pre k room. I love it. I'd much rather deal with crazy kids than crazy adults (IE-you over drew my checking account and now I can't feed my 18 kids...)

yeah i think that about covers it.
