Jake

I was looking through my email to find birthdays to add to my calendar, and I came across one of my conversations with Jake.  Nothing really big in it, but... I have decided to post the thread here.

Hey there!   Family / Friends

How are things going?  Where are you at right now?

Things are going... well.. interesting here... I quit my job because I
am starting another year contract at Intel.  However, this time, EOTI
is my employer!  EOTI is actually going to be making some money above
and beyond my own wage!

Dino and I actually just got home. I thought I would send you a quick
hello before hanging out with her.

How are things going?

We hung out with Elaine for her birthday yesterday.  She has decided
not to go to the middle east on the study abroad.  Instead she is
going to try to graduate next summer (next year) then go to school in
DC.

I start my new job on Monday. A bit nervous -- I am not actually
convinced that I qualify -- but I had to take the chance that this
might help us attain our goals.

Dino's still working at the law firm. They gave her another raise, so
she is now making $9.25/hr.  She doesn't seem as worried about loosing
her job now, but I think she is getting bored.  We're hoping to be
able to get her back into school once we get caught up on bills.

Haven't really talked to anyone else lately, so not sure how everyone
else is doing.

..>Yeah, I quit my job Thursday because I am going back to Intel for a
year starting monday.  The good news is, EOTI will be my employer and
contracting me out -- which means (before benefits and taxes) that
EOTI will be making $19/hr on my work AFTER my wages are paid.  I am
really hoping that this will give us a chance to finally get EOTI off
the ground.

PS> Sorry middle east is so boring. Perhaps you could build a sand castle ;)

Sorry if I haven't been writing enough. Honestly, I rarely use my home computer.

Started my new job today. No clue how it is going to be yet though, as
I won't have my work computer until tomorrow afternoon.

so, you have like 15 months left right? have you decided what you are
going to do when you get back?

what is your physical address and phone number now?

Take care of yourself,
Mal

I am currently doing a contract where EOTI gets a portion of my wages... I am going to see if I can help Dino and Chris get a job as well, as they both lost their jobs.  Mostly, just trying to get EOTI some funds so that we can start doing our other plans.
 
Can't wait till you get back... About 1 year now, right?

Yeah, I understand. Sorry to say it, but I kinda expect the same.  My uncle was constantly coming out of retirement.  Wish there was a way to show them that it was in their best interest to let you go.

Honestly, right now they probably assume every able body is in their best interest.
Unless there were some way they would benefit from you being here (as opposed to you getting dishonorable discharge).
