Life lessons learned? It always takes more money than your told, so come prepared, have a plan, and make friends hard and fast; then you'll have no worries. (Kinda knew it, having to rely on it now.)
Bosses may be pricks and pains, but make friends with them and your golden. (This I already knew, but it's being reinforced at the moment.)
Found some bizzare writting stuff that I shall post as soon as I am able.
Hopefully all this gets done soon and I'm not going to starve to death. Fun times!
