So I spent a good amount of time mourning the loss of a tech support job at NOA. I was let go for being confrontational. Basically I was waking up too early and being bitter at work and they like to let people go without qualms about it. At the time I was pretty sure I was the bomb because my experience at Rockstar Support gave me a leg up on others in my training class. I loved the subject material and displayed confidence and superior ability to perform my duties. But to be honest, Nintendo made the job super easy for us. I mean they really hook up their system so everything is a piece of cake. It's wonderful to be in their tech support department.
Anyway, I ended up working in a preschool as a substitute para educator over the winter. I ended up sending a letter to my old recruiter at Nintendo letting him know how much I missed it there and he offered me a role in their warehouse. It's a 2 month contract boxing systems. Pays well but gets me up at 4 am for an hour commute. I'd love to get back on campus. Amazing and affordable sushi on tuesdays. Sports fields, employee store. Cool people all around. My ego would love the bragging rights (posting now for a fools form of glory).
But I had a wrist surgery over the winter and I'm experiencing spinal arthritis and degenerative disk disease out of no where. I don't feel up to the task. And honestly, I'm kinda liking the school system. Kids are fun to work with and it seems, i don't know, rewarding. Nintendo would pay more at the start but schools would jump me up higher pretty fast. I am supposed to start on monday for the warehouse thing but I'm kinda more looking forward to monitoring the playground and helping kids learn to read.
So anyway. just thought I'd share.
