I received my first paycheck from the new job, which of course is pretty much already spent. A large chunk of it went to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Yes, I finally officially own my car. The fee was significantly more than what the DMV website said it would be. It was the $165 usage tax that killed me. Oh well, I get paid weekly for the time being, so its not like I have to wait long to get paid again.
On Saturday, I drove up to Santa Barbara for a friends birthday bbq. It was nice to get out of LA, even just for the evening. The bbq was pretty low key but still a great time. One of the food highlights was my first experience with Ceviche. This particular ceviche was made by one of my friends Peruvian friends, with halibut. There were also homemade potato chips and exquisitely bbq’d tri-tip and chicken. Oh, and maybe a beer or two.
Work so far has been good. I’m still not completely sure about everything I’m supposed to be doing, but I’m learning more everyday.
