Sitting in the airport waiting on my flight to STT... Just wanted to tell everyone thanks for the helpful information and see you soon 🙂
Welcome to the Island, Sarge!
I'm SO JEALOUS!! I'm stuck in Nashville, TN until I can finish up this lease and sell my car! I will be your neighbor (STX) hopefully around the end of Jan beginning of Feb. 😀 Hope you had safe travels and good luck with your next step in life! 🙂 (tu)
So ive been here for a full day and its amazing. I cant stop looking at the water. Everyone has been very friendly. I started putting in applications today and its still slow but ive been getting good feedback. Did the trip to the grocery store today and its just like what weve all been told... Its nothing like the states which in my opinion is good. Prices are drastically different but gotta take the good with the bad. Im suppose to be here for four months for my PMV. Who knows yet as of now if i will stay :@)
Awesomechick99- i know the feeling... Im sure jan cant come soon enough 🙂
Definitely keep all of us mainlanders updated!! I can't wait to hear about your adventures!! 🙂 And yes- Jan can't come soon enough!!
Sarge, places will start hiring more in the next few months. What work are you looking for?
I moved to STT (Red Hook) on July 25th & I am loving it so far.
I was hungover/still drunk yesterday morning cause me & my buddy like to work half days on Fridays, so we started drinking at 1 pm at Pie Whole.......but, I have a beach 100 yes from where I live so I went down there at 7:30 am & sat in the water for about an hour & that seemed to reset me back to normal status. I was the only one there too, so that was an added bonus!
But, I went to the Saloon around 2:30 yesterday to watch College Football & stayed there for 6 or 7 hours......needless to say, I will be heading to Secret Harbour in about an hour to get right again (with a drink in my hand of course)! My friends just went to Pesce for brunch, but food just doesn't seem too important to me right now, I told them I would meet them at the beach & to call me once the cooler is full of ice & booze 🙂
Cheryl- im looking for bartender/server jobs right now. Even would work retail but since the busy season is coming i would like to get a resturant job. I have a bachelors degree in general business and have done book keeping etc... So i really open to anything. I might even try working on a boat.
