Sending even more good luck.

I know people who take jobs for the money and then keep looking for those with bennies. Had a friend that did this, he starts new job full bennies today.

You might be very desirable as you are new to the city and haven't been interviewed and rejected 100 times before.

1. I have two interviews tomorrow and Friday with two different companies. Have a good feeling I'll get either job, maybe both.

2. Food is cheaper here. Vitamins and other supplements aren't.

3. Everyone has water and offers water wherever you go.

4. Get the food and alcohol cards.

5. People are generally very nice and are concerned about safety, crime, etc.

6. UNLV is a huge part of this town and the Tark is a legend here.

7. If you don't get caught up in all the vices, you can make at the least a very decent life for yourself here.

8. There are a million food options.

** Food is cheaper in Las Vegas compared to what city? Are you comparing restaurants, fast food, or Grocery at the market?

Food in grocery stores is cheaper here than where I'm from in Western NY.

From my experience, Las Vegas food / dining in general is more expensive than LA/OC.

I don't eat out much. Maybe a dozen times a year, maybe not even that much. That's a special occasion thing. I guess I am kind of a minimalist. But I love making meals at home.

Interview went well today. Have another one with another company tomorrow. Hope I get the one I had today, but I am willing to hear what the other one has.

Not a telemarketing sales job of any kind.
