Spring is here in full bloom

Ok. Well, some have wondered what happened to me. I did land a job with a valet company (Silver Cloud Valet) here in Seattle. Checkout there website:

Its ok, nothing all that special. Since my tenture there I've quickly moved up the ranks. Now I'm working at one of thier high volume locations - the Muckleshoot Casino. Sort of testing the waters whether this job is ok to have as a Christian. For me I don't see a conflict of interest being a Christian and working on location at a Casino... at first for some reason I thought that my fellow Christians, might. Most of the patrons have the attitude that their coming for fun and are generally happy even after a losing... The cool think about this job is that it has opened up doors for a permanent job in my field, which is natural resources and given me an opporunity to work a minimum wage job (I'm 27 and this is my first job). Yesterday I applied for a fisheries biologist position with the Muckleshoot Tribe. I assume that I will be given an interview sometime in the future. A couple of weeks ago I outlined my goals... which are below.. amazingly the position with the tribes is a nice fit for the life I want to live.
