I need to add, since this work is being conducted for a private developer, none of this is supposed to be public knowledge. All information should be kept confidential.

…Well, that may put a damper on this post.

As some of you might know, I recently send my resume to an archaeology consultants company in hopes for jobs and better things. While there wasn't a full time position, there were several temporary positions that needed to be filled. So, I ran to Target, threw all of my hours for the next two weeks up onto the switch board, started calling some favors people there owe me, and tomorrow I'm driving up to Fishkill NY to work on a two week excavation of a Revolutionary War-era site. I'll be working Mon-Fri, 8 hour days. The motel is being paid for by the company, and the fact I have the weekend off means there are two chaps upstate that are POSITIVELY going to be getting a visit from me whether they like it or not! (so, [livejournal.com profile] rathbandu and [livejournal.com profile] neo_ninja--you had better like it! ^_^).

I am so excited I've been running around like mad. My duffel was packed last night, and I've been pulling up google maps of the area all day, plotting my drive up there. I feel like tomorrow's Christmas and goddamn I've been a good girl this year. Of course, I HOPE I can get all of my days (only four) at Target covered so I don't technically have to call out/get fired…but come on? Archaeology…Target…archaeology…Target….archaeology…Target…

Yep. Archaeology wins.

I WISH I could go into more details, but *points to above*. As I'm hoping to woo my way into a more permanent job with this firm, I don't want to fuck with the 'Berg, so to speak.

Fear not, the motel's got wireless...so while I'm not reading about New York State SHPO regulations, you'll probably catch me online. Depending on how whip-cracky these people are.

Um, right before I enter the witness protection agency?

Heh, no, seriously though, I want to talk about it but I figure I shouldn't. First actually meet these people, see what they are like, how serious this whole confidentiality thing is, what CAN be discussed, etc. Considering that the contractor or something is suing over this site, I'm sure mum's the word find wise until the trial. Alas.

Congrats Nella? But are you sure you don't want a painful dose of law school instead? Come on. Archeology...painful law school...archeology...painful law school. Yeah I know, I don't even like archeology and it still wins.
