    Yeah so far my Friday/Saturday's have consisted of copious amounts of liquor drinking. Now I understand the term "working for the weekend".

    Electrical Engineer with an oil drilling company...(onshore drilling, no BP).

    I'll be working outside of the city in a small office building, making frequent trips to the drilling sites to deal with rig pigs.

    I hate Loverboy, but I have to admit that song is pretty catchy.

    Yeah, I swear it somehow gets stuck in my head everyday Friday afternoon and I chant it until I am released from my 9-5 shackles and can inebriate myself into a drunken stupor.

    I'm confident you'll find your way bro, either through lowered expectations or a change in plan.
