Bartending School

Last week I decided I needed a second job.  I brainstormed lots of places I could apply and would probably enjoy working at.  Den and I sat down and talked about all my options and we both decided that I shouldn't get a job that would take up all of my free time.  We agreed that I do indeed need a second job (or at least need to make more money) in order for us to afford a house payment every month, but neither of us wants me to end up stuck at a crappy retail job for the next 15 years, dependent on the income, while we pay off a mortgage.  I'd end up with no life outside work and wouldn't have time to enjoy a new home.  I'd be miserable.

So we put our heads together and realized that bartenders make a decent amount of money.  More money than a retail job would probably bring in, and I wouldn't have to work as many days a week to bring home the money.  Bingo!  Same cash, less hours.  Just what I'm looking for.  But, alas, I have no bartending experience.  I used to be a beer wench at the Texas Renaissance Festival, but that's a little different than mixing drinks for a ton of bar patrons.  The solution?  Texas School of Bartenders.  Sure, I have to pay for the class, but sometimes you have to spend money to make money.  The best part?  They have job placement for those who complete the class.  I'm two weeks away from my second job.  I start class on Monday.

What can I get you to drink?
