I have an exciting announcement. One that I never honestly thought I would make. Are you on the edge of your lil seat now? You are? Ok. As of yesterday (I am one day late), I have officially worked at Sass Herrin & Associates for 12 whole months...Man how time flies-well maybe not so much. I can't believe it has been a year since I was forcefully sucked into the working world at the young age of 23. Now look at me. Actually don't it would make me very nervous. Let's recap. 12 months=almost 100 appraisals which = more freedom. If you aren't sure what I do let me fill you in. I am a real estate appraiser. Well apprentice actually. They basically have to hold my hand until I have 100 appraisals under my belt. I have 90, but who is counting...I appraise land and homes. Basically I measure your house in the hot hot sun and get really sweaty, then come inside and draw and take pics. Then I write a riveting report and send it to whoever is paying the bill. Which sometimes doesn't happen. Here is what I have learned-
-Fly under the radar and try not to cause any problems whatsoever
-Dad most likely will not go eat lunch with you unless you wait until 2pm
-Dad likes to eat lunch at Costco, Jersey Mikes, BILO and Andolinis. Just those. Period.
-Keep Kathy happy. You need her on your side at all times.
-Follin and Andrew used to invite me to lunch to be nice. Now they don't care so they don't invite me.
-I am at the bottom. I may forever be here. I am ok with this. Really.
-Xmas card picture and production=high stress. Never volunteer to help again.
-You are only cool in this office if you have weapons. Not kidding. Everybody has them. Some A Lot more than others...Don't mess with me bc I now have one.
-Uncle Chick calls all the dang time.
-Dad has 3 different kind of laughs. I only like 1.
-I hate appraising trailers. Manufactured homes if you will.
-I don't want to live in Monck's Corner or Ridgeville.
-Bankers will never ever call you back unless you pretend there is an emergency
-You will sustain injuries to yourself or your clothing while doing this job.
-I am holding my tongue because there is a lot more I would like to say, but am way to scared....
-AND NOTHING EVER WORKS WHEN YOU NEED IT TO
These are just thoughts. Maybe the next 12 months I will actually make some monies....woop woop. Maybe. I'm not making any promises here...
