Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I arrived in Texas this Thursday, but came down with a nasty cold/potential flu virus that's been bogging me down since my flight landed. I'm still sick but getting better, so I used that workintexas.com website that Captain K posted a while back. I'm having trouble finding anything to be honest.
The only thing I studied in school was traditional animation up in Toronto, Canada, and I was forced to stop completing my diploma due to financial/immigration complications. As you can guess there's not a lot of use for that in Texas, so i'm just looking for any type of work that offers/pays consistent hours while i'm down here.
Since i've been gone from Texas for so long, I don't really have much job experience other than as a Server, and because of my school's private institution status I wasn't able to secure a work permit in Canada during my stay. I've basically been unemployed for almost three years!
I'm tired of going the server route. The pay is garbage ($2.13 an hour), it's never stable income, and to be frank i'm just not that great at it. I just want something I can go in and out from that pays decent enough and that I won't hate it completely.
