Well I graduated in december and got a job with the Army Corp of Engineers. I’ve been working with them since feb. I am currently located in Reno Nevada and i work in Base one hour north of Reno. I’m on a rotation program where every 6 months we work in a different field. In August i’ll be moving to Sacramento for 6 months. I’ll be looking forward to that. Anyways, my experience with working with the government has been edifying. I have been able to learn a lot about construction and a lot about the development and process of construction projects. I’ve been trying to balance my life with working hard and playing hard. I sometimes drive to Utah and go long-boarding down my favorite canyon (Provo Canyon). I go to sacramento when i can to hangout with my friends. And Me and my roommate will sometimes go on a adventure of searching for a cheap guitar in pawn shops in Reno. There are many pawn shops here and they seem to do very well. I was kind of interested in how they are ran and what their profits are like. I talked to one pawn manager that manages a franchise pawn shop and he said that the company does around 50,000 dollars a month. This is an exception business plan if you ask me. The only problem with it is that it isn’t very passive income since it requires a lot of hard work to manage such a business. Even though it’s not ideal its still something interesting to know.
