Working In Chicago

One of my favorite bands called the 88 will be playing before the White Sox vs Blue Jays game this Wednesday September 10 at U.S. Cellular Field in Chi at 6:30pmish. I am so jealous that I can't be there myself but I would hate for anyone else to miss them. They're so so so good. I found out about them cos they were that band that played in the opening credits of "You, Me, and Dupree."

I'm wondering if i'll be able to watch them online when they appear earlier at 8am on WGN Morning News. Just in case, could someone DVR it and post the video on line? pretty please? i'll be your best best best friend.

Check out their video. they're so good:

New here.... [Jan. 31st, 2006|11:28 am]

I'm wondering if anyone has heard of/worked with Dialogue Direct. It's a non-for-profit organization that hires younger people to raise money for charities. They boast that employees make between $500-1000/week, which seems nice, and benefits are available after 90 days. Anybody got some dirt?

I'd much prefer working as a waitress, but I'm not sure of the liquor-serving laws and my research isn't drawing any conclusions. Where I'm from (Indiana), all you need to do is take a class, pay $30, and get a license for serving liquor is you're under 21. What's the deal? I'm 20.

Oh, and I wanted to give everyone a quick tip: I was doing some research on banks (I'm obsessed with interest rates and investing of late), and I found out that the Lincoln Park Savings Bank offers a FREE Costco membership for anyone who opens an interest-bearing checking account or any direct deposit account. A membership at Costco could translate into saving big bucks, but if you choose the checking account, you need to keep a minimum of $500 in the bank. That's the catch. But some of you mau have that in your savings already, so I thought you should know.

Hey Chicago! [Dec. 2nd, 2005|02:37 pm]
Working In Chicago

[mood |excitedexcited]

So I'm about to move in with my boyfriend in the Rogers Park area. I'm taking a break from school, and planning to live, work, take a class or two, and chill out for a semester (I'm currently a disillusioned Beloit College sophomore). Problem is, I know very few people in Chicago, and absolutely no one in my soon-to-be area.

So what do people do in Rogers Park and environs (besides go somewhere else)? Where do people hang out, are there places to dance when you're not 21? What bars don't card? Are there theatres in the area? What the hell am I going to do when I'm bored at 2 in the morning? Oh, and any suggestions as to good places to work? I hate retail but will do it in a pinch. Coffee shops, restaraunts or "real" jobs are more what I'm looking for.

Thanks =) Maybe meet some of you sometime soon.

Any suggestions? [Dec. 2nd, 2005|01:21 pm]

[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

Basically I'm tired of only finding temp jobs. I'm looking for any/all suggestions and advice for landing a permanent job that pays me AT LEAST $13-15/hr and has some kind of future. I'm taking classes for medical billing and coding right now, so healthcare would be ideal. I live in Hoffman Estates and something in the area would be great as well. Any help would be extremely appreciated!!!
