End of 2013-14 Winter, Looking Back and Ahead

I'm just about finished with my winter job.  I had decided to stay near home this winter for a couple of reasons.  I've been camping in my sister's basement, throwing a bit of money for rent.  I also managed to beat the seasonal hiring bias and picked up a job at a local Premier Best Western.

First thing I noticed on my return....wages in the service industry have dropped locally.  From what I could determine this happened sometime near the beginning of the recession.

Second thing...rents have increased quite a bit.

Third...I had to choose one of the coldest winters on record to return home...and for Wisconsin, that's some serious cold.

There's a comparatively large public library in this area, and I have been spent a lot of time here.  I also had a membership at the local Y.

I have a real strong case short-termitis.  Looking forward to a few days in Las Vegas before my summer begins.  I want some heat before heading up to Alaska.

I have also watched the staff slideshow often from last year.  By the way, it's here:

Let's see:  10 days left of work, 15 days left in Oshkosh, 19 days until Las Vegas (visiting my mom for a couple of days first), 22 days until Anchorage, 24 days until Cooper Landing and move in, 25 days until summer work
