I really wish I didn’t have to work at Lowe’s Mon. - Fri. It’s 4:08 am and i’m up again researching data and lingo for this conservation easement i’m editing for my other job. I love this job so much that i’ve been working till 4 am almost everyday and getting about 4hrs of sleep each day. Right now I have Netflix’s: National Geographic-Appalachian Trail running in the background, I got Kevin Lynch’s site planning book + a Geography book + … shit i don’t feel like naming all of the books sprawled out on my floor right now. It kinda looks like i’m preparing to write a thesis paper. I’ll go ahead and show y’all a snippet of what I have edited, bc i already know you all don’t want to see all 10 pages/park descriptions + 300 pics of all 8 parks + gps coordinates/ descriptions I have worked on so far.
What I was given.
"Natural Resources Values: With the adjacent Wetlands Park, this park is comprised with approximately 4,000 linear feet of riverfront property on the James River, at the beginning of the fall Zone. River water begins to encounter rapids, picks up speed and attracts birds, fish, and other wildlife. Excellent water access, with several water access areas (non-motorized, ie canoe/ kayak/ tubing) and good wading & swimming. Large gravel parking lots, a nice park building with classrooms, restrooms, storage, etc. Abundant pedestrian and biking facilities throughout, benches at nice viewpoints. Network of small paths throughout property, with several good fishing areas, and mostly undisturbed plant and animal communities. Abundant wildlife ! Natural Heritage resources unknown. “
Natural Resources Values: With the adjacent Wetlands Park, this park occupies approximately 4,000 linear feet of riverfront property on the James River, at the beginning of the Fall Zone. This corridor of James possesses a current that flows downstream and generally picks up velocity creating rapids. Within the vicinity the river provides several ideal water access areas used for (non-motorized, i.e. canoe/ kayak/ tubing) wading and swimming. The aquatic landscape habitats a diverse community of birds, fish, and other wildlife. Natural resources along the river transpire into on land recreational opportunities for the abundant of pedestrians who visit this park. On land recreational opportunities include biking, hiking, fishing, and benches for observation. The copious amount of terrain along the river supports undisturbed plant life and animal life. Natural heritage resources have yet to be identified and are listed as unknown.
Can someone just hire me as full time employee and start me off at 70k, so I work myself up to 100k? God that reminds me I need to apply for 5 ArcGIS jobs this coming week and look at more graduate schools.
