Albany: Day 2
My Tuesday in Albany:
After getting up and eating a hearty hotel breakfast (doughnuts , waffles, and OJ) I got ready to head out and begin the full day I had planned. First on the agenda was to go get fingerprinted for the background check the department requires. I just want to say Albany is big and confusing. So I had to go to Schnecidety to get said prints taken well made a wrong turn and in the process of said turn I some how got a flat tire. So I had to wait an hour for the AAA guy to come then I spent 30 minutes at the Goodyear shop getting a new tire...yeah it was that bad.
So after that I finally made it to the fingerprints place and got that taken care of I went to my office and met the people that I will be working with in less then a month. My work area is a 8' x 10' area...by the WINDOW....which is awesome. So after meeting everyone my quest for the Holy Grai....I mean apartment began . Looked at 3 places, one of which is a 3 bedroom bottom part of a house with a basement that has an actual "bar" down there. After looking at apartments I grabbed dinner at a local eatery and watched the Red Sox/Mets game on the tube then it was back to the hotel for the evening.
oh yeah...also got a city map from one of the ladies at the office ...very helpful...very
