short answers: no. exceptionally well.
long answers: it may sound phony but I've never looked back at any point in my life. If you aren't happy where you are you are nowhere. I've settled into a schedule where I cook on Mondays and Wednesdays and bartend on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Days only. I could make 3x what I am making by working nights but I ruled that out when I agreed to return. Things are not well at all at the course I used to work for. When it was established it took $90k to join and when the economy shit the bed that number has steadily decreased, so much so that for this season for $5k you could get an annual membership( with certain restrictions) all the while regular members pay close to $8k in dues. On top of that there are rumors that the owner of the course may cut and run and give it up to highest bidder who could do whatever with the place.
At the end of the day I am making more take home pay and mother nature has nothing to do with my job performance. The last part of that statement really sums up my feelings. You have no idea how hard a job can be when you cannot control the most important aspect that impacts your job.
