I arrived home early this morning from a week in Las Vegas. This was the second year I worked Call Center Week. After paying my flight and car rental, I earned about $700 for the five days I worked. It isn't a ton of money but more than I was paid last year. Since my hotel stays and virtually all my meals were free, I was able to keep my travel expenses low.
Working the conference was mentally and physically tough, but I enjoyed it. The client gave me a ticket to see the Beatles Cirque du Soleil show, Love. The Beatles were before my time so I never got into them much, but the show was fabulous and I enjoyed it enough that I will go again. Since I was exhausted from working every day I didn't do much gambling. I ended up winning about $100 over the entire trip. I also "won" a movie pass and t-shirt for playing, so I got to see the new Purge movie for free.
