My time off is closing up. I head back to work tonight and tomorrow before I get another day off. Not too bad. I think I can handle it.

In other news I got my debit card in the mail so I need to activate it sometime today. Although I’m still waiting for my paycheck before I start using it. Hopefully that comes soon as well.

So I missed last week, oh well.

Three nights down, two to go.

The night shift is sucking up my energy. Before work today all I wanted to do was lay down and rest. I didn’t go to bed until 4am and then work up at around 8am. Friday did the most damage as it was delivery day and I had to unpack a metric fuckton of totes full of candy, most of which ended up going to the back room anyway. Today I had to deal with other food items along with my usual duties of register, customer service, facing, and whatever else the shift manager needed me today. Although, I managed to finish my duties early and then went on to help another newbie out. She seems like she may keep me on my feet during the nights we work (like tomorrow). I was also happy to see that my success today was appreciated by the shift manager (who is also on my shift tomorrow) so things should go smooth. It really depends on who’s working to see how your day goes. Some are easy, others not so much. Just have to take it one day at a time. At least after Monday night’s shift I get a nice three day break until I work Friday and Saturday. The busy days. The good news is that this Monday, being Memorial Day, I get counted for double hours which means extra money. Whoo!

I just noticed that I forgot to do Tube Tuesday. I’ll make it up next week. I’ve been busy and tired this week and the next five days or so are going to be killer, so I might not post often or if I do it won’t be much.

After my math final tomorrow will mean the end of a my freshman year in college. It went by super fast. But as that ends I start working more and it begins with a five day streak of 7-hour closing shifts on Thursday all the way to Monday. I am going to be fucking tired.

Pain = money I guess.

Well it is official, I am going to be going to (repetitive, I know, just making sure you are reading) my aunt’s wedding. So I will be making this as special as possible and not just because of the wedding. WordPress is telling me that this is the 1000th post (not sure if it is WordPress only posts or all of those and the imports, but who cares). I will be covering the three days I will be there and if possible (well, you’ll know if I did it or not) a special video! Yep, so buckle up and hang on. I’m taking this motherfucker into overdrive.

Well I am home from my first official day of work, ever. My feet are sore and I have a mean old lady on my mind but other than that, all is well. I get to go back to work tomorrow at 4pm and work until 11pm which means I get less than an hour to goof around after school. There goes my day. Anyway, to celebrate this monumental occasion, I give you a special retail work safety commercial. Enjoy.

On Saturday I was at the mall and finally managed to persuade the folks to let me upgrade my shitastic phone. I now am the proud owner of a Blackberry Pearl (8100). I had to upgrade (and at the same time downgrade) my plan to work with the Pearl. We dropped my 600 My Fave minutes to 300 and then added the Blackberry Ultimate Add-on (or so we thought). The guy told me it would take between 24 and 48 hours for the web package to activate. I swapped out my SIM card to the Pearl and noticed none of my contacts carried over so I ended up manually adding them later that evening. That was minor to the web package which still wasn’t active. I kept checking all Sunday with no luck.

Today I was still annoyed because it wasn’t working. After school I headed over to the local T-Mobile store to see what the fuck was wrong. I go in and tell the guy my situation. He loads up my details and asks if I called customer service when I changed the plans. I told him yes and then he said that they screwed up (go figure). So the guy goes and calls them up and takes care of business. He corrects the error and does a hard restart to my Pearl. When it booted up all the web stuff loaded instantly. 24-48 hours my ass. Just a few hours ago I bought and put in (with some trouble) a 2GB microSD card so I can put stuff on it. Now I am a happy camper.

Also, big news. I got the job at Walgreens (found out on Saturday) and start tomorrow for training and such. Should be an interesting day. I’ll have to make sure I set my phone to vibrate though. I don’t think they want to hear the Megadeth version of the Duke Nukem theme.

I am tired and bored, what a surprise.

Today was quite a day. Started off with English which seemed to fly by and prove that I know more than most people, still. Then it was a race back to town where I got the car filled up and then headed home. When I got home I prepared myself for an interview.

Yesterday while I was playing Grand Theft Auto IV online I got a call on my cellphone. No phone number was listed so I didn’t bother answering it. They left a message so I played it. Turns out it was Walgreens responding to my online application that I filled out way back when. I called them up and got an interview scheduled. Fast-forward to today and I headed over. When I first got there I filled out the rest of the required stuff and then found the manager and headed to the back for the interview. I handed her my resume and references and then she explained everything. It seemed to go well from my perspective and then she handed me the form for the required drug test. I said my “Thank you”‘s and “Have a good day”‘s and headed off to the place. I had to go to one of the medical centers in town and got the test taken care of. So now I get to wait a few days to find out if I got the job. It’d be nice to get some income going since I am dead broke with summer closing in. I would be making $8.80 if I do get the job which rocks.

A few hours ago I accidentally smashed my knee into my door on the side of it. It is swollen and purple. I applied some ice to lessen it but it didn’t seem to work. It hurts like a bitch. Hopefully it isn’t anything serious and gets better or I am fucked. Such a crazy fucking day.

Lastly, I hope everything goes well for my good friend Lauren and her roommate. I’m here for you.
