The lack of anything would be a result of work and me being too tired to do much. The last few days haven’t been very eventful aside from work and a movie marathon of Lethal Weapon. That’s about. Oh, and I’ve been smacking crazy people with pipes. Pretty neat blood splatter.

I was enjoying my day off yesterday until around 4:20pm when I received a call from one of the assistant managers asking if I could come in because one of the scheduled couldn’t show for whatever reason. I told them that I would (the extra cash is the only positive thing) and so I cleaned up and headed over. Fairly easy shift. Just one minor thing to make it less than perfect. One lady bought a phone card and when you get one a special paper prints up. I gave it to her when she was a checkout. A little later I was over at Taco Bell for lunch when one of the other guys comes over and tells me that she came in again asking for it. I told him I gave it to her so it she probably lost it or threw it out. He goes back and after lunch I check with the assistant manager about it. She tells me that the lady did a return and re-bought it to get the paper. She also told me to make sure they know what it is and I said I would. Now I get to go in today to get ready for the transfer to photo. Hopefully I deal with less annoying people. I am really going to enjoy my day off tomorrow. I don’t want to work for a fifth day straight.

Also, I get my first paycheck on Friday. Should be hefty.

I haven’t really been in the mood lately to write up anything so that’s why there hasn’t been much in the past week or so. Life is being a pain in the ass and the last two days of work have stressed me the fuck out. Other than that I have just been home dragging myself along getting horrible amounts of sleep. Although I did pick up Lego Indiana Jones on Tuesday. It is awesome just like Lego Star Wars. Makes good fun of the original films and ties it up pretty well. Some of my favorite parts from the movies fit well into the game which made me extra happy. I also downloaded the demo for Civilization Revolution. It is going to rock when it comes out in July. I’ve been playing Civilization IV on the PC for the last few weeks like crack. I just love building up and fucking shit up.

As for work, Wednesday was pretty hectic. It was surprisingly busy when I got to work and had to shuffle about at the main register (I hate being the main). A select few customers annoyed the living shit out of me and made life tough. After it slowed down a bit I managed to finish up my duties early which made me happy. As for yesterday (Thursday), I wanted to kill people. I had two people early on that needed complete voids which slowed me down being I was the only register in the front again. The other new girl tried to help by rushing over to cosmetics (her new area) to open up and ring up people, but the lazy fucks didn’t go over and instead stayed in line and complained about how slow it was. I was about to blow but I kept it together. After the initial rush I managed to get things back in order. Unlucky for me this continued for most of the night until the last hour we were open. Then it tapered off and things got easy. I did my duties and we headed home. I had a day added to my schedule (this Saturday) so I have to go in tomorrow so I can get training for photo which I will be transferring to soon. Should be interesting. I can easily joke around with most of the photo team. As for next week I only work two or three days so it should be a relaxing week, which is a blessing.

Everyone loves montages.

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.
