You know that job that I have that I am so in love with?

I might be quitting. Tonight.

I feel kind of empty right now.

MY BIRTHDAY IS THURSDAY (why do I use so many parantheses?) [Tuesday,
February 19, 2008 @ 10:32pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

I have been nudged!!! As such, I feel obligated to post just because I feel loved.

Why haven't I posted? Hm, well, it might have something to do with the fact that, on top of obligatory school, I'm working 6+ days a week. Um yeah.
The good news is, I had a mental break down when one of my jackass bosses insinuated that I don't do enough work to deserve a raise (mental break down=good news, what? i know, stay with me). My main boss was told about the fact that I got pissed off at this insinuation and we ended up having a talk about how stressed I am with school and family issues and all that jazz and I did (unwillingly) admit to the fact that I can't NOT work 6 days a week, despite the physical toll it takes (I am so exhausted, like, all the time!!) because I need the money. Matt (big boss) jumped at that. I had been veryyyy reluctant to bring up anything to do with the raise because I didn't want to seem desparate, but he said that he "took care of" me. So, I'm getting the raise to 6.50. Not that much more (50 cents) but when you work over 30 hours a week...it's better than just 6 dollars. He also said that since I am staying for community college for a bit, he's planning on promoting me to Associate Manager which is another 50 cent pay increase (plus 50 more cents once I start closing the store by myself) and will pay for the college while I work. It's 40 hours a week on top of college, but well worth it IMO. Hell, I worked 38 hours last week and that's with MORE hours of school (and every day during the week instead of 2 or 3). I might as well get something extra out of working so much.
So that's my work situation, abbreviated. Other drama has been going on but we won't touch on that.

Um. Hm. I finally found a picture of my prom dress online:
It looks a little bit more...um. I don't know. It looks different on me because I have more curves. Big boobs. I guess it could look sluttier, but it could also look better? Depending on how you look at it, maybe. In person, you can see the sequins better. They're actually more gold-y in person and you can pick out more of the other colors, but it gives you the general gist from the pictuer. I'm so excited! Prom isn't until May, though. And I probably won't have anybody ask me. BUT I'll find somebody to go with and it will be fun. =) My mom was worried about buying the dress so early in case I found something I liked better, but so far I've looked at a TON of other dresses and haven't found anything. So that's good.

I suppose that's all for now. Super sleepy!

Decision: Made [Wednesday,
February 06, 2008 @ 7:30pm]
[ mood | determined ]

I've worked it all out, finally.

This summer, I'm taking about a semester's worth of classes at a junior college.
Then, upcoming school year, I'll be there.
Next summer, I'm taking another semester's worth of classes.
2 years of school done in one calendar year.
As long as I stay with my current employer, they'll be covering my tuition (I'll have to work about 40 hour a week, but I nearly do that anyways and I'll have less total hours of school during my year at JuCo) and I'll be getting paid.
Even WAY over estimating that the cost will be 5000 out of pocket, I still save nearly 35,000 dollars, because out of state tuition at UConn or anywhere else would have been around 20,000 a year for the two years I'll be completing.

And after I finish, I can transfer almost anywhere. I'm planning on getting all A's, and with a solid transcript all of a sudden, Stanford is possible. Rice is possible. So many places I wanted to go but knew I wouldn't get in.

I can handle one more year in Houston (hell, if I get into Rice I can handle 3 more years). ESPECIALLY since this one more year means I'm going to have to pay for one less year of schooling than I would have originally. And I have an extra year to grow up and figure things out. One more year to mature or whatever I need to do. Yes, I want to get the hell out of this place BUT if I stay for another year, that becomes easier.

So, there it is. Going to a community college DOESN'T make me a failure. It makes me a smart planner. (I still kind of feel like I've failed. But I haven't. I. Have. Not. Have I?)

I'm having panic attacks. Mostly about getting accepted into college.

I'm also panicking about missing so much school.
So, my solution? To stay home from school. I am clearly a genius.
So I'm panicking even more.
I just want this whole highschool thing to be OVER.

I wanna throw up. Cry. Throw something at something.
I'm not good at handling stress.

Ended up being competely out of character in almost every way possible, except for the fact that he was hella cute and I am hella shallow.

I don't see what's so great about making out, really. Although maybe if he had been completely sober, it would have been different? But still, the whole tongue/saliva thing...eh.

I'm thinking about joining the army. Any information/opinions/advice that any of you have would be greatly appreciated. This would be a MAJOR decision, and I would really like to know what you all think/have encountered/whatever.

Sheffield says he's been the best player on every team he's played on.

Considering he shared uniforms just last year with A-Rod and Mo and almost an entire roster of guys who are better than him, I find that comment to be a bit...ludicrous. And amusing.

Poor, poor Sheffield. I think you're suffering from an over-inflated ego.

You know what's great? Getting 40 dollars each week.

Next week is gonna be a LOT lower because I'm only working today and tomorrow (it's gonna be hella busy, Neil wanted his best//quickest workers there), but still. 40 dollars should be fairly constant...maybe more once I get better. SO COOL. I LOVE MONEY!!!!.

Asa, Dustin, and Trey brought in a keg today, for the party tomorrow. I can tell this is going to be. fun...haha. Only one of the phone girls is over 18, though, so it should be interesting to see if the guys can stop themselves. I don't think they'll be able to. Alcohol (jello shots, keg of beer, etc)+ Hot phone girls (seriously...Jenica is way hot, Shannon and Jackie are cute. Blythe and me, not so much, but still)=fun times.  I seriously can not wait.

Tomorrow, going to cash my paycheck, get my step-mom something AtM related, get my brother some socks that he really wants...and then the rest of the money is for whatever!!! That is so cool. And all of this, added to any that I may get from Christmas...fun stuff!!

I already know what my first after-christmas purchase is going to be! My dad is getting me an iPod, so I'm going to buy one of those speaker things for them, that amplifies the sound for the whole room, ya know? Because I'm a dork and I like to dance and stuff, but I'd rather not have to do it with fear of dropping my iPod. =D! So, if I get the speaker hook-up, I won't have to. Loser=me.

Oh, and NO SCHOOL. Hallelujah. Soooo happy right now!

Collecting my thoughts [Monday,
December 18, 2006 @ 3:07pm]
Okay, so.

Just got back from the store, bought my mom some Milano cookies and a painted horsey, to go along with some frog earings I had gotten her at the Renaissance Festival (and had forgotten about until recently). so 2.50 for the cookies+24.00 for the horse (there was a prettier one for 9 dollars more...but I don't have 9 dollars more)+somewhere around 12.00 for the earings=roughly 40 dollars for her. And I still wanted to spend more. I just...don't have more.

So I'm done shopping for my mom, done shopping for Katelyn, all of my friends that I have known since I was little are taken care of, only because I felt really guilty not getting them any, I really didn't have the money to spare.

Also at the card//random stuff store that I went to, I bought my dad 5 different flavors of cocoa that makes 8 oz hot//4oz cold cocoa. They were only  .75 a piece, so I think that's pretty good...but it also makes me feel like I should get him something more. I'm also probably going to be guilted into getting my step-mom something. Which would mean going back to the store. I can get her soemthign AtM, him a mug or something to go with the cocoa.

And I have to buy my brother some socks (he says he really needs them).

So, assuming I can get the mugs for 10 dollars a piece, and the socks for, like, 7 dollars...that's 27 dollars. And I only have 5 in cash (and probably 5 in change, but I'd rather not break that out if it's avoidable).

I worked 3 days last week, for just under 3 hours each day, but rounding down so that I don't overestimate, we'll go with 2.5 hours. That's 7.5 hours...and I don't know if I'm officially off training yet, so we'll go with the training salary of 5.50...so that would mean 41.25 paycheck.  As far as I know, income taxes AREN'T 35%, so I should have enough to buy everybody something (especially factoring in the fact that I have 5 dollars...which would mean that the taxes could be up to 47%, and there's just no way.)

So, I have enough to finish my Christmas shopping...and, if necessary, my brother's stuff can wait because he's working Christmas Eve eve, Christmas Eve, and Christmas, so anything we have with me, him, and mom will be later. but I should be able to manage.

/end thought process.

So apparently there will be alcohol at the Jackpot Christmas Party.

I get to watch my bosses get smashed. Fabulous!! Haha.
I think I'll resist the "urge" to drink any myself. I want to be able to enjoy watching the bosses drink themselves to the floor and remember it for a long time afterwards haha.
But red and green jello shots! How festive. =P

We saw the new James Bond movie last night. It was AMAZING. I loved it. But, if the boy asks me out again, I'm going to have to tell him that I just can't think of him in any sort of romantical sense. Eeps. BUT: good movie haha.

Found out that we're going to the Aeros game next Friday, and you know what that means? I get to make my "ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS JOSH HARDING" sign because I'm a psycho fangirl that really has nothing to lose. Feel free to talk me out of this, though. But dude. I love me some Josh Harding hahah.

That's all for now, methinks. I can't believe there're only 9 days til Christmas!! Still have to get something for my mom, brother, dad, and step sis. Yikes!

[ mood | depressed ]

On the twelfth day of Christmas, gimme_proonz sent to me...
Twelve rookies drumming
Eleven catchers piping
Ten cats a-leaping
Nine athletes acting
Eight sports a-travelling
Seven books a-writing
Six movies a-reading
Five atla-a-a-anta braves
Four ted williams
Three brian roberts
Two jim edmonds
...and a myself in a noah lowry.
Get your own Twelve Days:

1. Do I get to chose which Atlanta Braves, and can they be from past teams? Because DUDE, Huddy and Farns are at the top of that list. And Jeff Francoeur, Joey Devine...and I'd have to find me one more. I'm sure that will not be difficult.
2. Best. Christmas. Ever. SERIOUSLY. hahah.
3. Not to be terribly crude, but shouldn't the last one be the other way around? Feel free to smack me for that, because I'm fairly sure I deserve it. ;D

and as far as the layout thing goes, everybody's complaining because they can't see their userpics...but I can see mine. I'm very confuzzled.

Movies tonight with Andy. I don't wanna go. *whine*
