My life goes from "wow, things are going pretty good" to "I bet that road kill is enjoying life more than I am right now".
Argh! Where to begin.. Lets take the important stuff first. When I moved into this place that Im living in right now, I was able to work any hours any time. Was delivering pizza, so the money was decent, I just didnt have that much of a social life because I was working constantly.. no biggie. I mean Ive got my own place, granted its small and ragged.. but its mine. School semester starts. Have to change jobs, so I get a job at Home Depot, not making as much money if you include tips, but the best im probably going to get thats willing to work around a school schedule. (was trying to get away from tips to a more stable source of income)Work, get my first check.. "hey, thats not to bad, the next one should be about X amount.. this is great!"
Well, an unexpected bill comes in about a week before I was planning on it hitting. So pay that, "damn, money is super tight this week, oh well I get my paycheck in a week..." Woohoo, paycheck is no where near what I was expecting, turns out taxes werent taken out of the first one by accident, no big deal as the taxes from the rest of my checks will cover it. So that problem was corrected, but now I see what my paychecks are really going to be. In summary, I have a choice.. Work more hours (40+ over night a week) and give up school OR stay with school, and move back in with my dad for another year.. "Hi Dad, good bye cherished effiency apartment".
Now, since I was upset over coming to the realization of losing my place to live, life decided to help me out and take my mind off of it. Im hungry last night (was up half the night studying, the other half arguing.. more on that in a second) so I jump in my car to get the finest of meals for any broke man. 3 bean burritos and a large pepsi from Taco Hell.. Open the car door "damn, it seems dark in there.." Woohoo car wont start!! The expense of a new battery really helps with the whole losing the place to live thing..
But lets back track a little. As i said, I work at Home Depot. Late last week, my manager comes to me with a great offer, 40 hours a week, off on weekends, small raise. The catch: its working over night. Going back to the whole school thing, I reluctantly decline his offer. He accepts my rejection by removing me from his department completely to a new deptartment. So I go and talk to the head of that department (hardware) and he says that I start on Monday. So I show up on Monday night, walk over to hardware after clocking in, "hrmm.. nobody is around, they must be helping customers.." 10 mins, 15 mins, 20, 30, 45 mins still nobody there. Finally I see someone that is putting up some merchandise. I go to her and ask if she works in hardware, and if so, could she show me how to do stuff, where stuff is located, etc.. considering Ive never worked over there at all. Her reply? "Nope, I get off in 10 mins, here put this merchandise back on the shelf" After a string of colorful words describing her and her mother goes off in my head, I calmly ask who is here to help me close tonight? "Nobody, your it.." Yes ladies and gents, my first night in that department, and I dont even have so much as a part time cashier to show me how to do anything or how to answer any questions...
Well after the wonderful night of work, I go to school the next day to find out about a test that I thought was a week away is in actuality a day away. Cram time.. I come home to start studying, "damn whats that smell?" Ahh they are refinishing the floors next door (I live in a duplex) and didnt leave any windows open for it to ventilate, thankfully all of the fumes are coming into my house. People, you dont know pleasure until you try to sleep after cramming for a test in a house that reaks of polyurathaine. The headache you have when you wake up (along with all of the bugs in your room from sleeping with a window open) makes taking a test so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend it to anyone who feels they are enjoying life to much right now..
But alas, I do have my girlfriend to go to about all of this right? Wait a sec.. Shes acting all weird. Beautiful, on top of all of this, a week of arguing with her because she picks this week to be "distant queen" with a motto of "There's nothing wrong, why dont you trust me?" (after asking again a few days later) Because having a girlfriend that you get to talk to once a night for less than an hour and see every other week is normal behavior. If I wanted a relationship like that, I would have found someone on the opposite coast from the net!! But Im sure many in-town long distance relationships work all the time..
Hayel yeah, its friday! Cant wait to see what the rest of the week brings. At this point if it gets any worse, running with a pair of rusty scissors wouldnt be considered dangerous I swear..
