So...what's new. I still enjoy the office, the people are great, but the work itself gets really old. I get done with my stuff way faster than anyone else and I'm never given enough to last me through the day. I can't really mess around online too much because everyone that walks by my cubicle can see my screen. So I've taken up writing some short stories in between projects to kinda stretch my work out a bit. I get emails from a writing prompt site and they are awesome. I always suck at coming up with ideas of things to write about so this works out great for me. They do these sentence starter things where they give you the first sentence and you write a short story using it. I did this one today:

Harry was puzzled when the door wouldn't open.Collapse )

I really need to write more, I love doing it and it really is a big stress reliever for me.

8:17 pm - Scared.
Everything seems to be wrong right now. Everything feels wrong.

I signed the lease today for my apartment. I love the apartment. Yet I feel akward. I feel out of place. I feel alone.

I am sick of being alone. And I am scared of what I have done...and scared of the future it brings.

9:55 pm - Ease on down the road.
Things are going pretty decent lately.

I have a new job. The job itself is pretty boring, but I'm really efficient at it so the time don't go by too slow. I also work with really awesome people and the pay rocks.

I'm moving in to my first ever 1 bedroom apartment all on my own. It was more expensive than I planned to spend, but I fell in love with it. I honestly didn't expect my credit score to be good enough to get the place, but the guy liked me and I put down the deposit today! I can move in anytime. I'm so happy to finally have my OWN place. Everyone needs to come visit now, I have plenty of room. Especially given that I also have NO furniture. :P

Flying home tomorrow night!

See you all soon!

Party Party Party!

Tentatively planned party that Tony and I are throwing at his apartment on New Years Eve. We're planning on having drinks (I'd like to make a wop), card games, beer bong, beer pong (I'm gonna make the table!), and tons of fun of course! Call me or post here if you're interested in coming so we can figure out how many to plan for.

Ciao!

9:36 pm - 6 Random Facts
Post 6 different random facts about yourself, and then tag 6 people to continue it.

1.) I'm a pervert.
2.) My grandparents drive me insane but I secretly am really scared of the fact that they are getting older and will be gone someday.
3.) I have 15 years experience, but I only like playing piano when it's not an obligation.
4.) I like to verbally debate. A LOT.
5.) I like using big words a lot, and use dictionary.com to look up new words to find ways to incorporate them into conversation so I look smart.
6.) I really really really really miss college. Though I know I'd hate it once again if I went back.

I offically have decided I want this job permanently. It's only a 2 day temp job though.

Here's the deal. All I do is answer the phone and transfer calls. And they ENCOURAGED that I play around on the net. O_O I'm dead serious. Yay for playing receptionist!!! And I have coffee so I'm totally wired.

Huzzah!!!

1:58 pm - Still no luck.
It's been a week now, and I haven't found a day job. I did get a night job working 4 nights a week delivering pizza. Halfway decent tips. Pretty high paced environment so I like that. And I get to drive my Xterra. Nuff said.

As for the day job search, I had one interview, and he ended up hiring someone else he interviewed after me. So I have another interview set up on Monday. Right now I may just ask for temp positions until christmas, because I don't know how many places want to hire someone right now who's going to be gone for 11 days right after starting work. Blizzard said the same thing, though I could still take their training class after christmas, so I'd say by mid January I'll at least have something. Fingers crossed that I can make ends meet until then.

Life has been a rollercoaster as per usual lately. But not in the regular way for me. More in an...enlightening way. When I get frustrated with the job search I try to put it in perspective. Same with the other things in life that bother me, I've been trying to see stuff in a new light. I think it helps that I have a good group of friends now, who are very supportive and fun to be around. I can feel the change in the wind right around the corner...

8:29 am - La dee da...
Well my mother now knows. It went exactly how I thought it would. Horribly.

She basically was screaming at me. I could barely get a word in edgewise to tell her that I already have another job, as well as work at a temp agency. It was pretty horrid. I hope to god she doesn't wonder "why didn't she call me on thursday when she got fired to talk to me about it? Why did she call Dee instead?" Well mom, I called Dee because I knew she would talk to me like a HUMAN BEING and not just yell and scream about the opportunity of a lifetime that I just fucked up. I KNOW I FUCKED UP. But telling me that isn't getting me the job back. She makes me so angry it makes me physically hurt at times...like now. I tried calling a few people just to talk, no one answered. I'm kind of shaken right now. So I guess I'll just write in here in hopes that it eases me a bit.

In all reality, yes this does suck major balls money wise. And if I want to make the same amount of money, I'm gonna have to get a second job - most likely waitressing. Which I don't mind. I'm going to go for the "higher end" restuarants this time around. Olive Garden is right down the road. There's also a Chili's near by. I think working at a more well known restaurant will hopefully mean more tips. I'm going out this afternoon to pick up applications once my horrid morning scratchy voice goes away.

Bottom line - if I can't make it work, I'm also re-applying to Winona State for spring. AKA, worse comes to worst, I'll just drive home in January. I'm not giving up this vehicle for nothing. Either I make it work out here or I don't. Simple as that.

8:17 am - Day Two.
So it's day two of my "coughing up a lung" fit. I've went through an ENTIRE bottle of NyQuil. Also drank all my juice. So now I get to go out and spread my SARS, as Tony declares that I have, unto the population of Orange while I get more juice and cough syrup. Hopefully I don't keel over or cough myself to death in the process. If only sick days were...less sick and more day. ;)

current mood: sick

2:04 pm - Concert!
Wow, last night was CRAZY.

I went to the Paul Oakenfold concert, and mingled in the back at the merch table. I made friends with the guy, and now I have a new job as a merch chick on the weekends for concerts in Hollywood. Funny how easy it is to meet just the right person who has all the connections. Through meeting this guy, I also got to meet Paul Oakenfold, get stuff signed, and got free drinks all night. The only bummer for the night was the fact that I lost my memory card in my camera - which had over 200 pictures on it, most of which were AWESOME pics I got of Paul. And the only pic I had of Bob, the merch guy. T_T But damn, besides that, I think that was the most fun I've had YET in California. It's nice to be back in the music scene. It's really opened me up to realize how much I really LOVE music.

Best part of the night - I made Bob promise that if he dies I get to be Paul's full time merch chick in his place. :) Can you imagine? Traveling around the world for a living? Seeing the sites? God, it would seriously be a dream come true. DREAM COME TRUE. I'm ecstatic.

10:32 am - Rollercoaster.
My emotions have been an out of control rollercoaster lately. One day I'm overly happy, the next I don't see the point of even being alive. I even have friends down here now that actually call me to go do stuff, and I still just get these mood swings.

I need to find a hobby of some sort, to take my mind off of...well...everything.

I stood in line for 40 minutes today at Best Buy. That's right. I went shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Only because there was an MP3 player that I wanted. And I got to the store, and asked if they had sold out, and the lady had said yeah. So I turned to leave, and on one of their counters, I saw the MP3 player. So I looked around, picked it up, and bought it. Yay! I was going to buy it for my brother, but I think I'm gonna keep it for myself and get him a 512mb one instead of a 1gb one. He doesn't need 250 songs on it. Lord knows he probably doesn't even KNOW that many songs. I was going to buy myself a 5gb one that walmart had on sale today, but of course they were sold out right away. Sucky.

Le sigh, what a pointless day to be at work.

current mood: blah

11:01 am - In an odd turn of events...
Despite my original plan of watching season 4 of X-Files all day long and possibly going to Denny's (the restaurant) by myself for the Thanksgiving Special, I actually have something going on today! My newish friend Janae invited me to go with her to her family dinner. I'm quite nervous since I've never really been in a situation like this where I'm going to another persons family get together. I hope it goes well. Janae is a really cool girl and I really appreciate her thinking about me and inviting me.

I hope everyone has a Happy Turkey Day!

7:28 am - Well holy shit.
Yes, Winona is definitely a soap opera. That's all there is to it. I don't need hollywood, I just need to go back home for a week. Fortunately last weeks episode had an okay ending. Not entirely conclusive, but I'm pretty content and happy as of now.

Then again, that may be due to my brave move last night of MEETING PEOPLE in my apartment complex. I now know people in 3 apartments. Only got 5 hours of sleep last night but it was worth it. :)

current mood: happy
