Hello! It’s time for another #purrsonal!
I can’t believe the last post was on May 6th, and I was complaining about having to work 15 hour days Friday-Sunday: ”I don’t really need a second job. I don’t know why i’m pushing myself so much and getting rid of my free/sleep time. I just feel like i’m never doing enough. Although, it’ll be nice to actually have some extra money.”
Well, turns out I needed that second job. Why? The following week on May 11th, also considered “mother’s day” this year, was the day I was strangled by a customer at my beloved ex-job. Woo! Leaving out the legal process of it all, the guy is now in jail for dragging me out of the grocery store while keeping me in a headlock. Yay justice! Unfortunately for my employer, that also lead to the loss of their best supervisor. I’m not kidding. An 18 year old was their best supervisor.
I hand-wrote a resignation letter with a few spelling mistakes and awful penmanship, to represent their unprofessional way of interacting with higher-positioned employees (they treated us like high school cashiers). After having my Employer see my instagram post ( http://instagram.com/p/n35W4ryngs/?modal=true )
he tried to put me down by saying it was very immature of me, and I told him my honest opinion about the whole situation, which was that I wanted to exploit my workplace for the terrible working conditions it provided for its employees. He then tried to beg me to stay longer, but I said I couldn’t work somewhere I had to fear my life.
Thus, becoming full-time at the airport! It’s an incredibly easy job. I make what I used to make as a cashier at my last job in a week, in one day. It’s pretty great. My co-workers are alright. I definitely miss my previous ones’.
I went to governor’s ball, went to ecuador, and went to maine.
I also spent a decent amount with Matt. I didn’t get to spend as much time as I wanted to, but that was very understandable granted we were both very busy. However, this allowed for some very special times when we did hang out. We never hung out and got bored, as opposed to last year when we would be bored of just “hanging out.” I told him about the “third eye” and he was very cool about it, and didn’t think I was a freak, which is really awesome. I’m so happy for how his year is going, and my fear of us growing apart has definitely gone away. I love him so much.
School is just around the corner. I’m taking precalc2, java 2, homepage and website, and computer math concepts. I’ll also be switching to part-time, working 24-32 hours at my job.
I’m not sure if I’ll be transferring in the spring. I really want to just get my associates over with and take some time off. I know that sounds like a bad idea, but I just want to work and make money for a while. A while meaning a year, no longer than that. Maybe even half a year. With this airport job, I can save a few grand in just half a year.
Oh, also, I’ve booked my trip to Japan and China! I leave July 11th, 2015. I’m so excited. I’ll be backpacking with a group of people through major cities in Japan and China, and I could not be happier.
I realize this is quite a lengthy #purrsonal, but I really needed to catch up when I realized how long it’s been since I last posted.
Anyways, the picture is of my “new” desk. The reason it’s “new” is because it used to have a top part where my CDs and my printer and a few books were, but I didn’t have enough room to do my homework, which lead me to do my homework on my bed for the past year, which led me to go to sleep instead. So, I removed it, and now I can fit my desktop, my laptop, AND paperwork! It’s made me very excited for this semester. I’ve also decorated the wall surrounding it, and it feels so great to sit there and be creative.
I have plans of making an iPhone app, by the way, but that’s a separate post.
Total sidenote: I typed this whole post while listening to some songs that Brandon insisted on me listening to. He’s very sweet, sometimes. Other times he catches my record-recording mistakes and makes me repost videos. That makes no sense to anyone else.
Well, I’ll post the next time I remember to post. I’m happy.
