Sorry for the week long-ish hiatus. I’ve literally been running around for the past few weeks. The good news: I got two jobs. Which means money will actually be in my pocket for a change (I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere)! It really sucked in the years of yore whenever any of my friends wanted to hang out, I would sometimes have to decline because I was mindful of stretching out that last $10 or $20, because God only knew when I would get more of it.
Looking back, I kind of cringe and shake my head at how utterly lazy and lethargic I was up until recently-ish. Sadly, it’s a symptom of my sometimes “entitled” generation.
Anyways, my first job is at a retail store. It’s…retail. It’s literally you’ve done one, you’ve done them all. You have the wonderful people – like the Latino guy who sounds like Seth Rogen – legit! And then there’s those anal-retentive perfectionist bots. I sometimes wonder if they realize how shitty the pay is. Surely they must know! But I digress.
Second job is a temp, but fabulous. Working as a receptionist for a nonprofit. I absolutely love nonprofits! It is easily the easiest job I’ve ever done. All I do is answer and transfer calls and open the door from my desk. Love it. I’m thinking about temping for a bit because it looks cool. And if I get consistent temp work, or maybe even doing work as an extra, then I won’t have to do the retail thing.
The bad news: I have two jobs. The receptionist job is an 8:30- 5, and the other job is 6-10, and weekends 12-8. So I’m working 7 days a week. I have zilch free time. Which is ok for now, but I’m tired all the time. I get maybe 5 hours of sleep a day. But maybe it’s karma, for all the laziness I accrued over the years.
But enough of that! I’m excited because I finally get my new phone next week! Woot! Fist pump!
