12 days ... O.O
Thursday. 11.25.10 11:10 pm
I just realized that I'll be working 12 days in a row. Holy shit.

Wednesday, 11-24 through Sunday, 12-5.

This is going to be a very long {almost} 2 weeks.

I've got to be at Target tomorrow morning at 7am. And I'll be working that shift until 3:30pm. I normally wouldn't care about it, but tomorrow is Black Friday. At least I can be thankful for the fact that I won't be there at 4am when the store opens and I won't be there when the store closes. I'm almost afraid of what the store would look like at the end of the day. On a normal day just the toy section alone is a scary section to straighten up. But at the end of the busiest shopping day of the year? Damn, I'm glad that I'll just be there in the middle of the madness.

After that, though, I'll only be working at Target 2 more days. I put in my two week notice since they're not willing to work around my full time schedule. And the shifts they had me already scheduled for, I put on the list so that people can pick up the extra hours they're looking for. If they all get covered, then I'll be considered rehireable. If not, then I won't be eligible for rehire. I'm not terribly concerned. Not being able to work at Target shouldn't affect me in any way, shape or form.

Anywho, since I do need to be up at 6am tomorrow morning, I need to get to bed.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and got the chance to have some good eats.

Until next time NuTang ...

We have our own internet now. We've been bumming the net from someone's unsecure network over the last few days, which is how I've been able to post in the shout box. But because it wasn't our network, the connection wasn't the greatest.

But now that we have our own internet connection, I'll be able to get on here more frequently.

The weather has been crazy the last two days! The roads are all iced over right now. Even though the sun was out today, the temperature didn't get above 27. The snow and ice didn't have a chance to melt. It just froze some more. My car is probably very confused right now lol. I bought it in the desert and even the one time I drove out of state {before coming here} I went to another desert. There's ice stuck on my car and the tire tread is filled with snow and slush. Jacob has been using my car to drive places because his is stuck in the bottom parking lot ... at the bottom of a steep, icy hill.

I haven't driven in these conditions yet, but I need to work tomorrow. Which also means he'll need to get his car unstuck because I won't be home from work before he needs to leave for work. Hopefully things have melted some by tomorrow afternoon.

Anywho, I'm gonna go eat and enjoy the fast connection that we finally have.

Until next time NuTang ...

I might be without internet for a while
Friday. 11.19.10 10:42 pm
Alright, so here's what's happened since the last entry. I started my new position. Yesterday was my first day of training, but it was at a different site. I basically learned the computer system there. Today was my first day training at the actual site and I've got so much to learn. There are {I think} 7 buildings total to patrol, but only a few of them are being used to their capacity. One of the buildings is abandoned, but we still have to patrol it.

It's at a hospital so I have to deal with crazy people and dead people. Should be fun ... there's a morgue at this hospital and they do autopsies on site. I wonder how that's going to be the first time I walk in on patrol and the person is in there working on a body. I'll definitely write about it lol.

We are moving into our apartment tomorrow. Which is why we'll probably be without internet for a while. It's not the cost per month that's the issue; it's only $30/month {for the first year,} but the installation is $50. We don't exactly have that right now. But as soon as we get the net again, or if I take my laptop to Starbucks or Borders, Barnes and Noble, etc, I'll update what's going on.

I'm excited. It's our first place.

Anywho, I'm gonna go. Even though I don't work tomorrow, I'm still tired. I probably won't go to bed quite yet; it's still early, but I wouldn't be surprised if I were in bed by midnight.

Until next time NuTang ... {which could be a short while; no more than a month, tops}

SO ... if I don't get on before next week then have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

waiting games and power surges
Monday. 11.15.10 9:57 pm
I had an interview this morning, which went well and I have another tomorrow morning. I understand that this is all part of the job search, but it's annoying. Especially since I don't have the money to do anything in my down time to pass the time. Hell, I just had to have Jacob fill up my tank because I'm down to my last couple bucks. Hopefully tomorrow proves something ... promising.

There wasn't much rain today; a little earlier this morning, but it let up after an hour or so. The winds have picked up, however and it's causing the power to surge. The lights aren't going completely off, but they're dimming a couple times an hour. Since the possibility of power outages are higher here than in Vegas, I should probably buy a car charger at some point. Just in case my phone is down to it's last bar and I need to charge it for work or something I'll be able to drive around for a little bit.

Like everything else, though, that'll have to wait until I have a good paycheck. I'll have a paycheck on Friday, but it won't be more than $200. That'll barely cover my end of the month bills. Speaking of bills ... I need to go pay one. With what money? I'm not sure. I'll figure something out.

Until next time NuTang ...

with every good there has to be a bad ...
Monday. 11.8.10 6:55 pm
First, the good:

I start Target tomorrow, but you all knew that if you had read the last entry. So simply having that income is a good thing. Northwest Protective called me today and scheduled me for an interview on Wednesday morning. This is the security company Jacob works for and hopefully the company that will provide me with a full time job. A full time income. I'm not sure what I'll be starting out at or where they would have me working. I'll find all that out on Wednesday.

Now for the bad:

Due to my having to abandon the apartment that I shared with my sister and owing them as much money as I do, I have a feeling the apartments that we checked out today won't approve us to live there. Which really, really sucks because it's a nice place. The apartment itself is small, but spacious enough for the two of us. The area it's in is nice and things are close by, most importantly the highway. We'll be turning in the applications tomorrow, but I seriously have a feeling that black mark on my record will fuck it all up.

On their paperwork, there is the option of possibly paying an additional deposit, after the initial one, so maybe we'll get that option. We really aren't bad people and besides the abandonment and letting one credit card max out, my bills have been paid on time. Maybe if I explain my situation it'll make a difference, but I'm not sure. I'm really not expecting them to approve us. It really sucks. If they don't approve us, then that makes me wonder even who will?

Anywho, here's to hoping the Northwest interview proves good and that maybe the apartments will be lenient. Only time will tell.

Until next time NuTang. . .

leaving soon
Sunday. 11.7.10 10:31 pm
So some shit went down yesterday. We've basically been kicked out ... but in a nice way. She's still letting us stay and hasn't said exactly when she wants us out, but she was very, very interested in when we planned on leaving. That's the problem in staying with a person who is very used to living by themselves. Even simply having another person in the home, let alone two, becomes an inconvenience. It's not like we're in her way all the time or trashing the house. When we're not out and about, we pretty much keep to ourselves in the bedroom. The volume on our computers stays low. We don't eat her food; we buy our own. The dishes are kept clean and everything is neat. But she's really set in her ways and due to the little incident when her dead bolt locked up on us and we had to break into her house, she's been on edge since. It's not like we purposely fucked up the dead bolt. It just broke ... in the locked position. And with her living on the second floor, there was no way to even break in through a window. It's been fixed since, but she's still wanting to know how our progress is going on moving out.

We've got this one apartment complex that we'll be checking out tomorrow morning. The prices are reasonable. I drove past the area today; it's in a nice area right by a lake. And we're really hoping we'll be able to get it. It's a one bedroom and the important thing is that its cheaper than the apartments we were looking at in the downtown area. One definite bonus is that there is a washer and dryer in the unit. No having to deal with community laundry facilities or dragging the wash down to the local laundromat. I'm really, really hoping this place works out for us. So fingers crossed.

Uhm, I start work on Tuesday. It's only part time, but a little income is better than none. I've got my uniform ... a bunch of red shirts and a few pairs of khaki pants. Target isn't specific. You can wear any color red shirt and any color khaki pants as long as the shirt is solid and doesn't have any logos or designs on it. They're not strict on piercings or tattoos so that's cool. This will be a good job.

Anywho, I'm gonna read some. Till next time NuTang ...
