What day is it again?
Friday. 8.30.13 7:42 pm
Six days down. Seven more to go. I've almost officially lost track of what day of the week it is. By the middle of next week, I'm going to be loopy.

I had this whole paragraph typed out about the stigma associated with women shaving their legs, but it became too long and jumbled that I decided to just delete it.

The next few days I'll only be working just the one job. I'm afraid I'll get spoiled having my afternoons freed up again that come Tuesday when I have to go back to Sam's, I'll be more annoyed than I should be that I'll have to give up my afternoons. Oh well. The money will be worth it in the end.

I finally went grocery shopping. I knew that if I came home I wouldn't go back out again, so I stopped at Trader Joe's and grabbed some food that will last me, at the very least, until I get paid again. If I continue to portion control my food, it should last me well past payday.

Alright, I'm gonna finish watching videos on YouTube and bounce around the internet for a while before I call it a night.

Until tomorrow. . .

Pseudo day off
Thursday. 8.29.13 9:23 pm
I only had to work from 5-9 tonight so the rest of the morning, I pretty much spent sitting on my bum in front of my computer enjoying the fact that it was my only {mostly} day off until a week from tomorrow. Next Friday will be my next day off from both jobs and even that won't be a day of resting and lazing around because it's payday so I'll have errands to run. Ugh.

I was supposed to go grocery shopping today, but since I really wanted to take advantage of the fact that I didn't need to be anywhere until later in the day, I ended up just turning today in to a day of fasting. I ate nothing. Tomorrow is technically my cheat day, but I'm probably not gonna go too overboard. I'll probably just get a breakfast sandwich from Safeway and maybe whatever the special is at Cafe Abodegas for lunch. I may or may not get something for after work.

I'll have the next 4 days off from Sam's, due to the weird scheduling at my regular job so that's actually kind of nice. I'll go back to having some of my afternoons freed up. I may actually get my grocery shopping done one of those days haha.

Alright, I need to get ready for bed here in the next hour or so. Hopefully tomorrow isn't crazy busy at work. I really don't want to deal with a whole lot. Now that I've said that, however, it'll probably be super busy.

Until then. . .

Monies

So I worked 4 extra hours at my regular work today. It'll help out some because that money will be on the rent check.

I pretty much get paid every week, but the money from the second job will only be going toward my trip. I'll keep an eye on the amount until there's enough to secure the trip, but once that happens, I'll probably hide the account from being able to see it so that I'm not even tempted. Then once I get to Vegas, I'll be able to access it.

Tonight at work was kind of annoying. I'm getting tired of being super nice to everyone. I'm also getting tired of people who are dicks to me. Working in customer services jobs has created a whole new respect for people who are in the same profession and I'm the consumer.

I will not be working any overtime tomorrow because I want at least one half day type thing to myself. I'll have some afternoons available to me, but getting to sleep in and lounge around is something that is far and few between at this point. I also still have to go grocery shopping so we'll see if I can actually get that done tomorrow.

Yep, that's it for tonight. I wasn't planning on getting the entry written this late, but I almost forgot about it. Luckily there was still plenty of time before midnight so I didn't have to worry about forgetting.

Until tomorrow. . .

I've got it bad
Tuesday. 8.27.13 9:54 pm
Oh man. Tonight, I think, has been worse for me than any other night. He actually came up to the break room and we talked, alone, for a good 10 minutes. He never goes to the break room! He's got an office of his own to go to ... but I was up there and he came up there and we talked. Gah!

I keep trying to tell myself that it was just a coincidence; that he was just up there to get a soda and was being nice by staying and talking to me. He talks to most people... It's all in my head. I have to keep telling myself this so that I'm not deluding myself in to thinking there's something there that isn't.

However, I'm completely acknowledging the fact that my heart skipped a couple beats when I saw him come up the stairs and again when we were the only two in the room. It does the same thing whenever he gets close to me ... like tonight when he was helping the cashier behind me ... it took everything in me not to turn around and watch what he was doing. He's off the next two nights, which makes me sad and happy at the same time. I won't have to worry about being distracted, but I do enjoy the distraction. And the interactions.

I have to calm down about this, but seriously ... it's driving me nuts. There has to be something about him that I can use {other than the fact that he's my manager} to deter these wild thoughts. He's single, within the 10 year gap I'm allowing myself for dating potential, owns his own house, I'm assuming has a car, is financially stable. There has to be something. It's gonna really bum me out when I find out what it is, but it's for the better.

If there isn't anything, then I have to at least wait until December. I need this job for my vacation, but once that's over, I will probably not voice my opinions.

Other than me going of my mind, the day was fairly uneventful. I'll have the rest of this week and in to next week to relax and get my mind back under control since he's off the next two days and I'm off the next four days after that.

I'm definitely looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow and the next day. I must go grocery shopping tomorrow and I'm really thinking I'll do so at Trader Joe's. I haven't gone shopping there for a while and I have some extra money from this last paycheck so I should be okay. Besides, since I've already put it off this long, I only have to buy food to last me a week and a half rather than two weeks.

It'll be really nice sleeping in tomorrow. My alarm is already turned off.

Until then. . .

Stuff happens
Monday. 8.26.13 9:36 pm
With my regular job, all my breaks are paid so I usually just kind of take them whenever I want. At the part time job they're regulated so the supervisor got upset when I hadn't received my break on time. I told him that I knew it was policy, but I really didn't mind. He just kept apologizing and even told me to clock out a few minutes later so that I could get a full 15 minute break. I told him with the job tomorrow morning, I'd rather clock out on time and just take the hit. He played off that he didn't hear anything and let me go.

I know that it's the rules, but sometimes things happen and people don't get their breaks when they're supposed to. It's really not a big deal. Now, if I had been there for 6 hours or more without getting a break, I might have said something. The machines won't let it go that long anyway, but still. When I'm only working 4 hours, not taking a break is no big deal for me.

Tomorrow I have both jobs to work, but then Wednesday and Thursday I'll get to sleep in, which working 4 hours each evening at the part time job. Tonight went well; I wasn't working with people in a bad mood and there was a different closing manager, so I wasn't distracted by anything. I have a feeling I'm not going to be so lucky tomorrow night. As long as I don't have to deal with a repeat of Saturday night then everything should be fine. I can handle people not being in a good mood and I can handle the distraction of my crush, but I'd rather not have to deal with both at the same time.

The weather has started to hint at Autumn coming. There's a chance of rain every day this week with the temps only reaching up to the low-mid 70s. It's definitely a nice break from the sunny 80s that we've been having all summer. I can finally give my fan a break; although, this summer was a lot more mild than last summer. I'm definitely looking forward to when the highs are only in the 60s and the chances of rain increase.

Until tomorrow. . .

Helping out.
Sunday. 8.25.13 6:56 pm
After work today, I went over to my coworker's place to assist him and his girl with their move. We pretty much had a caravan going with 4 different cars. It was cheaper than renting a U-Haul, especially since one of the people had a big pick up truck. It took 3 trips in about 3 hours to get everything that was left up to the new place. This included a pizza break. They had a lot of the stuff moved over to the new place already. Pretty much what was left was the bigger items and some of the smaller, necessary items that couldn't go until the last minute. Luckily it wasn't too far of a trip. I might have used maybe a gallon of gas, give or take.

I told my coworker that I had a crush on his friend. He laughed, but that was about it. I was expecting more teasing, but I didn't get it. That will probably be the only time I bring it up to him, but I feel a little better now that I've said something. Too bad I can't just get over it and move on. It wouldn't be that easy.

I have a couple more hours before I call it a night. I work both jobs tomorrow so I'll need to make sure I get a decent amount of sleep tonight. If anything, I can always nap between jobs, but that tends to make me cut it close and I'd rather not deal with worrying about whether I'll be on time or not. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

Until then. . .
