So I didn't plan on making a new entry so soon, but guess what? BIG NEWS:

I GOT LAID-OFF~

RIP: JCPenney Employee Discount.

I'm not as upset as I thought I'd be (except about the employee discount sob), probably because it's been over a month since I've been there seeing as they cut my hours back so much. I was going to look for something closer to home in the summer anyway, and they said they'll take me back for Seasonal work still, so there's always that!

Just kind of wish I didn't have to be the one to call and find out. :| That was sorta really lame, ngl.

SO TO COUNTERACT THE BAD STUFF hey guys I finally did that accent meme that was going around! Yes I actually do type how I talk and occasionally ignore everything about punctuation just so I can go on a long winded rant about nothing in an attempt to make people laugh AREN'T I AWESOME? I'm also talking a little silly on purpose because I talk silly when talking to my friends. AND YOU GUYS ARE MY FRIENDS SO HAVE AT IT.

UNRELATED TO EVERYTHING BUT isn't this icon prettyyyyy~?

I think I'm doing good in school right now. I think. One of my classes, I won't really know until after the midterm. I'm doing pretty damn well in astronomy, even though I either skip or fall asleep in lectures every time. Japanese is going good too, but I should practice speaking more. I still stumble over my words way too much. I know I already do that enough when trying to speak English and that's my native language. :|;; In my Modern Japan class, I just have to keep up with the readings and I'll be fine. I also take some seriously bad ass notes in that class, ngl.

I finally have work this weekend! I haven't had worked in over a month. It's ridiculous. I'm going to go back and they'll be like "WHO ARE YOU AGAIN...?" At least I wasn't laid off after the holidays... and this means I get paid in two weeks! Although as nice as it is having this job, I already know I'll be looking for an alternative come the summer. I may have my bus pass while attending school, but in the summer I have to pay to ride every time, and they keep raising the cost... it'll be $5 to get to work and back everyday. Hopefully I can find something in Covington so I can just walk...

I still have to do taxes and file the FAFSA... and I still haven't heard back from the IPE office about studying abroad. Is it bad that a small part of me hopes I don't get it just so I don't have to go through the horrors of getting a student visa and applying for extra aid and scrambling to find money for food while I'm over there...? Why so expensive, Japaaaan... D:

But my daily life is boring. Let's move on to why I really posted this! So I heard there was this meme where you chose like 15 characters from different fandoms who were your favorite or something...


THIS IS TOTES A CUT WITH PICTURES UNDER IT )
randomsnarfle: (Tsundere Service~)
So, since I started working, that's been my life. Working. I complained to my mom about it and she was all WELCOME TO THE WORKING WORLD~ Yeah, things are a little different for her. She drives to work and sits at a desk all day. I commute by bus and stand all day.

All. Day. As in, I'm not allowed to sit unless I'm on break. Not even for a second.

I'm not complaining that I have the job, but just because I have one while other people are looking for work doesn't mean I have to like it and can't complain. Cry me a river, my dad's been unemployed since 2008 and his unemployment checks run out soon. Trust me, I know what it's like for people who can't find jobs in this economy. |:

BUT ANYWAY it's not even the work that bugs me. It's the goddamn commute. It takes me 2 hours to get to South Center by bus. 2 hours to get there, 8 hours of work, 2 hours to get home (which involves waiting around the creepy Kent Station bus terminal until the Covington bus comes, since it only runs hourly)... that leaves me 12 hours of the day to myself. Then it takes me an hour to get ready in the morning and an hour to wind down for bed... that's 10 hours. I need 8 hours of sleep to function.

Do you see where I'm getting at here? 2 hours of free time on days when I work. So far, I've just been taking away from the sleeping part of my day. Doesn't help that I've had insomnia lately too; I'm exhausted and ready to sleep until I lay down. Then I'm alert and wide awake. 

I feel bad. I just started trying to RP again and there goes my free-time. I know I'll be okay at SBG because I still get at least two days off a week and no one should mind if I have to back-tag into forever (right...?) but waiting a week for a tag isn't really something I can get away with at the Elegante. I keep trying to work up the courage to make a drop post...

Aside from the paychecks, the one good thing about working is it makes the summer go by faster. I've started to really dislike summer these past few years and this year's summer has really cemented it; I can't stand not being in college. I miss my home. UW is my home. 3: I have more freedom, more free-time, and there's always food. I actually feel motivated while I'm there. My family's house is like a motivational black hole; good for relaxing, but good luck trying to get anything else done.

As of right now, I am in agony from a headache and a sore body from working, so I'm gonna end this here... yeah.
