Okay, okay.

It's been months. MONTHS! I'm not usually this bad, and I have a really good reason!

I'm fucking tired. This semester is a no-nonsense semester. I've got accounting at fuckin' 8 in the morning, everyday, Monday through Thursday. As if accounting wasn't bad enough, it's early. I have to wake up at 6. I know, I know, there's a billion other people who wake up earlier than I do, but that doesn't make it much better. Then I've got math. We literally went from numbers to dividing and multiplying letters.

LETTERS. Is that even possible?! I swear they're just making this shit up so we have to stay in class longer. Oh, and the class is almost 3 hours long, with a not-so-merciful 10 minute break (I got a longer break with my 2 hour class!) Oy. At least the teacher is good.

Though I am being a bit of a wuss, since on Monday/Wednesday I'm home at around 1pm, and then I have a 3 day weekend... BUT STILL. I only have 3 classes, but they total 12 units, which is a full semester. Thank God I dropped my business class, or I don't know what I would do. Probably complain to Mike, which I already do quite often. Oh, how he puts up with me ♥ 

I've also been putting in job applications, which has worked and not worked. The first three places, to remain anonymous, had signs outside their little stores with "NOW HIRING!!" hanging. So I applied, like any other college student who's desperate for extra cash. Business number 1 told me, "we're not hiring right now, but we will be in a couple weeks. We're just accepting applications right now." That's great, so I went on my way, and called back 2 weeks later. Still not hiring, but they will in another few weeks! Call back a few weeks later, nope. Not hiring. 

Business number 2, a popular general department/drug/grocery store again had a nice big sign up for everyone to see, "NOW HIRING!" So Mike, even though he's been hired to a security company, decided to apply with me. I think it was to convince me to apply (though I didn't put up much of a fight :P) and the way their online application process goes is they have a list of all their positions, and you click on the ones you wish to apply for. Every single one, even the manager positions, weren't hiring. Mike tried his, too, and the same thing. So he went to ask one of the employees about why it's not working, and they said, "oh yeah, that sign is always up. We're not actually hiring."


Third place! Same scenario, had a sign, applications to take and fill out, etc. I do just that, and turn it in. Call back a couple weeks later, speak to the manager and he says, "I'm busy right now, but if you give me your name and number I'll call you back." He never did. So I decided to call back again, and surprise surprise! "Oh we're not hiring at this location." 

Like, fuck that. And I went over there a day or two after that (it was on the way to the grocery to Mikes old place) and guess what? They still had the sign up. 


Sadly, I'll still eat there because their food is delicious. Bad for you, but delicious. I can't win!

So, chop chop, I'm going to upload a bunch of pictures, and I'll put them on a schedule so they can update one a day or so, that way I won't bombard you. I've got a ton of them, most still need editing which I'm going to do now. 

Unless I fall asleep.
