Well you disappeared so often like you dissolved into coffee.

Last night I went to this training session for Best Buy in the hopes that I would win a laptop or an HP Touchpad that they give away. Of course, my lack of luck won out over my enthusiasm and I was left with a twenty dollars in Dave and Buster's and Subway gift cards. I was only 100% depressed about not winning anything. But it actually ended up being sort of fun. There was a bar and George and I were literally the only ones who utilized it. So I was the only one out of 100 people who was tipsy. I laughed the whole time and made too much noise while the man was giving his presentation. 
When ever he was done talking about what looked like printers, we took our free 10 dollars worth of points and went to the arcade. I played a whole bunch of shooting games with my new best friend, lost about 30 rounds of basketball with George and perfected my slandering ability. I'm getting so good at that.
I'm also getting really good at being a 12 year old girl. 
It's kind of flattering.
This is why I need a real job so I don't get sucked into all of this drama.

The poets are just kids who didn't make it

I need to stop blogging on my phone. I get such terrible typos this way. No one reads my blog anymore anyway so it's all good.

I just can't sleep.
I'm not mad at anyone which is weird.
I'm not really that sad which is weird as well.
I am a little confused but not to a point where I can't sleep.

I think the only way to remedy this situation is to eat.
I have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning at some point I just honestly have no idea when.

What to eat...

So, in a desperate attempt to figure out what I want to do with my life, I'm going to blog about the pros and cons of the various jobs/positions I currently hold. Remember now, 98% of the points are going to be cons because this is me and my glass is half empty.

Best Buy: I don't care enough to work there. Everyone else knows so much about the product and my reaction to about 80% of questions a customer asks me is "let me bring you over to _______". And I'm basically screwed when we're busy and no one can help me. I like almot everyone that works there, though, that's the only bonus. And I feel comfortable. But we all know who works there that I don't like... It's becoming monotonous though, as we all knew I would get bored with it and want to move on.

TSS: this is a horrible job. Well, okay it's actually a really nice, easy job I'm just not cut out to work with people with disabilities. Honestly, I'm not sure I'm. It out to work with people in general. I need a desk job. Anyway, I have no idea what I was thinking when I applied/ took this job. I'm drafting my two weeks in a few minutes. I feel terrible about quitting because that's not really my M.O, but whatever. I don't want to waste my clients time. Look at how mature I'm being. The only pro of the job is the fact that it keeps my mind busy and I don't think about how sucky my life is.

Volunteering: who knows if you even know what I do. 90% of the time I drive out to Oakland and sit like a receptionist except I'm too scared to answer the phones so I stare at the wall and text or blog. Sometimes I get to meet with girls who either think they are pregnant, might have an STD or are pregnant and need some extra help. I like doing that when I get along with the girls. It makes me really nervous when I have to counsel 40 year old women on healthy relationships since I've never been in one myself. The best thing about working here is that it's helping me sort out my values. I always knew what I wanted to an extent but seeing these girls in here and constantly hearing/telling girls hat they're worth so much more than a one night stand kind of thing and how to not let boys pressure them in any way... Well, that's uplifting. If only I was better at getting my words out, I'd be able to inspire these girls to have self- esteem. And that's really what I want to do.

Old navy: this waste of time serves no purpose. No one even knows me there. I have to wake up at 5 am for my shift. It's boring. I don't even like anyone except Patty. Remind me why I'm there again? Oh right, the 50% discount...

And now I'm going to learn about STD's so I can teach my 4 o'clock client about them.

take a breath. don't it sound so easy.

You know, All Time Low, maybe it isn't my weekend, but I highly doubt it's going to be my year. Stop singing that to me.

Did I tell you I got a new job?
I'm working with kids with special needs.
I think I said that before.

I'm just going to keep with the mantra "anything is better than Best Buy"
And I'm just going to go back to school and change everything.
