I have no idea when I should quit.

This week could be my last, or I could prolong it one more pay period.... Probably going to go with the latter as I'm not ready to stop getting paid yet.

I bet she's thrilled about your plans next week, huh? :lol:


They've known about those plans for awhile. She's been expecting it. Plus, our third person in the office will be fully trained tomorrow, so now she can stop bitching.

I applied for an 11-7 position that's open on 2nd floor at work. I hate 3rd floor. I thought 2nd was bad but I didn't know just how good it was until I worked up here on 3rd floor. It's awful.

I've already worked out a schedule for myself since I'll be working overnight if I get it. I can go to bed around 7:30 and wake up at 3 and then actually get shit done. And I'll never have to stay late because dayshift is always overstaffed! I really hope I get the position because I need to get off this floor. Plus my part-time paychecks suck so I need the full time.

Once you get used to overnights they become so easy! When I first started doing them (I worked 10-6:15) I would get soo much sleep beforehand but once I got used to them I could wake up at 9am, go to work at 10 pm and not go to bed until 10 or 11 the next morning and not even be tired :P I guess that's not really a good thing though hahah

Just had a meeting about my in-classroom hours and what subjects I'll be taking this year. Going to be busy as fuck. I've been given a whole load of radio modules and research classes, and possibly a second tutor group. Plus I still have to finish my teaching qualification which I've not heard a word about, which'll be after work on Tuedsay now it seems. At least I'll be too busy to go out and spend the wages.

Well, I can imagine another co-worker who is less than enthused about it ;)

Thats the best thing about working too much -- no time to spend the money :P

I think I'm going to stay on at least one more pay period. Got a couple known days off for next week so I'll definitely be down to only 3 days at the store which is fine by me.

All the people I really liked working with have gone back to school so all that's left is my friend and one of the girls I'm starting to really dislike so yknow

CONGRATS! ! So happy (and jealous) that you got your dream job with just 2 applications. That is so amazing and so are you and really happy they saw that in you right away.

Guessing you'd be EVP after Lone being COO. :)
