Tonight, on “This is Your Life…”

My laptop is still jacked up, which is why I haven’t been updating my blog.  Too much typing.

___

I’m still at the job (been there for a month as of 8/11 – halfway to my 60-day goal before a pay raise and ACTUAL hiring), but it’s quickly becoming clear to me that I need to keep my options open.

First, there’s no reinforcement given at this job, aside from someone occasionally yelling at me.  Most of the time, I’ve made a mistake, and can fix it.  Other times (like my first week, and today), a mistake has been made, and it’s honestly not my fault, because the girl who was put in charge of training me either forgot to tell me something, or just flat-out lied.

Yes, lied.  While training me.  WTF.  And everyone believes her, because I’m new.  Naturally.

She’s also the resident Drama Queen, so that’s been fun.

Anyway, I’m still there.  The job’s still tedious as fuck.  The only entertainment is still gossip.  I still hate that aspect.

I don’t feel like talking about it, any more.  I mean, I’m glad to have a job.  I’m not leaving any time soon (I’d have to find something else, first, and like THAT’S going to happen…hah), but to feel like a blip in such a small office is really, ridiculously demeaning.

Okay, I’m done talking about work.

___

My car broke again!  I got it fixed, and now I’M broke!  Woo!

I’m currently looking to sell my car and buy another (used) car, preferably one that I’m familiar with, and that Forrest and his friends can help me work on at home.

___

My health’s been pretty constant.  I figured out that it’s likely not dairy causing my issues.   I’m leaning toward gluten.  I haven’t delved completely into a gluten-free existence, yet, because it’s difficult and expensive as fuck, but I’m taking baby steps.  Beginning this job hasn’t helped, because it screwed up my schedule juuuuuuuust enough to where planning meals is a little difficult.

I haven’t lost any weight, but I haven’t gained any, either.

___

I swear I had more to talk about.  I’m just…apathetic.

I took on another tutoring client purely for the money, even though it’s going to be an inconvenience.

Other than tutoring and work, my life doesn’t really have anything else in it.  Work’s boring, and tutoring isn’t something I want to blog in detail about, so I’m left with blank pages and nothing to say.  I don’t even want to comment on current events, because they’re annoying me.

So Squeaky’s kind of broken right now.

Oh, I turned 28 last week.  I’m officially in my late 20s.  Yay.

Yeah.  I’m boring.  Sorry.

    my solution for tedious jobs (and i’ve had more than a few) was to get really really fast at them. like that would be a problem for you…

  • Happy Birthday? Hang in there.
    gfa

  • Keep at it. Things are better for you than they were a year ago, and in a year they’ll be better still.

  • Hey, your job’s training procedure sounds EXACTLY like mine! I’m always getting blamed for mistakes due to my predecessor’s effective disinformation campaign.

    I wish I could offer more comfort about the boring life bit, though. I’m only turning 27 at the end of the year, and I already feel as though all the excitement in my life has all but vaporized. Maybe it’s because I hardly have any friends living in my immediate (or even the tri-state) vicinity…

    Just wish I had more money for some loud, explosive, high-velocity therapy.
