Journal Entry (#27)

Alright, guys, I’m still a slacking just a bit this week, but this time it’s because I’m so exhausted from work. The last two days have been kind of awful. Monday started with everyone being late and just being behind on everything all day. And then I tried to help by cutting french fries and I lost a screw to the fry cutter…. inside the buckets. Had to go through all 4 buckets that I cut, only to find it in the first one I did (the last one I checked). That should sum up Monday. And yesterday? The first gorgeous day of the year, which meant everyone was coming in to by beer and it made it impossible for me to really get much done. Every time I tried or managed to get half of one thing done, someone was walking through the door. It made me want to not be there so I could enjoy it, too.

On the plus side, everyone knows I’m stressing at work, and they’re letting me come in today at 1pm instead of 10:30. So this girl actually got to sleep in a little bit (until 9:30) and I get to relax a bit before rushing back to work. 1pm to 6pm isn’t that awful. And then I’ll just have two more days to suffer through and then I’ll be golden. I’m so ready for Saturday already.

I’m also going to try to leave earlier on Friday. Mostly, because I’m scheduled until 8pm, and we have 4 cashiers on from 6pm – 8pm, and to me that makes absolutely no sense. It’s too much when we have 3. Last week I did the beer cooler for an hour and then just ran around filling dressings and sauces and stocking shit until I ran out of stuff to do. We have 2 registers, it’s just too hard to have 3 cashiers unless it’s super busy (and that extra cashier can be a runner).

I promise I’ll cut back on the work talk in my next entry, if you can’t tell already, it’s all I’ve really been doing. Aside from the few nights I’ve hung out over at C’s. I beat him badly at Mario Kart on Monday. And I’ll probably beat him tonight, too. C and I have gotten close. I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

In other news, I ordered a mouse for my laptop off of eBay. It’s hard to play an online computer game using just the trackpad. It’s possible, I’m doing it, but it’s harder to. So I ordered one. 2 weeks ago. After a week of my item not being shipped, I sent a message to the seller, basically asking if there was a reason it was taking so long to send, because the item said it’d be there by that Friday when I ordered. And I know things can get lost, but it should not take a week to ship. Apparently, they lost my order, said they would get back to me. Took their sweet time, I wasn’t sure if I was getting it, so I ordered another mouse. Instead of letting me know that yes, they found it and will send it to me, they just sent that mouse. At this point I just wanted my money back, but I guess I should’ve just said that. Oh well. I’m getting two mouses for my laptop. I should’ve just bought a good one for $20 at that rate. If one breaks, I guess I have a backup now, right?

This weekend I plan on getting myself back into the groove of things. It’s too hard right now with work driving me crazy. So I’m holding off. For now. By this weekend I want to get my ipsy and Birchbox posts out, and start working on a few posts to get ready for next week. I’m going to get back on track, it’s just taking me a little longer than I wanted to. Haven’t even had motivation for yoga yet, or to fix my bullet journal. At this rate, I’ll just start fresh.

I hope everyone is doing well, I’m coming back soon! I have goals again, and motivation to do them. Just lacking the time, but I’ll get there. Just a few more days to get through. Fingers crossed next week doesn’t suck as much.

  1. I’m glad to hear they’re finally cutting you some slack at work! One of my coworkers texted me the other night and asked if I could come in earlier and in turn get to leave earlier instead of closing- I was like YES haha
