so my 29th birthday is looming right around the corner, a bit less than 4 weeks away.

i woke up this morning feeling utterly OLD. egads. i immediately wondered what the hell i was doing with my life, being 29 (practically) and sleeping on a futon mattress in my closet (don't ask), and working retail. i could almost feel the wrinkles forming on my face. my back hurt. egads, if my back hurts this much (namely, my right shoulder), how the hell am i going to feel at 35? 40? *siiiiiiiiiiigh*

so i'm cleaning my room. hanging up my laundry.

there was a lady that came through my line yesterday. her and i were joking around about things, and she kept yawning. i told her to stop, because she was going to get me going.

she replies "well, i just stood in line for 3 hours at *mumbledsomething*, AND did that AFTER i worked a full day of work. so i have you SO beat."

i froze and glared at her. it was 8 pm. i had been on my feet working since 8 am, and had worked 15 hours the day prior, all on my feet as well.

so i calculated after i had thrust her receipt at her and she had left.

between thursday and friday, i was at work 30 hours. 30 hours in two days. okay, subtract the two hours between shifts on thurs, and the one hour on fri. that's still 27 hours. okay, and so i had a lunch each day at office max, subtract that, and it's still 26 hours actually on the clock. in two days.


what am i DOING to myself? and more importantly, WHY?

oh, and if you would like a good ego boost, you still have time to get in on this meme. i'm finding that i love telling each of you what makes me so happy to have you on my friends list. even though i'm hardly ever around.

Hm, why?
Work your butt off now so you wont have to later? Save up, pay off debt and what not so you can get your independence back. That sort of thing?
Mar. 6th, 2004 04:30 am (UTC)
yeah. that sort of thing ;)

we'll see how things play out, but for right now, especially seeing how many people come in daily to get applications, i'm happy to be holding onto my two jobs with an iron grip...

Yeah, I know that feeling.

and that is precisely why i love you, too, my dear!

and my philosophy in life (i can't think of how to put it in one profound statement because it's too farking early) is basically that life is too short to get worked up over things. laughter makes the world go round. and if it doesn't? at least it makes it a little easier to handle!

Makes me feel better to know your older than I.

though i notice that after tonight the shorter + lighter that my hair becomes, the younger i look.

or so i think.

I honestly think I make my opinions known WAY TOO OFTEN to you, but here I go again.
reiterating what I've already expressed before.

You have two jobs, and its absolute hell, right?
So why not get all those nagging debts out of your way and THEN quit your second job.
It'd be awful if you quit michaels, and in 6 months I became so broke that I'd have to move in with my mother.. you'd have to find an apartment that wouldnt see your "eviction" status.
You stil have stuff that needs to be shipped up here.
While you've got extra money you should catch up on all these things (cept maybe the 15,000 jeep shit)
I'd consider it in the "cover your ass" section of life.
When our lease ends, I'd like to continue it, and even more so I'd like to move Joel in with us.. but at some point, we might move out on our own.. I just want you to be OKAY if that happens.
So please, take care of yourself before you cut off 1/3rd of your income.

naw, i'm not quitting michaels any time soon. one of my coworkers put it into perspective for me: it's too much fun.

as annoying as the management issues can get sometimes, and as irritating the dear old grannies with their crotchety crafts become, i will still love working there.

'Into the flood again, same old way it was back when...'
You never told me why you loved me... especially since the guy who introduced us has quit Livejournal. Though back then my heart was not so consumed with EVIL (pronounced E-vil)

Re: 'Into the flood again, same old way it was back when...'

Keep the two jobs for awhile until you are back on your feet financially. Once you are in good shape economically, then consider quiting one of the jobs, or even looking for a full time job with benefits and quiting both jobs.

yeah, i'm still dinking at what i want to do with my life.... i'm sure i'll get a clue eventually ;)
