apparently, i'm having issues this month. i've always been a teensy bit late to just about everything in life - it's commonly joked that i will be late to my own funeral, etc. but for some reason this month, i keep being VERY late to things. not one or two minutes, but a half hour here, twenty minutes there. while some employers will overlook clocking in one or two minutes late from time to time, i know that both of my employers will not continue to turn to the side and ignore my lateness, should this continue.

this morning, for example, i woke up ten minutes AFTER i had to leave in order to be to michaels on time. so what did my brainful head do in response? turned off the alarm and rolled over and slept until noon thirty. meh?! so i had to call them yet AGAIN and explain why i had a no call no show. again. sonja was surprisingly jovial about the whole thing, after i agonized over it for two hours before even picking up the phone. i just so very much hate showing up 10 or more min late, having to ring the bell to get in, and facing denise (or other, but usually denise) when she has to walk all the way up to let me in and FACE her as she's staring at me and unlocking the door, and having to have her repeat herself as to what she needs done in the store, when she's already given the schpiel to all the other workers who were on time. i kept saying that i felt i was a better worker than a lot of the hired Christmas help, ... but when i actually show up. on time.

a lot of beating myself up over it was because of incoming school. hell, if i can't manage to get myself to work at 7 am each day, at ALL, for only 3 days a week, how the hell am i going to handle working 35 hours and getting to SCHOOL at seven freaking a.m. on time FIVE days a week? what is WRONG with me?!? why am i screwing up everything this month? gah. i really hate me right now.

in other news, when i went to Clark yesterday, because i have been playing EQ again, it felt like i was on a lengthy quest or task:

aubrey: Hail, a Financial Aid Advisor!
FAA: Hail, fair traveller.
aubrey: i need to complete my [financial aid papers]!
FAA: Great! in order to complete this task, I need for you to fetch me one [final form], along with the tails of [two online forms] from the computer there.
*aubrey goes and kills said forms and collects tails*
*hands them over*
FAA: Great! Thank you, Aubrey, for your assistance in this matter. We now need you to obtain [text books] for your journey.
*aubrey heads to book store*
*finds her two algebra books*
*gives them to cashier*
Cashier: Good work, Aubrey!
Your faction with Clark has increased.
Your faction with friends has increased.
Your faction with second job has decreased.

*aubrey heads over to the advisors office, fills out a form and hands to receptionist*
*experience music sounds loudly*
Receptionist: Thank you, Aubrey! I need you to med for a few moments, as there is only one health advisor working today.
*aubrey meds and forages for a bit*
You have become better at Reading Robert Jordan! (56)
Advisor: Hail, Aubrey! What can i [help] you with today?
Aubrey: I need to get a pin number
Advisor: ....
Aubrey: fine, i need HELP obtaining a pin number.
Advisor: Indeed, young traveller! the number you seek is... blah.
Aubrey: i also need HELP getting a student i.d.
Advisor: Wonderful news! Travel the trecherous hallways and visit the security desk. There, you will find a [seeker of safety] to help you with the next step.
*aubs wanders the hallways and finds desk*
aubrey: hail, a security officer! I seek a [student i.d.]!
SO: *looks up from desk and looks you up and down, deciding if you are friend or foe* Certainly, Aubrey, we need you to bring us one [winter schedule], and a [receipt] from the book store for $3.
*aubrey travels all over the Gaiser Zone obtaining items*
*gives them to SO*
Your faction with Clark College Security has Increased.
Your faction with Just Graduated Hoodlums has Decreased.

SO: fantastic, fair traveller, we just need you to pose for a picture!

etc. i'm done.

It's probably because you're so tired, if not just physically then mentally too. I mean two jobs and school? I don't know how you do it

the thing is, i'm not going to school yet. it's just two jobs. i mean, sure, there's been lots of stress lately, so freaking much to accomplish in a small amount of time, but why can't i at least be on TIME to things?

for example, i need to leave in 15 min., and i'm here in my pajammas and daydreaming of a burrito i have in the fridge.

My last class of algebra I shut down. I knew I had to study, knew I had to work it, but I just did everything else instead. It's like my brain just refused to face it.

and right aroudn this time of the quarter, i'm hitting that thing again where i shut down. i hate it, but i can't make myself do otherwise. and the fact that it's freezing and POURING rain when i would need to make my half hour walk to work certainly doesn't help.

so i shall skip class and watch Xanadu instead.

This had me giggling..the EQ part, not about the late part.
it's getting increasingly hard for me to wake up in the morning too. I got up to do my morning things and actually fell asleep on the bathroom floor a week ago.

*shakes head*
At least it was clean.

LOL Yes I did! I was lying in the yoga 'child' position on my face..on the floor. It was um....yeah..I don't even remember laying down. Sometimes I just get so sleepy I fall asleep anywhere.

As far as being late goes, I have the advantage that I was born 3 weeks late. It's a wonderful excuse.

The EQ bit was brilliant, my dear. It does make me wonder if your playing EQ has something to do with your sleeping in, though.

see? i told faetal that she could have kept the baby in her womb for three more weeks so that Laurel would be born on halloween!! granted, it was already 10 lbs 12 oz when born...

ha ha, and i'm quite certain that eq had something to do with sleeping in. i forbid myself to play it or wow anymore.

i started out as one, but then my main ended up being a dwarf hunter, Catrune. and i played a human warlock for quite awhile, Mollymoo, and started a mage, her sister, Missymoo. or maybe it was reversed. and their bastard warrior sister, Shadowofmoo.

Re: Whoa!!!
although i haven't been to work in forever due to some extra time off, i'm dreading going back tomorrow, though i really have zero reason to. effort, i guess.

more sleep and less worrying? sounds like a fortune cookie :)

I'm a chronically late person too. Try not to be so hard on yourself. This time of year takes a toll on everybody. *hugs*

Hee hee :) funny

I too vote for you are burning out, even if you get proper rest I doubt you are getting proper rest and proper play! Yeah you do need play and with out it you are gonna get... unpredictable.

The answer... I'm not quite sure, but I think this will pass.

i agree. at least by responding to old posts and getting them out of my inbox, even though i'm not accomplishing anything concrete, it seems like more of an accompishment than playing eq.
