So, on January 6th I started a new job. This time I'm working at an alternative education curriculum publisher. As it is a small business I have a great variety of tasks and no real job title. The owners are pretty nice so that's good for me. :)

The downside is that Greg landed a new job as well and his work schedule is Friday-Tuesday, and mine is of course a Monday-Friday. It kind of completely sucks we no longer get even 1 same day off. Makes my weekends go by much too quick as I barely get to enjoy them anyways. :(

So, today after I drop Greg off some lunch I think I'll be going for a motorcycle ride. Wheeee!

Mid-Late 2010 in Pictures!!!

Just thought I'd share this with you guys. :)
FYI: I gave up trying to put these in chronological order, so enjoy because they're pretty much not in order at all.

Well, Monday I got fired/laid off. The owner's son (major douchebag) phrased it like a firing, but in reality my job was eliminated. They weren't hiring a replacement, just giving someone who's department they eliminated my job. Honestly, I was a bit relieved. I liked the fact that they let me have peacock hair. But, I started to hate everything else about the job. The people I worked with were the most shallow and materialistic people I'd ever met. I guess in retrospect I had a lot of trouble relating to them which is probably why they ganged up, said I said some things I didn't say, and sat on facebook all day... Which I didn't. I have a smart phone, ya think I'm stupid enough to sit on facebook on work computers? LOL!

So, I went home, filed for unemployment and started putting more applications in. In a funny turn of events kind of way, I got an interview yesterday out of the few applications I put in off of Craigslist. In an even more amusing way, I landed the job of the one and only interview I went to yesterday AND I got a raise and get to work an industry where I feel I can make a difference. It's in special education but in the administrative and materials writing sectors. Wooh.

Also, if any of you consider buying the AhhBra off of the infomercial please don't. It's a shitty product, it's made in China for about $2 a bra compared to the $59.99 you'll pay for 3 of them. Furthermore, I had to process over 500 returns a day, most of which were women bitching about the obvious failures of the bra and how many bras arrived with holes already. 500+ returns a day can't all be crazy, can they? It's basically a sports bra made out of hoisery, it has no support, no lift, the seams tear/run constantly and the sizing chart is wayyy off! Oh, and if you want to be really grossed out, the returns come back to the warehouse. There's a few men in the warehouse who remove the funk people left on them (deodorant, hair, unknown debris, etc.) with lint removers/sponges and send them back out the unknowing customers. They don't even wash/sanitize them. You're welcome for the heads up. :)

Had a good Christmas with the lover.

I have a job I don't hate that allows me to have peacock hair.

I didn't fail any classes, including Statistics which I thought for sure I'd fail.

Life is good for the most part.
