So, how’s it going? Work’s been butts as of late, been alternating between closing and opening in two different parts of the same department. Almost cut the tip of my left thumb off, and broke a tooth (I guess it was brittle or something?). Hopefully the tooth can be removed, I’ve been looking around for places that my dental insurance is accepted at. The thumb is also healing well, as in it no longer bleeds profusely and the skin is mostly reattached, though I may need to cut some off. Oh well, it’s a damn good thing everyone seemed to be having a sale on first aid items. lol
Anyhow, I hope you’re all doing well. I don’t get online as much as I used to (too tired orz), so I have been missing a ton of stuff. The few times I have been on have been fav and run marathons lol.
I will say, however, that the twitter feed for The Red Wedding was probably the most entertaining thing I’ve seen yet. =w= On the one hand, the reactions I’m seeing are funny, and yet on the other, I totally know where they’re coming from. orz
Well, I’m off to bed soon. Hopefully I’ll see you all more often in some manner! If not, I’ll try to at least get on enough to skulk in the shadows from time to time.
So dad and I went to the car lot to look at the car he and my mom thought I should get (which was btw a really awesome car, was fairly priced and had under 100,000 miles on it), but someone beat us to the punch and had purchased it shortly after my parents left the day before. :’( We went driving around to look at other used cars, and did find a place that had one that seemed pretty good (a bit more expensive but with much less miles on it). We checked it out and it looked and drove great, but… You know when something feels like it’s too good to be true? We kind of got the feeling from that car. It was nice, but both of us felt that something might have happened to it to make it so cheap.
A quick search online showed a car that cost just under a thousand dollars more, but was much, muuuuch better and sold by a more reputable place, so I think I’m just going to have to save up more and hope they’ll have it when I’m ready for it. ;w; Either way, the search continues…
Out of curiousity, what kind of cars do you all like? I’m rather partial to Volkswagen models myself (specifically the Beetle and Jetta). I’ve seen firsthand how good those crumple zones of theirs work in an accident, and like the security of the newer vehicles. Also Beetles just look awesome, okay? XD
I used to like Dodge cars until all the ones we had kept breaking down. :’D
Hallo, long time no speaky. =w=/ How are you all doing? I’ve been well, especially since…
I MAY FINALLY GET A CAR THAT DOESN’T SUCK BALLS HARDER THAN A DYSON IN A ROOM FULL OF BOUNCING BALLS :U
Here’s hopin’ things work out. DX I really want to be able to drive myself to work. As well as other places.
Whew, I think I’ve been gone from tumblr for at least… a week and a half? Perhaps more? Anyhow, I have obviously missed a lot. I hope you’re all doing well. ♥♥♥
The reason I’ve been offline (at least in regards to tumblr and some other old haunts of mine) is just because I couldn’t remember my password and was too lazy to look it up after I finally upgraded the ol’ computer. Said computer is very nice, and I hope I do not have to bother with such a hassle for a long, looooooong time. But yes, it runs well and there have been no issues as of yet. :)
While I love you all, it was… nice, I think, to be offline for the most part. For one, it let me see how much time I was dedicating to scrolling through posts on tumblr (which, mind you, was a lot). Secondly, this new window of time allowed me to do other things which I had been wanting to do for some time (such as drawing!). Not that I have anything to show for it, but oh well. I know I have a higher res version of a picture I’d done for a character app that I could upload, but I’m hoping to draw something nicer before that.
Work has been an amazing failure, and the job hunt, which has been on and off the past few months, is now in full swing. I’ve talked with the store manager and a person from human resources, to no avail. I only see the department (and in a roundabout way, the company as a whole) going down a hole, and I am eager to get away as soon as possible, for fear that I may end up on an episode of Snapped! one day. While I may pass jokes about homicide and violence about some folks, I find that these feelings are more often than not genuine when concerning certain people at work, and feel it would be prudent to remove myself from such a negative situation before I feel I am forced to act on these feelings.
To put things short on why I wish to leave: It has been made clear to me that nobody in corporate wants to do anything to fix the problem in our department, and that human resources doesn’t believe that the problem is as bad at it is. I am (as well as several coworkers) are taken advantage of, talked down to, and essentially treated like shit on a regular basis, and any attempt to bring this to the light ends up with us being shut down. My department manager is doing her damndest to force another coworker to either change her job availability or quit, even going so far as to use shoddy scare tactics and lying. The assistant manager is even worse for reasons I shall not touch up on, and I am constantly leaving work drained, both physically and emotionally.
Nobody should have to go through this, so I’m looking for a way out. And I’ll do my best to help some other coworkers find a way out, because they deserve better, too. Wish us luck! If things go our way, we’ll all be handing in our two weeks notice within a week of one another. While I usually do not wish suffering upon others, I will have to make the exception for those certain people mentioned in my department. It’s about time they reap what they sowed.
On a more positive note, I finally saw Wreck-It-Ralph today, and it was fantastic. Tomorrow (or today, who knows), sis and I will watch Rise of the Guardians, another movie we’d been waiting for. P: We’re really excited.
I’d type more, but this post just keeps getting longer and longer, and my eyes hurt something awful. I’ll let you all be and probably go to sleep. You all have a wonderful time! ♥♥♥
Here’s my Super Secret Santa pic, for Fellier/Perihn! Thank you for your patience, work has been… less than forgiving this holiday season. lol ; 7 ;)
Inked traditionally with pens, colored digitally in Manga Studio 5. I love you, water color brushes. If only I really knew how to use you. :’D
*goes to cry in a corner because wtf is this coloring, really*
So I finally fixed the issues I’d been having with Sai and several art programs with my tablet. :’D I can finally draw with pen pressure and no wonky lines again!
Seriously, though. Tablet PC Components in Windows? Fuck that. e H e
Also this cheddar bacon gouda is a bit disappointing. I was expecting a smoother texture, a bit more flavor, too. Oh well. :U *shovels in mouth because bacon*
Ash, I got the ornament! I showed it to my family and they were really impressed by it. I think my mom wants me to commission turtle things from you. lol The little guy is now hanging next to the other ones that you’ve sent me from the top of my desk hutch. That way I can stare at him all year round. = 7 =)
Also, dark chocolate peanut butter is fucking delicious. Just sayin’. P:
*goes back into her hole to nom on delicious things
