Well last Saturday I worked with Kelly. I haven’t worked with her since I came back after the summer. It was actually pleasant to work with her and she didn’t stand around doing nothing, we both were doing side work constantly so then when it was time to leave it was quick. But everyone else at work was sick or people called in sick or left early. I was quite afraid of getting sick for my busy week.
So back to Sunday. During my scheduled 4-8 shift I took a nap. That made me feel a lot better. I can’t remember what else I did Sunday night beside DMS homework.
Monday I had class 10-12 and 4-6. Then after my class I went to the gym. There were too many people there so I didn’t do my normal workout. I napped between my two classes. Then from about 8-11 I studied with Tom for my test Tuesday.
Friday night I worked at 5. It was slow and we had a new waitress there learning. So there were 4 of us. She was just bussing tables and hostessing and such but she really just stood around. I kept doing all the side work throughout the night and realized she’s supposed to be doing it. I think they are having the wrong person train her. Hollie is training her and Hollie always stands around doing nothing and letting other people do work. But her friends came in on my turn but they wanted the new girl to wait on her so we sort of took it together. They left me a good tip. And I couldn’t live w/ myself if I just kept it since I got it because of Nicole so I gave her some. I asked a few cooks what I should do and they all said I should keep it all since she’s just standing around doing nothing. Plus I thought later her friends might say the tip that they gave and then she might be surprised or mad I didn’t share it with her. The other 2 servers left early because we were slow, then I started getting busy. So I was able to make more money. Actually I ended up with more money than I’ve made so far on a Friday (since August). At the end of the night I had to carpet sweep under more tables because I got so busy at the end. I wanted to be a slacker and not really carpet sweep under the back tables since it was so late and I actually had plans later in the night, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I can’t leave w/o work being done that’s why it takes me the longest to close and why they have me closing every shift I work. Well the table in the corner that I was debating not sweeping under I found a $10 bill. It was wrinkled up. I bet it was there when the last girl was sweeping under it (I didn’t see her move the table to get anything in the corner).
I decided to break up Friday a little since this would be one huge paragraph. Then I got home and someone was parked in our driveway. I could still make it into the garage though. I just couldn’t back into it. Then I learned it was the car Maggie and Kate came in. They thought I would be home by then but I wasn’t since I got out of work late. Our neighbors are/were having this big 2 day party. They somehow ended up going there since Dave didn’t’ answer the door when they knocked. WE kept the door locked because drunks kept walking in and not realizing it was the wrong house. Dave didn’t answer the door because people kept banging on it and ringing the bell all night. I made a sign for night 2 saying wrong door and with arrows and saying don’t knock on the door. It worked a little. Friday night Maggie, Kate, and I dressed up as our “Hug Dealers” this is what we came up with after so long. We had pink shirts that said hugs not drugs and pink purses and hats and we were dealing “hugs” or the hug candies (that are likes kisses). Adam also joined us (Kate’s BF) but he wasn’t in costume. We went to a party at the “Frisbee house” Maggie is on the ultimate Frisbee team and she lives in one house of people on the team. The party was at the other house. It wasn’t that fun since Kate, Adam and I only knew about 3 total people. Maggie knew everyone. After about an hr and a half we left (and Maggie stayed). Then we came back here and sat and talked for awhile and took some pictures. I’ll send you some later. Then when they left I went next door to see how this party was going. I’ll continue here next time.
Well while Kate, Adam and I were in my apartment (Dave and Timmy upstairs) I didn’t lock the door because they were going to be leaving soon. In 20 minutes time 4 different people walked right in thinking it was the party. If you walk up the front steps our door is straight ahead and theirs is to the right. After Kate and Adam left I went over to see what was up since some of my coworkers were there. I helped Raechel call her cab and get into the cab. I also helped pick up a little because people were spilling everything. Sheila, one of the people who lives there and a pizza hut coworker, was throwing up since before I got there. She was in the bathroom upstairs. She even made a party rules sign w/ Bo (another roommate) where it said to know when you’ve had too much to drink. Jesse (the 3rd roommate of which I knew since freshman year) doesn’t drink and didn’t buy any of the alcohol. He was in his room for awhile upstairs then when Sheila started throwing up he took care of her. Then after she was able to lie in bed he decided to mop the floor multiple times. Another reason I went over was to check it out because their music was shaking our walls. At one point Dave called me to ask them when they were going to turn down the music. Around 3:30am they turned down their main floor music. They left the music on in their garage until about 6pm the next day but I could only here that from our garage.
Someone else threw up in the hallway. It was a lot of cranberry juice. One of his friends was blaming it on what he ate not the enormous amounts of alcohol he drank. I’m not sure if I mentioned Jesse’s constant mopping of the floor or not. So I left there around 3:30 and people were constantly being retarded and then when I wasn’t retarded back they commented that I wasn’t drunk yet and that I had to get to drinking. That didn’t happen. I was going to drive Timmy home at this point but he was about to fall asleep on the couch. Dave was already asleep. We kept hearing people argue on the porch and being quite drunk and leaving to drive home. So we decided it was better to stay off the roads and eh spent the night sleeping on the couch. He was very tired. He pulled an all nighter Thursday night.
Jesse was using the fog machine so it was so hard to see inside. I learned this is actually why the cops came. There wasn’t a noise disturbance or anything. They only talked to one of the three roommates and said if there is another disturbance or anything he would be the one arrested. But he was the only one drunk that lived there. He just turned 23. Today at work I learned the cops were there for so long because they were chasing all the kids that ran. They only caught up to one person. Dave H. I used to work w/ him. He’s 21. They asked him why he ran. But at work today I heard all kinds of stories of stuff that didn’t actually happen and some stuff I don’t know about so I’m not sure what to believe for the rest of it. The cops did look around to “make sure there was no underage drinking” and Sheila said the cops were so cool and joking about it and they left. I’d have to say it was probably 80% or higher underage drinking which really shocked me when I first was over there Friday. It was more of a shock because Jesse is 21, Sheila 20, and Bo 23 so I thought they would have older friends.
I enjoyed the changing of the clocks this weekend. Saturday you might have noticed all I ate was potatoes. I did have ice cream about 11pm and then nachos and cheese when the cops were around because I was starving.
Today I woke up and didn’t really do much, watched a TV show then went to work. I got Ryan to close for me since he wanted more money so more hours. I had 2 tables while I was there but didn’t mind. I would still have 2 more hours there. He also made 40 bucks in the 2 hours before I got there so he was in a good mood and just wanted more. I’ve been writing this e-mail since I got home.
Before Saturday the only real food I had in the past week was Pizza. At the info session they provided pizza and other than that I didn’t any. I kept grabbing food on the go or sleeping through meal times then not wanting to cook.
I have an interview Nov 3 with Praxair. I got an e-mail saying I was pre-selected for an interview with Lockheed Martin but the interview slots didn’t open yet to sign up for one. I got the e-mail from them early. They aren’t supposed to be decided until Nov 1. But they are interviewing 120 people that day so they probably pre-selected everybody.
I don’t have a test until November 11, but I know that time will come around the corner before I know it.
Today I was about to leave work and then remembered I didn’t pick up this weeks paycheck or last weeks yet. Wednesday is payday.
O I forgot yesterday I cut my hair. I left the bottom layer the same length and just added layers taking about an inch off max. The layers help with holding the curl but I still wanted length. It was a spur of the moment hair cut. I wasn’t done when Kate and Maggie showed up. I just did 2 more snips and left. I could probably fix it up more but its just layers so nobody notices. I should probably use a mirror to check out the back though. I didn’t really add any there. Kate and Maggie said I’m brave cutting my own hair.
I should do a few more calculations for DMS for tomorrow but I feel like I’ve maxed out my brain from last week and I still want to rest. I probably forgot to mention some of what I did too. It was the longest week ever. It feels like it’s been a month since I’ve had psych. The last time I had psych was last Monday.
