I went back to the old blog format. I didn't really like the new one. Font was too small and since I'm half blind I couldn't read what I wrote. : )

Things are going okay here. Still working at that temp job until I hear back from the insurance place. I'm hoping to hear from them by the end of the week. He said I was the top contender for the job. I'm not too happy with the under 40 hrs though but if I can get at least 38 a week, I can make it. Only made 36 for this week, not good. Will be going in early all week if possible to have a better paycheck.

School is going okay. This class isn't as tough (yet) as the last one. I made a 10 out of 10 points for my first paper. : )

Team assignment is due next Sunday or Monday so hoping everyone gets thier stuff done in time.

I've been feeling slightly lonely lately. I think it's the weather. Gets cool and you start thinking about snuggling. It'll pass, I'm sure.

Happy Fall Everyone!

Some days it pays to do nothing and just watch a marathon of shows. I spend the almost the whole day yesterday watching Smallville Season 7. Why? Because I could. Surprisingly, the kidlet even let me do so. She was watching her copies in her room. She likes to skip through scenes and I like to watch the whole thing. I do agree with her though, Tom Welling is a hottie!

I start my new job tomorrow. I'm not even sure what the dress code is for the place. I decided to wear some dressy jeans and a nice shirt. What can they do? send me home?

Class starts up again on Tuesday. My first paper is about making a critical decision (business decision) which will be hard since I don't have a job where I make those decisions. I'm am going to find out if I can use the decision process I used when I decided to quit the call center job. My only regret from that place is the paycheck. The pay was excellent but listening to people bitch and complain for six hours a day is not a thrilling job. I don't have the patience for it. If I ever have to call another customer service place, I will have more respect for the person on the other end of the phone. They are only trying to do thier job. It's not their fault the company is screwed up. Well, unless they are the ones that screwed up the account and then it's a whole other story. Oh yea, and those surveys they ask you to do before you talk to the agent, DO THEM. They are paid based on their scores. The higher the scores, the better pay they get. I'll be doing mine now.

Enjoy the coming week...

LIfe is crazy...

I was hired for the job that worked 8-5 but after less than two weeks, I got laid off!! Their business slowed down to much to keep me. Ain't life a bitch? I did find another job I start on Monday but have to work 11am to 7pm and drive to Waco every day. That parts sucks too but it's a job and I can't afford not to work. God, I wish my retirement plan would kick in! hahahaha (the lottery)
